The number of flights on offer from Munich Airport is set to increase over the coming weeks. International air travel had come to a virtual standstill on account of the numerous travel restrictions as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. However, many airlines are now gradually starting to ramp up their operations from the German hub.

Lufthansa is due to resume regular services from Munich to Brussels, Milan, Rome, Vienna and Zurich over the coming days. Two US cities are also on the list of Lufthansa’s nonstop destinations. On Tuesday 2 June the airline reopened its route from Munich to Chicago while the first flight to Los Angeles took place on 3 June. Initially services to both US cities will be provided three days a week. Lufthansa also reopened three times weekly flights from Munich to Tel Aviv on 3 June.

Lufthansa subsidiary Eurowings has already been serving its route from Munich to Palma de Mallorca again and will also be offering flights to Pristina again from 6 June.

Having maintained its operations from Munich over the past several weeks, Qatar Airways will continue flying to Doha four times per week. Greece’s Aegean Airlines has re-established its connection from Munich to Athens and is initially offering three weekly flights. Luxair is again providing services between Munich and Luxembourg five times a week, while airBaltic has resumed services to Riga four times a week. The schedule of existing connections operated by Alitalia to Rome, KLM to Amsterdam, Air France to Paris, Finnair to Helsinki and Belavia to Minsk will be partially expanded to provide greater frequency.

From mid-June Lufthansa is due to start flying to additional destinations including 30 additional European cities on a regular schedule.

For the time being all arrivals and departures at Munich will continue to be operated via Terminal 2. The wearing of masks continues to be mandatory in all terminals, while flooor markings have been designed in close consultation with the competent health authorities.
