Law Firm Launches Class Action on Air Freight

Law Firm, Maurice Blackburn is conducting a price fixing class action against major international airlines including Qantas, Lufthansa Cargo, Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Air New Zealand and British Airways in relation to the provision of international air freight services since 1 January 2000. The class action seeks damages and other relief on behalf of purchasers of air freight services for losses suffered as a result of the alleged cartel conduct by the airlines.
Group members are all those persons resident in Australia as at 11 January 2007 who during the period 1 January 2000 to 11 January 2007 paid identified amounts totalling more than twenty thousand Australian dollars (AUD$20,000) for the carriage of goods to or from Australia including in each instance a component by air.
On 27 September 2013 the Court ordered that any group member who wishes to participate in any distribution of any amount agreed in settlement of these proceedings shall, by no later than 4:00pm on 15 November 2013, deliver to Maurice Blackburn a completed Group Member Registration Form.
