Spain: Arriva will be allowed to compete with Renfe: CNMC

Spanish regulator CNMC approved on Thursday the resolution that will allow transport company Arriva to compete against the local company Renfe, providing rail services between A Coruña and Porto.
The coming of Arriva does not pose problems for the economic balance of the public service contract that Renfe has signed with the state, while it will benefit users by providing new routes and the possible offer of combined services to complement the rail service with connections to its local and intercity bus network.
The CNMC has indicated that Renfe Viajeros may request a review of this result if there is a significant change in the characteristics of the provision of the Arriva service, that is, “if there is a substantial difference between the actual impact and the estimate of the services within a minimum period of 2 years “.
