How to get to the city

Milan is in the north of Italy and is easily accessible both by land and by air. It is Italy’s international gateway with three good-sized international airports. These are the easiest and fastest ways to get to Milan depending on where you are departing from:


By Plane

Since the arrival of European low-cost airlines, Milan and Lombardy have become popular tourist destinations in Italy. Very close to the Italian lakes and other remarkable towns and villages, the capital of Lombardy currently has over 36 million passengers arrive or depart from Milan’s airports.


Travelling from the U.S.

It is difficult to find non-stop flights from the United States to Milan. Nevertheless, there are many one-stop flights between international airports like Chicago (ORD), Los Angeles (LAX), Boston (BOS), Houston (IAH) and Dallas (DFW). These are not necessarily expensive. If you do not live very close to an international airport, we recommend flying to New York for a connecting flight to Milan. Presently, the only direct flights to Milan are offered by Delta Airlines and Alitalia that fly from New York JFK to Milan (Malpensa Airport). United Airlines also offers non-stop flights from Newark to Milan. All flights from the U.S. fly into Malpensa Airport.


Travelling from Canada


Travelling from Australia

The most frequent flights to Milan from Australia are by Emirates, Singapore Airlines, Etihad Airways and Virgin Australia. These fly from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. Flights normally take between 23 and 30 hours.


Travelling from Europe

  • EasyJet: Easyjet flies directly to Milan from Edinburgh, Glasgow, London Gatwick, London Luton and Manchester.
  • Ryanair: Ryanair flies from East Midlands, Edinburgh (very few flights), London Stansted and Manchester.
