The Munich Airport has gone through a lot of changes in recent history. The present airport replaced the Munich-Reim Airport in 1992, as this airport could not be expanded due to its inner-city location. The “Franz Josef Strauss” Airport has now become one of the largest hubs in Europe; about 100 airlines connect it to 70 countries around the world. So, it is not surprising that over 38 million passengers passed through Munich Airport in 2012. Therefore, Munich is now the 2nd largest airport in Germany (behind Frankfurt), and the 6th largest in Europe.
The Munich Airport "Franz Josef Strass" is about 30 km from the centre of the city. Airline passengers have many transfer options to choose from when getting to/from the airport. Apart from the airport bus Munich, which frequently travels between the airport and city, there are also many taxis available for transfers. Additionally, the railway network also offers convenient transfers to and from the Munich Airport. Furthermore, there is also the option of hiring a VIP limousine with chauffeur. This comfortable alternative is favoured by many business and leisure travellers; luxury minivans can also be used for larger groups or families. The limousine service Munich offers comfortable and luxurious transfers that are the perfect start to a holiday, or guarantee a certain status required by some business travellers.
