"The two airlines are planning to soon expand the scope of the agreement, enabling frequent fliers of both airlines to earn miles/points when travelling on each other's networks and enjoy other benefits," Vistara said in a release.

Codesharing allows an airline to book its passengers on its partner carriers and provide seamless travel to destinations where it has no presence.

An interline arrangement refers to a pact to issue and accept tickets for flights that are operated by the partner airline.

As part of the agreement, Lufthansa would add its 'LH' designator code to nearly 18 Vistara-operated flights every day covering 10 Indian cities, namely Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Goa, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Kochi, Mumbai and Pune.

"Sales under the codeshare agreement progressively open today on all channels and major GDS systems for flights starting 16 December 2019," the release said.
