Qantas (ASX:QAN) is seeking further information from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) regarding its opposition to the airline's planned acquisition of Alliance Aviation Services.

Qantas remains confident that the acquisition would not reduce competition in the market, and has requested a meeting with the ACCC to understand its decision.

The airline argues that the competitive landscape in Australia's aviation industry is intensifying and that the proposed acquisition would boost Qantas' ability to service the resource sector.

Qantas' share price is up 2% the past five days.
