Memmingen Airport starts its winter timetable with a colorful mix and new destinations in Jordan and Portugal
The new cure against depression in fall and the cold winter offers Memmingen Airport with its new winter timetable, which will be effective from Sunday, 27 October 2019. For the first time during the cold season, sunny destinations like Jordan and Egypt are on the schedule. Furthermore the Portuguese capital Lisbon, which promises mild temperatures, will be operated from 31 October 2019 twice a week.
The route network from Memmingen increases continuous over the borders of Europe. With Amman, the capital of Jordan, which Ryanair operates twice a week, another interesting destination is added. After Faro and Porto, Lisbon is the third direct connection to Portugal. ”Together with our Spanish destinations the route network on the Iberian Peninsula is getting more attractive and gives opportunities for individual travel combinations”, explains Aviation Director Marcel Schütz.
Sun, beach and blue sky promises the destination Hurghada in Egypt. Nonstop flights are operated from 1 November 2019 by travel organization FTI.
Thousands of English winter tourists are going to use Memmingen Airport as an important hub for their skiing vacation in the mountains. Every Saturday planes from the Airline TUI Airways (UK) are coming from London Gatwick and Bristol on behalf of Crystal Ski Holidays to land and depart on the highest airport in Germany. Also the amount of ski tourists from Moscow, Kiev, London and Dublin are traditionally high.
As usual some summer destinations are taking a break in winter. On long term we had to say goodbye to two destinations: Ryanair will no longer operate Warsaw and Fes from Memmingen anymore. “This has also something to do with the limited capacity from Ryanair”, explains Marcel Schütz. “Therefore Lisbon and Amman will stay during the summer.” The Airline, traditionally a customer from Boeing, is also affected of the turbulences around the B737 MAX and can’t expand their fleet.
