Delta Air Lines adds Munich to global route map, with a new daily connection to Detroit


The aircraft of Delta Airlines have been a familiar sight at Munich Airport since the new airport location opened in 1992. The US carrier departs daily from Munich to Atlanta, its home base that happens to be the world’s biggest airport.

Now it is expanding its route map: Starting today there is a new connection between Munich and Metropolitan Wayne County Airport in Detroit. A 245-seat Boeing 767-400ER will depart daily at 10:15 am for Michigan’s largest city, where passengers can choose from among 113 connections to major cities in the USA.

Munich Airport’s CEO Dr. Michael Kerkloh (9th from right) attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the maiden flight in person to wish the Delta crew many happy landings. Kerkloh’s supporting cast at the ceremony included Captain Michael Fueyo, flight attendant Marsha Devaney and Roland Wolf, Delta’s station manager at Munich Airport (10th, 8th and 6th from right, respectively).
