Munich Airport has begun a major reshuffling of the airlines in Terminal 1.
Beginning tomorrow, dba, Air Berlin, EAE and Germaia Express all move to Concourse A, which will be turned into a Holiday / Lowcost terminal in the coming years (whatever that means). Delta Air Lines moves to Concourse B which is currently empty (except for a handful of flights)
Beginning 3rd of August, British Airways and Air Lingus move thier operations into concourse B as well, which will subsequently be reconverted to its original destiny: A non-Schengen Terminal. Also bmiBaby moves to B, but that airline is supposed to cease operations in MUC in October.
On Monday, Terminal 1 welcomed its millionth passenger only three days after the opening of the facility.
In the first six months of 2003, MUC handled 7% more passengers than in the same timeframe last year, and reports the highest growth rates of the Top 10 European Airports, only MAD and LGW managed to report a growth at all. Operations grew by 6%, Cargo only by 2,2% mainly because the routes carrying most of the cargo (Asia) are mostly suspended.
For the coming winter schedule around 6% more flights have been annouced by the airlines flying to MUC, thus MUC estimates about 24,5 million passengers this year, and around 350,000 takeoffs and landings.

Hmmm..in the winter timetable of "WW" is no Munich mentioned...on the other hand BMI avoids to mention the word Germany in their press releases..and a third fact: they reducued their flights this month to Nottingham (but I'm not sure iof it was N.) from 7 to 4 flights a week.
MUC - LAX: now 7 flights a week with LH.
BTW: They will restart their flights to PVG (3x a week) in sep.

Any chance we will see MIA-MUC year-round, albeit with reduced frequency? Lauda/Austrian did it year-round and it always filled up. Maybe Lufthansa will be waiting to see the performance of the flight this winter and then study the prospect.
