Sicily has four international airports that are served by various UK airlines and terminals, so there’s no shortage of options when it comes to booking your flight.
There are numerous direct flights to Sicily from the UK. The most popular airport to fly into is Catania–Fontanarossa (CTA), which is located just outside the city of Catania in eastern Sicily, near Mount Etna.
British Airways, Norwegian Airlines and TUI Airways fly here from London Gatwick (LGW) in summer, and easyJet covers the route year-round. TUI also has summer services to Catania from Manchester (MAN) and Birmingham (BHX), while easyJet has a summer schedule from London Luton (LTN), Manchester and Bristol (BRS).
In the northwest, Palermo’s Falcone–Borsellino Airport (PMO; formerly Punta Raisi) welcomes easyJet flights from Gatwick daily between April and October, and twice a week otherwise. Ryanair also flies here daily from London Stansted (STN) in summer, plus four times a week during winter, while British Airways has Saturday and Tuesday flights from London Heathrow (LHR).
Sicily’s two lost-cost hubs are Comiso Airport (CIY), a relatively new gateway to the southeast, and Trapani Birgi (TPS) in the northwest. No UK carriers currently serve Trapani, but Ryanair flies to Comiso between March and November.
Flights to Sicily’s airports take three hours on average. Catania and Palermo’s airports are the most extensive in terms of facilities and shopping.
