On December 7th, the American Antitrust Institute will host its third annual Airline Roundtable. Experts in antitrust and regulation from government, industry, advocacy, and academia will discuss major competition issues facing the airline industry and consumers of air travel. Recent antitrust and regulatory events in the airline industry make this an especially timely program, including: developments in opening domestic aviation markets to international competition; market entry issues surrounding airport infrastructure and access; and public and private enforcement regarding potentially anticompetitive agreements.
This year's Roundtable will focus on challenges to competition, with the goal of focusing antitrust and regulatory aviation policies to promote rivalry, innovation, and consumer benefits. The day will include a "Year in Review," three panels, a luncheon speaker, and roundtable discussions.
