Elmas, Su Masu in Sardinian language, is a comune (municipality) of the Metropolitan City of Cagliari in the Italian region of Sardinia, located about 8 kilometres (5 mi) northwest of Cagliari.

Until 1989 Elmas was a district of Cagliari. It is best known locally as the location for the airport which serves Cagliari, some 7 kilometres (4 mi) to the east to the town. According to 2011 census, it has 8,949 inhabitants.

Climate[edit]

Elmas has a hot-summer Mediterranean climate (Köppen: Csa) with summers being very hot and dry and winter mild and humid, associated with high subtropical pressure. The snow turns out to be a rare phenomenon, unlike mountains not so distant.[4] Its precipitation values also bring it closer to semi-arid conditions.[5][6]
