In December, EU regulators approved Lufthansa to purchase a large portion of bankrupt competitor Air Berlin. They received prized landing spots at large German airports and also purchased 33 leased planes. With other rival airlines cutting back, the Lufthansa Group is looking to expand. It has sights set on becoming a top global player. Spohr said, “There will be further consolidation in the coming years.” He believes the trend presents an opportunity for the company.
