Representing the interests of an airport infrastructure operator in a case initiated by the Russian FAS for violation of Articles 15 and 16 of the Law on Protection of Competition

Russian FAS initiated a case against the airport infrastructure operator, the head of the region, the regional government and several regional ministries for violation of Articles 15 and 16 of the Law on the Protection of Competition. The subject of the investigation by the antimonopoly service was the circumstances of the implementation of the investment project for the construction of the air terminal complex of the international airport.

During the consideration of the case, KIAP employees were able to prove that, despite the fact that the defendant concluded an agreement for the organization of data and documents exchange for subsequent participation and ensuring the winning of the airport infrastructure operator in the selection of an investor, the actions of the defendants did not limit, eliminated or prevented competition.

As a result, the antimonopoly authority made a decision to terminate the case due to the fact that the defendants have not violated the antimonopoly legislation.
