Genoa Airport (IATA: GOA, ICAO: LIMJ) (Italian: Aeroporto di Genova) also named Christopher Columbus Airport ("Aeroporto Cristoforo Colombo" in Italian) (Italian pronunciation: [kri'st?:foro ko'lombo]), and commonly named Aeroporto di Genova-Sestri Ponente (Genoa-Sestri Ponente Airport, after the city district where it is located) is an international airport built on an artificial peninsula, 4 NM (7.4 km; 4.6 mi) west[1] of Genoa, Italy.


The airport is the most important one of Liguria and it serves the city and Port of Genoa, as well as considerable population in Southern Piedmont (Asti and Alessandria Provinces, Southern areas of Cuneo Province). In 2018, with 1,455,626 passengers having passed through the airport,[3] Genoa is the 21st busiest Italian airport by passenger traffic. The Spanish low-cost airline Volotea operates one of its four bases in Italy in Genoa Airport.

It is currently operated by Aeroporto di Genova S.P.A., which has recently upgraded the airport complex. The airport is named after the notable Genoese navigator and explorer Christopher Columbus. The airport is also the manufacturing base for Piaggio Aerospace, an Italian aircraft design and production company.
