Some newspaper headline could imply the worst. Certainly the Lugano Airport situation is complex and deserves the utmost attention. However, we would like to point out one very important thing: Lugano Airport is open and has never closed its doors.
What will happen, in all likelihood, is a transition from public to private management of the airport: the new “Call for expression of interest” goes in this direction. The goal is to support the continuity and development of the airport, opening the management to private investors. The facility will also have to open up to commercial aviation (including scheduled flights), compatibly with the evolution of aviation activities in general and market trends.
Private flights have never stopped and are indeed more active than ever at LSZA.
Our hope is to see Lugano Airport increasingly full of passengers and flights of any kind: in the meantime, private flights continue and do not stop.
