Brindisi Airport Car Hire
Brindisi Airport (sometimes referred to as Salento Airport) is a major entry point for those heading for Puglia in Southern Italy. It is reliant on the summer tourist traffic and, as the smaller of the region's two airports, it can struggle at peak times when operating at capacity.

Brindisi Airport Top Tips
- As already stated, Brindisi Airport is a modest operation and when a number of planes land at the same time (which tour operators tend to aim for as this allows them to operate their transfer systems effectively) car hire desk queues can build up. Send the driver on ahead to deal with the paperwork whilst the rest of the party collect the bags (making sure to leave any luggage receipts with them in case one has gone astray and needs reporting).
- The Brindisi Airport website provides flight and other local information if you require it.
