June 2 (Bloomberg) -- A court in Barcelona ruled that Vueling Airlines SA, the Spanish low-cost carrier, can’t pass on higher landing charges to clients who bought their tickets before the price hike was announced, Cinco Dias reported.

The court said Vueling can’t enforce a clause in their sales contract which allows them to charge clients extra after the government increased fees by 19 percent at Spanish airports, the newspaper said.

Ryanair Holdings Plc, which last month told customers they faced extra charges, may also be affected by the ruling, the newspaper said.

Vueling plans to appeal the decision, Cinco Dias said.
