History of Pisa Airport

The origins of the airport date back to 1911, when an aerodrome was established in San Giusto a Coltano by Ugo and Guido Antoni of Pisa to test aeroplanes built by the Fratelli Antoni Aviation Company. After World War I, the infrastructure became more important and work was carried out to lengthen and extend the runway. In 1921 the airport was named after the aviator Arturo Dell’Oro.

In the 1930s, it was the permanent home of the 46th Wing, which used the port as its home base until 1940. Heavily bombed during World War II, the airport owes its rebirth to the return of the 46th Wing in the late 1940s. It began in the 1950s with the construction of at least two runways and associated logistics facilities to enable the operation of the recently acquired Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar military transport aircraft, transforming the 46th Wing into the 46th Transport Aerobrigade and later the 46th Airborne Brigade.

These special logistical support features, necessary to ensure the operability of the Air Force’s only air transport unit, laid the foundations for the present Pisa airport. In the same years, commercial flights gradually resumed, taking advantage of the building and aprons in front of the wing command, while the civil air terminal did not yet exist; then, with the arrival of the 1960-1970s, the current civil airport was born, named after Galileo Galilei of Pisa.

The design of the air terminal in 1961 was by the architect Lamberto Bartolucci.

At the end of the 1980s, following the opening of Florence-Peretola airport, previously only a military airport, to international routes, Pisa airport saw a contraction in passenger traffic, especially related to tourism, but since the 1990s it has conquered this market segment by opening to low-cost airlines and remains the main airport in Tuscany, with more than twice the passenger traffic of Florence airport.

In 2015, work began on the redevelopment of the airport, to be completed in 2028
