Aircraft ground support at Venice Marco Polo Airport, supporting trips throughout Italy and Croatia

Lorena Carraro

Welcome to Italy!

There is one word I would like our customers to use when describing their experiences with Universal Aviation Italy – Venice, and that word is perfect!

As the very first company in Italy dedicated to business and general aviation, we continue to lead the way in our market. I believe this success is due to the fact that we always listen to our customers and offer flexibility and loyalty in our approach.

My team is extremely motivated to maintain the high standards for which we are renowned, and to keep our ground handling and VIP services sleek, efficient, and professional.

Our main facilities are located at Milan Linate, Milan Malpensa, and Rome Ciampino. Additionally, 2012 has seen the opening of our brand-new VIP facility at Venice Marco Polo. Whatever your journey plans, we can coordinate your travel across Italy and Croatia, and when your business day is over, we can even organize your leisure time, booking tours, theater tickets, and concert tickets.

A warm welcome awaits you on your next visit.
