Palermo (Sicily) airport camping

Does anyone happen to know whether the campsite near to Palermo airport is still in business? My flight at the beginning of May doesn't get in until nine and I was rather hoping not to have to cycle far in the dark.

I flew in and out of Palermo airport in September. I don't know anything about a campgroud there, but I do know that the train station in the airport is very convenient, and getting the train to your destination would not be any trouble at all.

Just FYI, at the beginning of May it's just dusk around 9 pm (civil twilight at 8:30-ish, astronomical twilight at 9:40-ish) and the full moon is on May 2. (There are many sites on the web for finding sunrise/sunset times around the world.)
