Pisa International Airport (Italian: Aeroporto Internazionale di Pisa) (IATA: PSAICAO: LIRP), also named Galileo Galilei Airport[3] is an airport located in Pisa, Italy. It is the main airport in Tuscany and the 10th in Italy in terms of passengers.[4] It is named after Galileo Galilei, the famous scientist and native of Pisa.

Overview[edit]

The airport had its own railway station with a service to and from Pisa Central railway station but this was closed on December 15, 2013 to allow construction work to begin on a new fully automatic connection known as the Pisa Mover to take passengers to Pisa Central. The Pisa Mover came into operation on March 18, 2017. The airport has 5 passenger and 1 coach parking areas.[5]

Besides civilian operations, the airport is also used extensively by the Aeronautica Militare (Italian Air Force) and is a base for, amongst others, the C-130 Hercules and C-27J Spartan transport aircraft.[6] The airport is home to 46ª Brigata Aerea Silvio Angelucci (46th Air Brigade).
