Dear Mr. Ewbank,

I am the head of the Access to Documents service in the Directorate-General for Trade (DG TRADE) in the European Commission.

I refer to your e-mail of 17 May 2024 titled "Internal review of access to documents request - Meetings and Correspondence between Trade and Lufthansa Group". Please accept our sincere apology for a delay in handling your request and the lack of initial response from DG TRADE Access to Documents team. Due to a technical error beyond our control, your initial request of 29 August 2023 submitted through the external website www.asktheeu.org has never been registered in the European Commission Registry. As a result, we did not acknowledge the receipt of your initial request for access to documents of 29 August 2023.

Having verified the content of your request (namely: "All documentation, including, but not limited to, attendance lists, agendas, background papers, minutes/notes and email correspondence about or summarising the following meetings between Valdis Dombrovskis and Lufthansa." / "Lufthansa Group and Executive VP Valdis Dombrovskis on 28/03/2023 on 'Aviation, green transition, level playing field, competitiveness, connectivity.”), I can inform you that no Trade-related topic was discussed at the above-mentioned meeting.

Therefore, I kindly suggest that you resubmit your request to the Commission's Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport dealing directly with Commission's policy on transport. Please note that you can also submit a request for a Commission document directly via our website:
https://ec.europa.eu/transparency/docume... without involving a third-party entities.

I trust that this reply will be helpful.
Kind regards
Maud Labat
