Trapani Travel Guide

Flights, Train & Cruise

By plane

Vincenzo Florio Airport Trapani-Birgi, also known as Trapani Airport, is served by Ryanair, Darwin Airline, Alitalia and Air One. Darwin flies to Rome and the island of Pantelleria; Air One to Milan. Ryanair operate low cost routes direct from Malta, Italy, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Poland, the UK, Ireland, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Slovakia, Sweden and Finland. Four Ryanair B737-800s are based in Trapani, meaning delays are shorter than average.

As of May 2012 the following routes are served by Ryanair:

Beauvais, Bologna, Brussels/Charleroi, Cagliari, Genoa, Girona, Hahn, Malta, Milan/Bergamo-Orio al Serio, Parma, Pisa, Rome-Ciampino, Treviso, Trieste, Turin, Verona.

Seasonal: Ancona, Billund, Cuneo, Eindhoven, Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden, Kraków, Leipzig/Halle, London-Luton, Maastricht, Memmingen, Perugia, Stockholm-Skavsta, Tampere, Valencia.

The airport is at Birgi, about 15 km from the center of Trapani. AST (Azienda Siciliana Trasporti) buses cost €4.70, leave every 45 minutes and take about 40 minutes . The last bus leaves the airport at 11:30pm in the summer months, so the latest flights miss it. An alternative is to take 25 minutes walk to the Mozia-Birgi station and get the train to Trapani for €2.25. Sometimes Ryanair attendants propose that you buy tickets for the bus on the flight. Don't even think of it – it’s much more expensive and inconvenient than AST buses.
