The number of flights on offer from Munich Airport will be increased over the next few weeks. In the past few months, international air travel in particular had come to a virtual standstill on account of the numerous travel restrictions. Now, many airlines are starting to ramp up their operations again, starting June.

Lufthansa will be flying regularly from Munich to Brussels, Milan, Rome, Vienna, and Zurich again within the next few days. On Tuesday, June 2, the airline reopened its route from Munich to Chicago. The first flight to Los Angeles is scheduled to take place on Wednesday. Initially, service to both US destinations is to be provided three days a week. Lufthansa is also expected to conduct three weekly flights from Munich to Tel Aviv as of June 3.

Lufthansa will begin flying from Munich to a large number of additional destinations starting in mid-June. Besides the long-haul destinations of San Francisco, Montreal, Delhi, and Seoul, it plans to fly to 30 more European cities once again on a regular schedule.

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

Qatar Airways, which has maintained its operations in Munich over the past several weeks, will continue flying to Doha four times per week.

Until further notice, all arrivals and departures at Munich Airport will continue to be operated via Terminal 2. The check-in process and floor markings have been designed in close consultation with the competent health authorities to meet the special requirements for providing increased protection against infection. The wearing of masks continues to be mandatory in all terminals of Munich Airport.
