Why Lufthansa Has Cancelled Flights To India
All flights between September 30 and October 20 stand cancelled.
Lufthansa, the German airliner that is one of the largest operators in the world, has cancelled all flights to India between September 30 and October 20. The reason for the same is being said to be a dispute between the airliner and the Indian Government over the number of flights it is currently allowed to operate. Flying operations between Germany and India are happening in a limited manner seeing the ongoing COVID-19 crisis that has affected the whole world.
The DGCA (Director General of Civil Aviation) has said that the number of weekly flights being operated by Lufthansa currently is 20. The Indian Government, however, has proposed that the number be brought down to seven per week, which the airline has rejected. Lufthansa’s statement reads, “Due to the Indian government’s rejection of Lufthansa’s flight schedule for October, Lufthansa will now have to cancel all planned flights between Germany and India between 30 September and 20 October, unfortunately.”
