NEW DELHI, Sept. 19

AIR India is exploring code share arrangement with Air Canada on the Mumbai/Delhi to Frankfurt sector using the three new flights, which the national flag carrier plans to operate on this sector from December 8.

The Canadian Minister of Transport, Mr David M. Collenette, told the visiting Indian Civil Aviation Minister, Mr Syed Shahnawaz Hussain, in Ottawa that this was a positive development and the two airlines should discuss the issue within the framework of the bilateral air service agreement, an official statement said here on Thursday.

The two Ministers discussed possible areas of cooperation between the two countries, which encompassed a MoU signed between Pawan Hans Helicopters Ltd and CHC Helicopter International Incorporated (CHII) on helicopter safety and operation.

The Indian programme for restructuring of major airports to upgrade them to highest international standards with private sector investment and management and the Canadian experience of private sector involvement in infrastructure development were also discussed during the meeting.
