Competition refuses to investigate the airlines for raising prices following allegations of the Balearic islands

The CNMC ensures that there is no process in place against companies and states that have not received any complaint in this regard. Its role, say sources in the agency, would only make sense if they had made some sort of pact prices between all the companies, that is to say, a poster, and there is no check in place for that type of suspicion.
