    CAPA – Centre for Aviation, in a report entitled: ‘As it dies, airberlin sells NIKI, LGW, other aircraft to Lufthansa / Eurowings. easyJet talks continue’, stated (24-Oct-2017) even if competition concerns result in regulatory intervention in the Lufthansa Group‘s purchase of airberlin assets, Eurowings will strengthen its position in Germany and consolidate its position as Europe‘s number three low cost/point-to-point operator. If an agreement is reached and approved with easyJet, easyJet could jump from the number six to the number four airline in Germany and would very likely enter the domestic market. [more – CAPA Analysis]
