A new service from Munich Airport in Germany to Colombia starts on November 17, when South American airline Avianca launches a new connection from Bogotá to Munich. It is the carrier’s first-ever non-stop service from the Colombian capital to a German destination, and will depart five times a week. Passengers flying to Bogotá will benefit from the wide range of connecting flights to attractive Latin American destinations offered by the Star Alliance member Avianca at its home hub.

In further news from Munich, Lufthansa is stepping up its service to Miami this winter from three departures a week to a daily flight. This service will now be operated with an Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger aircraft. With the start of the airport’s winter timetable from Sunday, October 28, Lufthansa will operate its Munich to San Francisco service with the A380 for the first time. The German carrier will also continue the new flights to Singapore that it launched in the summer.

Also, US airline United is continuing its daily connection to the Texan metropolis of Houston into the winter season this year. And with the addition of two new weekly flights to Beijing, Air China will fly from Munich for the Chinese capital seven days a week. In the coming winter season, Thai Airways International will make its daily flights to Bangkok with a modern Boeing 777 aircraft instead of the Boeing 747 as before. This means that there are no longer any ‘Jumbo jets’ in operation at Munich Airport at present.

On February 16, 2019, Munich will mark the debut of a new airline at the airport with the launch of 18 weekly departures to London City Airport by the British carrier BA CityFlyer.

Additionally, Norwegian Air will triple the number of flights to the beach destinations of Alicante, Gran Canaria, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca and Tenerife to a total of 29 weekly departures. The low-cost carrier is also adding more flights to Oslo this winter, offering a daily service as compared to three flights a week as before.
