MUNICH, Germany—For the first time, Munich Airport is welcoming non-stop flights from Munich to Rio de Janeiro and San Diego, California and also again to Bangkok via Lufthansa Airlines’ highly attractive summer intercontinental long-haul flights program out of the Bavarian state.

Mumbai, Toronto and Washington are also back on the flight schedule after an extended break. Now, the intercontinental network from Munich features 21 destinations, 10 more than in 2021. The flights are operated by Airbus A350, the world’s most sustainable long-haul aircraft. The Airbus A350 emits 30 percent less CO2 and makes only half as much noise as previous aircraft models.

LH466 had since took off for the first time from Munich to San Diego and is scheduled up to five times a week at 12:40 p.m. Already on Sunday, LH500 to Rio de Janeiro took off at 12:15 p.m. – the inauguration of five weekly flights.  Also on Sunday, LH772 started again at 10:45 p.m. for Bangkok. The flight to the Thai capital is offered daily.
