Recently, it is announced that Vistara and Lufthansa signed a pact of codeshare to provide benefits to the fliers of both airlines. According to the partnership, they will allow frequent fliers from both airlines to earn points/miles when they travel on each other’s networks.
According to the agreement, Lufthansa will add its designator code ‘LH’ to almost 18 flights by Vistara. It will begin from December 16, 2019, and it will cover ten cities of India, which are Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Pune, Kochi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Goa.
The Chief Strategy Officer at Vistara, Vinod Kannan, said that they aim to provide an international network to their customers by strategic associations. Their codeshare agreement with Lufthansa is an essential step to spread the customer base outside India. The aims of Vistara are due to the rapid growth in the global carrier.
As per the agreement, the passengers are allowed to connect from Vistara domestic flights in India to Lufthansa’s Frankfurt and Munich flights. Customers will get their boarding passes at the first departure point for all the local and international traveling sectors after checking their baggage to the final destination. This agreement is a step forward to the growth of the Vistara airline.
