Air France-KLM has signed a codeshare agreement with Indian low-cost carrier Indigo Airlines.
The codeshare, which is subject to government approval, is set to start in February 2022 and would allow Air France-KLM to offer its customers access to 25 new Indian destinations.
In a statement, the carriers said:
“On departure from the Indian provinces, Air France and KLM will open up their global network of over 250 destinations to Indigo customers, with more than 120 destinations in Europe and about 50 in the Americas.”
Air France currently operates flights to the Indian cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Bengaluru from Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport, while KLM serves Delhi and Mumbai from Amsterdam.
Indigo Airlines also has codeshare agreements with Turkish Airlines, Qatar Airways and American Airlines. Meanwhile, Air France-KLM recently signed a codeshare agreement with Skyteam alliance member ITA Airways, opening up 12 destinations in Italy and southern Europe to its passengers.
There are currently limited passenger services between India and 32 countries, with France and the Netherlands operating ‘air bubble’ arrangements with the country.
