MUC Reshuffles T1, Grows 7%

Wed Jul 23, 2003 7:14 pm

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.

Keep up the good work, MUC  Big thumbs up

"...Terminal 1 welcomed its millionth passenger only three days after the opening of the facility..."

what? Am I to stupid to understand this or is there a mistake?

T1 handles 1 million Pax in 3 days ? It would be crazy and a new record in the world of aviation  Wink/being sarcastic

Has Lufthansa started the LAX-MUC service yet? I know it was proposed, then withdrawn, and now ????

I don't know about the LAX route... But: Miami and Dubai are finally confirmed for the winter timetable. Definitely good news.

Hard to believe though that three daily flights between Munich and Dubai can survive on the long run (two by Emirates, one by Lufthansa!).

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.

Glad to hear MUC-LAX is up and going! Hopefully it will remain popular enough to continue 7x/week.

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.
