With Jet Airways shutting down in April, the Lufthansa group is planning to “strengthen” its partnership with Indian airlines like Vistara and Air India in 2020, the top Indian official of the largest European carrier said.

Currently, Lufthansa has an interline agreement with Vistara,  which allows a passenger to check-in luggage at the first airport itself for entire journey consisting of flights of both airlines.

“With Vistara... we are strengthening our relationship. Jet Airways was one of our partners in India and with them having left the scene, we are looking for Indian airlines to partner up with,” Ettiyil said.

Asked if Lufthansa was planning to convert its interline pact with Vistara to a codeshare agreement, he said, “We are trying to strengthen it.” The airline has a codeshare agreement with Air India, which allows one airline’s passenger to book a ticket on the other airline, using the first one’s ticketing system. — PTI
