ATF Fuels wins JCRA Appeal in Jersey Royal Court Judgment 11.01.18

On 8 January 2018, the Royal Court of Jersey reached a Judgment which upheld an appeal by ATF Overseas Holdings (ATF) against a Decision by the Jersey Competition and Regulatory (JCRA). In March 2016, the JCRA had found that ATF, the sole supplier of aviation fuel at Jersey airport, had abused a dominant position by refusing to supply fuel to Aviation Beauport Ltd on terms that would allow resale to aircraft owners. The Court found that ATF’s refusal to supply was not an abuse, and that ATF had not engaged in anti-competitive price discrimination.

RBB acted for ATF on this appeal, with Alistair Lindsay from Monckton Chambers. An expert report from Derek Ridyard is cited in the Court’s Judgment.
