New connection at Munich Airport: The UK airline Flybe is now departing daily from Munich to Southampton at 8:15 pm. The Southampton–Munich flight takes off at 4:15 pm.
Southampton has 250,000 inhabitants and is a two-hour drive from London. It is best known for its port, which is the starting point for cruise ships sailing to destinations all over the world. But it’s also the perfect home base for exploring the south coast of England. Architecture lovers can take an excursion to nearby Winchester to see Europe’s second-longest cathedral. From the port town of Lymington, ferries make the short crossing to the picturesque Isle of Wight.
To celebrate the inaugural flight to Southampton, the Flybe crew were presented with traditional gingerbread hearts by Munich Airport’s airline liaison manager Martin Laubenthal (right).
