Naples International Airport
Naples International Airport is the international airport serving Naples and the Southern Italian region of Campania. According to 2019 data, the airport is the fifth-busiest airport in Italy and the first one in Southern Italy. The airport serves as a base for easyJet, Ryanair, Volotea and Wizzair.
Commercial traffic started in 1950. In 1980 GE.S.A.C. (“Gestione Servizi Aeroporto Capodichino”) was established to administer the airport; in 1982 it became “Gestione Servizi Aeroporti Campani” and participated in by the City Council, the province of Naples and Alitalia. In 1995 GE.S.A.C. drew up – with BAA assistance – a new master plan, which marked the beginning of a twenty-year development plan. After two years (1997) GE.S.A.C. was the first airport management company in Italy to be privatised: BAA acquires 70% of the share package from the City Council and Province of Naples. In 1998 the “Galleria Napoli” opened, a shopping arcade open 365 days a year inside Terminal 1. In 2002 Prince Charles inaugurated the new departure lounge.
In June 2005, the airport’s maiden transatlantic flight took off. Eurofly began a seasonal service to New York City using Airbus A330s. Afterward, the airline merged with Meridiana to create Meridiana Fly, which started operating the route instead. In 2018, the carrier rebranded as Air Italy, and the flight to New York ceased. Nevertheless, United Airlines launched a link to Newark the following May; the service would operate every summer.
