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.
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 Croatia, Hungary and the Balkans. At the interchange near Palmanova, the A4 branches off to Autostrada A23 linking to Austria's Süd Autobahn (A2) via Udine and Tarvisio.
