The new integrated report of Flughafen München GmbH (FMG), entitled “What a difference,” is out now, with all relevant data, facts, and information on fiscal year 2019. An online version is available at bericht2019.munich-airport.de. The name says it all: Once again, the new report shows where Munich Airport is making a difference. The report focuses on three core challenges of the future: Requirement-oriented expansion of the infrastructure, solutions to demographic trends, and shaping of digital transformation.
This year's integrated report is the 10th edition – emphasizing Munich Airport's role as a pioneer of integrated reporting. As ever, the anniversary edition combines information on financial and non-financial performance with results of the airport group in a single publication. The economic issues and the social and environmental aspects of airport operations are dealt with equally here. For instance, issues like the environment, employees, and society are treated in exactly the same way as the content of a conventional annual report. “We are showing how our business activities impact on economic, environmental, and social matters, and what contribution we as a company are making here,” explained Jost Lammers, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Human Relations Officer of Flughafen München GmbH. “In doing so, we are promoting transparency and creating a basis for dialog.”
The success of this holistic publication speaks for itself: FMG has already won over two dozen prizes since publication of the first edition of the integrated report for 2010. These include the prestigious awards of the publisher ECON and the League of American Communications Professionals (LACP), as well as the BCM Award of the Content Marketing Forum.
Printed on recycled paper in line with the company's own standard, the hard-copy version of the report will be available from the end of July.
With the opening of Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) on October 31, 2020, AeroGround Berlin GmbH, a subsidiary of AeroGround Flughafen München GmbH, commenced ground handling services at the new location. By gaining the Lufthansa Group and Eurowings as new clients at the capital city airport, AeroGround has significantly expanded its market position. AeroGround Berlin has thus become the market leader in ground handling services at the Berlin airport following its relocation.
Munich Airport and Lufthansa signed a letter of intent (LoI) in December 2019 outlining their strategic cooperation in Munich. Against the backdrop of the dramatic impact of the corona pandemic, both sides have now reached an additional agreement that strongly reaffirms Munich Airport's long-term development as a hub for intercontinental traffic.
