Airport Terminals and Airlines

Depending on demand, there are a few more seasonal flights scheduled annually.
Airport Services and Facilities
This airport has a specific hours of operation, due to the low number of flights scheduled. Summer hours are 04.00 AM – 22.00 PM, and winter hours are 05.00 AM – 23.00 PM. Since the airport closes during the night, it is not much preferable to stay there overnight. There are hotels nearby you can explore and get a good night rest before your flight.
The airport is very small and offers only the basic services for the travelers, so besides grabbing a cup of coffee and a snack, there’s not much to do here. Hence, if you are on a long layover, it might be a good idea to step out of the airport and explore Cuneo. Cuneo is a town where you can find a lot of specialty shops, factory stores and galleries for music and art. Wine, cheese and especially chocolate are particular specialties of the region, and it is very much worth it to explore a bit beyond the airport itself.
And for a local flavor, Cuneo is famous for the Al Rhum, a dark chocolate meringue with rum filling, but there are also plenty of great gelato parlours and specialty chocolate shops to choose from. Be sure to order a strong Italian coffee to accompany your selection, and enjoy the lively cafe culture of the area. The local specialties of the Cuneo region include a variety of cheeses and cured meats, truffles from the area around Alba, and mains like gnocchi alla bava and risotto with quail. Discover local flavors and specialties at the wealth of traditional Piedmontese restaurants in Cuneo, and if you feel like something different, try one of the typical Italian or international eateries. Each of the food and drink places will be happy to offer you free Wi-Fi and would charge your mobile device.
