Orio al Serio International Airport (IATA: BGY, ICAO: LIME), also known as Il Caravaggio International Airport, is an international airport located in the municipal territory of Orio al Serio, 2 nautical miles (3.7 kilometres; 2.3 miles) southeast of Bergamo in Italy. The airport is 45 km (28 mi) north-east of Milan, which it serves together with Malpensa Airport and Linate Airport, the city's two primary airports. The airport served 11,159,631 passengers in 2016 and is the third busiest in Italy.

Contents

Despite being called Milan/Bergamo Airport or similar by some low-cost airlines, neither "Milan" nor "Bergamo" are part of the airports official naming.

The airport is managed by SACBO, a company partially owned by SEA – Aeroporti di Milano, the operator of Linate and Malpensa airports. SEA, the company that runs the latter two airports, also holds a 31% stake in SACBO. It is named "Il Caravaggio" after the Baroque painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, who lived as a child at Caravaggio in the Province of Bergamo.

Services

Ground handling services are provided by SACBO and Airport Global Services. Security services were formerly provided by SACBO with the supervision of the Polizia di Frontiera (Border Police), Guardia di Finanza (Italian Customs Police) and Ente Nazionale Aviazione Civile (Italy's Civil Aviation Authority). Due to labour disputes and costs the security services have been outsourced to a private security firm (Fidelitas).

Accidents and incidents

On 5 August 2016, during the night, Boeing 737-476 (SF) registered HA-FAX, operated by ASL Airlines Hungary, overshot while landing on runway 28 in Bergamo and came to a stop on a parking lot and on a secondary highway lane that is around the airport, 300 m from the runway end. No one was injured, but some cars were destroyed and the plane sustained substantial damages. The plane was removed from the street in the same day. The air traffic remained unvaried without delays.

Car

The A4 is one of the main road networks that links the Airport and you will have to pay a toll to enter the Airport from this road. Please note that the road signs for the Airport use the name "Milano Bergamo Airport" and not its official name.
