Munich Airport to serve 229 Destinations in 70 Countries with New Summer Timetable

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 27 March 2009

In the new summer timetable, which takes effect on Sunday 29 March 2009, a total of 229 destinations in 70 countries around the world will be served from Munich Airport, including 49 long-haul routes, 160 continental destinations and 20 connections within Germany.

For the new timetable, the airlines operating at Bavaria's international hub have booked slots for a total of 241,000 take-offs and landings. These figures show that the airlines have responded to the current economic crisis by reducing the number of flights offered.

 The most frequently served foreign destination is London, with a total of about 4,500 departures in the coming summer season. Among German destinations, Berlin is number one with more than 4,700 flights departing from Munich for Germany's capital, followed by Dsseldorf, with nearly 4,300 departures.

As of mid-May Lufthansa will be flying from Munich to New York (JFK) six times a week with its business jet. This brings the total number of weekly flights to New York offered by Lufthansa to 20. During the new timetable period Lufthansa will also be operating four weekly flights to the Israeli metropolis of Tel Aviv with an Airbus A340. Lufthansa is once again tightening its network of routes connecting Munich with European destinations, adding a new daily flight to Lviv (Lemberg) in western Ukraine and bolstering its services to Bilbao, Spain and Cluj, Romania, with a second daily flight to each of those cities. However, flights will no longer be offered to Yerevan, the capital of Armenia.

Aer Lingus is increasing its presence in Munich with the addition of two daily departures to London Gatwick. The English low-cost carrier EasyJet is also adding a daily flight to the British capital. With three new weekly flights, Air Malta is stepping up its services to Malta to 16 flights a week. However, Air France and Finnair are eliminating one daily flight to Lyon and Helsinki, respectively, and the Romanian airline Tarom is cutting three weekly departures to Bucharest.

With the start of the summer timetable, business and leisure travelers will be able to fly from Munich to Lebanon for the first time: every Saturday, Blue Wings will leave for Beirut. As of mid-June, holidaymakers can head for Simferopol in the Crimean vacation region of Ukraine with Ukraine International Airlines. Turkish Airlines is adding a third weekly flight to its Istanbul service this summer.

In the long-haul segment LTU is sharply cutting back its services from Munich, eliminating flights to Bangkok, Fort Myers, Capetown, Mauritius, Miami and Varadero. As of mid-May, Air Mauritius will no longer be flying to its island home of Mauritius, the vacationers' paradise off the south-west coast of Africa.
