Lufthansa Airlines is set to increase its direct flight offerings departing from San Diego.

Making travel to Germany more convenient. The airline is planning to boost its flight services from San Diego International Airport (SAN) to Munich’s Franz Josef Strauss International Airport (MUC) by an impressive 70% starting in the spring of the next year.

Presently, Lufthansa operates three weekly flights on the SAN-MUC route, but come April 2024, this frequency will increase to five days a week. By June 2024, the airline is aiming to provide daily flights on this route.

Kimberly Becker, President and CEO of the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, expressed, “Munich has consistently been a favored international destination for travelers. The expansion of Lufthansa’s flight schedule to daily service next year will offer even more opportunities for both leisure and business travelers, further promoting economic growth in both regions.”

Lufthansa had previously offered nonstop flights to Frankfurt, Germany, but this service was temporarily halted in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, San Diego International Airport has witnessed a robust recovery.

In fact, the airport reports that the number of passengers traveling between San Diego and Europe is now 12% higher than in 2019. The additional Lufthansa Airlines flights to Munich are intended to meet the rising demand from the San Diego area.

Dirk Janzen, Vice President of Passenger Sales for Lufthansa Group Airlines, shared his enthusiasm: “San Diego has become one of our key West Coast gateways, and we are excited to offer daily flights to Munich starting in the summer season of 2024. This expansion means more travel opportunities for our customers, not only to Bavaria but also across Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and beyond.”

These added routes between San Diego and Germany will be serviced by Lufthansa Airlines’ Airbus aircraft with 293 seats.
