Bergamo Airport is located 28 miles (45 km) northeast of the city of Milan and close to the smaller city of Bergamo. There are Bergamo Departures every half hour on two different bus lines that run to Milan. Of course there are also buses to Bergamo. If you travel by taxi, it costs 100 euros to Milan and 35 euros to nearby Bergamo. You can of course also rent a car at the airport. There are a dozen rental car companies including Europcar, Sixt, Avis and Hertz. You can park at P1 Short Stay to park for free for the first 10 minutes and then pay 3.50 euros per hour. If you stay longer than P2 for a few days and P3 for long-stay, it is recommended.
There is 1 terminal at one of Italy’s busiest airports. Ground level is for all check-in and arrivals. When you arrive, there are first the entrances to the BGY Departures and then check in. On the left side of the building (in the back if you are arriving by car) is the arrivals lobby with baggage carousels. Go up one floor through security to get to the Bergamo Departures lobby for boarding.
Two runways are available for all flights. However, 1 of them is very short and only for small private aircraft. In 2019 there were still 13,857,257 passengers to be seen at the Italian airport, but due to the corona there is a decrease of more than 70%. There were over 38 thousand Orio al Serio Departures and arrivals with 3,833,063 passengers. The busiest inland routes often go to the islands of Sicily and Sasdinia. Ryanair offers most flights at the airport. Outside of Italy, the most popular route is to London Stansted in the UK followed by Charleroi, Barcelona, Beauvais and Valencia. There are also Milan Bergamo Airport Departures outside of Europe to Istanbul, Marsa Alam and Casablanca.
