Lufthansa supervisory board OKs sale of catering ops to Gategroup

BERLIN (Reuters) - Lufthansa's <LHAG.DE> supervisory board approved the sale of the European operations of its airline caterer LSG to Switzerland-based Gategroup, Lufthansa said in a statement on Tuesday.

The contract will be finalised and signed in the coming days, it added.

Germany's largest airlines said last month the sale was part of its new strategy to focus on its airline business.
