A start date of set 3 February as been set by Lufthansa for its Newcastle – Munich service, one of two new European routes out of the German hub. The second, to Estonian capital Tallinn, was launched in November. Both are served by the Airbus A319.
Hub Munich CEO Wilken Bormann said: "We are continuously expanding our route network within Europe and our latest two additions are particularly interesting for business travellers while also offering tourist highlights."
The Newcastle – Munich link, which will operate daily except Saturdays, has already won a vote of confidence from frequent flyer Richard Swart, who works for a Munich-based German multi-national corporation and takes some 150 flights a year.
He said: “We have many meetings through the year and the new Lufthansa route will make getting there much easier. It will probably save around half a day each time we use it as this is how long it often takes to connect.
“On top of that, Munich as an airport is good for global connectivity and gives a more open choice for people starting their journeys in Newcastle.”
Munich’s other new destination, Tallinn, with flights on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, is also an important business destination as it is considered the economically strongest city in Estonia and is home to the largest banking sector in the Baltic states.
