Milan, city capital of fashion, design and business, is now a very popular destination, both for tourism and business trips. Its airport system consists of three main poles: Milan Linate, Milan Malpensa and Milan Bergamo Orio al Serio.
Once defined which the airports of Milan are, let’s see the characteristics of each of them to be sure to choose the one that best suits your trip, based on the proximity to the city, the types of flights and the level of comfort.
1. Milan Linate Airport
Linate (actually Aeroporto Enrico Forlanini) is the most convenient airport to travel to Milan and it is the most used by its citizens, especially by businessmen: located in the Forlanini area, just 7 km away from the city center, it sees every year the transit of about 10 million passengers. It can be reached by bus (line X73) or shuttle bus departing from Central Station, as well as by taxi. Work on a new underground line that will arrive directly to Linate is underway. You can also leave your car at the airport car parkings. Inside there are dozens of shops, bars and restaurants.

As we have seen, the three airports of Milan are well connected to the city, but for a comfortable journey you can opt for a private transfer service, designed specifically according to your needs (all types of vehicles are available, from a sedan to a luxury bus), such as the one offered by Eurocar Limousine.
