Summer begins next Sunday

New flight schedule with new destinations and even more service for passengersAccording to the calendar, spring has only just begun, but summer will already be getting under way at Memmingen Airport from next Sunday (27 March). The summer flight schedule, which comes into effect on this day, means that a shopping spree for a bikini, swimming trunks and sun oil is now a must. After all, sea, beach and sunshine are all to be had, four new destinations, a new airline partner and more service for passengers on departure.Memmingen Airport currently boasts a total of 54 destinations on offer this summer. The wide-ranging network route extends from Alghero in Sardinia to Zadar on the Croatian Adriatic coast. Ryanair is also in the mix, offering exciting new spots for fans of the Mediterranean lifestyle: Pisa and Pescara in Italy and Santiago de Compostela in Spain. As before, many routes will take you to well-known holiday destinations around the Mediterranean and beyond. Greece is another great place to visit with Thessaloniki and the islands of Rhodes and Crete. While Ryanair flies to Chania on Crete, the airline Corendon offers Heraklion as a destination. Corendon is also welcoming its guests with flights this summer in Antalya in Turkey and Hurghada in Egypt. Sicily is also on offer twice. Ryanair will take you to Palermo, Wizz Air to Catania. Wizz Air will, in traditional style, be covering Eastern Europe again this summer with numerous routes. Kukes in northern Albania is a new addition.This summer, Eurowings will be joining the group of airline partners that will be relying on Memmingen Airport for the first time. The airline, which belongs to the Lufthansa Group, will connect Memmingen with Mallorca three times a week from May. This means that the airport has a total of 13 Mallorca flights per week this summer, as Ryanair also flies to the Balearic island several times a day in some cases. The weekly flight from Memmingen to Calvi on Corsica, which the tour operator – Rhomberg – will be offering its guests from 29 May, also promises to make a trip to these sun-drenched shores just a stone’s throw away. Globalis, the specialist for guided adventure tours, is back in Memmingen, organising three trips to the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey in cooperation with the airline, Blue Islands.New service: Self Bag Drop“After two years of a pandemic, there is a strong desire for holidays and relaxation, despite all the current crises,” reports Airport Managing Director Ralf Schmid. “The airlines have already reacted to this development and expanded their services.” This summer, Ryanair will be significantly increasing the number of flights to Zadar, Brindisi and Girona near Barcelona in Spain. Airport managers have introduced a new service to ensure a carefree start to your holiday: for all Wizzair (and Ryanair passengers in the near future) who have already checked in online and have a boarding pass, there is now the option of “Self Bag Drop” in the terminal. You can simply drop off your baggage here and don’t have to queue at the check-in counter. This saves time – but in general, passengers should leave enough time, especially during the holiday season.  “Our check-in counters open at least two hours before departure,” explains Ralf Schmid.  He has another tip for anyone travelling by car: “Book the parking space of your choice online in advance.” Otherwise, during the high season, it could happen that the car park of your choice is already full up.
