Lufthansa has announced that as soon as demand is high enough they will be resuming their flights to Kolkata and Hyderbad. They also plan of flying to more destinations in India, now that they have made it the launchpad for their Boeing 747-8 aircraft. The airline currently services five destinations in India, including Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai, and Pune, but they dropped their Kolkata and Hyderbad service due to low yield.
Axel Hilgers, Lufthansa's Director South Asia, says that India is very important to them because they provide service to Germans and other European travellers. India is one of the biggest intercontinental markets on a global basis and they were the first market in Asia to receive the airline's new Business Class product and the Boeing 747-8 aircraft, which made its debut in India when it touched down in Delhi on Tuesday.
