Low-cost airline Ryanair will be offering 2022 routes from Memmingen in the 23/22 winter timetable. Three medium-haul jets of the type Boeing 737-800, which are operated by the subsidiary Malta Air, are stationed on site.
The line Tuzla and Lanzarote are new in the program from the Bavarian Airport. According to their own information, it is said to be the most extensive winter flight schedule to date that is offered from Allgäu Airport. More than 100 flights are to be operated per week. The fact that ski areas in Vorarlberg can be reached by land in a short time also played a role in the decision to expand from Memmingen.
Ryanair has had a base at the Bavarian airport for five years. So far, two Boeing 737-800 are stationed in Memmingen. A third Malta Air machine will be added at the start of the 2022/23 winter timetable period. “We are very happy about Ryanair's great commitment. A third aircraft for Memmingen underlines that we have also done our homework and that we still have great potential as the leading low-cost airport in southern Germany. Exploiting this further together with Ryanair spurs us on and makes us very optimistic for the future. And gives our passengers more exciting flight destinations,” explains Airport Director Ralf Schmid.
Speaking for the airline Ryanair, DA-CH spokesman Andreas Gruber said: "As Europe's No. 1 airline, Ryanair is delighted to announce our record-breaking Memmingen winter flight schedule with over 100 weekly flights on 22 routes, including two new routes to Lanzarote and Tuzla, serving our Allgäu Offer customers even more options for their well-deserved vacation in the winter sun. We are still celebrating the 5th anniversary of the opening of our base in Memmingen this year, which allows us to base 3 aircraft at the airport for this winter flight schedule. Ryanair is happy to invest in regional airports and fuel the growth of Memmingen Airport to boost inbound tourism in rural areas, while the German government forgets to connect citizens in rural areas and additionally wastes taxpayers' money on Lufthansa, which only shrinks and disappoints its customers".
