Abstract: This paper is a case study of a Japanese merger control in the airline industry. The objective is to investigate the underlying principles of the Fair Trade Commission of Japan (JFTC) through a domestic merger on airlines, where reports are available. From applying a checklist arranged by Röller et al. (Working Paper No. 543, The Research Institute of Industrial Economics, 2000), the merger control policy of the JFTC is competition-oriented, systematic designed and transparent. But the direction of the policy is a kind of regulatory one.
