Air France-KLM is one of several airlines that may be facing a massive fine from Brussels. The Dutch-French airline is accused of cartel forming in the cargo transit market, ANP reports.

Insiders told the news wire that attempts to negotiate a settlement failed. Which means that fines amounting to millions of euros may be imposed on the involved airlines. 

The authorities suspect 11 airlines for making secret agreements between 1999 and 2006 on how they would deal with fuel and security surcharges and how to ensure that no discounts were granted.

The approach of the Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) to collusion between companies is not always the best decision for sustainability and environmental friendliness, said Economics Affairs Minister Henk Kamp. Quite often organizations reach agreements that are actually favorable for the environment, according to the Minister, but the watchdog stops deals dead in their tracks to prevent collusion between firms, Kamp said in a letter.
