Contrary to what one may imagine, there is no airport in the Sorrentine Peninsula or even in Sorrento itself.
This does not affect the fact, that arriving by plane is easier than one may imagine and speedy transfers by other means of transport are guaranteed for reaching any point along the Sorrento or Amalfi coasts.
To resolve the “problem” of how to get to Sorrento by plane, one only has to take into consideration the nearby Naples airport, also known as Capodichino airport.
The Naples International Airport, not many kilometres from Sorrento and the sorrentine peninsula (which includes the council districts of: Massa Lubrense, Sant’Agnello, Piano di Sorrento, Meta, Vico Equense and naturally Sorrento), and from other important tourist localities such as Campi Flegrei (Pozzuoli, Cuma, Baia Felice, Capo Miseno and Bacoli), Ercolano, Pompeii, and the Amalfi coast ( including Amalfi, Ravello, Positano, Praiano, Furore, Conca dei Marini, Atrani, Maiori, Erchie, Cetara and Vietri sul Mare). Furthermore, it is strategically placed for reaching Capri, Ischia and Procida.
Naples airport is well linked to most capital cities in the world, European cities and all major Italian airports.
The principal international flight companies fly direct to Naples Capodichino airport as do many accredited charter companies on non-stop flights.
Naples Capodichino airport is well linked to Sorrento and all of the sorrentine peninsula thanks to a wide range of transport services and links which provide reasonably speedy transfers from Capodichino airport to Sorrento and naturally vice versa.
When deciding which method of transport to use between Capodichino and Sorrento (and obviously Sorrento – Capodichino) there are several possibilities to choose from according to: the availability and frequency of the method of transport which one may wish to use, the time taken to travel from Capodichino to Sorrento, comfort, the exclusiveness of the method of transport chosen, and the cost of the journey. In short, one may choose the method preferred, availability permitting.
The security systems available at Naples Capodichino airport follow the code provided by law, which determines the important security measures required for the prevention of terrorist attacks and to keep any delinquent activity under control. This security service is also made efficient by the notable presence of police officers.
In conclusion, it can be seen that whoever chooses to come to Sorrento by plane, may choose from a considerable variety of options and advantages (in number and variety) and that certainly – even if in some cases one has to make a somewhat economical sacrifice – they are time-saving and provide notable tranquillity and comfort.
