CAPA: Condor network has significant level of overlap with Lufthansa and Eurowings

    CAPA – Centre for Aviation, in a report entitled: ‘Lufthansa and Condor could reunite the cranes’, stated (10-May-2019) Condor’s scheduled summer network has a significant level of overlap with Lufthansa and Eurowings. There are 51 Condor routes, 24% of its airport pairs, that overlap with Lufthansa, and 30 routes, 14% of its airport pairs, that overlap with Eurowings in the week commencing 02-Sep-2019. In terms of capacity, 33% of Condor’s seats are on Eurowings routes and 19% are on Lufthansa routes. Condor’s strong leisure focus suggests that it would be incorporated into Lufthansa’s Eurowings division if a takeover is pursued, although it is still digesting parts of airberlin, and other hurdles could include competition concerns. [more – CAPA Analysis]
