BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union has re-imposed a fine on 11 air cargo companies totaling $835 million after the original decision was thrown out by a high court on a procedural issue.
After the initial fine had been annulled in 2015, the European Commission said Friday it fixed the original error and decide to re-establish the fines since the EU's General Court never rejected the antitrust case as such.
Among the 11 companies, Air France was fined $197 million and its strategic partner KLM $137 million. British Airways now faces a $112 million fine.
The Commission found that the companies colluded to fix the level of fuel and security surcharges.
