Briefly about Catania Airport Italy

Catania-Fontanarossa Airport is located 5 kilometers south of historic city Catania, only 10 minutes from the city centre of the second largest city on the Italian island of Sicily, and is well served by city transport. It is the busiest airport in Sicily and the 6th busiest in Italy with 6,054,469 passengers in 2008, but in terms of domestic traffic it ranks at the 3rd place, after Leonardo da Vinci Airport and Linate Airport. Catania Airport’s history dates back to 1924, when it was the region’s very first airport. However, by the 1940s, it was clear that the airport was fast running out of space and it was deemed necessary to relocate and in 1950, the new bigger and improved Catania Airport opened for business. After 20 years of unexpected growth and high passengers’ levels, in 1981 it was once again necessary to restructure the airport to cope with demand. In order to cope with the increasing passengers’ figures, a new terminal, equipped with 20 gates and 6 loading bridges, opened on May 8, 2007 replacing the old facilities, but a further enlargement of the terminal area seems already necessary. There is rent a car company, where travelers can rent their own car for vacations. Facilities include 3 bars/restaurants, shops, a bank, ATM, bus ticket office, post office and a VIP lounge. Major airlines such as British Airways and Lufthansa offer services here and connect numerous European destinations such as Munich, Paris and Amsterdam, while domestic airlines offer extensive flights to many of the regions major destinations. The current investment program has ensured that Catania Fontanarossa Airport continues to look forward and plan for growth over the next ten years, implementing a whole new infrastructure and making many additions, including a panoramic restaurant, a new airside runway and further office space.
