Nobody will remember 2020 and 2021 as the best years for travel, but aeroplanes have kept on flying and airports have kept working, because people need to travel, even when everything has ground to a halt.
During the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, we have applied and are still applying all the essential protocols, with the Lufthansa Group, to ensure the utmost safety for passengers on our aeroplanes and in the airports in which we operate.
Franz Josef Strauss International Airport (MUC) in Munich, one of our main hubs, has received a 5-star rating again in 2020, an accolade it also received in 2017 from the London-based Skytrax Institute, on account of its innovative services that optimise the transit experience for passengers from all over the world.
The spread of COVID-19 has certainly given rise to new travel conditions and exceptional provisions when it comes to health and safety and managing the current emergency. In view of these new needs, security checks are now even faster and fluid, paying particular attention to those areas of the airport where the risk of creating queues and gatherings is higher.
The transit experience in Munich is pleasant and dynamic for both business passengers and for those flying from/to Munich for family or personal reasons thanks to the very high hygiene standards across the airport and the private recreation and work areas in Terminal 2.
Finally, we recommend stopping at the new Mountain Hub Restaurant in Hilton Munich Airport Hotel for anyone looking for an extraordinary food experience!
