Palermo Airport History
There is an interesting story behind how the airport was named Falcone-Borsellino Airport. Two judges named Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino were killed by the mafia (Cosa Nostra) in 1992 for their stance against local crime.
In honour of both men a plaque was erected which features their portrait. It can be found at the entrance of the Departure area. On the plaque the words “The Pride of the New Sicily” are written.
An information area can be found on the 1st floor of the airport. Getting a taxi into the city will take about forty minutes. Expect to pay between thirty five and forty euro for this.
