Pisa International Airport Reviews
SAT Galileo Galilei S.p.A manages Pisa International Airport, which serves the stunning rolling Tuscany and Pisa regions of Italy. Reflecting on their operator, this Italian airport is also named “Galileo Galilei Airport,” in honor of world-renowned Italian scientist and Pisa native Galileo Galilei. It is Tuscany’s popularity and sheer beauty that Pisa International Airport strives to live up to and emulate in its current operations, according to Pisa International Airport reviews.
We find from Pisa International Airport reviews that the airport was originally constructed for military service in the 1930s and 1940s. Nowadays, they still are a base for military transport aircraft and had been active during the latter period as a base for the 15th Air Force of the United States Army Air Forces.
Reviews – What People Are Saying
We were disappointed, from such a glorious history, to see the 3-star-out-of-10 rating based from 44 Pisa International Airport reviews on Airlinequality. Even if the most recent Pisa International Airport reviews were negative, people manage to say that, “Overall everything moved smoothly, the only discomfort was lack of ventilation and crowding in departure area.”
Positive Pisa International Airport reviews noted the airport’s efficient checking procedures: “Easy enough airport to use. Check-in was simple, plenty of shops and services, security was a breeze. Duty free and cafeteria area after security.”
According to Pisa International Airport reviews, the single-terminal international airport contains a “wide variety of shops, restaurants and services.” Set apart among European airports with their proud “Made in Italy” model, Pisa International Airport boasts of a Galilei Shopping Centre and shopping options right before you leave, after security.
Proudly Tuscan food and wine can also be purchased before your departure. Other than grab-and-go dining options, travellers can eat at Pisa International Airport’s bars and restaurants where you can sample the finest of Italian cuisine.

News and Awards
Pisa International Airport had been host, on the news lately, to a dubious car rental company Goldcar, “where too many readers report being hugely pressured into taking the firm’s perhaps ironically named Super Relax insurance.” However, the complaints about the car hire firm’s services had been noticeable, so authorities recommend travellers select another transportation option.
