German term or phrase: Abbringerflug
In a bullet point in a contract issued by an airline.

"MCT (minimum connecting time) auf Abbringerflüge"

Also in the same contract "abbringende Airline".

It is clear from the context that this is the opposite of Zubringer (= feeder e.g. feeder airline, feeder service).

Does anyone know the correct airline-related term, please?

onward connecting flight/outbound connecting flight
Explanation:
Sorry, my original answer was a little confusing.

it is probably better to express it in terms of arrival and departure.

The definition depends on the airport where the passenger is:

For a Passenger at airport XY:

Zubringer = a flight arriving at airport XY to connect to another flight - handled by arrivals (often a feeder)
or
Abbringer = a flight departing from airport XY to connect to a flight at another airport or simply to another destination - handled by departures.

It's all about "Scheduled flight connectivity" and "delay management"

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  Edith Kelly: just connecting flight (see Steffen's comment).
1 hr
  -> Depends whether you are arriving or departing

agree  Lancashireman
12 hrs
  -> THX

agree  dkfmmuc: An agree to the "onward" connecting flight. Due to the fact that we don't know if the passenger is on the "return" segment of his ticket the term "outbound" doesn't sound fine IMHO.
1 day 1 hr
  -> Thanks, it certainly would be easier to say departing, but since when has simple been a good solution :-)

agree  Rebecca Garber
1 day 4 hrs
  -> Thanks Rebecca

neutral  jccantrell: With Steffan and Edith, a connecting flight by definition brings you away from where you are.
2 days 5 hrs
  -> It's administrative and about who handles it and how it's handled. A simple connecting flight can be from anywhere to anywhere, not necessarily the airport where you are. Think like an airport/airline operator, not an airline passenger.
