Lufthansa Cancels India-Germany Flights From Sept 30 After Row With Centre

After Indian authorities rejected Lufthansa’s planned flight schedule for October, the airline major on Tuesday said it will cancel all its planned flights between Germany and India from September 30 to October 20. 

“Lufthansa had applied for the continuation of special flights it was granted to operate until the end of September. This application process is necessary since India has, so far, not accepted the invitation by the German government to discuss details regarding a temporary travel agreement between both countries,” the airline said in a statement.

In the statement, the airline said it had originally scheduled flights for October in order to continue connecting Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru with Europe and other regions in Lufthansa’s worldwide network. 

“The October schedule would also have seen the addition of flights to and from Chennai, one of the most important cities in southern India,” it said.

However, the airline urged India to work together with the German government in order to establish a temporary travel agreement between both countries.
