Since 2015 Munich Airport has also been certified with the first European "5 Star Airport" rating due to its great concept, structure and services.

Another award for 2019 is the title "World's Third Best Airport Terminal" for Terminal 2 at Munich Airport. The outstanding results achieved by Terminal 2 in the World Airports Awards are rooted in a number of areas. Along with impressive scores in the passenger experience and overall comfort categories, the terminal achieved top ratings for the entertainment options and the quiet zones where guests can relax, read or work.

In addition, the midfield satellite terminal that opened in 2016, enhances the Terminal 2 in terms of quality as well as capacity: As one of the world's most advanced airport buildings, the satellite offers passengers a wide range of shopping and dining options. The total retail and dining space in Terminal 2 has nearly doubled with the addition of 7,000 square meters of new restaurants, cafés and stores.
