Thunderstorm warning system at Munich Airport

Safety first – including during thunderstorms

Germany is hit by many hundreds of thousands of lightning strikes every year. The probability of an individual person being struck by lightning is extremely low. Nevertheless, cases of serious injury serve as a continued reminder of the risk posed by lightning during severe thunderstorms. 

Munich Airport uses weather observation, clear rules, and a new lightning warning system to ensure that passengers and employees are protected at all times.
