Sicilian Airport Guide

The airports in Sicily are generally functional operations, so you may not have the same extensive range of shops and restaurants that you would expect to find at UK Airports.

Palermo Airport

Palermo Airport, also known as Palermo Falcone-Borsellino Airport, is located 35km west of Palermo city centre.

This airport is the busiest airport on the island.

Palermo is the main gateway to the north and west coast of Sicily.


Catania Airport

Catania–Fontanarossa Airport, also known as Vincenzo Bellini Airport, is located just 4km south of the city of Catania.

Catania is the second largest city on the island of Sicily.

Catania is a convenient airport for Taormina, Etna, the rest of the east coast and the south east region of the island.


Comiso Airport

Comiso Airport, also known as Vincenzo Magliocco Airport, is located in the Ragusa province, in the south of the island, 26 km from the town of Ragusa itself.

This airport was converted from a military airport in 2008.

The airport is very convenient for visiting certain southern areas of the island, such as the incredible ancient history that can be discovered around Agrigento.
