12/1 Lufthansa offers EU fresh concessions over Air Berlin buy up

Edited by walterp on . Posted in News In Brief

German aviation giant Lufthansa has offered concessions to encourage the European Commission to green-light its planned purchase of parts of bankrupt Air Berlin, the Brussels authority told AFP. “We have received remedies” from Lufthansa concerning the case, a spokesman said. As Europe’s highest competition authority, the Commission is examining the impact the German group’s plans would have on the continent’s aviation market. The Frankfurt-based airline group hopes to take over 81 aircraft from Air Berlin’s 140-strong fleet, plus takeoff and landing slots as well as Austrian subsidiary Niki.
