The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) today gave approval to the continuation of the joint service agreement (JSA) between British Airways and Qantas for a further five years.

Roger Maynard, British Airways` director of investments and alliances, said: The JSA on the kangaroo routes has been in place for 10 years and we have always said it is pro-consumer and pro-choice.

It gives travellers more flights, lower air fares, and the best connections on the kangaroo routes between Australia and the UK. We are delighted, but not surprised, at the outcome.

The decision comes after an exhaustive 21 month investigation by the ACCC, which culminated in a final hearing in December last year at which Virgin Atlantic claimed the JSA was anti-competitive.

Despite Virgin Atlantic`s objections, the ACCC confirmed its draft findings that the JSA was pro-competitive.
