Sardinia Airports

Find out all of the key and useful details about the three airports that we use in Sardinia. It is worth noting, the airports in Sardinia are generally functional operations, so you may not have the same extensive range of shops and restaurants that you would expect to find at UK Airports.

 

Alghero Airport

Alghero Airport, also known as Fertilia Airport, is nearly five miles northwest of the city of Alghero. It’s accessible by car via the SS291 and SP44 motorways or there are regular shuttle buses that operate from Alghero and other prominent cities on the island to the airport.

Special Assistance: There are ‘Assistance Request Points’ available at the airport and each station is equipped with an entry phone. Operators at the other end will arrange assistance for passengers accordingly. These are located outside of the terminal entrances on the pedestrian sidewalk and near the car park payment counter. 

On arrival: On arrival at Alghero Airport, you will walk from the aircraft to the terminal building. Once you have passed through passport control and collected your luggage you will then see a ‘Sardinian Places’ representative on your exit from the baggage hall. They can assist with any questions or if you have arranged transport through us, they will direct you to the transfer vehicle or Hertz car hire desk.​
