Lamezia Terme International Airport (Italian: Aeroporto Internazionale di Lamezia Terme "Sant'Eufemia") (IATA: SUFICAO: LICA) is an airport in the Sant'Eufemia district of Lamezia Terme, Calabria, Italy. It is the principal airport of Calabria. Its IATA airport code SUF derives from the name Sant'Eufemia.

A military helicopter unit, the 2° Reggimento dell'Aria "Sirio", is based near the airport.

History[edit]

In 1965 a consortium, CONSAER, was formed to build a new airport near the motorway, the railway and the port of Gioia Tauro; level ground near Lamezia Terme was chosen as the site. The airport opened in June 1976. Itavia began scheduled flights to Rome-Fiumicino, Milan-Linate, Catania and Palermo in December of that year. The airport was expanded and modernised in 1982. Since 1990 it has been managed by SACAL SpA, which is jointly owned by various local government administrations and by private investors. A contract to extend the runway from the current 2414 metres to 3000 m was awarded on 27 December 2007. A design competition for a new passenger terminal to replace the present building was held in November 2008, and was won by Engco.
