2003-2005 The historic covers of Avion Tourism Magazine

The three-year period that tells, through the contents of the magazine, the beginnings of the extraordinary development of Milan Bergamo airport
The Avion Tourism Magazine was created as an editorial product providing tourist and airport information, aimed at offering an exclusive entertainment service for transit passengers at Milan Bergamo Airport.
Registered in the Bergamo Court with the number N1/2003 on January 19, 2003 by Ferrari Grafiche Spa (at the time the publishing house of the Orobie magazine specializing in photographic books), which also printed the paper copies, the free press magazines were distributed in the airport in specially designed display stands located in strategic points of the airport.
The editorial staff, led by Eugenio Sorrentino, had a fixed editor and various external collaborators, while Annalisa Trivigno, Marketing and Communication Director of the publishing house, was in charge of the commercial and promotional management of the magazine.
On January 31, 2003, the historic editor-in-chief Eugenio Sorrentino closed the first issue of Avion Tourism Magazine in the editorial office, in glossy paper edition, published every two months. For the first edition, the AVION logo was created with the letter O transformed into an airplane porthole from which the profile of Bergamo Alta could be seen, and a bilingual layout (Italian-English) was chosen with 2 parallel columns in 21x28 cm format, printed on matte coated paper with a plasticized cover and a glossy serigraphy on the logo, with a minimum pagination of 96 internal pages.
The magazine included a series of fixed columns such as "Milano Bergamo News" and "News from the Carriers", providing information to passengers on the airport services, to which were added those called "Tourism", "Destinations", "Fabulous destinations" which described locations directly and not directly connected to BGY. The information was completed with a focus on "Bergamo and more", news on the main nearby events and various Lifestyle columns.
Below are the 18 magazines of the first edition published from 2003 to 2005, which accompanied the beginnings of the extraordinary development of Milan Bergamo Airport, with the contents of the main fixed columns and their respective editorials.

This issue comes out at the same time that work starts on boosting the airport infrastructures for better passengers services. The Arrivals section of the airport will be reorganised in early Summer, with 4 new baggage reclaim conveyor belts, three new waiting lounges and extra passport control points, thus cutting the time taken by international passengers to clear the airport. Then there's also a new lounge being built for Tour Operators, an assembly point for their passengers where they can distribute travel documents. This structure, with its operating stations, flight info system, snack point, toilets and air-conditionins, will be connected to the rest of the airport by means of a covered walkway for fast access to the check-in area.
Finally, the new baggage handling system should be ready by the end of the year. Fully automated with X-ray control, this will guarantee max safety and precise sorting of baggage onboard aeroplanes.

Wider spaces, more comfort, simplification of the operating system and a service altogether better for those who choose to go on holiday by air.
With the summer season of 2003 Sacbo has put a special area at the tour operators disposal, to use as a meeting point for passengers on charter flight departures.
The facilities, in front of the air terminal, to which it is linked by a covered pedestrian way, is equipped with eight check in desks, air conditioning system and all help, refreshments and communication services, including a flight information system.

The monthly record of Air traffic registered in August, with 388 thousand passengers in transit, awards the organizing and managerial work of the Bergamo stop over, that has also deserved a four star rating in the Touring Club listings, based on the findings of functional characters and approval of the service expressed by the passengers.
The possibility of flying low cost through Europe, combined to the quality, efficiency and punctuality of the services offered, by the low cost companies have gained new quotes of passengers, in the civil aviation field. The growth of Orio al Serio is accompanied by the arrival of passengers, different from the frequent flyers, that have learnt to appreciate the affordable rates, and the comfort of using the flight for ones transfers. The availability of flight connections, with the main European cities, has brought companies and businessmen to plan their journeys, with a remarkable time and cost saving.

The increase of passenger traffic, caused by the effect of politics on low-cost rates, has by now reached relevant proportions all over Europe. Old and new passengers have learned to make better use of the reservation system, choosing each time the most convenient solution for their journeys. The numerous alternatives, not only for the occasional traveller but also for those who travel often. The so-called "frequent flyers", and companies, by now, are used to program their flights taking aduantages of the on-line ticketing. Nevertheless low rates could not be so successful without the guarantee of comforts, punctuality and quality of service. A task that involues not only the airline companies but also the airport management, because the journey starts and finishes in the airport, where the assistance of passengers is prerogative of preference.

The definition "low cost airport", to suggest the presence of airlines operating low cost fares, is spreading not only among the insiders but also among passengers. It means that a landing have to guarantee the top efficiency in sharp timins for the flights and allow to the passengers to complete smoothly the check-in and security operations as well as to give and collect the luggage in short times. The airport itself, as an intermediate station, offers the whole range of services usuallt requested by the passengers before leaving or after the landing. Accessibility and comforts, as well as the advantages of the low cost ticket, become the factors to define the value added in the choice of a plane trip.

The total flight timing, that starts in the moment we leave for the airport untill we finally land at destination, is the main factor on which we choose what plane is going to be ours. It is obvivos that every terminal operation should go smoothly, allowing the passenger to make it in time, nevermind if it's for touristic or business activities.
The constant growth in passengers quota and the increasing number of charter flights during summer bolidays made up the mind for Sacbo to improve the parking lots. Due to this enhancement, they started the construction of Fast Park, a prefab building beside the arrival area, adding 350 more lots from June and growing to 1000 when it will be entirely built.
It's planned to fit perfectly with the aims of a modern airport. Beside the efficiency of ground and flight services, the quality of assistance both in and outside the airport becomes the determining factor for the choice to be made.

Record time. That's what is to be expected from Orio al Serio this summer. Along with the constant increase of passengers comes the excellent rating of services.
The preference given to Orio, both from tourists and businessmen flying with low-cost airlines, attest how good are the assistance and services during all the phases preceding and following the flight.
The check-in desks set-up and the different procedures in the charter flights area simplify the operations, the regular flow of passengers is guaranteed 24h/24h.
It's also important to point out the reason for this records, due not to the increased number of flights but to the high occupation rating of the seats on board.
The winner is the strategic policy of the landing management, always careful to guarantee a high level of efficiency, both inside and outside the airport and on the loading area. Everything is set to offer to passengers sharp timing and assistance as the airlines request.

Often, also during suided tours in the airport, a question comes to the surface: how do some airlines practice a low cost strategy and if these airlines maybe have special agreements with the airport's management. It's worth to underline that to low cost companies do not take advantage from take off or landing reductions, neither on the other services eventually requested for on the landing area.
There are few but substantial differences. The crew on ground and in the landing area is limited to the main operations, rangins from the palne check-up and security, while the crew on board cares for the plane itself.
Everything runs smoothly and paying the greatest care for sharp timing. This way, the low cost banner reaches a high level in efficiency, with a global effect of reducing the
service costs. Also the choice to use a single plane model, chose among the most modern and reliable planes with the top capacity payload and which of the pilots is licensed to fly with, makes the difference in reducing the maintenance costs.
Everybody knows bow it works: booking a flight in adance means to pay less, catering on board is not for free, special offers and agreements with hotels and shuttle buses generating extra incomes in royalties for the airline.

Orio al Serio's airport is in full growth; it's one of the favourite destinations chosen by passengers. At the end of October the passengers flow calculated on the first ten months base smashed the 2003 record of 2.884.000 people, and on last November 16 the three millions quota has been exceeded. At the end of 2004 the total passengers movement will record an upgrade of almost half a million people than the previous year.
The growth of these figures reflects the satisfaction of consumers, to which a new set of services (both in flight and in the airport) will be offered. The new european routes and southern Italy enhance the network with new destinations and in some cases upgrading the already existing connections.
It's good to see how low cost flights, which increased tourist and business relationships, became a habit for passengers, who now are able to plan their bolidays and business trips with quality and economy.

In the past months Orio al Serio airport gained popularity due to the ever growing number of passengers intrigued and pleased by the many and efficient services at their disposal. The people leaving from Orio of course are attracted by the low cost politics and smooth checking opeations; the people landing in Orio learned to programme their stay in Lombardy and Bergamo territory. They choose carefully what to see, how to move, where to stay and what kind of traditional cooking is best to taste and, last but not least, the best places to go shopping.
All of this is very important, because the growth of low cost traffic gave birth to a new "species" of passengers travelling for work or holidays with a precise destination; thus, this brand new kind of travellers melt together the time spent for working and the time dedicated to discover the landscapes, the artsand culture of the location visited.
It's not by a chance that in wintertime the Bergamask valleys, as well as the walls of Città Alta, are crowded with tourists comins from all over Europe, due to the wide range of links and connections to Orio al Serio airport. This range is destined to keep on growing and extend to the Countries in the Mediterranean basin as well as the ones shortly to be accepted in Europe.

In terms of units of traffic, including air courier movements, it rises to fifth place after the Milanese airports of Malpensa and Linate, Rome Fiumicino and Venice. On the basis of figures recorded in 2005, Orio al Serio is among the top 50 European airports with the largest increase in passenger traffic after Valencia. The forecast for the current year indicates that the 4 million passenger mark will be reached against the 3,337,000 passengers of 2004.
With regard to airport infrastructures, the realisation of the Fast Park was a particularly important achievement. This prefabricated structure near the arrivals area has increased the total number of car parking places to 6.300, 1.000 of which are covered.
Work is in progress to expand the departure lounges and the aircraft apron in the north area. This will be finished by summer 2005, while a site has been started for construction of the new control tower (completion estimated for March 2006).

The new radar system of Orio al Serio airport was officially approved at the beginning of July. It was installed in December 2004 by Enav (Italian organisation for air navisation services) on the basis of an agreement drawn up with the airport management company (Sacbo) that also includes the building of a new control tower.
The radar system, consisting of an approach radar and a surface radar; is one of the most modern infrastructures for improving air traffic control during the approach to the runway, take-off and movement of vehicles on the ground. This approval enables the commitments undertaken for improving the operating efficiency of the airport to be met, resulting in benefits to the population living in the surrounding areas in terms of acoustic and environmental impact.
The combined use of the new radar equipment, complyins with the latest European standards, will reduce flights times by 4 minutes for each arrival and one minute for each departure.

It is always difficult to estimate the territorial impact of a airport, even more so when this airport is Orio al Serio, which, in the last three years, has had considerable growth in passenger traffic. An updated study of the economic effects produced by this development indicates a level of employment of more than 3,500 employees. Including external services and induced activities, this figure reaches almost 18,000 units.
This means that for every worker employed in the airport, another four can perform their professional duties thanks to the existence of Orio al Serio airport. The value of output generated by the airport, together with induced activity, reaches 2.2 billion euros per annum. However the most important effect is that of providing a fast and economically accessible means of transport, which can offer travel solutions that are useful to both companies and individual travellers travelling for work or on holiday, thus helping to attract visitors and generate tourism.
