The service will commence on April 8, with one-way fares available to book online from £99.
“As part of our ongoing strategy to link key business hubs throughout Europe, it was a natural choice to connect the West Yorkshire region via the Leeds Bradford hub to Germany’s third largest city,” says flybmi’s Managing Director, Jochen Schnadt.
“We believe that this route will be popular with business and leisure travellers alike who will benefit from flybmi’s fast and efficient service and, in time, we hope to expand our operations to include additional services from Leeds Bradford.”
The airline’s fully inclusive fares include 23kg of hold luggage, allocated leather seating, 40-minute check-in and complimentary in-flight drinks and snacks as standard.
“We know this is a route that has long been desired by the people of this region for some time. Munich is not only a great place to visit, but we also believe that due to the onward destinations available via the airport’s hub connectivity, this will help boost the region’s business and trade links, as well as support inbound tourism,” says David Laws, Chief Executive at Leeds Bradford Airport.
The flight will depart Leeds at 13:50 Monday to Friday, with Saturday departures at 13:55. Sunday departures are at 14:05 and will change to 19:00 from June 9 onwards.
Passengers will be able to connect at Munich with services from flybmi’s partner Lufthansa.
