There are numerous flights within Italy. Of the many passengers who fly internally, would most be businesspeople, VFR or pure tourists? Would most routes get a nice mix of all three of those?

What type of person (of those three types above) would fly from Sardinia to the mainland? Would the demand for those flights be more seasonal, or year-round?

I believe that Sardinians get some sort of lower fare to the mainland. Is this correct? How does it work?

I have only flown FCO-VCE so far.

Quoting Pe@rson (Thread starter):

Myself for one....But most of the "mainlanders" I saw in Sardinia came over with their automobiles on one of the ferries.
During the winter the Island slows way down....
Last observation, most visitors appear to be from the north of Italy.

I believe so...similar to Hawaiians within Hawaii....

Sardaigne is not that neglected Pe@rson !!! Of course there is strong economic ties with the main land and the daily flights between Cagliari,Alghero,Olbia and FCO,MXP...are not accessories. It is evident then that tourism is important for the island.

the domestic flights within Italy see a mix of several types of travellers.
trunk routes like LIN/FCO, LIN/NAP, FCO/TRN, FCO/PMO, FCO, CTA, FCO/VCE see a majority of business travellers, especially commuting on a daily basis (first flight in the morning, last flight in the evening).
most routes north to south have a huge VFR traffic along with businessmen.
of course there's a huge market for leisure and tourism, with Rome/Florence/Venice/Naples as the major airports from where to continue exploring our wonderful country.
furthermore the presence of several LCC, including brand-new Blue Express, which flies 3 times a day between MXP and FCO with fares starting at Eur9.99 one way, along with the prospected new domestic network proposed by EasyJet and Ryanair, make it very very easy, and cheap, to fly domestically, also considering that the longest flight, Milan to Catania, is only 90 minutes long (well, Milan to Lampedusa is actually the longest non-stop, but is only a seasonal flight, in summer, and that's less than 2 hours), with an average of less than 1 hours on most routes (Rome is right at the center of Italy, a sort of hub and spoke network).
