Statistics from Assaeroporti 
The airport was created in October 1926 with a 1300 meters landing runway.
In June 2016, a public opinion poll decided to no longer support the highly deficient airport with money from the government. Therefore, it has been decided that the airport's operator company will be liquidated and the licence given back to the Italian authorities which means the airport will be shut down entirely if no other operator is found.
South Tirol spent over €120 million in recent years for the airport without attracting any lasting scheduled traffic. Darwin Airline ceased their PSO-flights to Rome on behalf of Alitalia on 18 June 2015 leaving Bolzano Airport again without any scheduled commercial traffic.
