A Lufthansa Airbus A319-100, registration D-AILT performing flight LH-58 from Frankfurt/Main to Hanover (Germany), was climbing out of Frankfurt shortly after takeoff when the captain noticed oil fumes in the cockpit. The first officer, pilot flying, donned his oxygen masks as a precaution. The odour of oil was subsequently also reported from the front of the cabin but seemed to subside enroute. During the descent the odour intensified again, both pilots now used their oxygen masks and continued for a safe landing in Hanover.

The German BFU reported in their monthly bulletin that all crew went for a medical check after landing as a precaution. An inspection of both engines identified no anomaly or source of smell. During a following ground run the odour reappeared after the APU had been activated. The BFU opened an investigation.
