Munich,Bonn - Lufthansa customers flying out of Munich will soon enjoy direct bus services to the airport from seven cities in Bavaria and three cities in Austria. Beginning December 15, 2015, Postbus will be ferrying Lufthansa passengers to Munich Airport from the comfort and convenience of their hometowns - up to eight times a day with a total of more than 80 daily connections. Direct services will begin December 15 from Ulm, Augsburg, Passau, Regensburg, Nuremberg and Bamberg, with additional connections from/to Salzburg, Rosenheim/Raubling, Innsbruck and Wörgl starting February 12, 2016. The partnership brings a number of benefits to Lufthansa customers: Postbus travel can be booked via the Lufthansa reservations system, connections are scheduled to coincide with timetabled Lufthansa flight departures and arrivals at Munich Airport, and there's even the chance to earn miles. Tickets can be booked effective immediately via the Postbus (www.postbus.deundefined) and Lufthansa (www.LH.comundefined) websites or through travel agencies.

"The Postbus-Lufthansa partnership makes it easier for Postbus customers and air travelers to get to Germany's second largest airport," says Joachim Wessels, CEO of Deutsche Post Mobility GmbH. "This service is in direct response to the needs of passengers, who place great value on being able to get from their home cities to their plane in both safety and comfort."

"Being able to travel to and from their home cities with Postbus guarantees our passengers a relaxed travel experience from the very start," adds Thomas Klühr, Member of Lufthansa German Airlines Board, Finance & Hub Munich. "And the fact that they can travel with just one single ticket makes the experience much more simple and convenient."

Here's how it works: Flights are booked starting at the Postbus point of departure (for example: Ulm - New York). Lufthansa boarding passes can be accessed online, downloaded and printed as early as 23 hours before the flight is scheduled to depart, and then function as the passenger's Postbus ticket. Upon arrival at the airport, customers can check their baggage directly at Terminal 2. In the event of unexpected delays, passengers who have booked their Postbus travel through Lufthansa will automatically be booked on the next flight to their destination.
