CAPA: Munich Airport long haul growth to continue in 2020

    CAPA – Centre for Aviation, in a report entitled: ‘Munich Airport: long haul capacity growth outpaces Frankfurt‘, stated (23-Sep-2019) Munich‘s long haul growth has been driven by destinations in North America and Asia Pacific over the past two years. Current indications of plans by Lufthansa and Eurowings suggest North America will further increase its importance to Munich‘s long haul growth in 2020. Munich has more capacity to major long haul regions than other European airports with higher total passenger numbers. Munich has almost three times the Asia Pacific capacity of Madrid and almost the same North America capacity. Compared with Barcelona, the airport has nearly five times the Asia Pacific seat numbers and 40% more North America capacity. [more – CAPA Analysis]
