Munich Airport and Lufthansa are reaffirming their strategic partnership by signing a letter of intent (LOI) to 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.
Shared goals of sustainability
Jost Lammers, CEO of Munich Airport, said: “We went through the hard times of the COVID-19 pandemic together with Lufthansa and we will return to our former strength together. 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.”
Stefan Kreuzpaintner, CCO of Lufthansa Airlines, said: “Our partnership with Munich Airport can definitely be described as unique. 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.”
