S K Modi-promoted ModiLuft has agreed to return the four Boeing 737-200 aircraft it took on lease from Airlines. This follows a negotiated settlement hammered out between Modi and senior vice-president Dieter Heinen in London recently.

However, clarified that the settlement does not amount to a revival of its agreement with the S K Modi group. enjoys normal airline industry relationships with many airlines around the world, including Indian Airlines and Jet Airways in India. If and when Mr Modi relaunches his airline, will have nothing to do with it. We have no information at this point in time who Mr Modis new partners will be, Lufthansas director, corporate communications (Asia Pacific) Kavin Sethi told Business Standard,

A joint release by the two companies yesterday stated, A comprehensive settlement plan that resolves all outstanding issues that have been the subject of litigation between the two organisations has been agreed to. The terms of consent resulting from the negotiated settlement between the two air carriers were filed in and accepted by the Supreme Court on August 14, added the release.

ModiLuft is poised for an early re-launch and will, once again, participate in a normal airline industry relationship with in future.

The two companies had parted ways after the Indian partner accused of not abiding by its funding commitment. In turn, the German airline alleged that ModiLuft had defaulted on lease payments for the four aircraft. The German airline had tied up with the S K Modi group in 1994.

even deputed three senior executives to ModiLuft as senior vice-presidents to handle the day-to-day affairs of the Indian airline. However, the relationship soured in mid-1996 after Modi began putting pressure on to take a stake of up to 40 per cent in the Indian carrier.
