Comiso Airport (Sicily): 47 millions for development

Schembari (mayor): "Cargo flights are essential for the fruit and vegetable production area and floriculture"

The "Pio La Torre" Italian airport in Comiso (Sicily) is a living reality. The municipal administration of the Sicilian city reiterates this, recalling that 47 million euros are earmarked for the stopover for the development of the cargo area and the construction of ancillary roads, as well as for the construction of an aircraft fuel station within the airport. airport itself. A real shout out to pessimism fueled by "various forms of artfully conveyed misinformation".

The airport "apparently is not on the list of airports that are about to close their doors. Nor, as some would have you believe, is it intended exclusively for cargo flights which, however, are now of fundamental importance for a quality production area like fruit and vegetables and floriculture", said the mayor of Comiso, Maria Rita Schembari.

The territory is a living reality "which today places Comiso, and therefore the entire province, at the center of routes intended first and foremost to attract tourists even before following village logics that would like flights for single and personal use and consumption". Thanks to the funds allocated the airport will have "double the gates for traffic- passengers" and "parking areas for planes that go from six to 12".
