History

"We have been offering ground handling services in Italian military and civilian Airports for 60 years, and we have also provided

our services at England’s Heathrow Airport since 2012.

The Alisud Group-GH was built, generation after generation, through the dedication of the people who have worked diligently,

day after day, to offer you the best in ground handling services. Underlying our work is our experience, professionalism, and

the desire to guarantee the highest level of quality and efficiency possible.”

 

Our history began in the 1950s with the creation of Alisud CAM - Compagnia Aerea Meridionale, a small airline company which

provided transportation to and from Naples and the islands of the Tyrrhennian Sea using hydrofoils for the minor islands and

the DC4 Carver - which was able to transport vehicles along with passengers - for the larger islands.

At the end of the 1950s, Alisud expanded its activities into the aerial photography field, an activity we continued to provide until

2002.

In 1960, Alisud CAM began its ground handling activities at the Naples Capodichino Airport where it was the only handler until

1968.

From 1969 to 1986, we provided the same type of handling services in Sicily, at the Catania and Palermo airports.

In 1972, we began our cargo and passenger ground handling activities at the American military base in Naples and in 1976

at the Sigonella military installation.

During the 1980s and ’90s, we continued provide handling services at various military airports, adding other activities such

as Business Travel services, Tour Operator services and Travel Agencies. 

In 2001, we began providing Ticketing services at the Naples Capodichino Airport; today, we offer the same services in the airports

of Naples, Catania, Palermo, Bari, Brindisi, Cagliari, Florence, Venice, Bologna, Verona, Turin and London Heathrow.
