Almost 100 Belgian companies urge Lufthansa to keep Brussels Airlines separate from Eurowings

5 February, 2018

Akkanto, an organisational reputation and relations consultancy based in Belgium submitted (05-Feb-2018) an open letter to Deutsche Lufthansa AG, signed by almost 100 Belgian companies, urging Brussels Airlines to remain "a strong company anchored in Brussels". The open letter opposes integration of Brussels Airlines with Eurowings. Deutsche Lufthansa AG responded: "There is no difference in content between the demands of the Belgian economy and Eurowings' plans to build a strong, sustainable and leading pan-European airline, together with Brussels Airlines" (Reuters, 06-Feb-2018). [more - original PR - French]
