27 October 2018
This weekend the winter timetable will come into effect from Sunday, October 28, 2018 until Saturday, March 30, 2019
This weekend the big day will be here again: As the clocks go back an hour, the winter timetable will come into effect at Munich Airport. The new schedule, which will remain in effect from Sunday, October 28, 2018 until Saturday, March 30, 2019, offers passengers 207 destinations in Germany and abroad. Alongside 17 airports in Germany, travelers in Munich can choose from among 139 European routes and 51 intercontinental destinations all over the world.
Bogotà with Avianca
On November 17, South America will be a little closer, when the Columbian airline Avianca launches a new connection from Bogotá to Munich. It is the carrier's first-ever non-stop service from the Columbian capital to a German destination, and will depart five times a week. Passengers flying to Bogotá will benefit from the wide range of connecting flights to attractive Latin American destinations offered by the Star Alliance member Avianca at its home hub.
Miami, San Francisco and Singapore with Lufthansa
Lufthansa is stepping up its service to Miami this winter from three departures a week to a daily flight. This service will now be operated with an Airbus 380: the world's largest passenger aircraft. With the start of the winter timetable, Lufthansa will operate its Munich to San Francisco service with the A380 for the first time. This will increase the available capacity on that route. The German carrier will also continue the new flights to Singapore that it launched in the summer.
Houston, Beijing, Bangkok with United, Air China and Thai Airways
In another first, the US airline United is continuing its daily connection to the Texan metropolis of Houston into the winter season this year. And with the addition of two new weekly flights to Beijing, Air China will fly from Munich for the Chinese capital seven days a week. In the coming winter season, Thai Airways International will make its daily flights to Bangkok with a modern Boeing 777 aircraft instead of the Boeing 747 as before. This means that there are no longer any "Jumbo jets" in operation at Munich Airport at present.
Edinburgh, Katowice, Moscow with Lufthansa
Lufthansa will depart for the Scottish capital, Edinburgh, twice a week this winter. Meanwhile, it will continue to operate the service to Katowice, Poland, launched in the summer months, and is adding a third daily flight to its service to Domodedovo Airport in Moscow.
Hamburg, Cologne, Split, Thessaloniki with Eurowings
The Lufthansa subsidiary Eurowings is offering 28 flights a week from Munich to Hamburg in the winter schedule, and will increase its services to Cologne to 38 weekly departures. The airline will also fly from Munich to Split in Croatia and Thessaloniki in Greece for the first time.
Alicante, Gran Canaria, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca, Tenerife and Oslo with Norvegian
Norwegian Air will triple the number of flights to the beach destinations of Alicante, Gran Canaria, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca and Tenerife to a total of 29 weekly departures. The low-cost carrier is also adding more flights to Oslo this winter, offering a daily service as compared to three flights a week as before.
New airline: BA CityFlyer
On February 16, 2019, Munich Airport will mark the debut of a new airline with the launch of 18 weekly departures to London City Airport by the British carrier BA CityFlyer.
