All the airlines which were temporarily relocated to Terminal 2 will move back there - except for Eurowings, which will remain in Terminal 2 for the time being.

Lufthansa will step by step expand its long-haul services from Munich again. In July, the airline will resume its North American routes to Boston, New York (JFK), Charlotte and Vancouver. Currently, Lufthansa serves five long-haul destinations from Munich Airport: Newark, Chicago, Los Angeles, Denver and Seoul.

With Tokyo, Washington, Shanghai and Osaka, Lufthansa will re-launch four more intercontinental routes from Munich in August. This will bring the total number of long-haul connections offered by Lufthansa from Munich to 13 - all operated by Airbus A350 aircraft.

United Airlines has resumed its scheduled service to San Francisco and will increase its routes to Washington and Chicago to a daily operation before the end of June. From the beginning of July, United will also reinstate its flights from Munich to Newark.

Due to the recent easing of pandemic-related restrictions, the choice of restaurants and stores at Munich Airport is also growing: many of the restaurants have also reopened inside, and numerous stores at the airport are once again welcoming customers.

All travelers are requested to observe the current distance and hygiene rules. Masks are still mandatory inside buildings - outside in the Munich Airport Forum (MAC), masks are no longer obligatory.
