The General Court annuls the Commission decision approving the State aid granted by Germany to the airline Condor Flugdienst on the ground of an inadequate statement of reasons

However, because of the economic and social context marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, it
suspends the effects of the annulment pending the adoption of a new decision by the Commission.

In April 2020, Germany notified the Commission of individual aid in favour of the airline Condor
Flugdienst GmbH (‘Condor’), in the form of two loans in the amount of € 550 million, guaranteed by
the State with subsidised interest. The purpose of that measure was to compensate Condor for the
damage directly suffered as a result of the cancellation or rescheduling of its flights following the
imposition of travel restrictions as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
