Munich Airport began operating in 1992 utilising one terminal split into five different designations. In 2003 the expansion of the facility to incorporate a second terminal doubled the passenger capacity of the airport. The growth of the operations led to the establishment of the secondary aviation hub for Lufthansa within Munich Airport.
