The Italian Authorities said on Thursday it would re-open two of its shuttered airports next week, Ciampino in Rome and Peretola in Florence.
The two airports will reopen on May 4 for passenger flights, the transport ministry said in a brief statement.
Ciampino is Rome’s secondary airport and is mostly used by low-cost carriers, while Peretola is Tuscany’s second-largest airport after Pisa.
Italy’s current coronavirus lockdown expires on May 4, when many restrictions remain but more people are expected to head back to work and travel within regions will be allowed under some circumstances.
The two airports have been shut to passenger flights since March 13. Over a series of weeks, more businesses will be allowed to re-opened the ministry said.
