The only thing better than one giant Lebkuchen heart is two giant Lebkuchen hearts, baked to celebrate the start of two new InterSky routes from Memmingen – to Hamburg and Berlin Tegel. Getting ready to eat them were: Dr. Ivo Holzinger, Mayor of Memmingen; Renate Moser, CEO and Joint Owner InterSky; Roger Hohl, CEO InterSky; and Ralf Schmid, CEO Allgäu Airport Memmingen.
- InterSky, the Austrian regional airline, has begun domestic German operations from Memmingen (FMM) this week, starting services to Berlin Tegel (TXL) and Hamburg (HAM) on 2 March. Both routes are flown by InterSky’s 70-seat ATR-72s, and neither of them face any direct competition, due largely to the fact that on the routes to Hamburg and Berlin, it will replace services flown by the current incumbent germanwings. Interestingly, on weekdays, two aircraft will leave Friedrichshafen within five minutes of each other, both arriving 20 minutes later in Memmingen (just a 64-kilometre hop). The two aircraft then split their operations, one departing to Berlin and one to Hamburg. The operational process is then reversed later in the day when the two aircraft return to Friedrichshafen, via Memmingen, from their sorties further north in Germany.See how Memmingen Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
