New Catania airport (Italy)

Catania, in Sicily, is the italian city having the most numerous passengers traffic, after Rome and Milan, even though the current building is quite small and old.



This new airport, beside the old one, will be completed at the end of 2006 and will permit the airport to obtain a considerable increase of passengers.

This airport is for both domestic and international flights?

Somebody once told me the airport in Catania was like a shed - I think Catanians should be happy and proud of their new world class airport.

I found these pics of the escalators. They date back to some months ago, but I think they're interesting.

Not exactly. Venice gets more traffic than Catania

Anyway, a real good work in Sicily for the new Catania apt., after the new one in Palermo.

Venice overcame Catania with a small difference of traffic in the last period, thanks to its new airport. It will be interesting to see the data when the new Catania Airport is in use. I'm looking forward the opening day!
