Management of Venice Marco Polo Airport
The airport management operations concentrate mainly on development the infrastructures and flight network of the Venice-Treviso airport system, which with more than 10.5 million passengers in 2012 is the third largest Italian airport after Rome and Milan.
Through coordinated management of the two airports, it is possible to develop their potential and to provide an integrated service for the local area. In particular, Venice Marco Polo Airport is Italy's third largest intercontinental gateway with direct scheduled flights to New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dubai, Doha, Montreal, Toronto and (as of April 2014) Tokyo.
The growth plan for Venice Airport involves:
- The creation of operating bases by carriers with an extensive network of domestic and international destinations
- Developing daily and weekly flights from Venice to the major European hubs in order to provide rapid connections to destinations worldwide
- Starting up new non-stop flights for destinations with high traffic potential
- Boosting direct long-haul connections so as to offer an extensive service to distant destinations via intercontinental hubs.
