– Lufthansa is finally coming out of the closet ans is now INTERESTED in buying Air Berlin

Lufthansa has confirmed an interest in taking over airberlin; however, the German carrier will look to Abu Dhabi’s state-owned carrier Etihad Airways to take care of airberlin’s debts.

Etihad owns a 29.2% stake in oneworld member airberlin, which has debts of €1.2 billion ($1.3 billion).

“The debt problem can only be resolved by the government of Abu Dhabi,” a Lufthansa spokesperson in Frankfurt told ATW.

In January, Lufthansa Group chairman and CEO Carsten Spohr had told ATW that airberlin’s debts were “much too high to attract an investor.”
