Lufthansa gave way in the dispute over the canceled feeder flights for Condor and wants to extend the Special Prorate Agreement until March 2022. A crane spokesman confirmed this to Reuters. Previously, Condor moved before the Federal Cartel Office and the Court of the European Union.

The holiday airline does not maintain its own feeder flights for its long-haul connections. This is due to historical reasons, because Condor was previously a subsidiary of Lufthansa. Even after the sale, they initially worked closely together. Towards the end of 2020, however, the crane sent a "blue letter" that would have taken effect on June 1, 2021. Condor took legal action against this.

After the first examination, the Federal Cartel Office stated that Lufthansa would abuse its dominant position to the detriment of Condor. The EU Commission also got involved and verbally reprimanded the German government. With Eurowings Discover, the crane group wants to grow even on long-haul tourism and obviously position itself against Condor. The approach is criticized by the trade unions, the EU Commission and the Federal Cartel Office.

Lufthansa still wants to terminate the contract with Condor, but is now ready to extend the contract until March 2022. This proposal should also be a message to the Federal Cartel Office, as this could even force Lufthansa to continue with a notice. The holiday airline concerned did not want to comment on the latest developments. A spokeswoman only referred to ongoing discussions with Lufthansa.
