The balance sheet of the past financial year 2017 lists the record value of 1,179,875 passengers. This corresponds to an increase of 18.37 percent over the previous year. A total of 21 airlines flew Memmingen in scheduled and charter operations, serving 60 destinations in Europe, Africa and Asia.

In the past year not only the 10th anniversary of civil aviation at Memmingen Airport was celebrated, in November Airport CEO Ralf Schmid also welcomed the millionth passenger of the year 2017. The airport not only plays an ever-increasing role among passengers, it is also an important part of the route network for many airlines. Ryanair, for example, declared last year the airport to one of their base and stationed a plane on-site, which not only meant six new routes but also gave the region 35 additional jobs. Of the 21 airlines that flew to Memmingen in 2017, six did regular scheduled flights. The others were charters for tour operators and companies of the region. Ryanair, Wizzair and the Russian Pobeda are the top customers of the airport. They regularly served 35 destinations in Europe, Africa and Asia. The spectrum ranges from Tenerife in the west to the Georgian Kutaisi and Moscow in the east, from northern Stockholm to Fez in Morocco. In total, 60 destinations were served last year. This resulted in a total of 20,620 flight movements, an increase of 7.8 percent compared to the previous year (19,122). At the top of the list was London Stansted, followed by Sofia, Moscow, Porto and Kiev. August 22nd, with 5,708 passengers, marked the day with the most passengers in its Memmingen airport history so far. September was the top month of the year with 124,481 passengers, closely followed by October with 124,126 passengers.
