From March 2025, Discover Airlines will station two Airbus A330s in Munich, opening a new long-haul base. Discover Airlines (a Lufthansa Group company) is already the largest leisure airline operator at this hub with five short-haul aircraft that fly around 70 times a week to 23 holiday destinations.

On March 3, 2025, Discover Airlines will launch its long-haul program. For the first time, there will be three direct flights per week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) from Munich to Orlando. From April 1, Namibia's capital Windhoek will also be served three times a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday). From April 12, there will be up to five weekly flights (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday) between Munich and Calgary in Canada. These destinations will be served all year round. Discover Airlines will thus be the only airline to offer direct connections from Munich to these popular destinations.

"Expanding our presence in Munich is an important milestone for us," explains Bernd Bauer, CEO of Discover Airlines. "We are consistently pursuing our goal of expanding Lufthansa's offering at the two major German hubs with varied, attractive vacation options and offering travelers even more choice. We are achieving this with our three new long-haul destinations that have never been accessible by direct flight from Munich before or were last accessible many years ago. Our increased commitment is a clear commitment by the Lufthansa Group to Munich as an aviation location and the entire region."
