When you decide to fly to Milan, you should know there are three airports in Milan.
Malpensa Airport is the biggest and most important airport in Milan and also in Italy. It’s a main international airport in this area of Europe.
Linate Airport is the closest airport to the city center. This airport is mainly dedicated to internal domestic and European flights.
The third one, Bergamo Airport (also called Orio Al Serio) is the smallest and it became the main hub for low-cost airlines flying to Milan, like Ryanair.
