Memmingen Airport is starting the new winter season with a record, which begins with the flight schedule change at the end of October 2021. Because never before in the history of southern Germany’s largest low-cost airport have there been so many destinations during the cold season. A total of 44 flight connections are available.
The list, which ranges from A for Amman to Z for Zagreb, has been growning in recent weeks. “It´s the beginning of a new era after Corona”, says Managing Director Ralf Schmid and sums up the general mood among passengers and airlines. “In the last few weeks we already felt that there was a lot of catching up to do in terms of travel, which we can counter with an attractive offer this winter.”
Ryanair is starting the winter with six premieres, including Billund in Denmark, Lappeenranta in Finland and the Latvian capital Riga to the flight schedule. With Paphos on Cyprus, Lamezia Terme in Calabria and Gran Canaria, the airline is making new, sunny offers for those who want to escape grim weather and blowing snow. With Tenerife, which is also on Ryanair’s flight schedule, and Fuerteventura, which will be newly served by the airline Corendon, all three Canary Islands can now be reached non-stop from Memmingen. The Egyptian city of Hurghada, which Corendon serves from Memmingen, also promises plenty of sun.
New to Plovdiv
Memmingen Airport has added another destination to its traditionally excellent Eastern European offer: On November 9th, Wizz Air will launch a new flight connection from Memmingen to Plovdiv, the second largest city in Bulgaria and the location of numerous branches of German companies. After a break due to Corona, the airline Pobeda has also resumed its flights from Memmingen to Moscow.
“With this record number of travel destinations, we are once again a very attractive hub for passengers from all over Europe this winter,” explains Managing Director Ralf Schmid. Here, seaside vacationers from southern Germany, Austria and Switzerland meet ski tourists from Denmark, Finland, Great Britain, Ukraine and Russia, who travel via Memmingen to the winter sports resorts of the Allgäu, Upper Bavaria and the neighboring Alpine regions. Added to this is the large number of relatives, friends and commuters who will make intensive use of Memmingen Airport, especially over the Christmas holidays. There, they can expect a bit more comfort. This is because the new baggage hall with arrival area makes flying to Memmingen even more attractive.
Those who want to plan for the long term can do this too. Numerous destinations in the summer flight schedule, which comes into effect on March 27, 2022, can already be booked.
