Lufthansa’s Commitment to India
Lufthansa has a long history in India, dating back over 90 years. The company is committed to the Indian market and plans to operate 64 weekly flights between India and Europe by January 2024. This is an increase from pre-pandemic levels.
Economic Growth in India
Lufthansa’s decision to expand its India operations is based on the country’s strong economic growth. India is now the fifth-largest economy in the world and is projected to be the third-largest by 2030.
New APAC Destination
Bengaluru is Lufthansa’s first new destination in the Asia-Pacific region since the pandemic. The company sees the city as a strategic market and is excited to offer direct flights to its customers.
“It is an incredibly exciting time to be in India as the country is witnessing tremendous economic growth. It is now the 5th largest economy and is on track to be the 3rd largest economy by 2030. We have been invested in India for more than 90 years and when looking for our first new APAC destination since the pandemic, Bengaluru was a natural fit,” said George Ettiyil, Lufthansa Group Senior Director – South Asia.
