Getting around the airport

BGY

Bergamo's Orio al Serio Airport lies a distance of almost 50km from Milan (and 8km from Bergamo). Despite its increasing workload, the airport is quite small, with only one passenger terminal on two floors. However, there are enough cafés and shops to keep you busy while you wait for your flight.

Check-in desks and the security check are on the ground floor. After security, there are 23 gates. Gates 1-11 are on the ground floor, and Gates 12-23 are on the first floor.

Tip: As the airport can get overcrowded at peak times, we recommend booking into the VIP Lounges and using the Fast Track service.

Cost: EUR 5.50 if purchased online here, EUR 7.00 at the airport ticket office (EUR 42 for a 10-ticket carnet if you're a frequent visitor).

Lounges

Excellent value VIP areas

If you want to relax in between flights or before boarding, we highly recommend spending your money on one of the two VIP Lounges.

Cost: EUR 20 online (EUR 22 at airport ticket office counters), EUR 84 for five admissions online

Location: Landside: Departures, beside security checks. Airside: in the shopping area of the boarding gates.

Getting into Milan

Take the shuttle bus

Milan is over 50 kilometres away from Bergamo airport and taxis can be expensive. The cheapest and most convenient way to get into the city is the Terravision shuttle bus. Trains run from Bergamo rail station, but you will have to get a bus there first.

Bus

Terravision buses run from the airport to Milan city every 20-30 minutes, from 04:05 to 01:00. Journey time is around 60 minutes. (You can also take the Orioshuttle bus, which can be handy if there's a queue for Terravision.) 

Cost: EUR 5 one way, EUR 9 return
Location: Arrivals area, bus parking, bus stop no. 1
Buying tickets: On the bus or online before you travel

Taxi

However, if you'd rather take a taxi, make sure you take a licensed taxi with a sticker saying 'Taxi autorizzato per il servizio aeropuertale lombardo'. This guarantees that the taxi driver will charge you the standard airport fare. Taxis without this license may charge double. You can also prebook a taxi here (cost around EUR 100). 

Cost: Around EUR 80
Location: Outside Arrivals

Going to Bergamo?

The ATB bus network runs a regular service to Bergamo. Take the number 1 bus outside the airport to Bergamo train station in Piazza Marconi, the lower part of town, the funicular station or to the upper town Città Alta. Buses run every 30 minutes from 06:00-24:00 and journey time is 10-15 minutes.

Cost: EUR 2
Buying tickets: Buy before boarding at the tourist office or at kiosks within the airport

Directions can be confusing

Get an airport map

While the airport is small we recommend picking up a map of the airport at the information desk. The directions throughout the airport do not provide the most direct routes to gates, so if you’re in a rush it will be easier to find your way the old-fashioned way.

Parla Italiano

Few staff speak English

If you have questions, we suggest brushing up on your Italian skills or downloading a translation app - many visitors to Bergamo airport have found it difficult to communicate with airport staff in English.

Luggage storage

Due to the lack of comfortable facilities at the airport, we suggest heading out into the town if you have a long layover. You can leave your bags in the Left Luggage Office situated at the arrival area. The rate is EUR 4 per day per piece of luggage.

Where to eat

Refined dining at Wine Bar Santa Cristina

Bergamo airport has very little by way fine dining options but if you’re looking for something a little nicer than a panini, we suggest heading to the Wine Bar Santa Cristina.

It’s an elegant bar with a selection of Italian wine, gourmet meals, and tasty snacks. If you want to take home a nice bottle of Italian wine, Santa Cristina also offers a great selection in classy packaging.
