Systematica and ARUP for Catania Airport New Master Plan
Systematica and ARUP were selected by SAC – Società Aeroporto Catania for the development of the new master plan for Catania Fontanarossa International Airport.
Catania Fontanarossa International Airport, officially known as Vincenzo Bellini International Airport (IATA: CTA, ICAO: LICC), is the busiest airport in Sicily and the 6th busiest in Italy with over 7 million passengers/year; SAC – Società Aeroporto Catania is its operator company.
Built in 1924 and refurbished for the first time in 1950, Fontanarossa Airport was recently provided with a new terminal, equipped with 22 gates and 6 loading bridges, opened in 2007 in order to cope with the increasing passengers figures. Since 2007, the demand at Fontarossa Airport has increased and the need for new and larger transport facilities has arisen.
Systematica and ARUP are currently working on the new master plan for Fontanarossa Airport, conceiving a development plan of the Sicilian main transport hub to be implemented before 2030. The main objective of the Master Plan is the enhancement of the capacity and quality of transport services offered by Fontanarossa Airport, by planning the extension of the existing facilities and the development of a multi-modal transport system of accessibility.
