Charter a Private Jet to Pisa International Airport

Owing to its size and central location, Pisa Airport is the most important airport in Tuscany. The airport is about two kilometres south of the city of Pisa, which allows for a quick transfer to the centre as well as onward travel to the surrounding cities and villages in Tuscany. The airport is replete with all modern conveniences and facilities, and two runways are available for the handling of airplanes.

Air Travel in Tuscany: The History of Pisa Airport

Pisa International Airport, also known as Galileo Galilei Airport, was officially opened in 1911. The airport was originally built for military purposes and to that end exclusively served the Italian Airforce for several decades. The Italian Air Force still uses the airport to this day, largely as a logistics base for long-distance aircraft. The main civil aviation terminal at Pisa Airport was first built in 1966 and gradually expanded and improved upon to meet current standards. In order to provide all passengers with a comfortable stay and easy movement around the site, the airport is barrier-free. On request, escort and porter services are provided and a special lounge is available for long-term stays.

Flights to Pisa by Private Jet

Located in the north-west of Tuscany, Pisa Airport is the most important in the region, not least of all because Florence Airport (LIRQ / FLR) is relatively small and lacks capacity for the volume of flights to the region. Many visitors to Tuscany begin and end their journey at Pisa International Airport. Many destinations within Italy and beyond can be reached comparatively quickly by charter flight from Pisa Aiport. Top connections include:

Private jet charter from Pisa to Moscow Vnukovo (VKO) take a little more than three hours. Vnukovo is the third largest airport in Moscow and is situated southwest of the Russian metropolis. The fastest way to get to the inner city is by helicopter. The flight time from Pisa to Rome Ciampino (CIA) is less than an hour. The airport is about 15 kilometres from the city centre, which can be reached quickly and comfortably by taxi or transfer service. Alternatively, there are various rental companies at the airport. A private jet from Pisa to Nice (NCE) takes about 50 minutes. Located directly on the Côte d'Azur, the airport is just ten minutes from the city. As neighbouring Monaco does not have its own airport, Nice Airport also serves as a destination for the Principality. At the airport a helicopter is available for transfers. A charter flight from Pisa to the Pratica di Mare (QEZ) takes just under an hour. From this airfield, Rome is about 25 kilometres away and about 40 minutes by car. As Pratica di Mare is a military airfield, we recommend organising a shuttle in advance. A flight from Pisa to Milan Linate (LIN) takes about 45 minutes. The journey from the airport to the city centre takes about half an hour by car.

Every year, the PSA Airport hosts over 4.8 million passengers (2015) as a take-off, landing and transfer airport. To make your stay at the airport as comfortable as possible, the Galileo VIP lounge is available to charter flight passengers. Here you can wait in a relaxed atmosphere and enjoy an aperitif at the open bar. The lounge is fully equipped with Wi-Fi and a selection of international magazines. There is also a business centre available for business travellers. Meetings and conferences can be held in the premises.

The airport’s two runways are only two metres (7 ft.) above sea level. They run parallel to each other and can be flown to according to Visual Flight Rules (VFR) and Instrumental Flight Rules (IFR).

Runway Length and width Surface

In order to minimise noise pollution for the city’s residents, flights to and from Pisa are subject to certain restrictions. The airport is open to air traffic between 6 am to 11 pm.

Transfers to and from Pisa Airport

For a quick and comfortable transfer to the city centre, a rental car is recommended. A number of car hire providers can be found on the 5th parking level. Taxis are available 24 hours a day. The taxi rank is located in front of the arrivals terminal. For those who need something a little more private or discreet, we recommend booking a limousine transfer.

Catch a Private Jet to Pisa and Discover Tuscany

A charter flight to Pisa is the best start way to start a trip to Tuscany. If you plan to stay in the city of Pisa itself, you should stay in one of the luxurious hotels away from the busy centre. Sights like the Leaning Tower of Pisa or the Baptistery are best reached by taxi. A trip to the sea is also recommended. The town centre is just 15 kilometres from the Marina di Pisa village, which is located on the Mediterranean coast. From the yacht harbour, you can take beautiful day trips all over the Tyrrhenian Mediterranean. If you are not just looking for a short business trip in the city, you should also visit the surrounding cities in Tuscany: Florence can be reached in about one hour from Pisa, whilst Lucca and Pontedra are each about 20 to 30 minutes away by car.
