Lufthansa Announced New Nonstop Service to Munich from Seattle in 2020

Germany’s number one airline, Lufthansa, announced a new nonstop service to Seattle from the Bavarian Capitol Munich. Why am I so excited about this? Munich used to be my home airport. Munich is still an important airport for me to visit family and friends back in Germany.

Even tho, I haven’t been flying much Lufthansa lately or even Star Alliance, which Lufthansa is part of. Still, this will be exciting news for many travelers, no matter if leisure or business.

Munich is home to BMW and Siemens, which is known all over the world, as well to the Microsoft Headquarter in Germany. But Munich has much more to offer than just business. Everyone knows the Oktoberfest, and yes the original and world-famous Oktoberfest is home here in Munich. From Munich, it’s just a short drive to the Bavarian Alps, Austria, Switzerland, and many other destinations.

Lufthansa already operates a nonstop flight from Seattle to Frankfurt, Germany’s busiest airport and one of the major airports in Europe.

The new nonstop service between Seattle and Munich will start in June 2020. Lufthansa will operate this service initially six times a week and operates every day except on Thursday.

Lufthansa will operate the fuel-efficient Airbus A350-900. The airline’s quietest and most environmentally-friendly aircraft.

Route Flight # Departure Arrival
MUC to SEA LH488 3:30 p.m. 4:55 p.m. (same day)
SEA to MUC LH489 6:45 p.m. 1:50 p.m. (next day)

The plane will have three classes with a total of 293 seats.

  • Business Class (48 seats)
  • Premium Economy (21 seats)
  • Economy Class (224)

Yes, Lufthansa’s famous and well-loved First Class cabin is missing. I am excited about this new route and probably will try it out during the one or other occasion.

I am excited about the inaugural flight in summer next year and hope to be there to cover the event. Remember when Lufthansa flew it’s first A380 to San Francisco?

Is this new route interesting to you guys?
