State-run enterprise Boryspil International Airport (Kyiv) has denied information provided by Ukraine’s Antimonopoly Committee (UAC)that it prevents competition. The company does not acknowledge the fine imposed on Boryspil airport, the press service of the airport has told Interfax-Ukraine.
The Antimonopoly Committee imposed a UAH 68,000 fine on the airport.
According to the press service, the UAC ruled that that Boryspil airport is allegedly a monopolist in leasing premises. Steps taken by the airport to lease premises for passenger servicing organizations (including snack and hot drink machines) for the period of 10 years on the first, second and third floors of Terminal D in the conditions of the tender have been declared discriminative.
Acting Director General of Boryspil Airport Yevhen Dykhne said that the decision of the committee’s panel is groundless. It is not in line with Ukrainian law.
“The market where competition was violated has not been properly determined, the goods and territorial borders of the market have not been defined and the consumers and key players of the market have not been established. The committee decided not to study the procedure for leasing disputable assets and the law on leasing state-run assets was misapplied,” Dykhne said.
The committee said that the Boryspil Airport is a natural monopoly in leasing state-run property that is on the company’s balance sheet. Dykhne believes that this position is untenable because, according to the list of natural monopolies approved by the committee, Boryspil is a natural monopolist only in providing landing and takeoff services for aircraft, air safety and aircraft parking for a larger period of time than it is scheduled.
Boryspil International Airport is the main airport of Ukraine. The airport has two runways: one with a length of 4,000 meters and a width of 60 meters, and the second with a length of 3,500 meters and a width of 63 meters. Four passenger terminals, postal and cargo complexes are located on the territory of the airport. (interfax.com.ua)
