Abstract:
Monitoring the industry developments for maintaining competitive pressure is important, and assuring the access to facilities for new entrants to the market is important. It is a challenge for the regulatory agencies to consider what kind of competition policy should guide the regulatory policies of the airline services in Japan. In addition, there is a possible conflict between the Ministry and FTCJ over regulatory issues of pricing and routing. This paper will be organized as follows. Section 2 describes some of the recent cases involving competition policy in the Japanese airline industry and section 3 points out challenges in the competition policy in the future.
