At the airport


Trieste airport has two cafes and one self-serving restaurant where you can grab a drink, snack, and most importantly, a chair, when waiting for your flight.

You can find some merchandise and a small duty-free shop as well, but don’t expect the facilities usually afforded by the large airports around the world. If you usually grab a gift for your loved ones at the airport, maybe you will be disappointed you did not do that before.


European airport security might not be as stringent as in the US, but remember, Trieste is international airport, and you should expect lengthy security protocol queues when a few flights overlap. It is a small airport, but keep in mind that late arrival to controls area can result in missing the flight.

Airlines have their own baggage rules, but remember, some rules are universal. Don’t try to bring liquids or sharp objects onto the plane, it’ll only lead you to lose your beverage, get stalled in the queue, or in the worst case, have to explain yourself to busy security checkpoint staff.

When to arrive

For any international flight departing from Trieste Airport, make sure to arrive at least 2 hours before your flight for check-in. If your airline allows you to check in online, that might save you time in the queue, but you’re better off arriving early and having a cup of famous Italian coffee than rushing through the airport trying to chase down a closing gate.

Frequently asked questions

Can I buy my ticket to Trieste Airport from the Nomago InterCity driver?

It is possible to buy the tickets directly in the bus, but be advised that the transfer bus may arrive full. We strongly recommend you purchase your tickets well in advance to reserve your seats. You can also download the Nomago mobile app and purchase your tickets there, so that you avoid printing and carrying physical tickets (just be sure to have some power left in your phone as you’re ready to board).

What happens if my flight is canceled after I already purchased transfer tickets?

Your airline or travel insurance should do the reimbursement for your transfer ticket costs.

I’m heading to the airport to catch a flight. Which transfer should I take?

You should always aim to take a bus which will arrive at the airport no less than 3 hours before your flight. The highways passing Venice Airport are busy with traffic and often a minor traffic accident can cause a 1-hour road delay. That still leaves you with the mandatory 2 hours before your flight.

I have a different question or problem with my transfer.
