How many airports are in Sicily?

Sicily is the largest island in Italy and in the Mediterranean, in fact it is well connected with Italy and the rest of the world.

It boasts 6 airports: Catania, Palermo, Trapani, Comiso which are the 4 main airports in Sicily and Lampedusa and Pantelleria which are smaller airports in the islands.

The Six Airports in Sicily represent one of the largest airport infrastructures in the Mediterranean.

All the airports of Sicily are well connected and allow, if desired and with the right time, to visit the whole island anyway.

They are connected with the main national and European destinations and offer services such as charter flights, VIP service and cargo transport.

If you want more information on the airports: those of Catania and Palermo are the largest and those with the most civilian traffic flights, therefore they are the most important airports in Sicily.

Where should you land in Sicily?

Is it better to take a cheap flight or is it better to go close to the places you want to visit?

It depends on your travel plans.

If you want to go to Sicily and visit popular tourist destinations such as Palermo, Catania or Taormina, the best choice is to arrive at one of Sicilian international airports.

If, on the other hand, you want to taste the more authentic and local side of Sicily, it is better to arrive at a smaller airport and then take a ferry to the main island in Sicily.

Regardless of where you choose to land, Sicily is sure to offer a unique and memorable experience right from to the airport.

If you want to go to Syracuse, Agrigento, Ragusa, Messina or Enna (the cities of Sicily without an airport) it will be easy to do it from any of the Sicilian airports.
