Case Study – Competition Damages: SAA

Share this page

Our analysis of damages was used to support our client’s claim for lost profits arising from a breach of competition law.

In 2010, the Competition Tribunal of South Africa (Tribunal) concluded that the incentives schemes which the state-owned airline, South African Airways (SAA), had offered travel agents between 2001- 2005 were prohibited under the Competition Act. This followed an identical ruling five years earlier relating to the period 1999-2001.
