Malpensa Airport is one of two airports that cater for the vast number of traffic to and from the city of Milan in Italy. Malpensa is the larger of the two airports and is around 45 kilometres from the city center and is the second biggest airport in Italy, second only to Rome. The airport caters for more long haul international flights rather than domestic and short haul international flights – these use Linate Airport. The airport handles around 24 million passengers landing in or departing from the famous city of fashion and couture. Numbers have also increased to this airport with low cost carriers using it and Easyjet have actually made this airport the biggest hub for them outside of the UK.
Milan is a big city and is well serviced by great road infrastructure. This makes hiring a car for your stay an ideal way to get around and see as much of the city and the surrounding Italian countryside and villages. The airport being so large has the advantage of holding many car rental agent desks. The disadvantage is that with so many arrivals there are a lot of other travellers that also intend to hire cars and this can lead to a shortage of vehicles. To ensure that you get a vehicle that is suited to your needs, length of stay and budget it is definitely good to look online at offers available. The Internet can help you book your perfect car for your stay. Once booked you need not worry about any paperwork or booking issues on arrival and you can relax and look forward to your Italian experience!
