Memmingen Airport continues its success story and announces a new passenger record for the past year: 1,492,553 passengers decided in favor of Bavaria’s third commercial airport in 2018, an increase of 26.5 percent. In 2019 the responsible expect double-digit growth.
A total of seven airlines flew Memmingen in scheduled and charter operations, serving 50 destinations in Europe, Africa and Asia. “With this success, we are reaping the fruits of successful and hard work,” emphasizes Airport Managing Director Ralf Schmid. “Memmingen Airport is a continuation success story,” he explains at the presentation of the latest figures. According to Schmid, the airlines, who continued to expand their offer in Memmingen last year, also made a major contribution to the success. Almost every new destination is immediately enjoying great popularity.
A renewed confirmation of the Memminger successful course delivered recently the airline Ryanair. After declaring the airport a base in 2017 and stationing an aircraft on-site, Ryanair will base a second aircraft in Memmingen at the end of March. It will help to expand existing routes and establish new ones.
Memmingen Airport expects 1.65 million passengers for the current year. This is equivalent to further growth of around ten percent compared to 2018. The plus would have been about 65,000 passengers larger, it the widening of the runway in September would not require a two-week closure of the airport.
