Skytrax: MUC celebrates sixth "European champion" title

Quote:
About 100 guests from airlines, government offices and businesses at Munich Airport got together this morning to celebrate the Bavarian hub's selection as the "European champion" in the World Airport Awards 2011. Speaking to the ga-thering, Bavarian finance minister Georg Fahrenschon, the chairman of the su-pervisory board of FMG, the airport's operating company, praised this extraordi-nary achievement: "Despite the enormous growth in traffic and the major expan-sion work, the passengers have reaffirmed that our airport has retained its key strengths: It is perceived as a reliable, friendly and aesthetically pleasing airport, but above all as a pleasant airport." Airport CEO Dr. Michael Kerkloh expressed his delight with the award and, looking ahead to the future, said that the airport community will continue to make every effort to "maintain the high quality stan-dards in times of rapidly increasing traffic figures."

This marks the sixth time Munich has topped the European rankings, which it won last year and four years in a row from 2005 to 2008. Munich has also placed near the top in the global level on a regular basis in recent years. In 2011 the Bavarian capital achieved fourth place worldwide behind Hong Kong, Singa-pore and Seoul. The renowned London-based aviation research institute Skytrax asked 11.4 million passengers from more than 100 countries around the world about their favorite airports.

For the World Airport Awards, the surveyed passengers rated more than 240 international airports as well as numerous airlines. They assessed airports in terms of numerous criteria, including quality of handling and services, staff cour-tesy and efficiency, shopping and leisure amenities and transit facilities. Munich earned "good" or "excellent" ratings in 32 of the 33 categories. In addition, the Kempinski Hotel Airport München was voted the second-best airport hotel in Eu-rope behind the Sofitel at London Heathrow. Another award was handed out in the special category "Leisure Amenities", in which Munich ranked number two in the world.

Emirates to launch A380 service to Munich from Jan 2012

From January 1 2012, the airline’s morning service to Munich (operated with Boeing 777-300) will be upgraded to a superjumbo.

Schedules:

EK049 DXB0910 – 1245MUC 388 D
EK051 DXB1630 – 2010MUC 343 D

EK050 MUC1425 – 2305DXB 388 D
EK052 MUC2140 – 0630+1DXB 343 D


Australia to Munich

Quote:
Travellers heading to Munich will be able to fly all the way from Australia on the Airbus A380, after Emirates revealed plans to replace one of its two daily flights from Dubai to Munich with the superjumbo. It's the airline's fourth A380 route into Europe (after London, Paris and Manchester) -- but with a plan to receive 90 of the world's biggest plane, it certainly won't be the last.

The flight change, which is bookable now and will come into effect on 1 January next year, sees the A380 replace an older Boeing 777-300 plane.

A380 flight EK49 from Dubai to Munich will leave daily at 0910 and arrive at 1245. The return flight, EK50, will leave Munich at 1425 and arrives in Dubai at 2305.

Emirates' other daily return flight (EK51 and EK52) will stay as a smaller Airbus A340-300. But the A340 is older than the A380 superjumbo, and the seats are regional recliner style rather than the more comfortable long-haul beds. So pick the A380 if you can.

Business class passengers on the A380 will appreciate the upgrade to flat beds where every passenger has direct access to the aisle, and there'll be more room with wider seats in Economy as well.

Planning to fly on Emirates' A380? Check out our guide to picking the best seats in Economy Class and the best fully-flat beds in Business Class on the superjumbo.

With the addition of Munich to the list of A380 destinations, Emirates passengers will now offer all-A380 flights between Sydney (extending to Auckland) and on to London Heathrow, Paris, Manchester and Jeddah.

Emirates also uses A380s on flights to Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Seoul, Shanghai and Toronto.

The government of Upper Bavaria approved the construction of the third runway (capacity from 90 up to 120 movements/hour, usable from 6 am to 10 pm). The airport announced that it will finance the whole billion euros of the investment itself.

However, discussions about the project go on as almost 50% of the areas' residents are against the project.

Munich sets half-year record as passenger numbers hit 17.9 million

GERMANY. Munich Airport set a new half-year passenger traffic record in the first six months of 2011, with traveller numbers at the southern German location reaching just under 17.9 million. This represented growth of +13.4% on the previous year.

The airport reported particularly strong growth in traffic to and from the “BRICS” markets of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, with average growth in volumes to these destinations of +26% in the first half of 2011.

Munich set a new daily traffic record on Friday June 10, when the airport handled over 130,000 passengers.

The airport cited the growth of Qatar Airways as a key factor in the upward traffic trend, with flights from Munich to Doha increasing from 7 to 11 weekly connections.

Take-offs and landings increased by +9% during the period to 202,000, another new record. Freight movements, meanwhile, also reached a new high, with cargo up +14% on the first six months of 2010.

Munich Airport CEO Dr Michael Kerkloh pointed to the significant growth in traffic as further evidence of the need to press ahead with the development of the airport, in particular the addition of a third runway and the approved creation of a new satellite for terminal two, designed to handle an extra 11 million passengers per year and scheduled for completion in 2015. The two projects “will guarantee urgently needed capacity and will secure the airport's competitiveness in the long term”, the airport argued.

“For Munich Airport, it's now a matter of maintaining our high quality standards – even and especially if we are moving up a level in terms of traffic volume,” added Kerkloh. “Building quantity while securing quality: that is the task we face in the coming years.”

Munich Airport forecasts that total passenger traffic will reach 37 million in 2011, a significant increase on the 34.7 million travellers welcomed in 2010.

Munich Airport’s duty free business is operated by Eurotrade, a subsidiary of the airport authority.

Afaik no; apparently they first have to solve various issues with residents (they apparently can sell their land to the airport as a compensation for the 2007 prices).
I guess it'll take some time untill construction starts.

According to a report of the Süddeutsche Zeitung, the growth calculations for the Munich Airport are based on a oil price of 50 dollar per barrel in the year 2020. Figures from 2006 and 2007 were used, publicised by the US Department of Energy under President George W. Bush.

The two terminals have an annual capacity of 50 million, yet why does the airport itself handle only 35 million passengers per annum presently? And how many runways can Munich Airport have when it is built out, 3 or 4?

Terminal 2 is at full capacity with 25 pax/year, but Terminal 1 only handles about 10 million. The new "satellite terminal" will be able to handle 17 million passengers per year.

I've not heard anything of a fourth runway yet. They might be able to fit in between the towns of Schwaig and Hallbergmoos, south of Terminal 1.

Lufthansa and the Star Alliance partners use the newer terminal 2 with its capacity of 25 million PAX. This capacity is completely used, so the new satellite is necessary for LH and the Star Alliance. The terminal 1 is not used completely, but LH and partners won't use this terminal because of the minimum connection time you would need. So therefor the 50 million capacity would not be reached with the current infrastructure. The biggest problem are the two runways. Lufthansa and partner are using MUC as a hub-airport. So they have peek hours where the flights land and depart. in these peek ours the landing and starting slots of the two runways are completely used, so there is a immediate need for a third runway to satisfy the demand of slots during these peek hours. The time between these peek hours, there would be some slots available but they are not attractive for LH and their partners because you have no optimal connection possibilities in those hours. Other airlines, who do not use the airport as a hub-airport often use those times to operate their flights. Those airlines are settled in terminal 1. So now you can see why terminal 1 is not at its maximal capacity. the demand from airlines who are not LH or partners is not as big as the LH and partners demand is. Especially in Munich, the pax numbers of LH and their partners ar soaring the last years, so the expansion of the airport is needed as soon as possible. The expansion of the terminal 2 with its satellite is important for comfort when connecting and for capacity expansion. It will give the airport 25 new gates with bridges, so passengers will not have to use the bus to reach their airplane any more. Thats a bis comfort and time advantage when you will use the airport as a connecting airport.

The new runway will make 120 starts and landing per hour possible and will so give MUC the possibility to satisfy the demands, especially for their home carrier Lufthansa and partners.

Recent news from MUC expansions activities

Key facts at a glance:
* Terminal 2 extension (this is the Star Alliance facility)
* Satellite Building comprising 123,000 sm, 600 meters long (parallel to the existing T2)
* Able to handle at least 11m pax per year
* Additional 52 a/c positions thereof 27 with gates
* Construction will be officially starting on April 23rd 2012 (albeit initial works have already begun)

Upon complition in 2015, MUC will be able to handle 50m pax per year.

I do not understand why they do follow the railway line up to Erding to go to the fair by train, same thing if they were a railway line up to Moosbur for IC, EC, IRE, ALEX to Prague, Hof, and Nurnberg on Regensburg.

Today's referendum in Munich turned out to be against the third runway. There were three questions:
A. In favor of the expansion: Yes 46,8%, No 53,2%
B. Against the expansion: Yes 55,4%, No 44,6%
C. If A and B happen to be both Yes or No, shall the 3rd runway be built: Yes 45,7%, No 54,3%

The mayor of Munich, Christian Ude, has now to vote against the expansion in the council of airport-shareholders. As decisions have to be made in unison, the 3rd runway will not be built for at least one year, as the referendum cast down on Ude by the Munich citizens is only valid for one year. The 3rd runway is not dead yet, Bavarian state parliament elections are coming up in autumn 2013 and the airport will surely play an important part during the campaign.

In a nutshell: - No need for a 3rd runway, instead of 5 flights per day to Stuttgart/Zurich/Frankfurt the money should be used to improve train connections
- the 3rd runway is a symbol for the state government and the airport administration's wishful thinking for even more economic growth and based on shoddy calculations
- air and noise pollution would futher increase (especially in the near city of Freising, whose district administrator is a member of the green party)
- the Lufthansa as most important airline at MUC has troubles to operate it's inner-european flight without losses
- the city of Munich has already very high property and rent prices so a third runway and therefore more jobs would make prices even more expensive,
- 20 years after the opening of MUC the rail connection from the city center is still difficult
- the suburban train system in Munich is at it's limit, so the money should be spent on a second tunnel through the city center or the expansion of the southern bypass (Donnersbergerbrücke - Ostbahnhof)

Crap, I wish they build it as departing Munich causes daily delays of 10-15 minutes in good weather conditions for most flights already due to lack of capacity. Voting against the runway is like saying: no we don't want economic growth, no we don't want more jobs and no we don't want to improve our mobility...

No comparison! The planes are in average much much larger and run on a very high level of utilization at Heathrow. A level MUC will never reach and it'll be never the goal to achieve. MUC is providing lots of destinations at frequent service to many SE, NE and EE airports. This offer is part of the concept in whole as a major economic factor for Bavaria.
