A New Airport is Opening on the Amalfi Coast This Month

There’s nothing quite like an Italian summer: sailing through crystal blue waters, sipping on chilled limoncello, and driving down winding oceanfront roads (in a red convertible, wearing giant sunglasses and a silk headscarf, of course).

The Amalfi Coast has long embodied the languid charm of the dolce vita lifestyle. And this summer, getting there will be much easier, thanks to a new commercial airport opening in July. The Salerno Costa d’Amalfi Airport, located 20 minutes south of Salerno, is the perfect gateway for Amalfi and other towns along the southern coast. For towns on the northern end, like Sorrento, the Naples airport remains closer. Originally built as a military airport in 1926, it is now being transformed into a high-tech commercial hub designed to minimize carbon emissions and enhance energy efficiency.

A brand-new passenger terminal is scheduled for completion in 2026. In the meantime, the airport will open in mid-July with limited flight service. Here are all the new non-stop airline routes flying into the Salerno Costa d’Amalfi Airport this summer, some at exceptionally low fares.

British budget carrier EasyJet will launch new routes to Salerno in July. The inaugural flights will take off on July 11 from Milan Malpensa; July 12 from Berlin, Geneva, and Basel, Switzerland; and on July 13 from London Gatwick. The London Gatwick route will be offered twice-weekly, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, with fares starting at $45, according to EasyJet’s schedule. The Milan Malpensa route will operate three times a week, with flights on Monday, Thursday, and Sunday. Flights from Milan to Salerno in August, September, and October can be found for as low as $24. With the new airport opening this summer, planning a trip to Salerno has never been easier. Here’s why it’s worth a visit.

Volotea, a Spanish budget airline, will offer direct flights from Nantes, France, starting on July 11, and from Cagliari, Sardinia, on July 13. On September 2, Volotea will add flights from Catania (in Sicily) and Verona (in northern Italy’s Veneto region). Summer fares start around $30, according to the carrier’s website.

Later in the month, Maltese airline Universal Air will launch biweekly flights between Malta and Salerno Costa d’Amalfi Airport starting on July 25. In August, ultra low-cost carrier Ryanair will launch new routes from London Stansted, Milan Bergamo, and Turin (in northwest Italy).

For American travelers, the best way to reach the new Salerno airport for now is to fly direct to London or Milan and catch a connecting flight to the Amalfi Coast.
