Summer is peak travel time to LIRN
Naples International Airport is a very busy airport on the outskirts of Naples. In 2018, it handled just under 10 million passengers. Big commercial planes fly in and out, but the best view of the coastal city is from a private jet.
The airport has two terminal buildings. Terminal 1 is used for all commercial flights. Terminal 2 is the general aviation terminal that is used for private jets and charters.
Italy is a popular destination year round but air traffic, especially general aviation movements, soars during the peak summer months of June through August.
When chartering a private jet to Naples International in the summer, it is strongly urged that you do your flight planning and notifications as far in advance as possible. You’ll get your best flight and service options by doing so.
The peak vacation time in the southern part of Italy is when the most visitors rent private jets to Naples and other Mediterranean cities such as Bari, Catania, Palermo, Reggio Calabria, Olbia and Cagliari on Italy’s mainland and its islands.
Tips for chartering a jet into Naples
A PPR (prior permission required) is needed and there is a maximum of two hours on the ground unless a parking extension is requested. Normal handling hours at LIRN are 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. but landings and takeoffs can be made at any time upon request.
In the summer, especially on the weekends, private jets should provide at least 24 hours’ notice. Short-term requests for ground handling, fuel or service might encounter delays. If you have special requests or need special arrangements, keep in mind that FBO ground handlers are very busy in peak season and the more notice, the better.
Non-European Union pilots flying chartered private jets into Naples need landing permits. An important thing to know is that the Italian Civil Aviation Authority, which processes the permits, is closed on the weekends.
The lead time for charter permits for private jets that seat fewer than 20 passengers is 10 business days – as long as all the paperwork is in order. Permits can be obtained for a one-time use or for a 12-month period. The Foreign Operators Questionnaire is no longer required for private jets that seat fewer than 20 passengers.
It is also advisable to pre-book fuel uplifts in order to avoid departure delays. At busy airports like Naples, it’s a good idea to fuel on arrival in order to avoid departure delays.
In-flight catering should be requested 24 to 48 hours in advance, especially if planning to depart on a weekend. Requests for specialty international cuisine may cause delays because caterers are also busy during the high summer season.
Naples International Airport history
As were many European airports, Naples Airport was used as a military airport shortly after opening. It was first used in 1910. Then, in World War I, it was used as a military base to defend against attacks by Germans and Austro-Hungarians.
During World War II, the United States Armed Forces took over the airport after Italy declared war against England and France.
The airport returned to a civilian airport and commercial traffic began in 1950. Its strategic location makes it the perfect gateway into Naples and the entire Bay of Naples area for private and business jet travelers who want quick access to the city.
It is easy to get by car into the center of the city or Italy’s many attractions such as Mount Vesuvius and the ancient city of Pompeii.

Naples is grand – and old
In 1995, Naples – founded in 600 B.C. -- was listed by the United Nations, UNESCO, as a World Heritage Site, a site of outstanding cultural or natural importance to the “common heritage of mankind.” The achievement noted that “Naples is one of the most ancient cities in Europe, whose contemporary urban fabric preserves the elements of its long and eventful history. The rectangular grid layout of the ancient Greek foundation of Neapolis is still discernible and has indeed continued to provide the basic form for the present-day urban fabric of the Historic Centre of Naples, one of the foremost Mediterranean port cities. From the Middle Ages to the 18th century, Naples was a focal point in terms of art and architecture, expressed in its ancient forts, the royal ensembles such as the Royal Palace of 1600, and the palaces and churches sponsored by the noble families.”
The city is situated between the volcanic regions of Mount Vesuvius and the Phlegraean Fields on the Gulf of Naples. The Roman ruins of Pompeii and other cities that were destroyed in the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. are nearby. It rises from sea level to 1,480 feet. The islands of Procida, Capri and Ischia are easily accessible from Naples by boat.
It is just north of Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. It is just south of the port towns of Pozzuoli and Baia.
It is the third largest city in Italy. This is how it’s ranked in the five largest Italian cities:
- Rome – population 3 million
- Milan -- population 1.3 million
- Naples – population 966,000
- Turin – population 883,000
- Palermo -- population 668,000
Here are some of the best places to see and learn about the history of Naples:
- Museo Cappella Sansevero
- Bourbon Tunnel and underground routes of the city
- Gesu Nuovo Church
- Teatro di San Carlo
- Catacombe Di San Guadioso
- Certosa e Museo di San Martino
- National Archaeological Museum of Naples
And, about that pizza …
The way Neapolitan cuisine became synonymous with pizza is an interesting story that starts with a queen.
Flatbreads with toppings, a staple of the working poor, were not just eaten by Romans. They were also a common dish of ancient Egyptians and Greeks.
However, the pizza we are familiar with today – a flatbread laden with tomatoes and cheese – was actually a favorite of Queen Margherita, who, in 1889, came to Naples with her husband, King Umberto I, after Italy was unified.
After tiring of meal upon meal of fancy Italian dishes, the queen asked for a variety of pizzas from the city’s Pizzeria Brandi, the successor to Da Pietro pizzeria, which was founded in 1760.
The kind she liked the best? Pizza Mozzarella. Topped with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil (coincidentally, the colors of the Italian flag).
Pizza remained little known beyond Naples until the 1940s when it was seemingly discovered by the world.
