  United Airlines launched daily nonstop service to Munich, Germany on April 24.
Houstonians can now enjoy nonstop air service to the capital of Bavaria, Germany. United Airlines launched its daily flight between Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Munich’s Franz Josef Strauss International Airport (MUC) on April 24, giving travelers connections to 71 other destinations in Europe, India and the Middle East.

“This new flight to Munich is a perfect example of United Airlines’ strong commitment to Houston and their drive to put together the most dynamic route map possible for air passengers throughout the region,” said Mario C. Diaz, City of Houston Aviation Director.

United will operate the service with a Boeing 767-400 aircraft with 242 seats - 39 in United BusinessFirst and 203 in United Economy, including 70 Economy Plus extra-legroom seats.

"We are pleased to give Houston business and leisure travelers direct access to Munich and convenient connections on our partner Lufthansa and its affiliate airlines to 71 cities beyond," said Stephanie Buchanan, United's vice president of the Houston hub. "United's new service to Munich, along with our second daily Houston-Tokyo flight launched in March, underscores Houston's role as a top travel destination and a premier international gateway."

Flight 104 departs Bush Intercontinental daily at 4:10 p.m. and arrives at Munich's Franz Joseph Strauss International Airport at 9:50 a.m. the next day. On the return, flight 105 will depart Munich at 9:30 a.m. and arrive in Houston at 2:20 p.m. the same day.

The new Munich flights complement the daily nonstop service between Houston and Frankfurt that both United and its joint-venture partner Lufthansa offer today.
