About Riviera Airport
Riviera Airport looks back on nearly a century-old history of Italian aviation. Established in 1922 and named after the Italian fighter pilot “Clemente Panero”, the runway at Villanova d’Albenga was variously used for military, industrial and civil purposes. To date, the Riviera Airport is the home port of Piaggio Aerospace, Italy’s most important aircraft manufacturer in Italy. Apart from this, the airport is used exclusively to handle general and business aviation. The 1.5 km long runway can be used by aircraft with a take-off weight of up to 60 tonnes and offers private jets of all classes an interesting alternative to the overcrowded airports beyond the Italian border. Monte-Carlo can be reached in less than an hour by motorway, while a helicopter operator offers a 20-minute shuttle flight from the runway to the Principality. The sandy beaches of Alassio, the nearby golf course of Garlenda and the beauty of the Ligurian coastlines and mountains invite passengers and crew to explore and to rest. Riviera Airport is managed by AVA SpA, which is owned at 99.5% by Aeropolis SpA.
