It is also a confirmation of the hard work that our team did over the past 10 years as well as a reward for the courage of our founding partners. Furthermore, it is an important sign of trust towards those in charge at Memmingen Airport and our local politicians. Our partner is expecting a quick development of the airport and trusts the involved political parties that actions will follow their promises and that they will support the planned construction.
