In the ongoing dispute over the Lufthansa feeder flights, there is now a temporary interim solution for Condor, because the holiday airline can use it until October 30, 2022. A final decision by the German Federal Cartel Office is still pending.
Only recently it became known that the authority stated in an interim report that they believe that Condor may have a right to use the feeder flights. The declaration of the Federal Cartel Office fell strongly in favor of Condor, but is not yet a final decision. Both parties were asked to submit written comments.
For the time being, until October 30, 2022, Condor can continue to market flight connections with feeders and pick-offs operated by Lufthansa. Thus, the Special Pro Rate Agreement, the should have expired on March 10, 2022, continued for the time being. Condor confirmed that if you book by October 30, 2022, the feeder and pick-up flights operated by Lufthansa will be available.
However, this does not represent a final solution to the ongoing dispute. Rather, Lufthansa does not want to anticipate the final decision of the Federal Cartel Office and therefore decided once again to set up an interim solution. Condor actually received the notice some time ago, but the holiday airline took legal action against it.
