Hide routes

Airlines including Ryanair have discovered the commercial benefits of flying to Cuneo – a modern airport attractively positioned in Italy's third largest province, just below the Maritime Alps and still near the Mediterranean coast.

Italy's big inbound tourism opportunity: Alpine scenery, historic townships, rolling vineyards, world heritage sites and ski resorts are big draw cards for tourists to the Cuneo Province and the Maritime Alps, which are relatively undiscovered. Barolo in Cuneo is one of the most popular wine tourism destinations – famous for its reds – and the much-publicised slow food movement originated in nearby Bra.

Other major reasons to serve this airport

  • Competitive airport fees and charges
  • 470,000 registered companies within 60 minutes of the airport
  • Wealthy market in the catchment area with high propensity to travel (one of the highest percentage of employments in the country)
  • A gateway to one of the most touristic areas in the country. It offers opportunities for all-season activities just 40 minutes from the airport:  from a city break to seaside holiday and eco-tourism. In Cuneo Province, you can find Langhe and Roero hills, a unique landscape strongly characterised by its vineyards.

Bordering France and Switzerland, Cuneo has a huge catchment area of over 4 million people. It is also a major industrial and agricultural centre and a base for Ferrero, the world-famous chocolatier. In February, Cuneo hosts the Festa del Cioccolato (annual Chocolate Festival) and is renowned for rum-filled chocolates.

Catchment Area

Cuneo Airport’s geographical catchment area reaches into two north-west Italian regions and also includes the south-east France area. This very large catchment area with around 4,000,000 inhabitants is highly productive in terms of agriculture and industry. Small and medium-sized companies are prevalent here, as well as the automotive sector.

Under-served freight opportunities and other economic impact factors

Cuneo province has one of the largest production markets in Italy. It is the main commercial and industrial centre of the region, with many major Italian factories located within its provincial boundaries, including Ferrero, Burgo, Vestebene, Valeo and automotive companies.

Cuneo is well connected by rail to Turin, also in the Piedmont region, and Genoa on the coast. It is also at one end of the famously scenic Cuneo-Ventimiglia-Nice train line, a popular tourist attraction.
