Memmingen Airport leaves Corona far behind


More passengers at Whitsun than before the pandemic

Memmingen Airport has put the issue of Corona behind it for the time being. This is evidenced by the expected passenger figures for the upcoming Whitsun vacations. According to the figures, around 100,000 passengers will travel to and from Memmingen during the two vacation weeks, significantly exceeding the figures for the (pre-Corona) year 2019.

“This means we have reached and exceeded pre-crisis levels faster than any other airport in Bavaria and southern Germany,” explains Airport Sales Manager Marcel Schütz. “Our position as the leading low-cost airport in southern Germany has thus been consolidated.” Full house at Whitsun corresponds to around 570 aircraft movements and up to 18 departures per day at Memmingen during the two vacation weeks. Before Corona, they recorded 91,000 passengers and 542 aircraft movements during the same period in 2019. In the previous year, only around 32,000 passengers landed and took off due to the pandemic.

In demand during the Whitsun vacations are all warm-water destinations around the Mediterranean, but also European metropolises such as London and Barcelona, as well as insider tips such as Riga, Pisa and Billund. Destinations in Eastern Europe are in high demand for visits to relatives and friends as well as for vacation trips. Here, a premiere will be celebrated next Friday: the new connection to Kukës in northern Albania will begin operations and will be served twice a week by Wizz Air in the future. Currently, five airlines are serving Memmingen passengers: Ryanair and Wizz Air have the most destinations. They are joined by Eurowings, Corendon and Avanti.

Due to the good booking situation, airport officials advise passengers to plan enough time for their departure at the airport. In addition, travelers should inform themselves in advance about the regulations in their country of destination and fill out any documents that may still be required. It is also advisable to book a parking space at the airport online in advance.

There are good news for those making a late decision: there are still free seats among the 48 current connections, so that a Last-minute Easter vacation is possible.
Relaxing days at the beach or an interesting city stroll as well as visits to relatives and friends are at the top of the list of wishes for the upcoming Easter vacations. “Many have already booked their trips early”, explains Airport Sales Manager Marcel Schütz. “However, there are still routes available for a Last-minute trip to see the Easter Bunny.” Those who want to visit Master Lamp in Italy can visit Coniglietto di Pasqua, as he is known at our southern neighbors, with flights from Memmingen to Pisa, Pescara or Lamezia Terme. Ryanair still offers free seats for nonstop flights to Bella Italia. With other destinations such as Brindisi, Palermo, Catania and Alghero on the island of Sardinia, Memmingen has a very comprehensive extensive Italy offer. Spain also promises plenty of sun. The new connection to Santiago de Compostela in the northwest invites passengers to discover Galicia and to contemplate on the Jakobs-Weg.
Those who prefer the far north should consider Billund as a travel destination. The largest tourist attraction in the danish city is the internationally famous Legoland amusement park. But also the proximity to the North Sea and the Baltic Sea makes the South Jutland region a popular tourist destination.
An impressive city trip promises Riga, the capital of Latvia. Famous for its art nouveau buildings and the well-preserved old town. It also proves to be an ideal starting point for a round trip through the three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Mallorca from May
People who does not want or must travel during the Easter vacations, can choose one of the most popular destinations of the Germans afterwards:
From 3 May it goes non-stop from Memmingen to Mallorca with Eurowings. The trip to the island is possible on Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday. Seats are still available. But thanks to Ryanair, flights are also available before then.
With up to 13 flights per week, Mallorca is one of the top destinations this year from Memmingen.

Two hours before departure

Travelers should inform themselves in advance about the regulations in their destination country and fill out the necessary documents.
