Internal German and international air service to Munich is provided by one of the largest airports in the country – the Airport named after Franz Josef Strauss, who was the prime minister of the Federal State of Bavaria. The new airport was built instead of the Munich-Riem Airport, which did not possess the necessary technical capabilities to service the growing passenger traffic. In fairness, it should be noted that the airport is not located in the city, but more than 25 kilometres to the north of Munich on the site of the destroyed village Frantshaym, whose inhabitants were relocated due to the construction of the new Munich airport. But the developed transportation network offsets such a distant location of the airport from the Bavarian capital. The airport is connected with the city by regular railway and bus service. You can get to and from the city by taxi, but the cost will be more expensive than using public transport. In Munich's Franz Josef Strauss Airport are two runways, two terminals and an automated baggage handling system that together with high quality passenger service makes Munich International Airport one of the best in Germany.
