Treviso Airport is found in the country of Italy, and serves the city of the same name. It is also an important gateway for many other towns and cities in the Veneto region of Italy, including the famous city of Venice. The airport is therefore referred to by airline companies as the Treviso-Venice, and its other names include the Sant’Angelo and the Canova. The airport is distinguished from other similar establishments by the IATA code of TSF, and it’s ICAO code is listed as LIPH. The Italian name in use is the Aeroporto di Treviso-Sant’Angelo.
The airport is located in the north-eastern region of Italy, and just 3km, or 1.8 miles west-southwest of the city. It is particularly nearby to the small areas of Sant’Angelo, Torre d’Orlando, Canizzano, La Monchia and Quinto di Treviso, and the city of Treviso is to the south of Vittorio Veneto and Conegliano, to the north of Venice and to the east of Castelfranco Veneto. On the eastern side of the city, is San Biagio di Callalta, and further east is Trieste. The larger cities surrounding the location also include Belluno, Vicenza and Padova (Padua). Treviso airport is approximately 20km, or 12 miles from Venice, and is quite often used as an alternative to the larger and busier Venice Marco Polo. Together, these two locations form the Sistema Aeroportuale di Venezia, and are an important air transportation system in Italy.
Passengers on departure flights from Treviso Airport can easily reach the airport by private vehicle, as there are a few significant roads nearby. In general, the main roads of Italy are in good condition as well. The airport road is the Via Noalese (SR515), and it runs directly into the city. The drive is just fifteen to twenty minutes. The SR53 runs to areas west and east, and heading south towards Venice is the SS13 and the A27, which is the closest Autostrada to Treviso. These two roads also provide access from areas to the north, such as Villorba and Spresiano. The drive to Venice is approximately half an hour. Alternatively, passengers can travel by bus or taxi, however, there is no train station on the airport grounds. The ACTT bus company operates a bus service from the Train Station, and the ATVO bus company runs a service from the Venice Mestre Railway Station. A bus is also available from Padova (Padua).
In 2010, the airport served 2,152,163 passengers, which is the best result ever, and had a total of 20,588 aircraft movements. Although much smaller compared to the Venice Airport, it is still quite busy, and expects higher passenger traffic in the years to come. One of the main airline companies here is Ryanair, a very popular low-cost carrier, serving the destinations of Alicante, Barcelona, Malaga, London-Stansted, Brussels, Dublin, Trapani, Bari, East Midlands, Hahn and Weeze, just to name a few. Some of Ryanair’s flights are also seasonal. Germanwings and Wizz Air are another two airline carriers at Treviso, and they offer flights to Cologne/Bonn, Hanover, Stuttgart, Bucharest and Prague. Additional airline companies available include Air Arabia Maroc, Belle Air, Belle Air operated by Belle Air Europe, Transavia and Wizz Air Ukraine. Neos is a charter airline carrier, serving the destination of Ibiza, an island of Spain.
The airport dates back to the early 1900’s when it was used as a landing field for the Aero Club. It then became a civilian establishment in the 1930’s. However, it only had a full-fledged passenger terminal after the World Wars, and in the 1950’s. During this time, international flights to London and Vienna were operated. Originally, the airport was serving the city of Venice, but in 1960, the Venice Airport was opened closer to the city. The popularity of the new destination grew quickly, and this resulted in a traffic decline at Treviso. However, in 1966, management of the Marco Polo (SAVE) took a 45% stake in Aer Tre, the management company of Treviso Airport, and the two became more united in their operations. The destination was then the second airport for Venice, handling low-cost flights, charter flights and freight operations. The facilities once again become profitable, seeing an excess of 1.3 million passengers in recent years.
The airport has one runway, 2,420 metres in length, and one fairly large terminal building for all passenger operations. This is a new building , as it was completed in 2007. It is named as the Canova Terminal, in honour of a famous Italian artist, Antonia Canova. For this reason, another popular name is the Canova Airport. The terminal has a few levels. The ground floor is used for arrival procedures, the first floor has departure facilities and the third floor is used as offices for authorities. In the terminal, there are many useful facilities, including shops and restaurants, an airline ticket sales counter, foreign currency exchange services, cash machines, first aid facilities, car rental companies and information counters. The bus companies have service desks from where passengers can purchase tickets.
In addition, Treviso Airport welcomes disabled passengers by providing a number of services applicable to their needs, and offers baby-changing areas for families travelling with young children.
