Flying to Milan is really easy because it is one of the best known cities in Italy, but at the same time if you do not know the area, you might have some trouble choosing the best place to fly to. There are three different airports in Milan: Milan Malpensa, Milan Linate and Orio al Serio.
All of the airports in Milan are connected by bus and they can be reached from the city center with all kinds of public transportations.
Milan Malpensa Airport
Milan Malpensa is considered the largest airport in Milan and Italy as far as international flights are concerned and it is the second busiest airport in our country.
It has two separate terminals (terminal 1 and terminal 2) connected by free shuttle buses (back and forth every 7 minutes).
Terminal 1 is the more prominent terminal, it is bigger than terminal 2 and it is used as a base by many airline companies such as United Airlines, Alitalia, Emirates, Meridiana, Delta, etc.
Terminal 2 is a “low cost terminal” in which only EasyJet operates with more than 100 destinations all over Europe.
Private and public Transfers
Milan Malpensa is located 55 km away from the city of Milan, but you can get to/from the city center to/from the airport by train. It is called “Malpensa Express” and it takes 45 minutes only from/to the airport to/from Cadorna station, in the heart of the city.
Other public transportations available are buses or cabs.
The easist, safest, fastest and most comfortable way is to book a service car with us. A driver will be waiting for you at the airport as soon as you land and the prices are sometimes cheaper than regular cabs, look here.
