Milan Bergamo Airport, located in the centre of Lombardy
is only 5 km from Bergamo and 50 km from Milan
After the inauguration of its civil aviation activities in 1972 with the first passenger flight, it became an airport of primary importance from 2003, when Ryanair opened an operating hub here, choosing it as its airport of reference in northern Italy. The arrival of low-cost flights ensured that Milan Bergamo became one of the top destinations in Europe and the Mediterranean area.

The Milan Bergamo Airport is located in the heart of the most interesting 
tourist area of northern Italy
Well-known ski resorts, for the winter season, are located a short distance away; the lakes, for summer, and many important Lombardy's art cities are also found nearby. Due to this fact, Milan Bergamo Airport has seen increasing numbers of passengers each year, who are attracted by the easy access, efficiency of operations and a network of connections to all areas in central-southern Italy and Europe.

The new departure area
It is arranged on two levels and covers a total area of 11,600 square metres and on the upper level offers greater comfort for passengers with areas dedicated to many retail stores and refreshment spaces.
In the summer of 2020, the airport will have only one VIP Lounge (Vip Land side) located before the security checks that are welcoming areas equipped with specially designed services for all types of travellers; in addition, the Fast Track service, in operation 24 hours a day, allows passengers to avoid queues to the security check lanes. Following the airport expansion works, the Vip Air side lounge will be closed until September to reopen with great news and guarantee even larger spaces.
The airport has a functional layout with 14 lanes for security checks and 23 boarding gates, a new “Sala Amica” (special assistance room) for passengers with reduced mobility, and a smokers’ area with patio.

The different areas of the airport
The walls of the departure terminal are covered with large designs depicting luggage label barcodes with the IATA code BGY of Milan Bergamo Airport.
The colour of the code distinguishes the individual areas:
  • green for the area dedicated to Schengen flights 
  • orange for non-Schengen flights
  • blue for security check areas
  • passenger flows while the yellow color characterizes the Food Court.
In July 2020, the opening of the new non-Schengen boarding area of Milan Bergamo Airport includes:
  • 2 new boarding towers
  • 10 new Extra Schengen gates (1 with loading bridge) on two floors
  • new duty free and food area
  • new Vip Lounge (more than 600 m2), each destination (passport pre-access control).
The expansion of the Schengen boarding areas and Arrivals for August 2021 includes:
  • 6 new gates for Schengen destinations
  • new retail and food spaces
