The Irish airline Ryanair will station a second aircraft in Memmingen at the beginning of the summer timetable 2019.
Airport manager Ralf Schmid, who recently welcomed the ten-millionth passenger in the now more than eleven-year history of Bavaria’s third commercial airport, was happy about “an early Christmas present”. “This is also a confirmation of our trusting cooperation,” he explained. “Ryanair can count on us – and we can rely on Ryanair.”
With Memmingen, the airline opened its tenth base in Germany in September last year and established six new routes in the winter of 18/19, which provided a further growth spurt at the airport. Now the second machine should also help to expand existing routes. So you can fly six times a week to Palma de Mallorca next summer. On top of that, it ensures more pleasant flight times, as many destinations are now served first from Memmingen and passengers can enjoy more time on the spot. It is also clear that the number of locally based Ryanair employees will almost double from 35 so far.
Ryanair offers Marrakech, Lviv, Brindisi, Banja Luka and Edinburgh, Wizz Air flies from Memmingen for the first time to Pristina in Kosovo and Chişinău, the capital of Moldova. In addition, the connection Memmingen-Moscow is again five times a week on the flight plan of the Russian airline Pobeda.
