It remains clear that air travel into Asia from Munich Airport is a hot market right now, as the German airfield reports that levels have surpassed pre-pandemic levels.
Starting on March 31, 2024, a total of nine airlines will provide 107 weekly flights to 14 destinations across the continent.
For context, there was 101 weekly in 2019, showing the levels being surpassed. Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Asia Is Now A Hot Market for Munich Airport…
“The destinations now covered by flights from Munich to East and South Asia are Tokyo, Osaka, Beijing, Shanghai, Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, Seoul, Tashkent, Dushanbe, Male, Taipei, Bangkok and Singapore.”
“These destinations in East and South Asia are currently served by Lufthansa, Air China, All Nippon Airways, BeOnd, EVA Airways, Singapore Airlines, Somon Air, Thai Airways and Uzbekistan Airways.”
On top of this, it looks like things will go a little further from the German airport:
“In order to meet the growing demand for air travel, Lufthansa will periodically deploy the world’s largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380, on the route to Delhi from April 1, 2024.”
“The service to Beijing will be increased from three weekly flights to a daily connection from April, while Osaka in Japan will be served five times a week from April and then daily from May.”
“Japanese airline All Nippon Airways is increasing its service in Munich from four to seven weekly flights from July 2.”
All eyes will be on how things perform for Munich Airport going into the Summer 2024 season with it’s Asia market.
