Lufthansa is tightening up its Team Lufthansa group of regional affiliates, under the new brand Lufthansa Regional. Air Dolomiti, Augsburg Airways, Contact Air, Eurowings and Lufthansa CityLine will now be run by a single steering committee, including former Lufthansa Cargo chief of operations Werner Knorr and the chief executives of the five airlines, which will divide operations between the airlines - potentially leading to several carriers sharing the same route. All the airlines except Air Dolomiti will repaint their aircraft in Lufthansa Regional colours, and tickets will be sold through Lufthansa's sales department. Cirrus Air and Cimber Air, formerly members of Team Lufthansa, will not be involved in the partnership.
