Description of Conduct

On 12 September 2017, Qantas Airways Limited (Qantas) and Jetstar Airways Pty Limited (Jetstar) applied for re-authorisation to continue coordination involving Qantas and the Jetstar branded low cost carriers and as applicable, the full service airline shareholders (Vietnam Airlines and Japan Airlines). These arrangements were authorised by the ACCC for five years in March 2013 (A91314 & A91315). Re-authorisation has been sought for a period of ten years.

Under the arrangements, Qantas and Jetstar propose to continue to coordinate all network, scheduling, pricing, marketing, purchasing, customer service and resourcing decisions between:

- Qantas, Jetstar Airways, Jetstar Asia, Jetstar Pacific and Jetstar Japan
- Jetstar Japan and Japan Airlines
- A Jetstar joint venture, its local partner airline and any other airline in the Jetstar Group to the extent they overlap or potentially overlap.

On 24 November 2017, the ACCC issued a draft determination that proposed to re-authorise the arrangements for a further five years.

On 16 February 2018, the ACCC issued a final determination re-authorising the arrangements until 31 March 2023.
