Lufthansa is set to sign a deal to buy parts of Air Berlin.

Air Berlin, which is Germany’s second-largest carrier filed for bankruptcy in August after its main shareholder, Etihad, said it would not give further financial support. It reported a record loss of €782m (£713m) for last year.

Flights continued after a transitional loan of €150m from the German government.

It has since been negotiating with potential buyers for parts of its business and said last month that negotiations with Lufthansa and EasyJet would continue until Friday.
