In the wake of strike by German pilots' union, Lufthansa has come out with a special schedule for its flights operating out of India and South East Asia.
"The airline has published a special flight schedule which will help customers to find out in time if their flight would be affected or not," the airlines said in a statement.
The special schedule would be applicable from February 22 to 25, during the period of strike called by pilots' union 'Vereinigung Cockpit'. List of all flights which would be operating during the period would be available at the airlines' website 'www.Lufthansa.Com'.
Additionally, Lufthansa Group Airlines -- Swiss International Airlines and Austrian Airlines -- as well as Star Alliance Partners would be offering seats to Indian Lufthansa customers, it said.
Over 800 fights of Lufthansa, the largest European airline group in Asia-Pacific, were likely to be affected worldwide due to the strike.
The airlines, however, said it was trying to maintain its daily flights to India but also made clear that it would not be able to operate its usual 53 weekly flight schedule for Indian customers due to the strike.
"Depending upon the actual operating conditions during the days of the strike, further changes could be made to this schedule," it said, adding passengers could get information about their flights from airlines' toll free number 1800 102 5838.
