Marina di Campo Airport is the airport of the Italian island of Elba, located in the area of "La Pila", in Marina di Campo. It is also known as Teseo Tesei Airport . It is the third airport of Tuscany in terms of passengers after Pisa International Airport and Florence Airport and serves as a focus city of Silver Air.
Opened as a grass airstrip in 1963, the airport was taken over by Milan-based company Transair in 1966 and was developed to handle commercial traffic, with regional airline Transavio flying Britten-Norman Islanders and Piaggio P.166 aircraft to Pisa, Milan and Florence, although a tarmac runway was not opened until 1991. Transavio folded in 1990, but several other regional airlines including InterSky, Silver Air and Air Alps started operations in the following years. A new terminal was opened in 2013, with the old building remaining as a cafeteria, shopping centre and offices.
