Lufthansa will no longer take up the ultra-short-haul flight between Nuremberg and Munich, but instead relocate it to the road. A "Lufthansa Express Bus" is to be set up, a spokeswoman confirmed to Airliners.de.

The decision could also have been due to political pressure, because the Greens have raised the mood against the 150-kilometer flight route in the past. Among other things, this was presented as an “ecological absurdity”. The train is not a sensible alternative, however, because due to the lack of an ICE connection, Lufthansa has not been able to establish a corresponding cooperation with Deutsche Bahn AG.

Cooperation with Deutsche Post was a failure

In the past, Lufthansa operated so-called “Lufthansa Express Buses” on the Saarbrücken-Frankfurt, Bonn-Frankfurt and Regensburg-Munich routes. These were handed over to the then Postbus in 2015 as part of a cooperation with Deutsche Post. In addition, buses with LH flight numbers were offered from Salzburg, Innsbruck and Wörgl to Munich Airport. The project was unsuccessful and was discontinued shortly after the Postbus business was sold to Flixbus. The largest long-distance bus company has not taken over the cooperation with the crane.

Currently there is only one long-distance bus route that Lufthansa has a subcontractor operate between Strasbourg and Frankfurt am Main Airport. The “Lufthansa Express Bus” brand is used here. The service is only accessible to airline passengers and has Lufthansa flight numbers.

In Munich, Autobus Oberbayern operates a shuttle bus service between the airport and the city center as part of a franchise agreement. Use is not linked to a Lufthansa ticket. Tickets can be bought both online and spontaneously from the bus driver.
