History of Nicelli Airport

In 1915, when Italy entered the war, Venice became a strategic objective and, due to its evident cultural value, the need to defend it from a possible air attack was immediately clear. The French government offered some airplanes for the protection of the city and the Italian State willingly agreed to set up the garrison for the French patrol in the Bazzera camp near Mestre. However, the distance between Mestre and Venice, although reduced, did not facilitate the air intervention against the enemies, so the Navy Command, responsible for the defense of Venice, made it possible to obtain a landing strip in the Fort of S. Nicolò at the Lido.

After some works of expansion, the first nucleus of the Nicelli Airport saw the light. The airport, thanks to the activity of the company Transadriatica S.A., became in 1926 the first civil airport in Italy with flights mainly on Vienna.

Nicelli then experienced a phase of decline for the transfer of air traffic to the Treviso and Tessera airports.

Since the 90s of the twentieth century, the airport had a new vital phase, culminating in upgrading works in the inauguration of a new control tower (2008). The airport today operates mainly in the field of private and sports aviation.
