Lufthansa announced that it has begun what it refers to as expedited security screening for certain flights that depart from Munich at certain times of the day.

Specifically, the new program called ‘Smart Depart’ creates an expedited security process for flights departing Munich for Berlin, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, and Frankfurt  during peak travel times.   The nature of this program allows the gates for these flights to be located closer to the security check points in Munich’s Terminal 2 and dedicated check points will only process passengers flying to the cities listed above.

The program will be available on weekdays only, between 6a and 8:30a, and between 4p and 6:30p.

To locate these special checkpoints, look for the ‘Smart Depart Fast Lane’ signage when approaching security.
