Star Alliance airline Lufthansa is selling cheap tickets to one of its main hubs: Munich. The Bavarian metropolis is one of Germany’s highlights, and from certain European countries, you can get a Lufthansa roundtrip for less than €100! There’s high availability throughout this year’s autumn.
Here are the cities, from which you can fly to Munich at a discounted price:
The flights are usually operated with Airbus A320 aircraft. You’ll get a small snack and something to drink. Luggage, however, costs €50 for the roundtrip.
We expect further shakeups in the airline industry over the following months. Some services might be cancelled, aircraft changed or downgraded. The schedule we describe may very well change.
Search & Book
The fare rules only state a minimum stay requirement of 3 days (or a Saturday or Sunday). We found availability from mid-September until late December/early January. You can find all available dates on Google Flights. You should then book directly on Lufthansa’s website.
Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:
- The Covid-19 Pandemic
During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.
Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
The tickets are issued in booking class K. An Oslo-Munich roundtrip should get you:
