About Munich Airport and Munich Airport International

Founded in 1949, Flughafen München GmbH (FMG) operates Munich Airport and is jointly owned by the Free State of Bavaria (51 percent), the Federal Republic of Germany (26 percent) and the city of Munich (23 percent). With 24 subsidiaries and affiliated companies, FMG employs around 9,000 people across the Group. After starting operations at its current location in May 1992, Munich Airport developed into one of the most important air transportation hubs and firmly established itself among Europe’s ten busiest airports. In 2019, it served over 250 destinations worldwide and handled around 417,000 flights with 47.9 million passengers. Bavaria’s gateway to the world was the first airport in Europe to be awarded five stars by the London-based Skytrax Institute.

The wholly-owned subsidiary Munich Airport International (MAI) offers airport management, consulting and training services worldwide. Over the past 30 years MAI has evolved from being the leading ORAT service provider to a global airport operator. Today MAI is a trusted partner for smart money and ambitious airports throughout the world. With four subsidiaries and affiliated companies, MAI employs around 100 highly skilled experts globally and has a proven track record of more than 125 successfully delivered projects across more than 45 countries. MAI provides best practice solutions for the entire airport lifecycle, including bid advisory services for airport concessions, airport masterplan and design, operational readiness and airport transfer (ORAT), efficient and sustainable airport operations, optimization of aviation and non-aviation revenues, tailor-made training programs, as well as integrated airport management. Since early 2019, MAI is responsible for the operation, maintenance and concession management of Terminal A at Newark Liberty International Airport (USA). In addition, Munich Airport and MAI are acting as airport operator for SOF Connect at Sofia Airport (Bulgaria) and for PIA at Palmerola International Airport (Honduras).
