Greek airline merger blocked by Europe

Saturday, 27 Jan, 2011 0

A proposed merger of Aegean Airlines and Olympic Air has been blocked by the European Commission.

After a 10-month investigation, the Commission decided the tie-up of the two Greek airlines would lead to higher prices and reduced quality of service for four million customers.

The airlines said an opportunity had been lost and the decision would have negative consequences for the Greek economy.
