Milano Prime has started construction of the new General Aviation Terminal at Malpensa, one of Milan’s two airports. It’s expected to open in June 2019.
This will be a brand-new 15,000sqft building, with high-quality finishes for common spaces and private lounges, says Milano Prime. It will be equipped to host passengers and crews who will enjoy a relaxed atmosphere thanks to the refined furniture and design lighting.
Dedicated control and security filters will complete the offer. The new Milano Malpensa Prime terminal will be built next to a 54,000sqft hangar, which is already operational, to host visiting and home-basd executive jets, and a dedicated apron.
Milano Malpensa Prime will open at a crucial time for Milan’s airports. In July 2019, Milano Linate airport is expected to close for about three months to allow for the refurbishment of the commercial Aviation Terminal and of its 2,442-metre runway, which completes the city airport restyling project.
Given the constant increase in movements, Milano Linate Prime is continuing to develop and invest in infrastructure, with new hangars, which are expected to be built starting from 2020.
“Our numbers show that Milan Prime is an extremely attractive destination for both business and leisure traffic,” said Chiara Dorigotti, General Manager at SEA Prime.
“The new Milano Malpensa Prime B&GA Terminal is a complementary service to Milano Linate Prime, which has a unique position, only 4.3 miles far from Milan city centre.
“In our vision, the new Milano Malpensa Prime Terminal will be an additional gateway not only to the city of Milan, but also for Lombardy and the heart of Europe. It will also allow access to tourist locations such as Lake Como and ski areas in the Alps.”
Milano Prime was founded in 2015 after the acquisition by SEA SpA (the company that manages Milan’s airports). Milano Prime manages all the airport infrastructure of Milano Linate Prime and Milano Malpensa Prime, including the terminal, a dedicated apron, 11 hangars of a total surface area of 29,000 sqm, passenger and crew lounges, and the BMW Business Centre.
