Two premiers in three days

From Memmingen to Amman and Lisbon for the first time

What many theatres can’t handle, Memmingen Airport can: two premiers in only three days. And both are sold out! For the first time this morning the Ryanair flight to Amman departed. Last Sunday it was show time for the first flight to Lisbon.

With the Ryanair flight FR 6802 a new country increases the still growing map of destinations from Memmingen. From now on the capital of Jordan will be operated twice a week – on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Passengers on the four hours non-stop flight to Amman, mostly from the South of Germany, are going to visit Petra, a city in the south, build from red cliffs, as well as the desert Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea. “Jordan enlarges our offers for a touristic and culturist destination and fits perfectly to our two weekly flights to Tel Aviv in this region”, explains Aviation Director, Marcel Schütz.

For holiday makers, business travelers, as well as visitors of friends and family members, the second premier destination is from the same interest: the Portuguese capital Lisbon, which is reachable since Sunday twice a week from Memmingen. After Porto and Faro, Lisbon is the third city in Portugal operated from the Memmingen Airport. “With now five destinations on the Iberian Peninsula”, so Marcel Schütz, “we are offering a compact program, which opens up interesting combinations to travel.” This Friday (1st of November) the destination Hurghada in Egypt celebrates its winter premier. Therefore, flights are operating once a week from Memmingen to the holiday center at the Red Sea during the whole year.

A further new first flight is already established: From the 30th March next year, Ryanair flies twice a week from Memmingen to the Caucasus State Armenia. Gyumri located close to the Turkish border, with 130.000 habitants is the second biggest city in the country and the newest member on a long list of destinations reachable from Memmingen Airport.
