After seven months it’s certain: 2019 will be also a record year – 1,600 flights during the summer holidays
Before the end of July, the airport already records the millionth passenger. “We’ve never reached this magic limit that fast,” says airport manager Ralf Schmid. “The climb continues and the response is huge.” Last year 1,492,553 passengers flew to and from Memmingen. This corresponded to an increase of 26.5 percent compared with the previous year. This year 1.65 million passengers are expected – although the airport will be closed in September for two weeks because of expansion work.
During the summer holidays 280,000 passengers are expected. Compared to the previous year’s period, a plus of 26 percent. Memmingen Airport offers during that time 1,600 flights to 46 destinations in Europe, Asia and North Africa.
