With the MVV to the Airport and back
All the passengers at Munich’s Franz-Josef-Strauß Airport have one thing in common: they want to continue their journey without any hassle until they reach their destination, be it near or far.
The MVV makes sure that all kinds of air passengers – whether they are in a rush, exhausted, nervous, laid-back, large or small – arrive in Munich and its surrounding area as comfortably as possible.
So you’ve arrived. Now what?
From Munich Airport, lines S1 and S8 run to the city centre. They run alternately every 10 minutes, with the S1 going via Munich West and the S8 via Munich East. The trip takes around 35 minutes.
Travelling with the MVV. Which ticket?
You will need to buy a ticket. We recommend the Airport-City Day Ticket, which is available for those travelling alone (single version) and for families or groups (partner version). It is valid for the whole day on all MVV routes and modes of transport throughout the entire Munich network. The ticket is available from the ticket machines in the airport, which also accept credit cards.
NEW - MVV-MobileTicket and Online Ticket available as of 15 December 2013: As of 15 December 2013, you can purchase the Airport-City-Day-Ticket, MVV Day Tickets (entire network) or the CityTourCard (entire network) online or using your smartphone.
Register just once and you’ll be able to use both the MVV MobileTicket and the MVV OnlineTicket. If you prefer to buy your ticket without registration, then you can easily and conveniently purchase the OnlineTicket with your credit card.
Picking up. Taking off. At what time, exactly?
If you are planning to pick up visitors from the airport or need information about your own flight, the special flight information service EFA Flug is here to help. The system is supplied with real-time data from the airport, and can also realistically calculate waiting times and longer routes from one part of the airport to another.
Planning your take-off
To get from Munich to the airport, simply use the Airport-City Day Ticket, which is available at most S-Bahn (urban rail) stations (in the form of the City-Airport Day Ticket). Up to five persons can travel together using the partner version of the ticket.
The Entire Network Day Ticket can be used for the same purpose, and – since it is not automatically validated upon purchase – this ticket can also be bought in advance when you're planning your trip.
Other day tickets are also valid, of course. If you live close to the airport, the Outer District Day Ticket would be a cheaper option.
Car parks by the airport
If you park your car in one of the airport's visitor parking places, you can use your car park ticket to travel to the departure terminal – and back – free of charge. Just present your car park ticket, which counts as a valid public transportation ticket for all persons travelling in the same car to and from the airport.
The car parks P41, P51 and P81 are classified as visitor parking places.
You can use the car park ticket to travel on the following MVV routes:
- S-Bahn (urban rail) lines S1 and S8 between the stations Besucherpark and Flughafen (airport)
- Bus line 635 between the stations Flughafen, Car Park P41 and Flughafen Terminal 1/2 (airport)
