Description of Conduct

On 15 February 2017, the ACCC issued a draft determination proposing to grant authorisation for ten years. The ACCC also granted interim authorisation to enable Etihad and Air Serbia to commence joint activities under the Co-operation Agreement.

On 5 April 2017, the ACCC issued a final determination granting authorisation to Etihad and Air Serbia for ten years.
