Naples International Airport, officially known as Ugo Niutta, is Naples’ primary aerial hub. Located 6km (almost 4 miles) north-east of the city centre, it comprises two terminal buildings – one for passengers and another for charter operations.
Generally well-organised and efficient, public transport to and from Naples International is bountiful. However avoid the many unlicensed drivers who attempt to pick up travellers and charge them exorbitant prices. Licensed taxis are highly visible and display a list of fixed rates inside their vehicles. By the end of 2011, though, passengers will also have the opportunity to travel to and from Naples International via train, as a new railway line connecting the airport to the city is scheduled for completion by the end of the year.
As with most airports, Naples International can get chaotic at times. However, it’s generally a quick process getting in and out of the airport, and amenities are clean and adequate. Staff speak little English, but they are usually friendly and try their best to assist non-Italian speaking passengers.
