Munich Airport expects the number of passengers to increase sharply with the start of the summer holidays in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. The airlines have so far registered 40.000 movements – twice as many as in the same period last year.

The school holidays in this region of Germany start on July 29, 2022 and end on September 12, 2022. During this period, up to 900 planes will take off and land in Munich every day. In view of the increased volume of traffic and the current turbulence in European air traffic, passengers should plan a time buffer and be at the terminal around two and a half hours before departure. At the start of the holiday season, additional staff deployed in the terminals will provide passengers with assistance on all questions relating to the handling process.

The range of flights from Munich currently consists of around 200 destinations. With 1.922 departures, most departures go to Italy during the summer holidays. Spain followed closely behind with 1.778 starts. The most frequently flown holiday destination remains Palma de Mallorca (429 departures). 1.175 aircraft take off for Greece. 1.133 aircraft take off for France and 1.073 departures for Turkey. Machines take off for Portugal 411 times.

Numerous long-haul destinations are also offered from Munich. Destinations in the USA in particular are served frequently: During the summer holidays, travelers can choose from a total of 911 departures to 14 American destinations. A further 184 flights lead to three Canadian destinations. A total of 92 flights took off for Qatar and 129 for the United Arab Emirates. 92 departures are offered on the route from Munich to Bangkok. Other non-stop services from Munich lead to destinations in India (53 departures), Singapore (79), South Korea (46) and Oman (27).
