German airline group Lufthansa on Saturday said it had accepted a rescue plan offered by the German government and negotiated by the European Commission.

The package will see the German government pour 9 billion euros ($9.8bn) into the company, which has suffered economically due to restrictions imposed to contain the Covid-19 pandemic. The government will take a 20 percent stake in Lufthansa. EFE-EPA
