Munich MUC AIRPORT OVERVIEW

Munich International Airport MUC is presently Germany's second-largest airport, serving the State of Bavaria and its capital city Munich.  It  has been voted by Skytrax as 'Europe's Best Airport' seven consecutive years, and has moved up to number 3 in ranking among global airports of this size.  Munich  Airport opened in 1992, and 20 years later celebrated its 500 millionth passenger arrival.  In 2015, Skytrax declared Munich Airport as being a '5-star Airport' - maintaining its title in March 2017 (along with Doha Airport). In 2016 it was voted 'Europe's Best Airport' by Skytrax and given number 4 among the World's Best Airports.  Furthermore, in 2017 Terminal 2 was declared the 'World's Best Airport Terminal' (serving Lufthansa and its Star Alliance). In June 2017 ACI awarded MUC the highest environmental ranking.
The  new subsidiary company 'Munich Airport International' centralized its international activities of airport management and consultancy.

MUC Airport is located inside of three municipalities, Oberding, Hallbergmoos & Marzling, and is 18 miles northeast of Munich (25 minutes from city center) - accessible via Autobahn A-92 and A-9.

With two very long runways and 42.3M passengers in 2016, Munich International Airport is served by a large number of major & minor, regular and low-cost airlines, offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe - as well as by seasonal charters to popular vacation destinations. 

The on-Airport hotel 'Hilton at Munich Airport' with 551 rooms and direct terminal access can be recognized by its glass atrium in the center.

Current and future Airport Developments:  The summer timetable ending October 28, 2017 includes 250,000 flights to 238 destinations in 68 countries. During this period, Lufthansa and United will both offer daily flights to San Francisco, while Condor is adding two weekly departures to each Las Vegas and Seattle.  Condor also offers a weekly service to Holguin (at Cuba's east). As of late June, Saudia offers 4 weekly flights to Riyadh and 3 to Jeddah. Eurowings during summer 2017 offers 31 European destinations to Italy, Greece & Croatia.
  - Munich Airport is to get a new runway.  
  - Current Plans for future T1 expansion are intended to boost capacity by 6M passengers annually. The design is based on (a) a 3-level central building complex structure with a core adjoining the current T1 and (b) a new pier /Concourse. The expansion project - including affected arrival areas at current Module B - are to cover around 80,000 sq.meters (the construction process is comparative to building a whole new airport).
- The core building is to house the central security & passport control, as well as Food & drink & retail outlets.
- The apron level is to house baggage claim and departure gates for non-pierside aircraft and will be connected to the current terminal at Module B.
- The level above the departure area is to channel arriving passengers to either security screening, down to the baggage claim area with a spacious lounge area, or to connecting flights
- The new Pier /Concourse - to be linked to T1's A & B modules - is to be extend by 320 meters into the Airport’s western apron, with stands to handle up to 12 aircraft, 2 of which are for Airbus A380.
The Construction project may start in 2018, while the new pier is to become operational by around 2022.
