The European Commission has approved a €460 million stabilisation
package for Brussels Airlines. The carrier said the package, of which €290
million comes from the Belgian federal government and €170 million from parent
company Lufthansa, "covers in part the losses incurred by Brussels
Airlines due to the crisis and secures at the same time tens of thousands of
direct and indirect jobs that are linked to the activities of Brussels Airlines".
The German Economic Stabilisation Fund also approved the package last week.
