Munich Airport and Lufthansa are strengthening their strategic partnership with the signing of a letter of intent (LOI) to intensify and continue the sustainable development of Munich Airport.
In the LOI, both parties commit to a shared sustainability strategy, to the expansion of Munich Airport as an intermodal transport hub, to the needs-based expansion of infrastructure, and to the promotion of digitalisation and innovation in operations. This includes projects such as smart passenger handling and automated handling processes in order to make passengers’ travel experience more enjoyable and efficient.
“We went through the hard times of the COVID-19 pandemic together with Lufthansa and we will return to our former strength together,” said Jost Lammers, CEO, Munich Airport. “With our shared goals of sustainability, innovation, digitalisation, and the persistent enhancement of Munich Airport as a premium hub, we will successfully continue this strategic partnership.”
In order to remain competitive in the long-term, both organisations are driving forward the fulfilment of their sustainability targets so that the entire Munich Airport campus will benefit from this. The commitment to the respective climate and sustainability goals is a central component of the LOI.
“Our partnership with Munich Airport can definitely be described as unique,” said Stefan Kreuzpaintner, CCO, Lufthansa Airlines. “Together, we will continue to take on and meet the challenges of the aviation industry. Sustainability is one of the top issues. This includes better rail links – not only to reach the airport quickly and conveniently, but also to make a vital contribution to climate change mitigation.”
