Verona Airport (IATA: VRN, ICAO: LIPX), also known as Valerio Catullo Villafranca Airport or simply Verona-Villafranca Airport is an airport located 2.7 NM (5.0 km; 3.1 mi) southwest of Verona, Italy. It is situated in the middle of the provinces of Brescia, Mantua, Rovigo, Vicenza, Trento, Bolzano and Verona, serving a population of more than four million inhabitants.

In 1999 Valerio Catullo Airport reached the second position in the special classification of charter traffic after Milano Malpensa and before Roma Fiumicino.

In 2006 three million passengers used the airport for the first time. Growth continues, with 3,510,259 passengers in 2007.

History

Verona Villafranca was a military airport during the Second World War and opened to civil traffic in the early 1960s with some charter flights to the North of Europe and daily connections to Rome. At the end of the 1970s, thanks to the first community project developed by the Province, the Municipality and the Chamber of Commerce of Verona, Verona Villfrance became a real air terminal with offices and facilities. The managing society "Aeroporto Valerio Catullo di Verona Villafranca Spa" was then established in December 1978 and was partially owned also by the Municipalities Villafranca and Sommacampagna, by the Provinces of Trento (second main shareholder), Brescia, Bolzano and by other local bodies.

In 1990, in order to cope with constantly growing air traffic, the terminal was expanded. The aircraft apron and car parking areas were enlarged, while access was improved by a connection to the new ring roads built for the World Cup.

In 1995 the airport reached the record of one million passengers per annum and only five years later, in 2001, the number of people carried grew to two millions. In 2006 three million passengers were handled for the first time in one year.

In response to the constant passenger growth, the Catullo undertook a significant programme to expand its services and facilities for the increasing number of airport users. In May 2006 a new arrivals terminal was opened in the presence of Vice-Minister of Transport Cesare De Piccoli and Vice-President of Veneto Region Luca Zaia, immediately doubling terminal capacity. This enabled more space to be created for departures in the original Catullo building, which was further expanded by 3000 square meters.

Verona airport is equipped with a fog-dispersal device, which is the best solution available in Italy and abroad in order to allow flying operations even in case of low visibility. This sophisticated system (which has been in operation since 2003), allows for Category IIIB operation up to 75 m (246 ft) visibility.
