The Italian competition authority announced on Wednesday that it would complain to the low-cost airline Ryanair and Wizz Air that it did not stop the controversial new pay-as-you-go policy. Competition in Italy, Antitrust, "has decided to initiate infringement proceedings" by its ruling against Irish and Hungarian companies from last week, in his statement. The Competition Law had asked both companies to stop their new passenger luggage policy. "The continuation of the request for additional provisions on a substantial element of the air transport contract provides an inadequate reflection of the ticket price and prevents price comparisons with other companies by misleading the consumer." explained the Competition Law on October 31st. Both companies Ryanair and Wizz Air have decided to allow only a small bag that can be placed beneath the seat, and first the consumer associations used the case, then the antitrust. The Spanish Consumer Association "Facua" protested against its authorities in August. Ryanair announced the event on August 24 announcing its intention to reduce boarding delays. Like Wizz Air, she applies it from November 1. This policy can generate additional revenue and reduce fuel costs, critical elements in the low cost airline business model. (Belga)
