Linate Airport in Milan

Linate Airport (LIN, LIML), officially known as “Aeroporto Enrico Forlanini” – in honor of the Italian inventor and aeronautical pioneer – is one of the three major airports in Milan. Despite being the closest to the city, it is the least transited of the three, receiving just over 8 million passengers a year and being used as a base for Alitalia. General aviation and private jets have a designated terminal facility and runway on the east side of the airfield, Milan Linate Prime. Four fixed-based operators (FBOs) are located at LIN to service private jets and passengers flying in and out. One long runway of 8,012 ft. handles the jet-class traffic, while a short runway and helipad are also on the field.
