Germany’s biggest airline Lufthansa will buy up more than half of the aircraft of its bankrupt competitor Air Berlin, chief executive Carsten Spohr said Thursday.

On a “great day” for the Frankfurt-based carrier, it will sign a contract to buy 81 of Air Berlin’s 144 planes and take on 3,000 of its 8,500 staff at noon (1000 GMT) Thursday, Spohr said — the last day for bidders Lufthansa and Easyjet to close their hoped-for deals.
