Memmingen Airport gets EASA-Certificate

Safe is even safer: Now it’s official that Memmingen Airport fulfills all EU-legal requirements. After an extensive certification process the government of Upper Bavaria issued the EASA-Certificate to the Airport.

“Safety enjoys absolute priority”, commented Ralf Schmid, CEO of the Flughafen Memmingen GmbH. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has set itself the task of adding further strict requirements to national and international safety standards to achieve a uniformly high level throughout Europe.
The airport Memmingen was audited by the National Aviation Authority South Bavaria/government of Upper Bavaria as part of an extensive certification process. Up to 3.500 criteria from the areas of infrastructure, business, and organization were examined. With this report the experts confirm that the third civil airport in Bavaria optimized its already high security level. “This is another confirmation of the outstanding work our teams have been doing for years”, explained the head of the airport Ralf Schmid. “It also shows us what parts are important for the planned extension.” Last but not least the cooperation between the airport and the authority was intensified.

Joy in the award of certificates. The EASA-certificate verifies the high security level at Airport Memmingen.
