We continue the theme of gastronomy as we head south to Sicily and the capital, Palermo. Sicily and Palermo in particular have a long association with fine Italian food. We land at the well equipped Falcone-Borsellino Airport. The airport was given the name Falcone–Borsellino in memory of the two leading anti-mafia judges Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino who were murdered by the mafia in 1992. A 1.90m (6ft) diameter plaque featuring their portraits can be found in a departure hall, set into a mosaic of Sicily. Created by the sicilian sculptor Tommaso Geraci, it bears the inscription Giovanni Falcone – Paolo Borsellino – The Others -The Pride of the New Sicily.
Falcone–Borsellino Airport (ICAO: LICJ) or Palermo Airport, formerly Punta Raisi Airport is located at Punta Raisi, 19 NM (35 km; 22 mi) west north-west of Palermo. It is the second Airport of Sicily in terms of passengers after Catania-Fontanarossa Airport, with 4.569.550 passengers handled in 2014.
