Share

View of the airport of Comiso (Ragusa, Sicily)The airport of Comiso (CIY) is a new air terminal in Sicily (opening: May/June 2013), in the southeastern part of the island, in the area of Ragusa. Thanks to its position this airport is a good landing base for those that are looking for a beach holiday along the southern coast of Sicily (e.g. Sampieri, Marina di Ragusa, Scoglitti), for a cultural tour among the baroque Unesco world heritages (Noto, Ragusa, Modica, Scicli) or to explore the location of famous sicilian film ad tv serials like inspector Montalbano. The airport of Comiso is far about 1 hour by car from the Catania Fontanarossa airport and is a good alternative for clow-cost airlines. During the eruptions of mount Etna it can also be a substitutive destination if the airport of Catania is closed.
