Bolzano Airport (Italian: Aeroporto di Bolzano — Dolomiti, German: Flughafen Bozen — Dolomiten) (IATA: BZO, ICAO: LIPB) is a small regional airport near Bolzano in the province of South Tyrol in northern Italy.

History[edit]

The airport was created in October 1926 with a 1300-meter landing runway.[2]

In June 2016, a public opinion poll decided to no longer support the highly deficient airport with money from the government. Therefore, it was decided that the airport's operator company would be liquidated and the licence given back to the Italian authorities, which means the airport would be shut down entirely if no other operator were found.

South Tyrol spent over €120 million in recent years for the airport without attracting any lasting scheduled traffic.[3] Darwin Airline ceased their PSO-flights to Rome on behalf of Alitalia on 18 June 2015 leaving Bolzano Airport again without any scheduled commercial traffic.[4]
