Milan Airports


The air traffic departing and arriving at Milan and its nearby areas leans on three airports: Malpensa, Linate and Orio al Serio.

Linate airport is the one closest to the city centre: 15 km; just 25 minutes by bus from the city center, but is second to Malpensa airport in terms of number of passengers. This is the busiest italian flight hub  for  intercontinental flights, with two terminals.

The Orio al Serio airport is the first in Italy to be served mainly by low cost airlines (notably the low cost airline Ryanair) with connections to and from Italian and European airports.

Many visitors in Milan take advantage of the proximity to Switzerland to find more flights at Lugano airport, located south of the Alps and about ten minutes drive from the city centre, and 1h15 (85 km) from the Dome.
