More flights to fly from India to France
NEW DELHI: After virtually opening up the skies with the UK and the USA, India has signed an agreement with France to substantially raise the number of flights between them from 14 to 35 each week.
The French government has also allowed the 'Fifth Freedom' traffic rights to Indian carriers, allowing them to operate to places beyond France.
This would now enable Indian carriers to operate to New York and four more points in the US as also to Toronto and Montreal in Canada after a stopover in France.
India, on its part, designated Bangalore and Hyderabad as additional points of call for French airlines, besides Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai.
The French government also agreed to assist Air India to get additional landing slots and terminals at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris.
here you go. We will now see more of Indian carriers at CDG, and with fifth freedom they'll be able to hop over the pond.
