The EU Commission has approved Lufthansa’s plans to acquire Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter (LGW), a subsidiary of former German airline Air Berlin.
Lufthansa is bidding for a major part of Air Berlin, now at least part of it has been approved by the European Union’s regulators, but it remains subject to conditions.
LGW currently operates a fleet of 20 Bombardier Dash-8 Q400, 17 of them flying for Lufthansa subsidiary Eurowings. They were in service for Air Berlin until the German airline ended all flight operations on October 27th.
Lufthansa intends to fully integrate LGW into Eurowings’ fleet and operations.
