Five new long-haul routes served from Munich Airport

Munich Airport‘s new summer timetable features flights to a total of 213 destinations in 68 countries around the world, including 44 long-haul routes, 149 continental destinations and 20 connections within Germany. For the new timetable period – from March 28 to October 30 – the airlines operating at Bavaria’s international hub have booked slots for a total of 247,000 take-offs and landings.

Five exciting new long-haul destinations will be launched this summer. With this development, the Star Alliance partner airlines in particular are underscoring the excellence of Munich Airport and its importance for Bavaria’s economic competitiveness. Lufthansa, a Star Alliance partner and the largest airline at Munich Airport, will be operating three weekly flights to both Miami and Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, in this year’s summer period.

A major debut at Munich Airport is the arrival of Singapore Airlines. This renowned carrier will be serving the route Manchester-Munich-Singapore five times a week with a Boeing 777. From its home airport the airline has a tightly-woven network of connecting flights to destinations in the Asian-Pacific region. This new service doubles the capacity available to take business travelers and tourists to Singapore. Along with Lufthansa’s flights, there will now be 10 weekly departures from Munich to Singapore.

All Nippon Airways will also be flying a Boeing 777 on its daily flights to Tokyo. Continental Airlines will be departing every day from Munich to Newark, near New York, with a Boeing 767. Lufthansa will continue to serve both of these destinations as well. According to current scheduling, the number of intercontinental flights will increase by about 7 percent to approximately 260 connections per week.
Lufthansa is introducing adding some new European destinations as well this summer, for example with seven weekly flights to Bari in Southern Italy, one flight to Faro, Portugal, seven flights to Tallinn, Estonia and two flights to Rostock, Germany. Lufthansa will also be offering more frequent services to Dubrovnik and Split in Croatia and Larnaca in Cyprus during the summer timetable period. Norwegian will depart three times a week to the Swedish capital, Stockholm.

Munich Airport will be welcoming another new airline this summer: Kuban Airlines will be flying twice a week from July until early September to Sochi on the Black Sea. Royal Air Maroc will serve the route Munich-Marakesh twice a week until mid-June and then again as of mid-September. Air Lingus will stop operating its flights to London-Gatwick and Belfast this summer, however.

The foreign destination served most frequently from Munich Airport is London, with a total of about 4,100 departures in the coming summer season. Among German destinations, Berlin is number one with more than 4,700 flights, followed by Dusseldorf, with nearly 4,400 departures.
