After a long period, Lufthansa is resuming direct flights from Munich to Tirana, from March 30, 2021. There will be two flights per week, on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Munich is one of Germany’s and Europe’s most important airports. Meanwhile, the Munich region is one of the biggest and strongest economic regions in the continent.
Tirana International Airport, while announcing the route, assured its commitment to offer the best passenger service. It is also promising a friendly environment and standards for all airlines operating there.
In the past, Adria Airways operated direct Tirana-Munich flights, as part of the Star Alliance agreement. Slovenia’s flag carrier ceased operations on September 30, 2019.
Despite the good news, Albanians cannot go to Schengen countries, due to COVID-19 restrictions implemented by the member states, including Germany.
Lufthansa CityLine will operate the flights. It is a German airline with its headquarters on the grounds of Munich Airport. Lufthansa CityLine is a subsidiary of Lufthansa and maintains hubs at Frankfurt Airport and Munich Airport, from where it operates a dense domestic and European network as a member of Lufthansa Regional.
The tickets are already on sale on lufthansa.com.
A simple search on the Lufthansa’s website for a return ticket Tirana-Munich-Tirana for March 30-April 6, shows the price of 228.38 euro. It allows hand luggage only, making it a very expensive ticket.
