Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us about their time at Milan Linate Airport.

What to Expect

Milan Linate Airport consists of an old, mid-size terminal with only a few dining and shopping options. WiFi is available to help pass the time. And, if you're willing to pay, comfort can be found through fee-based access to one of the airport’s first class lounges. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

Airport staff and security are generally tolerant of overnight sleepers in the check-in area, and travellers feel safe while in the airport overnight. Some travellers who were found sleeping in other sections of the airport reported that they were asked to go to the check-in area. The outdated airport comes with outdated seating that consists of bolt-upright metal-framed benches with armrests. Most overnight sleepers resort to the floor, so consider bringing a travel mat and travel blanket for additional comfort. For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
