In the area known as "Campo di Marte", the district of Capodichino hosted in 1910 the first flight exhibitions in Naples. "Campo di Marte" became a military airport during the First World War in order to defend the town against German and Austro-Hungarian air attacks. Capodichino Airport was a military air base during the Fascist era and the Second World War. The airport was used extensively by the United States army air forces during the Second World War for the Italian Campaign. It was used as a combat airfield by the Twelfth Air Force who stationed fighting units at the airport. These combat units later moved out and the airport was used as a major transshipment hub for cargo and transiting aircraft and people during the remainder of the war. Commercial air traffic began in the year 1950 and in 1980 an organization "Gestione Servizi Aeroporto Capodichino" was established to administer the airport. In 1995, the organization now reformed drew up a new master plan which marked the beginning of a twenty years development plan.
