Lufthansa has announced that it is launching a new service from Munich to Mexico City next summer – its first between the Bavarian capital and Central America. The new route will be operated from 26 March 2012 by an Airbus A340-600. From that date, Mexico City will be served five times a week from Munich, supplementing the daily flights already operated by Lufthansa from Frankfurt.
In economic terms in particular, the airline said, Mexico is gaining in importance for the Bavarian market. Mexico City has a population of 30 million, making it one of world’s largest metropolitan areas.
