Lufthansa is now operating one more flight directly connecting the cities of Porto and Munich. The plane will leave Porto at 6:10 am, heading to the Bavarian capital, and is scheduled to arrive in Munich at 10:05 am (local time). This way, and according to the German airline, "passengers from Porto will have greater flexibility and will be able to reach almost all connecting flights in Munich, thanks to the early morning arrival time".
The return flight to Porto is scheduled for late evening, leaving Munich at 9:30 pm and scheduled to arrive in Porto at 11:25 pm.
“This additional frequency reflects Lufthansa's ongoing commitment to Portugal”, says Thomas Ahlers, General Director of Sales for the Lufthansa Group for Portugal. “And if we look at the growth of the Lufthansa Group from Porto as a whole, that is, in addition to Lufthansa, SWISS, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings, we are offering a third more flights than in 2019.” In total, the German airline will now offer 253 weekly connections from five Portuguese airports (Porto, Lisbon, Faro, Funchal and Ponta Delgada).
This new flight doubles the capacity of the Porto-Munich connection, benefiting not only passengers visiting on business, but also the tourism sector in Porto and the North of Portugal. This flight will be operated with a Lufthansa Airbus A320, with a total capacity of 162 passengers.
The two Lufthansa flights to Munich complete the three daily flights to Frankfurt, which means that the airline offers a total of five daily connections throughout the day to and from Porto. SWISS, Eurowings and Brussels Airlines also operate flights from Porto to their respective hubs. With 13 daily departures from Porto, the Lufthansa Group registers a growth of 34% compared to 2019.
