Skifans and Beach enthusiasts love Memmingen

Memmingen Airport starts its winter timetable with a colorful mix and new destinations in Jordan and Portugal

The new cure against depression in fall and the cold winter offers Memmingen Airport with its new winter timetable, which will be effective from Sunday, 27 October 2019. For the first time during the cold season, sunny destinations like Jordan and Egypt are on the schedule. Furthermore the Portuguese capital Lisbon, which promises mild temperatures, will be operated from 31 October 2019 twice a week.

The route network from Memmingen increases continuous over the borders of Europe. With Amman, the capital of Jordan, which Ryanair operates twice a week, another interesting destination is added. After Faro and Porto, Lisbon is the third direct connection to Portugal. ”Together with our Spanish destinations the route network on the Iberian Peninsula is getting more attractive and gives opportunities for individual travel combinations”, explains Aviation Director Marcel Schütz.

Sun, beach and blue sky promises the destination Hurghada in Egypt. Nonstop flights are operated from 1 November 2019 by travel organization FTI.

Thousands of English winter tourists are going to use Memmingen Airport as an important hub for their skiing vacation in the mountains. Every Saturday planes from the Airline TUI Airways (UK) are coming from London Gatwick and Bristol on behalf of Crystal Ski Holidays to land and depart on the highest airport in Germany. Also the amount of ski tourists from Moscow, Kiev, London and Dublin are traditionally high.

As usual some summer destinations are taking a break in winter.  On long term we had to say goodbye to two destinations: Ryanair will no longer operate Warsaw and Fes from Memmingen anymore. “This has also something to do with the limited capacity from Ryanair”, explains Marcel Schütz. “Therefore Lisbon and Amman will stay during the summer.” The Airline, traditionally a customer from Boeing, is also affected of the turbulences around the B737 MAX and can’t expand their fleet.

News: Rush Hour without passengers

At Memmingen Airport the preparations for the widening are running on full speed.

At the airport is still normal business. But during the busy holidays, the airport is preparing for an unusual event. From the 17 until the 30 of September the aircraft traffic rests. But during that time, it’s going to get busy on the runway. Instead of landings from jets, machines and trucks are going to be there.

For month Bavarians third Airport records visitors during the night, who are digging shafts and laying cables along the runway. “We are on track”, reports Airport CEO Ralf Schmid. “Nevertheless, we are reaching the highlight, for what we are preparing with our involved partners for a few months.” Because the 2.981 meter long and 30 meters wide runway, still from the military use, doesn’t comply with the International and European standards, the runway is going to be widened up to 45 meters. Therefore approx.. 2.700 cubic meter of cement is used. In total the asphalt is going to be renewed for 165.000 m2. This corresponds to 23 soccer fields. For that approx. 57.000 tons of asphalt is used. Being able to provide a concreted work area, where no mistakes are allowed, a closure was the best idea. “It is not going to be easy”, so Ralf Schmid, “but with our involved partners, we are convinced that we can handle it.” During the construction work, more traffic around Memmingen, Hawangen and Ungerhausen will be expected. “We are apologizing for any inconveniences. We are trying to keep the burden as low as possible. Thank you for your understanding.”, so Airport CEO Schmid.

No flights between the 17 and the 30 of September

What does this mean for passengers? “Ryanair cancelled all their flights from and to Memmingen from the 17 till the 30 of September”, reports Head of Marketing Marina Siladji. Wizz Air and a few charter flights are going to operate from other airports. “Who has booked a flight in that period”, so Marina Siladji”, should check the information on their tickets and should contact the airline by any misunderstandings.”
While the construction work is going on, the terminal is still open. The information desk and the parking office will be open from 9 am to 6 pm.
For these two weeks the Allgäu Airport Express, Flixbus and the public transportation from the railway station to Memmingen Airport are not operating. In the public area of the terminal, Coffee Fellows is open daily with a smaller assortment; all the other bars and coffees are closed during that time. The Airlounge at the South of the airport area is going to be opened like usually. The TUI travel agency is open from 9 am till 6 pm. The car rental companies Europcar and Hertz are closed, Sixt is open.

Besides the renovation and the widening of the runway, the renewing of the landing system, the baggage hall and the aprons are going to be expanded and a rainwater retention basin is built. The completion of all constructions is expected in 2021.
