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

History[edit]

In June 2016, a public opinion poll decided to no longer support the highly deficient airport with money from the government. Therefore it has been decided that the airport's operator company will be liquidated and the licence given back to the Italian authorities which means the airport will be shut down entirely if no other operator is found. South Tirol spend over €120 million in recent years for the airport without attracting any lasting scheduled traffic.[2]

Airlines and destinations[edit]

Darwin Airline ceased their PSO-flights to Rome on behalf of Alitalia on 18 June 2015 leaving Bolzano Airport without any scheduled commercial traffic.[3] The nearest international airports with regular flights to a variety of destinations are in Innsbruck approx. 120 km to the north or Verona 150 km to the south.
