With the launch of this new route, the company is increasing its direct flights from Spain to Germany offering excellent connection possibilities with its domestic network and intercontinental destinations via the Star Alliance network.

Madrid, February 21, 2008.- From the 30th of March and throughout the summer season, Spanair will begin operations on the Madrid-Munich route with one daily return flight linking the Spanish Capital to this important European business city. With this new route Spanair increases the existing flights between Spain and the Bavarian Capital, and now offers six daily flights to Munich from Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao and Valencia.

Thanks to Spanair's extensive domestic flight schedule, passengers that fly on the route linking the city of Munich to Madrid can benefit from excellent daily connections in both directions to and from the cities of Alicante, Jerez, Malaga and Palma de Majorca.

Moreover, Spanair offer a very good daily flight connection schedule from Munich to the Spanish destinations of Girona, Granada, San Sebastian, La Coruña and North Tenerife, via Madrid.

Likewise, the new route will ensure excellent connections to destinations within Germany, Italy and Eastern Europe, on flights operated by Lufthansa and the Star Alliance member carriers.

With the aim of meeting growing demand from business travellers, Spanair will offer a daily mid-morning flight departure from Madrid at 10:20, in addition to the four daily frequencies offered in code-share with our Star Alliance partner Lufthansa, allowing passengers to connect with 55 different worldwide destinations.

"With the development of the European routes, Spanair is strengthening the growth of its international services and ensuring increased presence in the market between Spain and Germany", states Marcus Hedblom, Spanair's CEO.

"The incorporation of the new route consolidates our position in the German market, where we already operate flights such as Madrid to Frankfurt, as well as Barcelona, Bilbao and Valencia to Munich. We are certain that our service to and from the Bavarian Capital will be a success and that it will contribute to the growth of Spanair at this main airport", he adds.
