Boryspil international airport paid a fine in the amount of $488,4 thousand for abusing of monopolistic position on the market of airports’ specialized services, as Yuriy Terentyev, the representative of the Antimonopoly Committee, wrote on Facebook.
Ukraine’s Antimonopoly Committee imposed a fine on the airport due to the setting of the overcharges of the subjects which provide service of ground service for the airports.
“The judicial process lasted for a year. Today we received a letter from Boryspil about the fulfillment of the decision and payment of the fine (bank transfer receipt attached). The Authorized Government official and the Department will examine the information received from Boryspil airport for the appropriate and complete fulfillment of the decision,” the message says.
Earlier, on June 18 the Supreme Court found the decision of the Antimonopoly Committee on the case against Boryspil legal. It was reported then that according to the decision of the committee, the airport abused its dominant position which was demonstrated in a baseless refuse to conform the applications for obtaining the certificate of conformance to conduct airport activity and protraction within the coordination of the internal documentation of Interavia Company.
It should be noted that earlier, the Antimonopoly Committee informed that Boryspil provided discounts for airport charges only for UIA in 2013-2016.
