Milan Malpensa terminal 1 was a brand new airport
at the start of the new millenium. Milan is the
business capital of Italy. But Milan has always

terminals have a regular direct busservice with
Milan central railwaystation in 2008.

airport Linate remained popular afterwards for
intra-european flights as that airport is loacted
much more near the city center.
