Cheap Flights to Linate

Linate overview

Linate International Airport, officially called Airport Enrico Forlanini – after the Italian inventor and aeronautical engineer born in Milan – is one of three major airports in Milan. It was completely reconstructed in the 1950s, as well as the 1980s, in order to accommodate the increasing number of tourists visiting the area each year, and in 2010 it handled more than eight million passengers. Flights to Milan Linate International Airport come from hubs in the UK and Europe.

Comprising one fairly tired-looking terminal building with two levels, Linate International can be somewhat crowded and chaotic at times. Thankfully, however, staff are friendly and helpful. There are five airbridges, which means that numerous flights are boarded via airport shuttles, thus increasing waiting times for many passengers.

Perhaps the greatest benefit of using Linate International is its close proximity to the city centre. Located only 8km (5 miles) south-east of Milan, it’s a short, 15-minute drive to the capital of Lombardy.
