Sales under the codeshare agreement progressively open today on all channels and major GDS systems for flights starting December 16, 2019.
Commenting on this partnership, Vinod Kannan, Vistara’s Chief Strategy Officer, says: “As a growing global carrier, one of our key goals is to offer an extended international network to our customers through such strategic associations. This also lets inbound travellers experience Vistara. Our codeshare with Lufthansa is another important step in this direction and helps us widen our customer base outside of India. We are delighted to strengthen our partnership with Lufthansa, an airline we share many things in common with and bring to our customers a delightful, world-class flying experience”.
