Jersey’s Competition Authority’s fine Thomsonfly. What message are we trying to send!?

It’s been a bit quiet on the blogging front for the past few weeks. But rather like London buses, you have nothing to write about for weeks and then 3 stories come along at once.

Firstly, there’s the mighty JCRA levying a crushing fine of, wait for it….. £10,000 on TUI (parent company of Thomsonfly) for failing to advise them back in September of their acquisition of First Choice. Apparently, because Thomsonfly were flying to the island, they should have advised the JCRA in order that they could assess the competitive effects of the acquisition.

Despite the fact that the JCRA has no power to order TUI not to proceed with the merger (as if that would make a difference!), they still decided to fine them for an administrative oversight. What sort of message does this send to other airlines or businesses we are desperately trying to attract to Jersey? I hope the £10k fine which is going to the States will be handed over to Jersey Airport to use for marketing activities.
