Secure Your Charter Flight to Genoa Airport

Genoa Airport is located directly on the coast of the Ligurian Sea. The airport is only about ten kilometres from the city centre as the crow flies. Flights to and from Genoa land on and take-off from an artificial peninsula. Built on 160 hectares, the Genoa Airport, also called "Aeroporti di Genova-Sestri ‘Cristoforo Colombo’", has enough space to handle nearly 1.5 million passengers per year.

History of Genoa Airport

The foundation for today’s commercial and charter flights at Genoa Airport was laid by the airline SANA, which was founded in 1925. One year later, the city’s port started to be used as a provisional airport. Flights took off from the port to destinations in the Mediterranean Basin as well as more distant destinations. After the Second World War, planners decided to create an artificial peninsula in the port on which Genoa Airport was built. It was then inaugurated in 1962. A new terminal was built at the airport in 1986 for handling private jet charter in Genoa. The airport also now has its own railway station and easy access to the motorway network.
