The new winter timetable at Munich Airport will
come into effect on Sunday, 30 October 2011.
For the period up to
24 March 2012, the airlines operating at Bavaria's international
hub have scheduled more than 150,000 flights, which matches the
previous year's level.
This winter, passengers using Munich
Airport for business or personal travel can choose from routes
operated by 100 different airlines, serving 206 destinations in
One highlight of the new winter timetable is the
first-ever scheduled service at Munich Airport with the world's
largest passenger aircraft now flying, the
Airbus A380. Starting on 25 November 2011, Emirates will be
flying the gigantic aircraft on its afternoon flight to Dubai.
Lufthansa will also be operating an Airbus A380 in the
pre-Christmas season on daily flights to New York at 11:45 a.m.
from 6 - 12 December 2011.
In the coming winter timetable Lufthansa will
add two flights a week on its long-haul routes to the Asian
metropolises of Hong Kong, Mumbai and Singapore and to Boston and
Sao Paulo. As a result, for the first time these destinations will
have daily services in the winter season as well. In addition,
Lufthansa will extend its Singapore service by flying on to the
Indonesian capital Jakarta.
With the addition of one weekly flight
there will now be six departures a week to Charlotte, North
Carolina, in the USA. Starting on 31 October, Lufthansa's flights
to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia will be extended to Jeddah, and be
operated with an Airbus A340, which is much larger than the
business jet previously used.
On European routes, Lufthansa will double its
service to the Romanian city of Cluj to two flights a day, and
will increase the number of daily departures to the Polish port
city of Gdańsk from two to three. The total number of seats
offered by Lufthansa this winter on flights departing from Munich
is up by 4% as compared with last year's winter season.
Traffic from Munich to Moscow continues to
expand, with Aeroflot, Russia's largest airline, adding five
weekly flights to bring the total to 21. The airline S7 is also
increasing its services to the Russian capital from seven to 10
departures per week. This winter SAS will resume daily flights to
the Norwegian capital Oslo.
