Munich Franz Josef Strauss (IATA: MUC, ICAO: EDDM) is the second busiest airport in Germany after Frankfurt Airport, handling 44.6 million passengers in 2017. This also makes it the seventh-busiest airport in Europe. It offers flights to 266 destinations. Munich is a hub for Lufthansa, Lufthansa Regional, Lufthansa Cityline and its Star Alliance partners. Located about 28.5 km (17.7 mi) northeast of the city of Munich, it features two passenger terminals with an additional midfield terminal, two runways as well as cargo facilities. Construction of the airport began in 1980, and it commenced operation on 17 May 1992, replacing the old Munich-Riem Airport and taking over its ICAO and IATA codes.
