Lots of different works, one purpose.

Take a drone’s eye view of the works!

The first operation, to be carried out during the closure of the airport, will be the re-laying of the take-off and landing runway. The works are for non-routine maintenance and need to be done every 15/20 years to guarantee passengers constantly high safety levels.

At the same time, there will be a restyling of the boarding area. We are also going to renovate the Baggage Handling System (BHS) which processes luggage for stowing in the plane holds and further increases airport security level; new state-of-the-art systems will be set up for this purpose.

Milano Linate is set to re-open on 27th October 2019, but some worksites will stay open for the renovation and expansion of the airport, scheduled to continue up to 2021.

What will happen to Linate from 27th July to 27th October?

A new and European
City Airport

We will improve the commercial offer of the airport with new shops - in order to meet the taste of our business customers. We will focus on a new format in the food&beverage area: the offer will range from local delicacies to the newest culinary trends and will be designed to meet all needs - from the relax zone to the business center. What is more, very distinctive architectonic features will create a light-filled effect, giving the airport a more modern and iconic image.

The works in Linate are just one step forward in the plan that will lead, in 2021, to a true City Airport for Milan: a completely renewed infrastructure, welcoming and functional, able to optimise passenger flows and offer a complete, comfortable and facilitated travel experience.

The road to New Linate

The works at Linate have already started (and are proceeding smoothly). Following the Summer closure, the airport will re-open at the end of October, but the restyling project will carry on into 2021.
