Airlines are gradually increasing the number of flights offered at Munich Airport, which had been reduced as a result of the Covis-19 crisis. The number of destinations served regularly from Munich has now risen to over 170. This represents around 80 percent of the destinations that were on the flight schedule in 2019, the year before the crisis.
Since this week, travelers from the Bavarian capital can now fly nonstop to Toronto again with Air Canada. As Germans are now also allowed to enter Canada again, the demand has increased accordingly. In addition to Air Canada's three weekly flights to Toronto, passengers can also travel to Canada on Lufthansa's five weekly flights from Munich to Vancouver.
Since January 2021, Singapore Airlines has been serving the Bavarian capital again. Now the airline increases the number of its flights from Munich to Singapore from three to five weekly frequencies. These two additional VTL (vaccinated travel lane) frequencies allow German fully vaccinated passengers to enter Singapore without quarantine, provided they have been within Germany for the last 21 days prior to departure and hold a negative PCR test. Travelers must also undergo a PCR test both on arrival and after three days in Singapore.
From October 1, Lufthansa will be flying to Dubai three times a week using the modern Airbus A350 long-haul aircraft. Likewise in October, Emirates will increase its service on the same route from seven to nine weekly flights.
As from next week, Lufthansa is boosting its flight offerings within Europe significantly: The "crane airline" will be operating around 100 more flights per week to a total of 20 European destinations. Among others, the major cities of Amsterdam, Budapest, Copenhagen, Milan, Paris, Rome, Stockholm and Vienna will be served more frequently. In addition, connections to Birmingham, Basel, Leipzig, Luxembourg, Paderborn and Stuttgart will be resumed.
EasyJet is also contributing to the expansion of the European route network from Munich. The British carrier is now flying again to London-Gatwick (four times a week) and Milan-Malpensa (three times a week). In addition, the airline plans to resume further connections to the United Kingdom in the coming months.
Arrivals and departures are meanwhile being handled again via both terminals at Munich Airport. Masks are still required in the check-in buildings at Munich Airport. Important information for travelers is available at the following link: Travelling in times of Covid-19
In May 2015, Munich Airport was awarded 5-Star status for the first time following an extensive review by the London-based Skytrax Institute. Germany's second-largest airport was also the first European airport to be awarded this highest seal of quality. In a first re-certification, Munich Airport successfully maintained its 5-Star status in March 2017. Now the auditors from London have again subjected the Bavarian aviation hub to a detailed evaluation. The auditors' conclusion: Munich Airport has not only maintained its high quality of service and hospitality, but has even further extended it
Munich Airport can again enjoy the title of "Europe's Best Airport" in 2018. The Bavarian hub was selected for the honor in the annual World Airport Awards announced by the respected London-based aviation research institute Skytrax. The announcement was made in a special ceremony on the occasion of the international airport fair "Passenger Terminal EXPO 2018" in Stockholm.
Europe's best airport, the best terminal in the world – and now yet another accolade for Munich Airport: In a new audit carried out by the London-based Skytrax Institute, Bavaria's gateway to the world has successfully defended its title as Europe's first and only five-star airport. In May 2015 the Bavarian hub was granted the five-star airport title for the first time. Before that, the only airports to earn the top rating of five stars were in Asia: Singapore, Seoul, Hong Kong and Tokio-Haneda. They were joined in January 2017 by Doha Airport. Munich has now successfully defended its title: Experts from the Skytrax Institute returned to scrutinize the quality of the services and the overall passenger experience and once again awarded Munich Airport the five-star seal of approval. The auditors' conclusion: Munich Airport not only maintained its outstanding quality, but actually improved on it.
Another big win for Munich Airport: The Bavarian hub has yet again been ranked number one among Europe's top airports in 2017. For the tenth time in the past 12 years, Munich Airport has been honored with the title of "Best Airport in Europe" in the World Airport Awards announced annually by Skytrax, a renowned aviation research firm based in London.
Munich Airport is yet again basking in the glow of a prestigious award after being voted Europe's Best Airport once more in 2016. The Bavarian hub's renewed success as the top European candidate in the World Airport Awards was announced by the respected London-based aviation research institute Skytrax. This marked the ninth time in 11 years that Munich has earned the number one ranking. Munich Airport also came out on top in the regional competition, beating out all rivals for the title "Best Airport in Central Europe".
