Buses to and from Perugia Airport (PEG)

Perugia Airport is located approximately 12 km to the east of Perugia city, and in the Umbria region of Italy. It is a very small airport, but offers daily flights to destinations such as Milan-Malpensa, Trapani and London-Stansted, and is therefore also an international airport. Umbria is the only region in Italy that has no coastline, and is surrounded by the regions of Tuscany, Emilia Romagna, the Marches and Lazio. Nearby small towns include Assisi, Todi, Citta di Castello, Deruta and Cortone, while slightly larger areas are Foligno, Arezzo and Terni. Perugia Airport’s second name is San Egidio Airport, and its official airport code is PEG. There are a few transport options to and from the airport. The bus services are quite popular, and are a convenient way to travel. Traveling by bus is also very cost efficient when compared to tax services.

Perugia Airport has a single terminal building that is easy to navigate, simply consisting of the arrivals and departure areas. The airport is well known for being efficient and friendly, and has a very welcoming and homely feel to it. Since that it is one of Italy’s smallest airports, a nice personal touch can be added to its services, that passengers really find to be a nice change from the larger and busier airports. Many areas in Umbria, and a bit further away, can be reached by bus from Perugia Airport, and even some of Italy’s major cities, such as Rome and Naples.

The Perugia Airport buses can be found just outside the arrivals area, and nearby the taxi rank as well. Although taxis can provide a quicker and more private journey, passengers often choose buses for their cost effectiveness.
