Milan has three domestic and international airports. Recommended hotels nearby are here.

Airport  Malpensa (MXP)
A former mililtary airport, turned into one of the two main Italian hubs, Malpensa is located towards Lake Maggiore, some 50 kms from downtown.

The Malpensa Express, a special shuttle-train, runs in about 40 minutes to and from the Cadorna railway station, in the very center of Milan (subway stop Cadorna). You purchase your ticket (Euro 13) on the spot, before taking the train, or on line.
.:. Since the summer of 2011, some Malpensa Express shuttle-trains reach - instead of the Cadorna station - directly the main Stazione Centrale.
.:. A series of bus services connects Malpensa to the Stazione Centrale as well as to the Linate airport. The best known is the Malpensa Shuttle ([+039] 02 58583185].
.:. Malpensa has two terminals, simply called 1 (the bigger) and 2 (the old one). They are connected by a free shuttle bus.

Airport  Linate (LIN)
This is a metropolitan airport located in the eastern outskirts, some 10 kms from downtown. Its formal name is "Enrico Forlanini", after an inventor and aeronautical pioneer (Milan, 1848-1930).
.:. On Monday October 8, 2001 a private Cessna, taxiing out of a lateral runway where it should not have been at all, hit an SAS MD80 as it took off, sending it ploughing into a hangar and causing 118 casualties. The accident - the worst in the history of Italian civil aviation - was apparently due to a human error (made by the Cessna pilot) as well as to the fact that the airport's ground radar was not operational. The city of Milan declared a day of mourning.
.:. From July 27, 2019 to the early morning of October 27, 2019, Linate was not operational because of major renovation works.

A special shuttle-service connects with the Stazione Centrale, Milan's main railway station (info at [+039] 02 6690351). There is also an express urban bus, the X73, which runs to and from the city center; the X73 costs Euro 2.50, and is included in the local transport cards. Both these bus services take about 30 minutes, depending on traffic.
.:. Since November 26, 2022, Linate is connected to the city also thanks to a first section of the metro line M4, which is under construction. The closest station to the center is Dateo, where the M4 crosses the Passante.

Airport  Orio al Serio (BGY)
Orio is a smaller international airport near Bergamo, some 50 kms East of Milan. It has become the biggest Italian hub for low cost flights. Its formal name is "Il Caravaggio", after the famous 16th-century painter from the area.

There are bus services from and to Milan. The average fare is around 10 Euros.
.:. A service like this is offered by the Orio Shuttle. For information, call [+39] 035 319366 or [+39] 035 330706.
.:. You can also take a local bus between the Bergamo airport and the Bergamo railway station: trains between Bergamo and Milan (Euro 5.60) are frequent.
