Twice a week to sunny beach

Ryanair started their new route from Memmingen to Burgas

Why not spending Easter at the black sea in Bulgaria? That was the mindset of 188 passengers who took the first flight from Memmingen to Burgas this morning (Tuesday 27th of March). With a full airplane did Ryanair launch the new route to the Bulgarian vacation spot, the second summer destination in Bulgaria, following Varna, with a rising number of guests.

Burgas, the fourth largest city in Bulgaria, is located in a bay of the black sea, surrounded by national parks. The so-called sunny beach is a popular destination for families and became an inexpensive alternative to the Mediterranean Sea in the last few years. At the ten kilometer long promenade you can find many hotels, apartments, bars and restaurants.

“We are certain that Burgas will be a highly demanded destination, as Varna has been very popular as well.” said airport sales director Marcel Schütz, when welcoming the crew of the maiden flight. It is a well-known tradition that the first crew receives a sweet surprise. The fact that the first flight is almost fully booked shows, that the new routes is a perfect addition the Airport Memmingens offer.

The flights will leave Memmingen twice a week, Tuesday and Saturday at 12:55 am and in return from Burgas at 11:10 am.

The next sunny premiere will be on May 8th, when Ryanair takes off to Zadar, Croatia for the first time.
