|Aeroporti di Puglia manages the Apulian airport system, which includes the Bari, Brindisi, Foggia, and Taranto-Grottaglie airports, thanks to a forty-year concession by the Apulian Regional Administration.
Becoming a key factor in the economic development of the region, airports in Puglia contribute, each in its own area, in the steady process of growth and social development. The airports in Bari and Brindisi are dedicated to the growing number of passengers.
The Bari “Karol Wojtyla” International Airport is one of Italy’s most comfort-oriented and technologically advanced, powered by more than forty types of electrical, mechanical and fluid-technical plants, monitored and checked by a sophisticated Building Automation system, along with a complex video surveillance system and a modern automated control center.
The Bari International Airport, designed to provide excellent service and comfort standards, thus facing the dramatic increase in terms of passenger traffic, is an outstanding example of tenacity, professionalism, and hard work on which AEROPORTI DI PUGLIA bases its policy while serving the entire community in Puglia.
The success achieved with the new Bari airport is shown by the high degree of satisfaction expressed by passengers through surveys and interviews, and the stunning traffic increase featuring more than 3,000,000 incoming and outgoing passengers in 2007, since its renovation. And that number has constantly increased.
The strategy of upgrading the airport infrastructures in Apulia, implemented by AEROPORTI DI PUGLIA was recently extended to the Brindisi Airport, renewed and revamped according to the highest quality standards and hub capacity, as was the case of Foggia and Taranto-Grottaglie airports. After recent extension and refurbishment works, the new “Aeroporto del Salento” air terminal in Brindisi now operates in full compliance with high standards of quality and improved hub capacity. These works allowed the upgrading of available routes, giving Puglia a strategic position as a reference region for the Mediterranean area in terms of domestic and international air traffic.
