Usually, Indian Prime Ministers transit through Frankfurt for further journeys across the Atlantic.

Berlin was preferred to Frankfurt for a transit halt on Germany's request for a possible bilateral meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel but she flew to Brazil to watch the FIFA World Cup final between Germany and Argentina.
