Amalfi Coast to Get Its Own Airport in 2024, Making It Easier for Tourists to Visit

The Amalfi Coast, one of Italy’s most popular travel destinations, is finally getting its own airport, making it easier for tourists to visit the spectacular location. With its charming historical towns, dramatic cliffs, and awe-inspiring beaches, the Amalfi Coast attracts around five million visitors each year. However, reaching this southern Italian coastline has been notoriously difficult due to the lack of a nearby airport.

But now, the situation is set to change as the Salerno Costa d’Amalfi Airport is planned to be in operation from July 2024. This airport, which has been closed for commercial operations for several years, will see a new lease of life with the introduction of commercial flights. Volotea, a Spanish airline, is expected to operate flights to and from the airport, connecting the Amalfi Coast to destinations such as Nantes in France and Cagliari in Sardinia starting in July, with more routes to follow in September.

The airport is also undergoing upgrades, including an extension of the runway by 2,000 meters (6,562 feet) and the addition of aircraft stands and facilities. Further redevelopment is planned, with a new passenger terminal expected to be completed by 2026. The goal is to have multiple airlines operating at the airport, making it more accessible to travelers and further boosting tourism in the region.

With these developments, the Amalfi Coast is poised to become an even more sought-after destination, offering easier access for tourists looking to experience the beauty and charm of this UNESCO World Heritage site. The introduction of the Salerno Costa d’Amalfi Airport is set to open up new opportunities for travelers and contribute to the continued growth of tourism in this stunning Italian coastal region.
