Air Berlin picked Lufthansa and easyJet as possible buyers
“Authority was granted to conclude one or more agreements with one or more of these bidders,” Air Berlin said in a statement late on Thursday.
Talks over its other Air Berlin assets, such as its aircraft maintenance unit, will continue with other bidders, it said.
Air Berlin, which has about 8,000 employees and operates 144 mostly leased planes, filed for insolvency in August after major shareholder Etihad pulled the plug on funding. ■
