History

Trieste International Airport was originally built in 1957 to serve the Trieste-Capodistria region. The airport was located somewhat close to Koper, but not too far away from Trieste city. It was in the 1960s that the airport began to get its nickname, the “Hub of Europe”. The Airport was expanded and redesigned in 1966, giving it an extremely modern design; this expansion led to more routes globally. In 1971 a rail station was added here, with train service to all over Europe. Being in the center of Europe has had benefits for the airport. It is a gateway to Eastern Europe and Asia, and from the other side a gateway to Western Europe and North America.

Terminals

There are five terminals at the Airport; one for Domestic flights, one for European flights, one for Asian/African flights and one for the Americas.
