PNL Airport

Pantelleria

Pantelleria Airport was built in the second half of the 1930s as a military stronghold to guard over a strategic geo-political point in the Strait of Sicily.
 
After World War II, the Americans restored the airport, which at the end of the 1940s was equipped with two runways. To bring the second runway to its current dimensions, between 1976 and 1982 work was carried out to resolve irregularities in the land, even by excavating a hill to allow aircraft of larger dimensions to land.
 
In 1976, work was carried out to construct the previous terminal, which was decommissioned in 1989 when construction of the present terminal began, which was finished in July 2012, the date on which the new airport of the Pantelleria Island was inaugurated.   
 
Pantelleria Airport is managed directly by the E.N.A.C. and has two slopes, one main and one secondary. Since 1999 the G.a.p. S.p.A. operates as a handler, established by a group of local entrepreneurs in 1997 and subsequently Save S.p.A. was added (Management Company also for the airports of Venice, Treviso, Verona and Brescia) and also the Municipality of Pantelleria.
