More and more winter sports fans are discovering the airport.
“Anyone who arrives with us, has on many days the nearby mountains already in view,” explains airport managing director Ralf Schmid. The winter sports centers in the Allgäu, in Tyrol and Vorarlberg as well as in Switzerland are only a stone’s throw away from Memmingen, so many skiers can take advantage of the inexpensive nonstop flights to Memmingen to land quickly in the snow. For years, the flights from Kiev and Moscow as well as the machines from London and Dublin have been heavily frequented by ski vacationers during the winter months. Thanks to the Stockholm-Memmingen connection, more and more Swedish skiers, who are not spoiled at home with a large number of large ski areas, reach alpine regions. The new connection to Tel Aviv not only brings tourists to the Holy Land, but also enthusiasts of winter sports enthusiasts and Europeans living there to the ski slopes of Oberstdorf, Ischgl and St. Anton. The equally new Memmingen-Edinburgh route gives ski-friendly Scots new momentum.
Ski shuttle to Tyrol
In order to keep the transfer times in the preferred winter sports centers as short as possible, the Allgäu Airport Express offers a new service this winter: From 22 December to 29 March, a ski shuttle operates between Memmingen Airport and Tyrol every Saturday. Matched to the arrival times of the machines from Kiev, Moscow and London, he brings the ski tourists to Sölden in the Ötztal, to Ischgl and St. Anton and later back to the airport again. Each customer is driven to his hotel and picked up there again.
