India's aviation authority is not very cooperative and rejects the flight plan of the crane airline announced for October "unexpectedly".
From the point of view of the Indian authorities, there would be "massive competitive disadvantages" due to the excessively strict entry requirements for Indian citizens. While the AUA mother can fly to the Indian airports up to 20 times a week due to simpler regulations, the other side has to be satisfied with around three to four flights. This unequal treatment means that all flights up to and including October 20th have to be removed from the program. Affected passengers had already been informed this morning how aero.de reported.
Germany and India have allowed reciprocal air traffic again since June. The line to Chennai was supposed to be resumed in October.
