Venetian Air Travel: The History of Venice Marco Polo Airport

Built in 1915, Venice Lido Airport initially served as a military airfield, until it opened for civil aviation in 1926. However, ever increasing demand meant that the airport no longer served capacity and so a new airport, Venice Marco Polo, was built in 1950 near Tessera, just outside of Venice on the mainland. The new Venice airport opened in 1960 and has remained in continuous operation since. In the decades that followed, the airport was modernised and renovated several times. Most recently, an entire new terminal was built in 2002 in order to cope with the increasing numbers of visitors to Venice. Today, Venice VCE is an important destination for tourists and in particular for visitors to the Biennale.
