It also added, “The two airlines already have an interline agreement, using which passengers are able to connect from Vistara-operated domestic flights in India to Lufthansa-operated flights to both its hubs in Frankfurt and Munich and beyond.”

“The two airlines are planning to soon expand the scope of the agreement, enabling frequent fliers of both airlines to earn miles or points when travelling on each other’s networks and enjoy other benefits,” the statement added further.
