During the Easter holidays in Lower Saxony and North Rhine-Westphalia, the FMO had already reached the level of the pre-Corona year 2019 with a total of 60.000 passengers.
Flights to Mallorca were particularly popular during the Easter holidays. In the current flight plan, Mallorca even has the highest number of seats in the last ten years. Antalya on the Turkish Riviera and the Canary Islands of Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote and Tenerife were also popular destinations.
For the whole of 2022, Münster/Osnabrück Airport expects significantly more than 700.000 passengers due to the registered and bookable flights. This would double the number of passengers compared to the previous year. The forecast growth results from a particularly strong tourist program with a focus on Mallorca, Greek islands and Turkey. The important Lufthansa connections to Frankfurt and Munich will also be increased more quickly than originally expected due to demand from business travellers.
"The Easter holidays have impressively shown that people's need to travel is unbroken," said FMO Managing Director Rainer Schwarz. "Our strong summer flight schedule is the basis for extremely positive prospects this year," Schwarz continued.
