Aeroporti di Puglia SpA manages the airport system in Apulia, which includes the airports in Bari, Brindisi, Foggia, and Taranto, in terms of a total forty year concession.
As a key factor in the economic development of the region, the airports in Apulia compete, each in their own area of expertise, in the process of the economic growth and social development of Apulia. The airports in Bari and Brindisi are dedicated to the growing number of passengers - which featured an increase of 18,3% compared to 2006.
Bari’s “Karol Wojtila” International Airport is one of the most comfort-oriented, technologically-advanced infrastructures, equipped with machinery powered by more than forty types of electrical, mechanical and fluid-technical plants, which are monitored and checked by the sophisticated Building Automation system, along with an intricate video surveillance system and a modern remote control room.
After extension and refurbishment works, the new airterminal “Aeroporto del Salento” has recently become operative in compliance with high standards of quality and hub capacity.
Such modern infrastructure at Bari’s International Airport, designed to provide excellent standards of service and comfort, and aptly face the great increase in passenger traffic, is a shining example of the ethics of tenacity, professionalism, and work on which AEROPORTI DI PUGLIA bases its daily operations by serving the entire community in Apulia.
The success achieved with the new Bari Airport is shown by the high degree of satisfaction expressed in passengers’ interviews, and the stunning traffic increase featuring more than 3,000,000 passengers who travelled through Bari’s Airport in 2007.
The strategy of upgrading the airport infrastructures in Apulia, implemented by AEROPORTI DI PUGLIA was recently extended to the Brindisi Airport, which was extended and renewed to the highest quality standards and hub capacity, as well as to the airports of Foggia and Grottaglie. These works allowed to upgrade the routes available, giving Apulia a strategic position in the role of a reference region for the Mediterranean area in terms of domestic and international air traffic.
