German carrier Lufthansa on Monday announced the commencement of its flight services to Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru from Frankfurt from August 13, under a “bilateral agreement” between the governments. The company will also run flight services on the Munich-Delhi route.
The European carrier is already operating flights out of India to its two hubs–Frankfurt and Munich–for the past several months, according to a release. “Following a bilateral agreement between India and Germany, inbound passenger flights to India will be reinstated from August 13,” Lufthansa said in the release.
With the operations of flights from Germany into India, Lufthansa will be able to help people return to India and enable business travel as the world gradually begins to open up, said George Ettiyil, Lufthansa Group’s senior director for South Asia sales.
