Lufthansa to launch Flights between Munich and Mumbai

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Thursday, 21 February 2008

Lufthansa is to expand its services to India. From 3 May 2008, Lufthansa will be the only airline to connect the south German hub of Munich with Mumbai (Bombay). The thrice-weekly flights from Munich, which will be operated with an Airbus A340-300, will supplement Lufthansas daily service from Frankfurt.

In addition, the current service from Frankfurt to Kolkata (Calcutta) in Northeast India will also be boosted from three to five flights a week, starting on 3 June by adding a flight on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

India is increasingly gaining in importance as a strategic growth market. That is why Lufthansa has steadily expanded its flight services to the country in recent years. In future, our customers will have a choice of 50 flights a week to six destinations in India. This will underpin our position as the European market leader, said Karl Ulrich Garnadt, Executive Vice President Services and Human Resources, Lufthansa Passenger Airlines.

With over 13 million residents, Mumbai is one of the most populous cities in the world. The metropolis is also Indias most important port and the commercial capital of the sub-continent. Mumbai is responsible for about 40 per cent of Indias foreign trade. The special introductory fare of 599 euros on the new route will bring Mumbai within easy reach.

The above-mentioned fare can be booked until 31 March 2008 for travel between 3 May and 30 June 2008, subject to availability. It applies to flights in Economy Class and includes all taxes, fees and the Lufthansa Ticket Service Charge of 15 euros for bookings made online at
