In 2013 a third satellite building was constructed with new check-in desks and piers for the Airbus aircraft.
In 2015 the Milan Malpensa Airport was completely renovated. The restyling has led to a functional and aesthetic improvement of the entire check-in area, boarding and security checks and the creation of the new commercial area with shops and the piazze del Lusso e del Gusto (squares of Luxury and Taste), an area for fashion and food and wine boutique and shopping.
