Airline antitrust regulations exist because to protect consumers from higher prices by ensuring the continuation of market competition. The Federal Government enforces antitrust laws including The Sherman Antitrust Act, The Clayton Act, and The Federal Trade Commission Act. Airlines have a history of trouble running into antitrust laws because the industry’s high concentration (small number of firms) makes it is easier to collude prices. Since it is such a big industry, (it has a large number of customers) there is support behind the regulation.
