We are just a few months away from the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Salerno-Amalfi Coast airport, set for 11 July. This debut is being called an “epochal challenge” as it goes beyond the confines of an area with one Italy’s most iconic destinations - Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast - long one of the most sought-after spots particularly for North American and British visitors. 

This new airport will also bolster development potentials for neighboring areas, starting with the Cilento, a part of Campania that is certainly less well-known to foreign visitors.  So it is an unmissable opportunity, contingent upon the robust development of services and infrastructure capable of accommodating increased volumes of travellers.

And as the flight network gradually takes shape, with airlines such as easyJet, which will connect London Gatwick, Berlin and Geneva, and Volotea, which will fly from Nantes, announcing they will be using it, local administrators are faced with a pressing obligation. Territorial marketing actions are needed to promote the beauty of this little-known area. Another crucial element are new links between the airport and the surrounding area, first and foremost with Salerno’s railway station which is an ideal interchange hub for the Amalfi Coast, the Cilento and the entire coast, while a further imperative are training courses for hotel staff and the industry as a whole. 

"Considering that we are talking about 3.5 million travellers over the next 4 to 5 years, we must be ready with quality services and efficient transport," said Vincenzo De Luca, president of the Campania Region. Let's hope that good intentions translate into tangible action, rather than mere aspirations.
