German carrier Lufthansa is increasing capacity on some flights between Munich and Debrecen under an agreement reached with BMW Group which is building a plant in the city in the east of Hungary, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Lufthansa VP Johannes Walter said at a press conference in Debrecen on Friday that the airline would use a 215-seat Airbus A321neo for the Munich-Debrecen flight on Mondays and Fridays. Several hundred BMW engineers and innovators are commuting between the two cities, he added.

BMW Manufacturing Hungary head of finance Liv Eske Herrstrom said more than 1,000 people were working in Debrecen preparing for the start of production at the BMW plant next year.

In addition to Mondays and Friday, Lufthansa operates the Munich-Debrecen flight on Wednesdays and Sundays.

BMW laid the cornerstone of its vehicle manufacturing plant in Debrecen in the summer of 2022. Production of the fully electric Neue Klasse is set to start there in 2025.
