Venice-Lido welcomes its first business jet

PC-24 lands on the grass runway



The Pilatus PC-24’s outstanding performance on short and unpaved runways has enabled it to become the first business jet to land on the grass runway at Venice-Lido city airport.

The airport is located about three kilometres east of the city centre on the Lido di Venezia. The PC-24 landed safely on (grass) runway 05/23 which is just under 1000 metres.

The combination of high cruising speed and ability to use short strips - even unpaved runways - delivers a new level of mobility and flexibility, opening up a myriad of new possibilities. The PC-24 can access almost twice as many airfields worldwide compared to other business jets, thus flying closer to its final destination and avoiding the formalities at large airports.

The current fleet of over 100 PC-24s flies countless missions daily on every continent: as a medevac aircraft in Australia and Alaska, for example, as a business jet in the USA and for a German automobile manufacturer, as a government aircraft in South Africa and also for the Swiss government.
