Catania Airport Information
Catania Airport was the regionís first airport back in 1924. It was seized during the Second World War by the Allies during the Sicilian campaign and was used by the United States Army Air Force as a military airfield. A number of transport units also used the airport during this war but it was later returned to the civil authorities.
In the late 1940s it was evident that the airport fast was running out of space. This therefore led to the relocation of the airport and in 1950 a new and bigger Catania Airport was officially opened for business. However, there was unexpected growth and high passenger volumes after twenty years and the airport had to be restructured once again in 1981 to cope with the high demands. Recently, a new state-of-the-art terminal was launched. The airport is served by major airlines like British Airways and Lufthansa which offer connections to many European destinations.
Major airlines such as British Airways and Lufthansa offer services here and connect numerous European destinations such as Munich and London, while domestic airlines offer extensive flights to many of the regions major destinations.
