The Franz-Joseph-Strauss Airport in Munich, Germany, is rated as the only 5-star airport in Europe. In 2017, 44.6 million passengers chose Munich as their destination for business, pleasure, or simply as a transit hub to reach their final destination. With an average of 1,100 daily flights to take care of, the Munich Airport is like a giant machine with several hearts that have to beat in the same rhythm to ensure everything runs smoothly.
How does the Munich Airport cope with an average of 120,000 passengers every day? How is the endless flow of people and airplanes directed to move as seamlessly as possible under the watchful eyes of the 1,200 federal police and 400 customs officers guarding the German border?

It offers viewers an exclusive glimpse into the operational units that are usually restricted from public eyes. The documentary highlights the gears and sprockets making Munich run efficiently and flawlessly.
