Cheap flights to Franz Josef Strauß (MUC)
Located 17.7 miles (28.5 km) north-east of the center of Munich, Munich International Airport (MUC) is officially known as Franz Josef Strauss. It is Germany’s second-busiest airport and the seventh-busiest in Europe. In 2010, it handled almost 35 million passengers. In 2011 the airport was awarded the title of “Europe’s Best Airport” (for the sixth time since 2005) and ranked fourth best in the world by air transport research company Skytrax.
The airport comprises two terminals connected by the Munich Airport Center, a large outdoor tent-type area that accommodates most of the facilities, including a vast array of retail, business and recreational establishments. There is also a Visitors Park which features a Visitors Hill from which sightseers may view Terminal 1 and the westerly aircraft apron. Plans to expand Terminal 2, approved in 2010, will see Munich International’s handling capacity increase by 11 million passengers per year.
With a combination of world-class facilities and efficient services, it’s no surprise that Munich International is ranked among the finest in the world. Clean and modern – it even has its own brewery – with friendly and helpful staff, visitors may look forward to experiencing nothing less than the best from Munich International.
