Brescia is one of Northern Italy’s benchmark airports for general air travel. Precisely due to its strategic location, just 20 minutes from Lake Garda, half an hour from Franciacorta and 40 minutes from Milan, it is a destination chosen by many private flights, totalling over 3,000 in 2013.
Open 24/7, the airport welcomes and assists aircraft of all sizes, providing all the necessary services for plane handling (pushback, de-icing, refuelling), passenger reception and baggage handling (loading-unloading and security). Immigration and customs procedures take place inside the airport, which also offers passengers the following comforts: airside lounge and landside conference and meeting rooms, plus Wi-Fi internet connection. Crews have their own dedicated areas.
Its vicinity to Italy’s main motorways and railways (A4 and A35 motorways, the Milan-Venice rail connection with plans for a High-speed service) and its infrastructures (a 3,000m long runway and over 11,000m² of warehouse) have led to a strong cargo business, which started up in 2004. Today, Brescia Airport is a hub for Italy’s national postal service and in 2013; it handled around 40,000 tonnes of goods and mail.
The airport is located in the Po valley, one of the most heavily populated and most economically developed areas in Italy, with around 20 million inhabitants (33% of the Italian population), 1.8 million companies (33% of the total in Italy), a generated GDP of approximately 600 billion euros (accounting for about 40% of the national GDP) and it handles 54% of the Italian total imports and exports. Together with Verona, Venice and Treviso, it has recently set up the northeast airport hub, enabling important synergy and guaranteeing that current and future demand in this region is fully met.
