  • Route resumed to meet increased demand
  • Nonstop service from Denver to Germany expands to 12 flights
 Lufthansa German Airlines has re-launched its Denver to Munich route  With five flights per week to Munich (Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday), as well as daily service between Denver and Frankfurt, the route expands Lufthansa’s nonstop service from the Mile High City to Germany to 12 flights weekly. 

“Denver has been an important market for Lufthansa since 2001. The reintroduction of our Denver-Munich route increases capacity by nearly 50 percent, demonstrating the boost in demand we’re receiving from leisure and business travelers to both Munich and Frankfurt,” said Juergen Siebenrock, Vice President The Americas at Lufthansa German Airlines. “With all classes now offering the newest onboard product, our passengers traveling to Munich will experience the highest level of quality, as well as the premium customer service that Lufthansa is known for.”

During the beginning of the summer season, the Denver-Munich route is operated by an Airbus A330-300 with 236 seats in a four-class configuration that ensures a variety of booking options for travelers. From July 17 until, at least, the end of September, the route will - due to the high demand - be operated by an even larger aircraft, the Airbus A340-600, with a total of 297 seats. The First Class product, which received a five-star rating from Skytrax, features eight seats. Each of the 44 Business Class seats transform into a comfortable bed with a horizontal reclining area of nearly six and half feet. Located between Business and Economy Class, Lufthansa’s new Premium Economy Class has 32 seats and offers enhanced services that include 50 percent more space, a greater seat pitch, adjustable head and foot rests, and dedicated armrests. The A340-600’s Economy Class, which accommodates 213 passengers, features an in-seat video screen and an optimized ergonomic seat design with a slimmer seat back that adds to more personal space per passenger. All passengers have access to FlyNet, Lufthansa’s broadband internet product.

“This new nonstop service will provide access to Munich International Airport, one of the fastest and most convenient hubs, with just 40-minute connection times to 150 destinations including one-stop access to nearly 30 new cities,” Denver Airport CEO Kim Day said. “And while the Mile High City offers many synergies with the Bavarian capital that will attract visitors, passengers on the arriving flight to Denver will also have convenient connections to over 170 nonstop destinations around the world through Denver International Airport’s growing network of airlines and destinations.”

Munich – For Business and Pleasure

Munich has a population of 1.52 million and is located north of the Bavarian Alps in the southern part of Germany. Second only to Berlin in terms of tourism, Munich is known for its Christmas Markets, Beer Gardens and Oktoberfest celebrations. Publishing, fashion, high-tech and automotive are among the industries that comprise the city’s bustling business community, which is the European headquarters of numerous international corporations.

Munich International Airport is Europe’s seventh busiest, and according to this year’s Skytrax rating, also Europe’s best airport. The award-winning Terminal 2, a joint venture between Deutsche Lufthansa AG and Flughafen Muenchen GmbH, is a central hub for Lufthansa and its partner airlines, and offers an industry-leading 40-minute average connection time to 150 destinations. On April 26, 2016, the new Terminal 2 Satellite Building opened. It includes five new Lufthansa lounges, as well as 27 additional gate positions that allow passengers to board aircraft directly without bus transportation. Travelers enjoy an array of shopping and dining options, as well as express and family-friendly check-in processes, and an automated underground passenger transport system connecting the Satellite Building and the original Terminal 2 in less than one minute. In line with Lufthansa’s commitment to sustainability, the new satellite facility was designed to emit 40 percent lower levels of CO2 emissions than the two original terminals.
