The Airports Council International (ACI) has revealed that Munich Airport is now ranked 5th in its Airport Industry Connectivity Report 2022, which looked at the number of available destinations.
The report is published annually and evaluates the scope and quality of potential connections of international airports. A press release by the airport stated it had climbed seven positions since last year “and now belongs to the world's best transfer airports with Amsterdam, Istanbul, Frankfurt and Paris (CDG) in terms of connection quality.”
This is primarily the result of the rapid relaunch of services at the Bavarian hub. As soon as the recovery phase began after the pandemic-related travel restrictions were lifted, the Lufthansa Group, together with its Star Alliance partners, decided to resume connections to the vast majority of destinations – albeit with lower frequencies – in order to ensure the greatest possible connectivity.
"Connectivity is a key quality feature for any aviation hub. We are very pleased to be rated so highly in an international comparison with our current flight offering and appreciate to see strong demand and excellent load factors," commented Oliver Dersch, Senior Vice President Aviation at Munich Airport.
