Map from Treviso Airport to Venice
Let’s get to know Treviso a little …
Treviso can be considered a small Venice, but instead of lagoon channels – properly speaking – channels are formed with river waters. Treviso was founded as a Roman city with the name of Tarvisium (which would be something like ‘bull’), and the real development of the city started around 1000, when it started to ‘receive’ several beautiful buildings and to expand in terms of population and economy. Over the years, it has become one of the most important cities of the Marca Trevigiana, having one of the first Italian universities. To this day, the city is characterized by a joyful and lively lifestyle, especially by continuous parties, cultural festivals and celebrations. Also read What to do in one day in Treviso?
After a period of crisis and various dominations, in 1339 it spontaneously donated itself to the Serenissima Repubblica (“The Most Serene Republic”), becoming part of the Republic of Venice. In the most contemporary times, Treviso is characterized by a somewhat tragic history, since it was the scene of several bombings during the world wars; several areas of the city had to be rebuilt from scratch, as they were decimated. Today, Treviso is a delightful and ideal city to be discovered on foot, even if you have little time there.
The Attractions in Treviso
By walking, we find beautiful views and a very rich architecture, well mixed with medieval and Renaissance styles, which provides a unique beauty to its Historic Center, which is surrounded by the city walls. The original, Roman, and then the walls of the medieval era , which can still be crossed through three doors: Porta Altinia, Porta Santi Quaranta and the beautiful Porta San Tommaso. The city’s buildings, like its palaces and churches, attract our eyes and deserve attention, as it is difficult to choose the most beautiful one!
Curiosities about Treviso Airport
The city’s official airport is the Treviso-Sant’Angelo Airport (district where it is located), officially called Antonio Canova International Airport, it is just 3 km away from the city center and is very well equipped (we’ll see a little of its structure below).
Aero Club of Treviso
It was born as an improvised runway to meet the needs of the Aero Club of Treviso, which needed a space to train. It obtained the status of civilian airport around the mid-1930s, but it was only in 1953, at the initiative of the local authorities, who noticed an increase in airflow, that the first civilian terminal to receive passengers was built.
Tessera Airport (Venice)
In May of the same year, they authorized the first two international flights from the airport: one to London and one to Vienna. Until the opening of Tessera Airport (Venice) in 1960, Sant’Angelo Airport was also a reference for its famous neighbor, Venice.
In 1963, the airport served as the base for the important 2nd Wing of the Italian Air Force. The military sector of the airport remained active as a headquarters until 1994. In 1996, Sant’Angelo airport entered into a partnership with the Venice Airport System, after the collaboration between Save, manager of the Venetian airport, and Aer Ter, local administrator in Treviso. The former entered the share package of the latter, with a 45% interest in shares, and the Treviso airport became the secondary airport of Venice, to which charter flights, airfreight and low cost airlines were directed, such as Ryanair flights, which started operating the first flight from Italy to London in the summer of 1998.
The Treviso Airport Passenger Terminal
Two thousand seven was a fundamental year for Treviso Airport: in February, the new and larger passenger terminal was opened, named after the famous Treviso sculptor Antonio Canova; in July of the same year, the partnership with the Venice airport was strengthened with the increase of SAVE SpA’s shares in Aer Tre S.p.A., which reached 80%. Treviso airport is the 16th airport in Italy in annual number of passengers and, also in 2007, it reached the historic mark of having received a transit of two million passengers in a single year!
The airport runway
In 2011, the runway was completely rebuilt, with the result that all flights were redirected to Venice Marco Polo airport; that same year it received the modern ILS system of 2nd operational category, which means that it was the first Italian airport to offer pilots the first runway with the central line using the famous LED lights.
Despite the renovations, the runway’s dimensions remained unchanged: 2459X45m, but the water drainage was redone, eliminating the possibility of pollution of the Sile River that runs along the runway, as well as eliminating any possible aquaplaning problem for planes arriving, departing or taxing on the runway. The air traffic control service (the control tower) and meteorology service has been owned by the renowned ENAV since June 30th, 2015, and the radar approach service is carried out by the Italian Air Force, that is: it is, indeed, a very safe airport!
Treviso Airport Structure
In terms of structure, which, as we have already mentioned, is excellent, the airport has 60 temporary parking spaces (Park A) and more than 750 surveillance spaces (Parks B, C, D, E), very close to the airport. The airport has two blocks: arrivals, with 2 baggage carts on one side and a lounge with a bar, tourist information, public transport ticket sales and car rental on the other.
