Marina di Campo Airport (Italian: Aeroporto di Marina di Campo) (IATA: EBAICAO: LIRJ) is the airport of the Italian island of Elba,[4] located in the area of "La Pila", in Marina di Campo. It is also known as Teseo Tesei Airport (Italian: Aeroporto "Teseo Tesei"). It is the third airport of Tuscany in terms of passengers after Pisa International Airport and Florence Airport and serves as a focus city of Silver Air.

History[edit]

Opened as a grass airstrip in 1963, the airport was taken over by Milan-based company Transair in 1966 and was developed to handle commercial traffic, with regional airline Transavio flying Britten-Norman Islanders and Piaggio P.166 aircraft to Pisa, Milan and Florence, although a tarmac runway was not opened until 1991. Transavio folded in 1990, but several other regional airlines including InterSky, Silver Air and Air Alps started operations in the following years. A new terminal was opened in 2013, with the old building remaining as a cafeteria, shopping centre and offices.
