New Delhi, Dec 9 (IANS) Full-service carrier Vistara on Monday entered into a codeshare agreement with Lufthansa.
In aviation parlance, a codeshare allows two airlines to sell seats on each others' flights to provide passengers with a wider choice of destinations.
Accordingly, Lufthansa will add its 'LH' designator code to nearly 18 Vistara-operated flights every day covering 10 Indian cities.
"Sales under the codeshare agreement progressively open today on all channels and major GDS systems for flights starting 16 December 2019," the airline said in a statement.
According to the statement, 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 earn miles or points when travelling on each other's networks and enjoy other benefits," the statement added.
Mumbai, Jan 27 (IANS) The key Indian equities declined on Wednesday morning with the BSE Sensex losing nearly 400 points, coming down from the 48,000-mark.
Heavy selling was witnessed in banking, finance and oil and gas stocks.
Around 10.25 a.m., Sensex was at 47,954.05, lower by 393.54 points or 0.81 per cent from its previous close of 48,347.59.
It opened at 48,385.28 and has so far recorded an intra-day high of 48,387.25 and a low of 47,939.97.
The Nifty50 on the National Stock Exchange was trading at 14,147.05, lower by 91.85 points or 0.65 per cent from its previous close.
Manish Hathiramani, technical analyst with Deen Dayal Investments said: "14,250 was a medium-term support for the index which was pierced on Monday. This makes the Nifty vulnerable and we can go down to 13,950 as a possible target."
"If we are unable to hold that level, we could fall further to 13,600. On the upside, the resistance is at 14,550-14,600 and until we do not close above that zone, we will continue to remain in the grip of the bears," he said.
