The troubled Lufthansa brand Germanwings will cease to exist from this autumn. The budget division of the LH Group, both short haul and long haul, will take on the established Eurowings name.
Prosecutors believe co-pilot Andreas Lubitz deliberately steered the plane into a mountain, killing all 149 people on board, after hiding psychological problems from his employer.
Lufthansa will propose the spot checks to a task force set up by Germany's airline industry in the wake of the crash.
