Welcome to Trieste
Trieste Airport (IATA: TRS, ICAO: LIPQ) is an Italian airport in Friuli-Venezia Giulia (and largest for the transport of people in the region itself) located in the municipality of Ronchi dei Legionari, 30 km northwest of Trieste , 21 km southwest of Gorizia, and 38 km south of Udine, along the Venezia Giulia state road 14. The structure, open to commercial traffic, is equipped with an asphalt runway 3000 m long and 45 m wide, with RWY 09-27 orientation and is managed by the company Aeroporto Friuli Venezia Giulia S.p.A. under the trade name of Trieste Airport - Friuli Venezia Giulia.
The first airport structure in the territory of Ronchi dei Legionari is the training ground of the 4th Fighter Wing in 1935. The 17th Fighter Group was stationed here from July 1943 until 8 September 1943.
In the fifties, the area was chosen as the seat of the civil airport, which began operations on 2 December 1961: a Douglas DC-3 of the Mediterranean airline company took off for Rome, inaugurating commercial connections. In 1978 the track was extended to the current 3,000 meters. The control tower that still manages the traffic of the airport was inaugurated in 1982. In 1998 the expansion and modernization works of the airport were completed, allowing a capacity of 1.5 million passengers per year. An airport is also built for the freight sector.
On 9 June 2011, the regional council approved the development of an intermodal hub that would extend within an area of 475,000 m² between the airport and the current Venice-Trieste railway line, which runs 250 meters from the terminal. On March 19, 2018, the new intermodal hub was inaugurated which consists of a new railway station called "Trieste Airport-Ronchi dei Legionari" connected to the passenger terminal via an elevated walkway 425 meters long. A new bus and coach station equipped with 16 stalls, a multi-storey car park with 500 seats and a ground level car park with 1000 seats.
