An apparent ‘bureaucratic’ hiccup by the India’s Government that had prevented the A380 from operating between Frankfurt and Delhi has finally been resolved. Originally LH was set to begin flying the A380 on a daily basis beginning with their Winter Timetable but a delay in the approval of LH’s timetable application grounded the A380’s introduction to India.
Now that the issue has been resolved and the timetable finally approved, Lufthansa will at last be able to introduce the A380 to India beginning on November 7. Flight number LH760 will operate from Frankfurt to Delhi and flight LH761 will operate from Delhi to Frankfurt.
According to LH, it took a team effort including the German Embassy in Delhi, German Transport Ministry and the Foreign Ministry to finally get the Indian Government to approve the application.
