Latest Update from Lugano Airport:

03/05/12 - Despite losing half of its operators, Lugano Airport is still alive and kicking. Plans have just begun to extend the runway allowing larger jets to take off and land whilst a new terminal will be completed in the next two years to completely replace the current ageing and inadequate one. Watch out for some disruption during the period of construction.

05/06/13 - The airport is now focusing on business flights and has extended the apron to accommodate more aircraft. The runway extension is still ongoing and whilst the first phase is complete, the full extension won't be in operation until 2014.

There are a number of reasons for visiting Lugano and the main one has to be its lake. Partly in Switzerland and partly in Italy, it is the centre for much tourist activity in the area including over 300kms of marked mountain bike trails.

Lugano itself is beautiful, especially the old town which has 17 places of national historical importance including the St Lawrence Cathedral. If you’ve hired a car from Lugano Airport you can explore outside of Lugano where a popular activity is to take the funicular railway up to the top of Mount Brè for spectacular views out over Lugano and the region.
