The Competition Commission announced on February 14 that it had referred SA Airlink to the Competition Tribunal for prosecution on charges of excessive or predatory pricing. 

The complaints were lodged by Khwezi Tiya, Fly Blue Crane and the OR Tambo District Chamber of Business between 2015 and 2017. 

According to the Commission, an investigation found that Airlink contravened the Competition Act by abusing its dominance from September 2012 to August 2016 by charging excessive prices on the Johannesburg-Mthatha route. The Commission states further that consumers would have saved between R89m and R108m if Airlink had not priced excessively on this route.
