The Italian Competition Authority opens an investigation against a company managing the airports of Milan for breach of Article 102 TFEU (CEDICOR / SEA)

On 20 December 2013, the Italian Competition Authority (the “Authority”) opened an investigation against SEA for an alleged abuse of dominant position that aimed at preventing the entry of a potential competitor into the management of the infrastructures of the airport of Milan Linate. Background SEA is an Italian company managing - both directly and indirectly - the airports of Milan Linate and Milan Malpensa under legal monopoly. Pursuant to Legislative Decree no. 18/1999, transposing the EU Directive no. 96/67/CE, the handling services (i.e., land-side assistance to aircrafts, passengers and third parties) for both general and commercial aviation are liberalised in the airports with over 3 million passengers per year and, therefore, shall be assigned in favour of third operators.
