Air New Zealand has served legal proceedings on Auckland International Airport over the company's increased landing fees and is understood to be withholding the first increase, due today.

The carrier, the airport's biggest customer, filed the proceedings on Wednesday for an action based on several claims that AIAL failed to properly consult with airlines on the increases as it is required to do under statute.

AIAL announced three annual increases totalling 19.4%, with the first, of 8.5%, taking effect from September 1. The others were to be introduced next year and in 2002.
