The company said that this is in line with its "focus, city-based strategy" in Germany. However it cautioned that, given the uncertainties associated with Air Berlin, there is no certainty at this stage any transaction will proceed.

It will provide a further update "if and when appropriate".

Air Berlin filed for insolvency in August after its main shareholder, Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways, withdrew financial aid for the loss-making carrier.
