Expansion according to plan

For weeks, Memmingen Airport has had nocturnal visitors digging and laying cables in the ground. A first interim report showed: work is going according to plan.

“Our construction companies and our employees are doing a great job,” airport managing director Ralf Schmid draws a first, pleasing interim result. The schedule is kept exactly; sometimes even ahead. Up to now, seven kilometres of empty pipe routes have been laid along the runway. Electrical work began with the cable draw-in for the future airport lights. The next step is to expand 125 rainwater infeed shafts and create additional empty pipe routes. Many materials are recycled, worn concrete slabs are crushed and later used as a substructure for new operating paths.

In total, around 100 kilometres of empty pipes with 120 kilometres of lighting cables will be laid. At the heart of the project, the extension of the runway from 30 meters to 45 meters will cover an asphalt surface of 165,000 square meters. The plan is to mill 20,000 tons of asphalt and re-apply 57,000 tons of asphalt. This will happen between the 17th and the 30th of September, when the airport is closed. In addition to the renovation and widening of the runway and the renewal of the land system, the luggage hall will also be expanded, apron areas will be enlarged and a rainwater retention basin built. The completion of all work is expected in 2020.

 

Concrete slabs for operating routes: Great importance is attached to the recycling of the Memmingen airport. This is how these machines crush concrete slabs. The material thus obtained later serves as a foundation for new ways.

New bridge to the Middle East

For the first time from October: from Memmingen to Jordan

Amman, Jordan’s capital is added as a new destination for the winter timetable. From October 29th Ryanair flies non-stop from Memmingen to the capital of the Hashemite kingdom twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

The metropolitan region of Amman has around four million inhabitants. The city itself offers attractive sights like the Archaeological Museum and the Roman Theater, but it can also be the starting point to explore the country. World-famous highlights are Petra, a city in the south which is carved in reddish rock, the desert Wadi Rum and the mountain Nebo. “Jordan is still an insider tip with great potential,” explains Marcel Schütz Sales Manager of Memmingen Airport. Southern Germany thus receives an attractive bridge to the Middle East.
