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.
