Munich one of the best transfer airports worldwide
First place for punctuality among European hubs
Munich is one of the best transfer airports in the world. This was the result of the World Airport Award bestowed by the aviation research institute Skytrax. Terminal 2, which is used exclusively by Lufthansa, the Star Alliance and its partner airlines, was ranked by passengers as among the best six in the world in the category World’s Best Airport for Transit Passengers.
The terminal’s special architectural concept means that passengers are able to transfer to one of 130 destinations in 45 countries in a very short time. And Lufthansa’s Munich hub is also well-known for its punctuality. In the first quarter of 2014 Munich was in first place among European hubs, according to the statistics compiled by the Association of European Airports (AEA). Over 93 per cent of all Lufthansa flights took off on time.
Anyone with a bit more time to spare can enjoy the facilities at Terminal 2. Lufthansa passengers rate Terminal 2 as one of the best airport terminals in the world (global ranking No. 5). They repeatedly gave it top marks for travel experience, comfort and leisure activities, which took second place in this category after Singapore. Customers praise the quiet areas and the range of entertainment available to passengers. The Lufthansa lounges cover an area of some 5,000 square metres and offer additional amenities. Underneath there is also the Lufthansa Business Lounge with a Bavarian beer garden and an exquisite Lufthansa First Class Lounge. Terminal 2 also scores highly with its 50 bars and restaurants. Munich is number two worldwide in the category “Best Airport for Dining”.
For the seventh time in a row Munich Airport has been voted best European airport. In the global rankings, Munich came in an excellent third place.
