Memmingen Airport has undergone dynamic changes in the period 2008–2018. Passenger traffic, as well as general aviation traffic, was continuously growing and was expected to continue to evolve. In addition, landside development in the vicinity of the aerodrome, including airport business, was increasing.
The masterplan study aimed to define concepts for different stages of expansion (3 MAP, 5 MAP, 7 MAP). It was designed to present a future-oriented expansion vision for Memmingen Airport that sets guidelines for the long-term development strategy.
