Stefan Kreuzpaintner, Head of the Munich hub and Head of Sales for the Lufthansa Group, said:
We are pleased to be able to offer an attractive long-haul destination as a new route from Munich for the first time since the pandemic began. Due to the high demand, Munich is the third hub of the Lufthansa Group to add Dubai to its flight schedule, after Frankfurt and Zurich. And for the first time, our passengers will be able to travel from Munich to the Emirates on the most sustainable long-haul aircraft in our fleet: the Airbus A350-900.
This is not a new route for the German flag carrier. The airline flew between Munich International Airport and Dubai International Airport from 2003 to 2016, most recently with an Airbus A330.
Lufthansa recently announced that it will re-activate 5 of its Airbus A340-600s in order to give more premium options to travel. The carrier has also enabled fast check-in with digital vaccination certificate.
