During the winter season, snow can pose a problem.

Lugano Airport (IATA: LUG, ICAO: LSZA) is a regional airport located 4 km (2.5 mi) west of Lugano, Switzerland. It lies closer to the nearby village of Agno than to Lugano itself, and so is usually known as Lugano-Agno.

Lugano-Agno's instrument approach procedure is quite challenging because of its steep angle of descent of 6.65°, more than double of the standard approach angle of 3°. This is due to its geographic location in the mouth of a valley.

Lugano Airport is increasing its business jets operation, having solved the approach difficulties which arose during the past. Nowadays almost all kinds of mid- and long-range business jets (such as the Dassault Falcon 900-2000 and 7X, as well as Gulfstream series 2, 3, 4 and 5, and Cessna Citations of all types) are accepted and may perform a full legal landing in Lugano according to JAR OPS. Lugano Airport is aiming to become a leading regional business jet airport for the Ticino and Northern Italy regions by allowing passengers to avoid the difficulties of traffic congestion and waiting times at larger airports.
