Car Hire Catania Airport

Catania Airport is situated to the south-west of Catania, the 2nd largest city in Italian island of Sicily. This modern airport was named after a great opera composer named Vincenzo Bellini. The airport’s official name is Catania-Vincenzo Bellini Airport. The airport lies in close proximity to the city of Catania and is regarded as the main gateway to the east coast of Sicily. A19 and E45 are the main motorways that link the airport to Palermo, Syracuse and Sicily. All the domestic and international arrivals and departures from the Catania Airport are handled within a single double storey terminal building.

The airport is the busiest in Sicily and is the 6th busiest in the entire Italy. It also ranks as the 3rd in terms of domestic traffic. It is also the busiest when it comes to cargo handling due to its strategic location to the Mediterranean as well as the port. This is one of those airports that have been screened and certified to handle dangerous goods. It boasts of its cargo infrastructure that includes short term storage warehouse, export services, import services, and refrigerated storage areas.

There are various transport options available to passengers at the airport. There are various car rental companies at Catania Airport as well as others in areas of Sicily. Driving is pleasurable within Sicily due to its superb road infrastructure. The roads are well marked and are four to six lanes wide. It is highly recommendable that drivers adhere to the traffic laws since these are taken seriously at Sicily and if not cautious one may end up paying hefty fines.

Car hire are another option to passengers. There are taxi ranks located outside the airport, the train station, main city plazas, and bus stations. One can also call ahead for a taxi. It is normally common for drivers of the taxis to charge according to the number of people in the taxi. This however should not be the case. You pay for the whole taxi and not the number of people in it. Taxis are normally the most expensive mode of transportation but provide a more convenient and reliable service. It is ideal for those who have a lot of luggage with them.

Car rental is the best option. There are various public rental buses that serve Catania airport. Some of the buses leave every half and hour for the port. A bus that goes directly from the airport to Messina port usually takes approximately 90 minutes and will cost 4 euros for only one way. Other local buses are available and leave from the railway station. These normally take at least 2 hours if they use inner roads. Travelers may also use a train to get to Messina.
