Europe’s second-highest court has backed a challenge by 11 airlines against an €800m (£583m) European Commission freight cartel fine.

The General Court of the European Union said there were “internal inconsistencies” in the Commission’s 2010 decision.

Of the firms, Air France was fined the largest amount – €182.9m – while KLM was fined €127.2m.

The two carriers merged to form Air France-KLM in 2004.

Other carriers involved were Air Canada, Martinair, British Airways, Cargolux, Cathay Pacific Airways, Japan Airlines, LAN Chile, Qantas, SAS and Singapore Airlines.
