Published on : Friday, September 7, 2018

Lufthansa GroupLufthansa German Airlines, Europe’s leading airline in India and first European airline with 5-star Skytrax rating, completed 55 years of operations on Delhi – Frankfurt route on September 1, 2018.

 

 

In June 1963 there were three flights a week to the far east. On Mondays and Wednesdays the routing led from Duesseldorf via Frankfurt, Rome, Cairo, Dharan, Karachi, Calcutta, Bangkok and Hong Kong to Tokyo. On Fridays the route led from Duesseldorf via Frankfurt, Rome, Cairo, Kuweit, Karachi, Calcutta, Bangkok and Hong Kong to Tokyo. As of September of the same year, the stop in India took place in New Delhi instead of Calcutta. The flights were operated by a Boeing 720. Nowadays, Lufthansa operates the route by a A380 that covers the distance in a bit more than 7 ½ hours.

 

 

Delhi has always been a key market for Lufthansa and over the years the airline has experienced healthy growth on the route as more and more customers experience world-class product and services customized to Indian sensibilities. These include state-of-the-art products and best-in-class services such as in-flight entertainment and enhanced FlyNet allowing in-flight, high-speed internet to help stay connected with business partners or family on ground.

 

 

Lufthansa Group and its carriers Lufthansa, SWISS and Brussels Airlines currently offer 61 flights from four Indian gateways, namely Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Bengaluru connecting to 343 destinations in more than 100 countries via its four European hubs of Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich and Brussels.
