Lufthansa, the first and only 5-star airline in Europe, announced on 28 March to increase its frequency of the Incheon-Munich route starting 1 April, when summer schedule begins.
Being the only carrier that offers direct flights between Incheon and Munich since 2007, Lufthansa is going to fly daily between the two destinations - instead of 6 times a week in the past - when the new summer schedule kicks in.
"Lufthansa has been making continuous efforts portraying its commitment and contribution to the South Korean market. We offer connectivity and convenience to various destinations from Frankfurt and Munich”, said Alejandro Arias, the General Manager Korea of Lufthansa Group Airlines. He also emphasised, "Especially through the extension this year, we are excited to operate 14 flights a week to mark the 35th anniversary of our service in South Korea. We hope that more people get to enjoy what we put in place and we will strive for better service to benefit the travellers in South Korea".
Lufthansa currently departs from Incheon with the latest A350-900 jets to Munich Airport, one of Lufthansa's hub airports that features access to latest facilities and shorter transit times compared to other European airports. On top of that, South Korean passport holders also get to enjoy the automatic border control system (EasyPASS) into Germany making it least amount of time to move around within Europe.
For the very first time, Lufthansa will begin to fly 14 times a week into Germany through not only Munich but also Frankfurt to commemorate its 35 years of uninterrupted service in South Korea since 1984.
