Brescia Airport Gabriele D'Annunzio (IATA: VBSICAO: LIPO) is an airport in Montichiari, near Brescia, Italy. Other airports in the region include Malpensa, Linate and Orio al Serio.

History[edit]

Ryanair operated scheduled flights to and from London Stansted Airport and Cagliari-Elmas Airport until the end of October 2010, when the airline decided to move these flights to the nearby Verona Airport from which it has since pulled out after investigations of subsidies granted there.

Passenger Traffic has collapsed from strong year on year growth 2007-2008 leading to a throughput of almost 35,000 passengers a month in June 2008 [2] to only 311 passengers in all of June 2013, a drop of 99.9% in 5 years. [3]
