FlixBus India Launch: Celebrated by Officials
Surya Khurana, Managing Director of FlixBus India, expressed excitement, stating,
“We’re introducing our services in India, offering safety, comfort, and cost-effective journeys. Our success hinges on collaboration with local operators, focusing on growth and efficiency while championing shared mobility to reduce congestion and emissions.”
Dr. Philipp Ackermann, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to India & Bhutan, hailed FlixBus’s entry into India as a remarkable opportunity for both nations.
“Both governments cooperate under the umbrella of a Green and Sustainable Development Partnership to modernize the Indian energy sector and to help reduce CO2 emissions in many other sectors, including transportation. Having a private company providing sustainable transportation as a business model and having the reduction of CO2 emissions as part of the company’s DNA is very encouraging. Strengthening collective travel in order to reduce emissions of the transport sector is a global undertaking that requires significant efforts from both the German and Indian Governments, our societies and industries. Making bus travel more convenient and accessible is an important lever to increase the attractiveness of collective transport,”
