Catania-Vincenzo Bellini Airport ( ) is located 2.3 NM southwest of Catania, the second largest city on the Italian island of Sicily. The airport is named after the great opera composer Vincenzo Bellini who was born in Catania.

It is the busiest airport in Sicily and the 6th busiest in Italy with 6,321,753 passengers in 2010, but in terms of domestic traffic it ranks at the 3rd place, after Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport and Linate Airport.

In order to cope with the increasing passengers figures, a new terminal, equipped with 22 gates and 6 loading bridges, opened on May 8, 2007 replacing the old facilities, but a further enlargement of the terminal area seems already necessary.
