Memmingen Airport as a hub for Ukraine refugees

Wizz Air offers free flights from Romania

Memmingen Airport is preparing to become a hub for Ukrainian refugees. This is because the airline Wizz Air today held out the prospect of 100,000 free tickets for Ukrainians who want to fly out via neighbouring countries. There are currently seven routes between Romania and Memmingen that could be used in this way.

“We will do our utmost to support the offer of our airline partner to provide 100,000 tickets free of charge to Ukrainian refugees,” explains Airport Managing Director Ralf Schmid. Flights from Suceava and Iaşi in particular, with their proximity to the Ukrainian border, are suitable for this. Memmingen Airport could become a hub in southern Germany. On the one hand, refugees can use the seven Romanian routes to Memmingen. On the other hand, the airline also offers special fares for 29.99 euros to those affected who want to travel from Memmingen to another European destination with Wizz Air.

Ukrainian refugees can book these flights at, Wizz Air announced. The 100,000 free seats and the special fares will be available throughout March. Travellers must provide their Ukrainian passport or ID card when booking and present it later at check-in. The city of Memmingen has set up a crisis team to support Ukrainian refugees on site. It also coordinates the aid for the Ukrainian twin city of Chernihiv.
