34.6 percent more passenger to the prior year.
Once more Memmingen Airport proofed itself as ideal starting point for a successful vacation. With an overall capacity utilization of 90.3 percent during the Pentecost holidays in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg, 34.6 percent more passengers than in the year 2017 took off to popular beach destinations and city trips.
When in the past year 53.281 flight passengers used the wide offer of destinations around the holidays, the number went up to 71.733 in 2018 – a rise of 34.6 percent. City trips to London, Kiev and Sibiu were just as popular as the sunny destinations Malaga, Tenerife, Palermo and Palma, that had a workload of over 95 percent. The flight plan of Memmingen has also been much enhanced by the new summer routes to the Bulgarian black sea destinations Burgas and Varna, Zadar in Croatia and the Greek capital Athens.
“Our offer is simply right and attracts not only regular guests from southern Germany and the bordering countries.” Say Sales Director Marcel Schütz happily about the rise. “With Hurghada in Egypt, polish Katowice and the currently announced flight to Antalya by Corendon Airlines, we have even more attractive destinations coming up for the summer break and after.”
Besides the attractive offer, low-priced parking and short ways at the airport contributed to the rise of demand.
