July 4, 2019

Vinge has assisted Nobina with a complaint to the Commission about Finland having granted loans under conditions not on market terms to the Finnish bus transport company Helsingin Bussiliikenne Oy.

The Commission has now found that Finland granted 54.2 million euros in illegal state aid, which must be recovered from Helsingin Bussiliikenne Oy.

Nobina is the leading operator in public transport services in the Nordic countries and provides bus transport services to almost one million people in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark. 

Vinge’s team was led by Martin Johansson, partner, and included the associate Ebba Thoms, amongst others.
