While its runway is being resurfaced Milan Linate has been closed to all general and commercial air traffic. However, Milan Malpensa and Bergamo Orio al Serio are great alternatives to fly in and out of if you’re visiting Italy’s design and fashion capital and the surrounding Lombardy region.
The temporary closure of Linate comes just as Milan Malpensa opened its state-of-the-art general and business aviation terminal, Milano Prime. It features five exclusive lounges and is equipped with meeting rooms as well as limousine and concierge services. It also offers a 5,000 square-metre hangar to accommodate the latest- and next-generation of aircraft.
Bergamo is also making huge investments of up to €450 million as part of its 2030 development project. And with a number of high-end resorts and luxury retreats located just east of Milan, the airport plans to invest in improved facilities to satisfy the rising demand for business and general aviation flights.
And with the Italian Grand Prix and Milan Fashion Week both taking place in September the two airports are ideally situated to access both Monza’s racing circuit and Milan’s city centre by road or rail.
