Trieste – Friuli Venezia Giulia Airport (IATA: TRS, ICAO: LIPQ) (Italian: Aeroporto di Trieste–Friuli Venezia Giulia), formerly Trieste – Ronchi dei Legionari Airport, is an international airport located 0.3 NM (0.56 km; 0.35 mi) west of Ronchi dei Legionari (Province of Gorizia),[1] near Trieste in Venezia Giulia, north-eastern Italy. The airport has a catchment area of approximately 5 million people, stretching beyond Friuli-Venezia Giulia into Slovenia and Croatia.

Overview[edit]

The first official documents citing the airfield of Ronchi dei Legionari date back to 30 November 1935, when the 4th Fighter Wing of the Royal Italian Air Force was based here. Commercial operations officially began on 2 December 1961. In 2007 the airport was renamed Friuli – Venezia Giulia "Pietro Savorgnan di Brazzà" Airport, in honor of the 19th-century humanitarian explorer of Africa known in English as Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza, namegiver of Brazzaville. In recent years the airport has witnessed growth in low-cost and cargo traffic.

The airport is owned and operated by Aeroporto Friuli Venezia Giulia S.p.A., a state corporation whose sole shareholder is the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region.

The airport is connected to the national railway and highway networks thanks to the Intermodal Transit Hub completed in March 2018, serving as an air-road-rail interchange. The Trieste Airport railway station, links the passenger terminal directly to the Venice–Trieste railway thanks to a 425-meter long raised walkway. A bus terminal with 16 platforms, a multi-storey car park with 500 lots and a grade level car park with 1000 lots provide rapid access to and from the A4 Trieste-Turin highway for public and private motor vehicles. In the southern direction, this highway also offers connections to Slovenia's A1 Motorway with two crossings at Fernetti and Rabuiese, linking the airport with the highway networks in Austria, Croatia, Hungary and the Balkans.
