well before World War II, with its runway
built by the Armed Forces Administration,
the airport in Brindisi
virtually takes off with Ala Littoria, a
carrier who regularly flew to Rome.
After a decade Alitalia takes over the same
route, also linking Catania to Brindisi,
During the Nineteen–Eighties all structures
are radically modernized, also building
new offices and premises, like the new Fire
Station, and a new cargo area.
Brindisi airport serves not only the entire
province of Brindisi, but also the ones
of Taranto (partly) and Lecce.
