Book a Private Jet to Munich

Munich’s Franz Josef Strauss Airport is the second largest airport in Germany and one of the most important aviation hubs in Europe. The airport is located 28 kilometres outside of Munich and currently has two runways which can both be used by aircraft of all weights and classes.

Munich MUC Airport

Munich’s international airport, which bears the name of Bavarian politician Franz Josef Strauss, was opened in spring 1992. It replaced Munich Riem Airport, which was not expanded due to its proximity to the city centre and the increasing volume of air traffic. The change from the old airport to the new, caused a sensation. After the last scheduled flight in Riem took off, shortly before midnight, the transition to the new airport took place and was completed within one night. A further milestone was the opening of Terminal 2 in 2003, which significantly increased the capacity of the airport and improved its facilities. This expansion, however, sufficed for only a few years: in the spring of 2016, a new satellite terminal and an extension of Terminal 2 were added. The construction of a third runway at Franz Josef Strauss Airport and the expansion of Terminal 1 are currently being planned.
