Airport Facts

Munich International Airport (IATA: MUC, ICAO: EDDM), officially named Franz Josef Strauss International Airport (German: Flughafen München-Franz-Josef-Strauß) is located 28 km northeast of Munich, Germany, and is a hub for Lufthansa and Star Alliance partner airlines. The airport lies in portions of four municipalities: Freising, Oberding (location of the terminals), Hallbergmoos and Marzling. The jurisdiction for the airport is at the local Court of Erding (Amtsgericht Erding).

History
It began operations in 1992, replacing the former international Airport in München-Riem. When its construction was started in 1980 a village named Franzheim had to be demolished, its 500 inhabitants having been resettled in other places in the area.

As Lufthansa's home base at Frankfurt International Airport is heavily saturated with traffic and has capacity limits, cities with large frequencies are served through Munich Franz Josef Strauss airport as well as Frankfurt International. The airport was named after Franz Josef Strauss, a post World War II German conservative politician who was a member of the Nazi party and a Officer in the Wehrmacht during the war, and who, later on, played an important role in German politics, then representing democratic, albeit strongly conservative values and "Bavaria as such". Strauss had been prime minister in Bavaria (the federal state where the airport is located) for a long time; under his government, the airport had been planned. Strauss, having been a private pilot himself, was said to have a particular interest in the aviation industry and infrastructure.

Naming the airport by its full name is quite uncommon, even the airport authority is only named "Flughafen München Gesellschaft". In the Munich area, most people prefer the term "Flughafen München" (Munich Airport), sometimes "Flughafen München II" or simply MUC.

In June 2003, Terminal 2 was finished, housing Star Alliance partners exclusively.
