Munich on the up again


Munich Airport was the only German major air hub to increase freight traffic in 2023 with an increase of 6.6% year on year, said the Bavarian gateway. Total airfreight volume in Germany as a whole fell by 7.1%, according to German Airports Association figures.

Munich’s freight totalled 284,000 tons, much of it belly cargo, which grew by 11%. January and February 2024 were up by 6.5% and 10.8% respectively on 2023 and freight is now back to almost 90% of the pre-pandemic level.

Munich now has direct connections to China, a new route to Bangalore and four weekly flights to Taipei. This year, it will gain new routes to Seattle, Johannesburg, and Vietnam, as well as additional flights to Beijing and Osaka.

DHL Express will open a new freight building in summer.
