The giants of the air, from the Boeing 747 to the huge Antonov 124, are at home at Galilei Airport. Pisa Airport boasts the best runway system in central Italy after Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci, for which it operates as an alternate technical landing site.
With its 3,000-metre main runway and 2,800-metre secondary runway, Pisa Airport can handle any type of aircraft and provide short-notice assistance to several diverted all-cargo flights at the same time. Guaranties its highly reliable operations from 5.00 am to 12.00 pm, 365 days a year, and enjoys a favourable environmental condition allowing a majority of takeoffs and landings to be carried out over the sea.
Geographically, the airport is situated in a central position and is connected by road to Italy’s main productive areas. With a handling capacity of 30,000 tonnes, Galilei is the ideal airport for cargo.
The “time to market” concept is best expressed in air transport. Pisa, an uncongested airport which is, at the most, five hours’ drive from anywhere in northern Italy and from southern Italy as far as Naples, offers the best conditions to ensure timely access to markets.
The Airport is directly linked with the national motorway network through the A12 Genova-Rosignano, which connects to the A15 Parma-La Spezia, to the A11 Firenze-mare, and to the Florence-Pisa-Livorno dual carriageway.
For SAT freight traffic has a strategic value. That is why the company operates in all sectors, from “pure cargo” flights (mixed, scheduled, charter and “rubber-tyred flights”), to courier and mail flights.
SAT has obtained the ISO 9001 certification for all cargo handing services.
The automated Cargo Centre can handle the preparation and storing of two wide-body planes at the same time.
