Memmingen Airport kicks off the summer season

In the aftermath of Corona, many people are calling for an urgent change of scenery this year! Exploring foreign countries with all your senses or simply lying in the sun under palm trees are the order of the day. Memmingen Airport offers well over 50 options in its new summer flight schedule, which comes into effect next Sunday (26 March). New additions include flights to Malta, Naples, Rome, Valencia, Corfu and Krakow in Poland.For last-minute travellers, Bella Italia is just that little bit closer. Next Sunday, Ryanair will be flying from Memmingen to Naples for the first time. Or would you prefer the capital Rome and the Vatican? Ryanair will again be flying to this destination twice a week from Sunday. You can also travel non-stop to the Italian metropolis with the airline Wizz Air, which will connect Memmingen with the Eternal City from 5 September. If you’re looking to warm up straight away, you can do so for the first time with a non-stop flight from Memmingen to Malta. The sunny island in the Mediterranean, which has long been more than just an insider tip, will be served twice a week by Ryanair from Memmingen from 27 March. Valencia is also celebrating a comeback on the flight schedule from this Monday. A few days later, on Friday, 31 March, there will be another first: Corfu, one of the greenest islands in Greece, will now be connected to Memmingen on Fridays. For those who would rather take in a city trip, the Memmingen flight schedule now includes the new destination Krakow, in addition to other great classics from 28 March. The second largest metropolis in Poland has been awarded the title of UNESCO City of Literature, and was European Capital of Culture in 2000.

“The pent-up demand for travel remains very high,” explains Airport Managing Director, Ralf Schmid. “It will have an even greater impact this summer.” He, therefore, expects demand to be very high. “Our range of 53 destinations is extremely attractive and offers a wide variety of travel options.” The range extends from beach holidays to cultural trips, from visiting friends and relatives to exploring new destinations. The offer has become even more attractive as the frequencies have been increased on some routes due to the high demand, and the airlines are flying daily instead of just weekly. “Our team is well-prepared,” says Schmid, “and is gearing up for a strong season.” There is no doubt that passenger numbers will easily exceed the two million mark this year.

The airport managers are also delighted by the continuing trend that ever more charter and tour operators appreciate and use Memmingen Airport. The travel group TUI is offering a wide range of attractive travel packages from Memmingen to Crete from Whitsun. Greece’s largest airline – Aegean Airlines – will be flying non-stop to Heraklion every Tuesday from 30 May and every Thursday from 8 June. During the Whitsun holidays, TUI and Tailwind Airlines will also be flying to Antalya in Turkey. The Vorarlberg-based Corsica expert Rhomberg has been focussing on Memmingen for years. From 30 April, its charter will fly non-stop to Calvi every Sunday. Eurowings will begin its flights to Mallorca on 1 April.

Airport officials point out that it is advisable to book parking spaces online in advance and arrive in good time, especially during holiday periods. Local public transport connections have also been expanded. The Airport City Shuttle now runs between Memmingen railway station and the terminal every half hour from 4.25 in the morning to 11.25 at night.
