Lufthansa and Eurowings announce major additions to services in Munich
March 22, 2018
The new Munich Airport summer timetable will start this coming Sunday, on March 25th: 91 airlines have booked slots for over 250,000 scheduled flights to 246 destinations in 68 countries. In addition to 17 German airports and 179 medium-range routes, scheduled services will be available to 50 intercontinental destinations. The summer period will continue through to Saturday, October 27, 2018.
This summer, passengers in Munich will benefit from additions by Lufthansa and its subsidiary, Eurowings, to the range of destinations served. The decision by Lufthansa to station five A380 jets – currently the world’s largest passenger plane – at its Munich hub represents a substantial increase in capacity. From the start of the new summer timetable, Lufthansa will offer daily departures with the giant Airbus to the Asian cities of Hong Kong and Beijing and to Los Angeles. Lufthansa is resuming services to Singapore, departing five times a week with modern Airbus A350 aircraft. It is also adding three new weekly flights to Chicago, bringing the total to 10. There will no longer be services to Riyadh and Tehran, however. Along with the new intercontinental services, Lufthansa is making major additions to its European and domestic routes this summer, offering 219 more weekly departures from Munich than in the summer of 2017.
