Genoa Airport (IATA: GOA, ICAO: LIMJ) (Italian: Aeroporto di Genova) also named Christopher Columbus Airport ("Aeroporto Cristoforo Colombo" in Italian) (Italian pronunciation: [kriˈstɔːforo koˈlombo]), and commonly named Aeroporto di Genova-Sestri Ponente (Genoa-Sestri Ponente Airport, after the city district where it is located) is an international airport built on an artificial peninsula, 4 NM (7.4 km; 4.6 mi) west[1] of Genoa, Italy. It is the most important airport of Liguria and it serves the city and Port of Genoa, as well as considerable population in Southern Piedmont (Asti and Alessandria Provinces, Southern areas of Cuneo Province) and Southern Lombardy (Province of Pavia). It is currently operated by Aeroporto di Genova S.P.A., which has recently upgraded the airport complex.

The airport is also the manufacturing base for Piaggio Aerospace, an Italian aircraft design and production company.

In 2017, with 1,249,374 passengers having passed through the airport[3], Genoa remained as the 23rd busiest Italian airport by passenger traffic. The Spanish low-cost airline Volotea operates one of its four bases in Italy in Genoa Airport. The airport is named after the notable Genoese navigator and explorer Christopher Columbus.
