The passengers flying between Rzeszow and Munich will board a Canadair RJ 900 aircraft. Machines operating on the evening flight from Munich will be waiting in the morning for the passengers from Rzeszow, thus minimizing the risk of a delay or flight cancellation due to weather conditions.

New flights are a tailored answer for specific passenger needs. The morning flight from Rzeszow will provide the passengers with more fluid transitions to connections offered from the Lufthansa hub airport in Munich. The passengers will be able to conveniently travel to many cities both in Europe and intercontinentally, including such destinations as: Dusseldorf, Zurich, Turin as well as New York, Chicago and Hong Kong. More frequent flights from Rzeszow will help the passengers to reach any of the 343 destinations offered by the Lufthansa Group in its international network of flights.

„The increase in the frequency of the flights between Rzeszow and Munich proves that the Lufthansa Group acts to meet the expectations of the passengers from all regions of Poland. We are present on the Polish market for many years, and we operate on the airport in Rzeszow for 9 years. New flights will help the passengers form Rzeszow to connect with the vast Lufthansa Group’s network of flights offered from the hub in Munich” – says Frank Wagner, Country Manager of the Lufthansa Group in Poland.

“We are pleased to develop our cooperation with one of the biggest airlines in the world. Additional flights in more convenient hours should guarantee an increase in the number of served passengers, especially in the corporate sector. This is a perfect solution for local entrepreneurs and foreign companies more eagerly investing in our region with each passing year. We estimate that the direct flights from Rzeszow to Munich will benefit nearly 60 thousand passengers” – says Michal Tabisz, Chief of the Rzeszow-Jasionka Airport.

New flight hours will enable the corporate passengers to travel from and back to Rzeszow in one day. Moreover, the Partner Plus Benefit (PPB) loyalty programme for enterprises of all sizes allows its member companies to earn points that can be ex-changed for award tickets, upgrades, lounge access, vouchers for on-board internet access and a range of other travel-related awards. Up to May 31st the amount of points awarded for traveling on the Rzeszow-Munich route is tripled. This means that, for example, traveling on this route six times during that period would yield the member company a free ticket for a next such flight.

European flights to its hubs, such as the Munich airport, offered by Lufthansa are well appreciated. In March 2019 Lufthansa was awarded with the CEESAR Award for “the Best Short-Haul Airline”. The annual „CEESAR Awards” contest dates back to 2004. From this year onward it reflects unfiltered opinions of verified clients not only from Poland but form the whole CEE region.

Hub in Munich is the first European airport awarded with the prestigious title of a “Five-Star Airport” by the Skytrax institute, based in London, and Lufthansa is the only European five-star carrier. Recently opened building of the Terminal 2 – Satellite – impresses the travelers with its bright, spacious design, welcoming atmosphere, huge range of shops, restaurant and lounge zones as well as a breathtaking view on the flight lane and Bavarian Alps in the distance. It’s one of the most modern airport buildings in the world. The Terminal 2 was named “World’s Number One Terminal” in the Skytrax World Airport Awards contest. Residing on the Munich Airport is a big pleasure, so it’s often chosen as a transitional hub by the passengers.
