Starting April 2020, Munich, Germany will be one nonstop flight away from Orlando. The flight services will be provided by Eurowings, an airline of the Lufthansa Group, and will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. The new service offers new connections to hundreds of destinations across four continents just one stop away from Orlando.
The new route is expected to generate more than $20 million annually for the Central Florida economy and demonstrates the commitment to exploring and encouraging the opening of international markets for local and business travelers to visit.
“Our service at Orlando Airport has been a success story for the Lufthansa Group since launching flights 12 years ago. Now, with the new Eurowings service to Munich, Europe’s only 5-Star Airport, we are able to offer more connections to destinations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia to our customers in Central Florida. At the same time, we continue to support the thriving Orlando tourism industry, popular with leisure travelers from across the Lufthansa Group network,” said Frank Naeve, Vice President of Sales, The Americas, Lufthansa Group.
Munich is home to Oktoberfest in addition to other German tourist attractions such as the Residenz Royal Palace, the Bavarian State Opera, and the BMW World Complex. Munich offers a superior business environment and is one of the leading economic regions in Europe with ties to Orlando.
Munich is Orlando’s 13th European destination and second in Germany. This route will increase the ease of travel for approximately 70,0000 Germans who travel to Central Florida each year.
The new MCO-MUC route will be serviced by an Airbus A330-200 with 270 seats; 22 in business, 17 in premium economy, and 231 in economy. Flights can now be booked on Eurowings.com and Lufthansa.com as well as all booking channels and outlets.
