The truth about Comiso Airport, since the beginning of the year, was a minus Comiso

Comiso – It is true that this summer the Civil Airport of Comiso recorded a double-digit increase in the number of passengers compared to the three summer months of 2019, but only among them. If you look at the data from the beginning of 2022, based on the calculations of Assaroporti (table attached to the photo), Ragusa airport has not yet balanced its accounts with pre-pandemic. Minor airports such as Trapani (which rises to + 260% by skimming international flights) recorded real exploitation even outside Sicily, above all Perugia (+ 239%) and Cuneo (+ 221%). This is because compared to the big ones, they lose more on lower costs, which has seen a surge in bookings this year.

Except that now Ryanair (along with sister company Malta Air) stops at “Pio La Torre”, while EasyJet, Wizz Air and Volotia also land and take off at other airports. On the island, Palermo and Lampedusa are flying to a plus sign, while only Comiso is minus with its “sister” Catania, despite the dazzling results shown by Zack last month and a lot of money invested in the port of Etna. The most negative airport of all time compared to three years ago is that of Treviso (-75%): Canova, connecting to Comiso from next October 30, is taken over from Venice and others are canceled or cut. By Irish Company.

Last available Comisan flights to and from Bergamo, Malpensa, Bologna and Comiso are currently being sold online for €16.98. But the traffic volume recorded on the island since January – about 20 million passengers – loses comparison with those managed by other direct tourist competitors in the Mediterranean, first of all, Malta and the Balearics: Sant Joan, son of the small Palma de Mallorca, intercepts 32 million passengers annually, Valletta airport controls about 6; In summer, Greece recorded higher flows than the island.
