Summary of Decision

The Competition Commission, with its unanimous decision, rejected the complaint of the Consumer Protection Center (KEPKA) concerning the operation of car parks at Thessaloniki Airport "Macedonia" (SKG) by the company under the name "BORIPOS MOE ", with registered name "Cargo Service & Representations ", to which the operation of these parking lots was awarded by contract. In particular, the Commission did not find any imposition by the leasing company "Cargo Service & Representations", of unreasonable charges for parking vehicles in the three parking spaces of SKG in violation of the provisions of article 2 of law 703/1977. Nor did it find any breach of these provisions by the Hellenic Air Force (the lessor) regarding any anti-competitive consequences of the contract in question, and did not consider that there was any need for further investigation by the Competition Commission.

Taking into account the factual analysis and, in particular, the comparison of the company’s revenue and expenditure from the operation of the parking spaces, there was no evidence of the imposition of unreasonable charges by the Cargo Service & Representations and therefore no abuse of its dominant position took place. Also, no behavioral measures were proposed to the Hellenic Air Force, which is not considered to constitute an undertaking in this case, while it was taken into account that the determination of the lease does not fall within the scope of voluntary action of the Hellenic Air Force. The examination of the individual provisions of the contracts for the lease of parking spaces of SKG did not reveal the existence of anti-competitive conditions.

Judicial Means Final. Decision has not been appealed.
