Just three miles from Comiso itself, and accessible easily by hire car on the road, is Comiso Airport, a recently reinvigorated transport hub that serves the city and the surrounding region. Formerly a military only facility, it now sees flights from many important European and domestic destinations, and is experiencing rapid growth as a result of the growing interest in tourism in Sicily. Paris, London and Rome are all served by cut-price airlines, and it is expected that Comiso Airport will need to expand in order to take the heat off the islands other airports.
The airport can boast an interesting history, with a military presence dating back as far as 1935. The base saw action during the Second World War when the Luftwaffe used its facilities, and was mainly destroyed by allied bombing in 1943 as the invasion of Sicily by allied forces began. Since then it has been home to a variety of USAF squadrons, as well as serving time as a base for Cruise Missiles during the Cold War period. It was developed and opened for civilian use as recently as 2013, and is now Sicily’s fourth airport.
Comiso Airport is conveniently located close to the town, and also within a few miles of the city of Ragusa, and offers access to the many attractions on the island thanks to the main SS514 and SS115 trunk roads. These major arteries in turn provide access for hire car drivers to most of the major destinations in Sicily, and the convenience makes hiring a car the best way to get around the region and to fully experience what Sicily has to offer. With many unspoilt towns and villages nearby a hire car makes it much easier to get to see the region.
