- The Orio al Serio International Airport (also known as Milan Bergamo Airport) is the third busiest international airport in Italy, located approximately 45 kilometres northeast of Milan. The airport primarily has low cost flights to Europe, although does offer some flights to North Africa. There are several coach and bus services that run to Milan from the airport.
