S-Bahn from Airport to Hbf

I notice there are two S-Bahn lines between the Airport and the Hbf. Is one route quicker than the other or do they both take similar timings?

At Hbf it's the same. Certainly don't wait, just take whichever is first to leave airport.

S1 from Hbf to Airport stops on the way (shortly before airport) and some cars continue on to the Airport, not others. Announcement of such was in my experience ONLY "auf Deutsch."

Don't know about other direction... Each S-Bahn (s1, s8) leaves about every 20 minutes....

Correct. Watch signs on station platforms if using S1. Front part of train TO airport goes to Freising. Train splits at Neufahrn. In my experience this is announced in English on train and also at major stations in town. Rear part goes to airport with no changing.

S8 goes straight through.

Something to take care of when traveling from the Hbf to the airport on the S1. But as OP wants to travel from the airport to the Hbf nothing to worry about. Every S-Bahn train departing at the airport will go to the Hbf. Travel times are nearly identical.

I will be making a journey in the other direction later in the week.

From the S1 timetable here: …mvv-muenchen.de/mvv/…WEB4__00002f23_TP.pdf it looks like the trains that depart Hbf at 5 past the hour and 25 past the hour split at Neufahrn. It also shows the Freising service leaving Neufahrn a minute before the Flughafen service. Does that mean you just need to board the rear train if there are two joined up if you want to go to the Airport?

The electronic destination signs on each train part will show where the respective part goes to, so just board the part indicating that it goes to the airport.
