Munich Airport has announced that it will restart operations at Terminal 1 on 23rd June 2021.
This means that all airlines which had been temporarily relocated to Terminal 2 will move back to Terminal 1, with the exception of Eurowings for the time being.
The announcement comes after the airport recorded its highest traffic figure in over 9 months last Sunday, with around 400 flights and 36,000 passengers.
Munich Airport also says that the easing of pandemic-related restrictions had also seen more restaurants and shops reopen at Terminal 1, with a current list of operating outlets available here.
Note that masks are still mandatory inside terminal buildings, although they no longer have to be worn outside in the Munich Airport Forum.
Lufthansa’s newest subsidiary airline, Eurowings Discover is launching new long-haul leisure routes from Munich to Punta Cana, Cancun and Las Vegas next summer. Lufthansa has also announced new Summer leisure destinations from Munich.
Jost Lammers, CEO, Munich airport, commenting on the news, said:
We are now clearly seeing more activity at our airport again. From the connections on offer, it can also be recognized that this increasing demand is not only coming from leisure travellers. It is also about family reunions, cultural and economic exchanges, meetings between athletes and scientists, or even professional training and internships, where young people can gain their first international experience. Here it becomes obvious how crucial global air traffic is, because it satisfies a wide variety of mobility needs.
The announcement from Munich Airport follows the reopening of Terminal 2 at Frankfurt Airport at the start of this month.
