The European Court of Justice has finally dismissed a lawsuit by Lufthansa against aid at Frankfurt Hahn Airport and agreements with Ryanair on fees under the reference number C-453 / 19P.

The process has dragged on since 2014. At that time Lufthansa brought a lawsuit against the approval of the EU Commission for aid that Fraport, Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse had paid out to Hahn. In 2019, the General Court of the European Union ruled that the appeal is inadmissible, as Lufthansa has no party status due to the lack of use of Frankfurt-Hahn Airport. This view has now been confirmed by the ECJ, which means that the crane has finally lost the case.
