Lufthansa finally launches Munich flights to Mexico City

The wait is over! Lufthansa’s Munich to Mexico City service finally became reality on 3 April with the start of a five times weekly service operated by the airline’s A340-600s. Munich becomes just the sixth European airport to offer direct scheduled services to Mexico City this summer. Pictured preparing to cut the ribbon are (left to right): Mr. Helmut Wölfel (Deutsche Lufthansa), Her Excellency Patricia Espinosa Cantellano (Mexican ambassador in Germany), Mr. Vincente Salas Hesselbach (Director of the Mexican Tourist Office); Mrs. Ulrike Wolf (Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology); and Mr. Michael Kerkloh (CEO of Munich Airport).

  • Lufthansa, after several false starts, and not withstanding a pilot strike, finally launched services from Munich (MUC) to Mexico City (MEX) on 3 April. The 9,860-kilometre route was first scheduled to start as long ago as 2012, but now Lufthansa is operating the route five times weekly using its A340-600s. Munich thus becomes only the sixth European airport to have non-stop scheduled air services to Mexico City this summer after Amsterdam (KLM), Frankfurt (Lufthansa), London Heathrow (Aeromexico and British Airways), Madrid (Aeromexico and Iberia), Paris CDG (Aeromexico and Air France).
