History

The airport was built during the early 1920s and became the base of the Italian Regia Aeronautica with Palermo as the headquarters of the 4th Aerial Zone. After being seized by Allied forces during the Invasion of Sicily (Operation Husky) in July 1943, it was used by the United States Army Air Forces Twelfth Air Force as a combat airfield. The 52d Fighter Group flew Supermarine Spitfires from the airport from the end of July until December 1943. It was turned back over to Italian authorities after the Americans advanced north into Italy.

After the war, it was Palermo's main airport and the third busiest in Italy. 1960 saw the opening of Palermo International Airport 33  km west of the city; it was also called Punta Raisi Airport. The original site was under joint military–civil use until 1 January 2009, when the Italian aviation authority ENAC acquired sole use of the airport.
