EU Sets 30-Day Deadline for Comment on Charleroi, Ryanair Probe

Aug. 17 (Bloomberg) -- European Union antitrust authorities will seek comments on whether an airport used by Ryanair Holdings Plc in Belgium received government aid that may have benefited some budget carriers over competitors.

The European Commission in March extended an investigation into government support for Belgium’s state-owned Charleroi airport to examine changes to Ryanair’s contracts on airport access and aid from the local Walloon regional government.

The Brussels-based regulator is inviting interested parties to contact them about the case as part of its efforts to establish whether Belgium broke the bloc’s state aid rules, according to a statement published on the EU’s website.
