Naples Airport (NAP)
History, Facts and Overview
Although planes have been known around the skies of Naples since the early twenties, Capodichino International Airport did not come into being until the Second World War. Soon after, the Pascale Brothers began manufacturing light aircraft here, including the P48B Astore, and the commercial side of Capodichino International Airport (NAP) started to expand, causing the need for many expansions and improvements over the years to come. Today, operations are managed by GESAC S.p.a. - a subsidiary of BAA.
There are countless amenities offered by Naples Capodichino Airport, such as currency exchange, cash machines (ATMs), the Telelink Internet Centre and an extensive food and beverage area, where passengers and visitors are able to enjoy an array of different cuisines. Many of the main eateries are located within the shopping arcade, the boarding area and outside of Terminal 1.
The Ciao restaurant is especially popular and is self-service, while for fast-food, Burger King is hard to beat. Those looking for a little gourmet dining should take time out to sample the dishes at the Oro di Napoli restaurant, which is open daily between 05:30 and 21:00.
