Friuli Venezia Giulia Airport (IATA: TRS, ICAO: LIPQ), also known as Trieste Airport or Ronchi dei Legionari Airport, is an airport located in (0.3 NM (0.56 km; 0.35 mi) west Ronchi dei Legionari (Gorizia), near Trieste, Venezia Giulia, the capital and largest city of the Friuli – Venezia Giulia region, in north-eastern Italy. In 2007 it was renamed Friuli – Venezia Giulia "Pietro Savorgnan di Brazzà" Airport, in honor of the 19th-Century humanitarian explorer of Africa known in English and French as Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza.

This airport has a catchment area of approximately 5 million people, stretching beyond Friuli-Venezia Giulia into Slovenia and Croatia. The airport is equipped to handle all major aircraft and in recent years has witnessed an increase in cargo aircraft. In 2008, Friuli Venezia Giulia Airport handled almost 1.1 million passengers.


The first official documents citing the airfield of Ronchi dei Legionari date back to November 30, 1935, when the 4th Fighter Wing of the Royal Italian Air Force was based here.

Commercial operations officially began on 2 December 1961.

The Company

Aeroporto Friuli-Venezia Giulia SpA is the Company that has been running the airport since July 1997; its shareholders are the Consorzio per l'Aeroporto Friuli-Venezia Giulia - a consortium of local authorities and municipalities - (51%) and the Friuli – Venezia Giulia Region (49%).

In addition to this, the Company aims at developing non-aviation activities at the airport.
