Riviera Airport , also known as Albenga Airport , is in northwest Italy, in the region of Liguria. It is on the Italian Riviera between Savona and Imperia, approximately seven kilometres west of the town of Albenga, in the community of Villanova d’Albenga.
Riviera Airport is mainly used for general aviation in the Northern Mediterranean, with international travel and transport facilitated by the presence of Italian Customs. The airport is also used by the Italian aeroplane manufacturer Piaggio Aerospace. The runway, measuring ca. 1,500 metres in length, can be used by aircraft up to 60 tonnes of maximum take-off weight. Riviera Airport is well connected to all financial and tourist centres on the Italian and French Riviera by means of highway A10 and the Via Aurelia . While Monte-Carlo is less than an hour's travel by car, a helicopter company based at the airport can connect passengers from the runway directly to the Principality of Monaco in less than 20 minutes. Due to its Mediterranean surroundings and tourist attractions, the Aeroporto Villanova d´Albenga has always been known in its home region as Riviera Airport.
