Edinburgh-Munich with Lufthansa

Posted: 25th July 2018

New winter route to launch in December.

A new route between Edinburgh and the German city of Munich will take-off this winter.

The Lufthansa service will fly twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays during the winter season with the first flight departing on December 1st. It will operate on an A319 which offers 28 business class seats, the only business class product between the cities.

It adds to the existing routes to Munich operated by Eurowings and easyJet, further strengthening Edinburgh’s links to Germany and beyond thanks to the hub connectivity to Central and Eastern Europe.

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said:

“Edinburgh’s Christmas has a flavour of Germany with its own German markets but what a fantastic opportunity to get away and experience it first-hand in Munich with the launch of this winter route.

“We have great connections to Munich and this of course opens up other areas in Central and Eastern Europe thanks to the hub connectivity, and that’s what we want to offer passengers – greater choice and travel flexibility.”

The flight schedule for both Tuesday and Saturday is:

MUC-EDI – 1000-1120

EDI-MUC – 1205-1510

The flight will operate Saturday 1 December to Saturday 30 March.
