Eurowings unveils Munich air link for Edinburgh
A new direct service between Edinburgh and Munich has been unveiled as the airport reveals it is on course to handle 12 million passengers this year.
Edinburgh Airport chief executive Gordon Dewar said the new five times weekly service operated by Eurowings is “further confirmation of Edinburgh Airport’s position as a leader for connectivity between Scotland and the continent for both business and leisure passengers.”
Munich was Edinburgh’s first twin city in 1954 and this new link reinforces and renews business and cultural ties between Bavaria and Scotland.
Councillor Gavin Barrie, economy convener at Edinburgh Council, said the service was”a great boost to the city’s economy”
Malcolm Roughead, chief executive of VisitScotland, added: “VisitScotland plays a very important role in partnering airlines on innovative marketing programmes, helping to bring new and extended routes to Scotland’s network.”
