Taking a taxi from Munich Airport into the city center will be cheaper from Wednesday onwards, since mytaxi und Lufthansa are now offering all passengers a new taxi-sharing service. With mytaximatch, passengers and travelers can share a taxi into the city center of Munich with savings of up to 50 percent. Depending on the route and the traffic, the trip would normally cost up to EUR 90 or more. The departure point for joint mytaximatch tours is the taxi rank (P31) at Terminal 2.
With their new service at Munich Airport, Lufthansa and mytaxi are offering all passengers an integrated mobility solution that makes the last mile of the journey easier and, above all, cheaper. Initially the new service will be bookable for a three-month test phase. Booking is done with the touch of a finger on the mytaxi app. Before embarking on their journey, customers can choose to the “match option” and enter their destination address. mytaximatch then links up two passengers who have a similar destination and makes it possible for them to travel together. Each passenger may only have a maximum of two pieces of baggage so that the taxi ride isn´t too tight. At the end of each person’s route, the app calculates their individual price. This will never exceed EUR 49 in total, even if no suitable ride-sharer has been found. Even in the case of finding “no match”, passengers still benefit from the price guarantee.
Partnership between two of the branch´s drivers of innovation
The collaboration was initiated by mytaxi and the Lufthansa Innovation Hub (LIH), the central digitalization unit of the Lufthansa Group.
mytaximatch is to be launched at Munich Airport in collaboration with Lufthansa on Wednesday, September 19. Lufthansa customers will receive all the information they need concerning the new service exclusively via the Lufthansa app and will be redirected straight to the mytaxi service. During the three-month test phase, Miles & More will be giving users a credit of 150 Premium Miles per matched journey – an attractive additional offer for all users who are already collecting miles with mytaxi and Miles & More.
