Buses to and from Treviso Airport (TSF)
Treviso Airport is located approximately 20km, or 12 miles from the city of Venice, and is just 3km, or 1.8 miles from Treviso. It serves these cities and others in the Veneto region of Italy, and handles approximately two million passengers every year. The airport is otherwise known as the Treviso-Sant’Angelo Airport, or as the Treviso Venice Airport by the airline company of Ryanair. It has the official airport code of TSF. The airport buses provide a valuable form of transport from the airport, and travel to the main cities in the nearby vicinity. Buses are a much cheaper way to travel than by taxi, and many passengers use their services.
The airport has a large, single terminal building, well equipped to meet the needs of it’s passengers, and the building is ‘new’, having been completed in 2007. It is named as the Canova building, after a famous Italian artist, and therefore, Treviso Airport is often referred to as the Canova Airport. Arriving passengers will find various transport options available. There is a taxi rank outside the airport terminal, and bus stops nearby as well. There is however, no direct rail connection from the airport. The buses should be used in order to reach the trains of the country. There are three Treviso bus services from which to choose, each travelling to a different destination. The buses are considered to be comfortable, and an efficient and cost effective way to reach the centre of Treviso, Venice and Padova. Padova (Padua) is found to the south-west of Treviso, and to the west of Venice.
