Air France Is Now The Only Continental European Airline Flying To India

Air France is maintaining flights to India as Lufthansa temporarily pulls the plug on its services to the subcontinent. With a travel bubble in place between India and France, Air France continues to fly to the Indian cities of Bengaluru, Delhi, and Mumbai. This comes after the Indian Government accused European airlines of abusing the terms and conditions of the travel bubble between India and European countries.

“Air France is operating flights between India and France under the “bilateral air bubble agreement,” the airline says on its website.

India has now established travel bubbles to 16 countries. They include Afghanistan, Bahrain, Canada, France, Germany, Iraq, Japan, the Maldives, Nigeria, Qatar, the UAE, Kenya, Bhutan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Air France has flown to India for decades. Typically, it runs daily flights from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to its three Indian destinations. In addition, sibling airline, KLM normally operates ten flights a week from Amsterdam-Schiphol to Delhi or Mumbai.

In a good year, Air France will carry approximately 700,000 passengers between India and Europe. Almost half of that number transit in Paris, going to or from North America.
