Thanks to the cooperation between Lufthansa and BMW and airport improvements, the largest short- and medium-haul aircraft of the German airline will now connect Debrecen twice a week with the Bavarian capital, which is also home to BMW’s headquarters.

Lufthansa and BMW have signed a long-term agreement to launch the largest 215-seat Airbus aircraft twice a week between Debrecen and Munich, enhancing capacity and enabling BMW employees to train in Munich.

“This will prepare our team for the start of production next year and help them to get home,” CFO of BMW Group Plant Debrecen Eske Herrström said.

Lufthansa Vice President Johannes Walter stressed that sustainable transport is a priority for both the airline and the vehicle manufacturer.

“Our aim is to connect people, cultures and economies in a sustainable way, which is why BMW’s electromobility drive is so important to us, “ the Lufthansa Vice President said.

Mayor László Papp announced that the airport is undergoing terminal expansion to improve efficiency and serve passengers faster. The airport is also upgrading its security systems and planning major terminal development in the coming years.

From now on, Lufthansa’s largest short- and medium-haul aircraft will operate four flights a week between Debrecen and Munich on Mondays and Fridays. It is the largest aircraft that Debrecen airport can currently accommodate.
