Lufthansa cancels all India flights over flight schedule discord
Lufthansa claims it had applied for the continuation of special flights it was granted to operate until the end of September but India did not accept. The DGCA said, "As against Indian carriers operating 3-4 flights a week, Lufthansa operated 20 flights...we offered to clear 7 which was not accepted by them."

NEW DELHI, Sept 30: The German carrier Lufthansa has cancelled all the planned flights between Germany and India from September 30 till October 20, citing “unexpected rejection” of its flight schedule by the Indian Government.

"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 on Tuesday.

“Due to the Indian government’s rejection, Lufthansa will now have to cancel all planned flights between Germany and India between 30 September and 20 October," it added.

India is in talks with several countries to enter into air bubble agreement. It already has such an agreement with 13 countries - US, UK, UAE, Maldives, France, Germany, Canada, Qatar, Bahrain, Nigeria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Japan. Air bubble agreements allow desigated airlines to fly between the two countries.

India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said, "As against Indian carriers operating 3-4 flights a week, Lufthansa operated 20 flights a week. In spite of this disparity, we offered to clear 7 flights a week for Lufthansa which was not accepted by them. Negotiations continue."

The DGCA said India formalised an air bubble with Germany in July this year.

Scheduled international passenger flights have been suspended in India since March 23 due to the coronavirus lockdown. However, special flights have been permitted under "air bubble" arrangements.
