Analysis: “Judgment of the General Court, Ryanair v Commission (Condor)” by Fernando Pastor-Merchante

The judgment of the General Court in the Ryanair v Commission (Condor) (T-665/20) case offers some interesting insights on the interplay between the rules that govern two types of State aid: State aid granted to make good the damage caused by exceptional occurrences such as the COVID-19 outbreak (Article 107(2)(b) TFEU), and rescue and restructuring aid in favour of firms in difficulty (Article 107(3)(c) TFEU).

The case has its origins in the decision of the German Federal Government to grant two state-guaranteed loans with subsidised interest rates to Condor. The objective of the loan was to make up for the losses incurred by this airline as a result of the sharp drop in air passenger travel brought about by the COVID-19 outbreak
