Air France-KLM said it will add capacity to India to minimise travel disruptions for passengers originally booked on the group's commercial partner Jet Airways (9W, Mumbai Int'l), which suspended operations on April 17.

"Depending on their operational capacities and needs, Air France and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines are increasing the number of seats available to and from India by operating higher capacity aircraft or increasing the number of frequencies," the Franco-Dutch holding said in a statement.

Air France-KLM added that it remains in close contact with Jet Airways and will assist all passengers who were due to travel on the Indian airline with Air France or KLM codeshares.

According to the ch-aviation capacity module, Jet Airways operated daily services from Mumbai Int'l and Chennai to Paris CDG. The French carrier operates daily flights from its main hub to Mumbai (flights are operated by Joon) and to Bangalore Int'l, as well as 5x weekly to Delhi Int'l.

Jet Airways also flew daily from Bangalore, Delhi, and Mumbai to Amsterdam Schiphol, while KLM operates daily to Delhi and 3x weekly to Mumbai.

All of these flights were covered by the codeshare partnership which also includes Delta Air Lines (DL, Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson).
