Palermo Airport is also known as Punta Raisi Airport or Falcone-Borsellino Airport. The last name refers to two anti-mafia judges who were assassinated in 1992, they were honored with a commemorative plate at the entrance of the Departures Hall with the inscription “Giovanni Falcone – Paolo Borsellino – Gli Altri – L’orgoglio della Nuova Sicilia”. The last part means ‘proud of a new Sicily’.

History

Palermo Airport came into being in 1953, when a site was chosen at Punta Raisi. Built at the cost of more than five million Italian Lira, the airport finally opened its doors for business in 1960, comprising two runways and basic facilities. Although the terminal building was planned back in the 1960s, it was actually built many years later and was inaugurated in the early 1990s, when passenger levels soared.
