General Court of the European Union: Judgment in Case T-677/20 Ryanair and Laudamotion v Commission (Austrian Airlines – Covid-19)

Luxembourg, 14 July 2021

The General Court confirms that the aid granted by Austria to Austrian Airlines in order to compensate it for the damage resulting from the cancellation or rescheduling of its flights due to the COVID-19 pandemic is compatible with the internal market

That aid, having been deducted from the subsidies granted, in the same context, by Germany to the Lufthansa group, which also includes Austrian Airlines, does not constitute overcompensation in favour of that group
