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 68 countries.

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.
