Lufthansa already operates a daily flight from Bengaluru to Frankfurt.

George Ettiyil, senior director sales, south Asia of the Lufthansa Group Airlines said, “Bengaluru Airport connects India’s IT and tech hub, Bengaluru, but also many next tier cities from the rest of the south Indian region. South India has a growing number of discerning travellers, who travel frequently abroad and increasingly demand a more premium travel experience whether for business or leisure purposes.
