Orio al Serio Airport is located between the cities of Milan, Brescia and Bergamo (nearest at 6km / 4miles). It is one of the busiest airports in Italy at 3rd place behind Rome Fiumicino and Milan Malpensa. Milan is 35 miles (51 km) and can be reached by various buses or taxi. There are Bergamo Arrivals every half hour if you travel by bus. Travel by taxi and it is a lot more expensive of course, but perhaps a lot easier. A ride to Milan costs around 100 euros and to Bergamo around 30 euros. Traveling with your own transport by renting a car is of course also possible. There are several car rental companies at the airport: Autavia, Joyrent, Leasys, Enterprise, Budget, Goldcar, Hertz, Europcar, Thrifty, Sixt, Avis and more.
There is 1 long terminal where on the ground floor you can find the check-in counters for checking in, the security to go to the first floor for departures and at the back of the building is the arrivals lobby with baggage claim. There are currently renovations and extensions to the terminal in 2020/2021.
As said before, it is an important airport with many annual passengers. In 2019 there were almost 14 million, but unfortunately due to corona there were less than 4 million in 2020 (38,668 BGY Arrivals & Departures). That will undoubtedly not be at the old level by 2021. There are still regular flights with Ryanair, which has the largest market share. Many flights go to Bari, Cagliari and Alghero in Sardinia, Lamezia Terme, Pescara and Catania, Palermo and Trapani in Sicily. The biggest drops are of course on the routes outside Italy. London Stansted is an important route in this, but also Charleroi, Barcelona, Madrid, Manchester, Berlin, Bucharest, Dublin, Valencia, Beauvais and Seville. In addition to the many Ryanair Milan-Bergamo Airport Arrivals, there are also flights with Wizz Air, Albastar, Pegasus, Neos, Air Arabia and Belle Air.
