How to get to the city from Brindisi airport

This is a collaboration between Trenitalia and the Brindisi public transport service, with the support of the Puglia Region.
With this new project it will be very easy to reach the city of Brindisi if you land at the Salento airport (Brindisi).
You can also easily reach the cities of Bari, Lecce and Taranto.
In fact, integrated travel solutions have also been included to reach the most beautiful cities of Puglia.
It is a transport service that combines two travel solutions: train + bus (totally sustainable).
Here are the new travel solutions that have been included to allow the movement to and from the Salento airport to other cities:
- 37 integrated travel solutions per day that will allow you to move to and from Lecce
