21NOV20 / 1800Z - Alitalia Virtual Presents: At the Foot of the Italian Alps with IFATC @ LIMC


Milan-Malpensa Airport has played a crucial role in the history of Alitalia.

Until 2008, it served as a major hub for the airline, with direct connections as far as Los Angeles and Hong Kong. From 2008 to just a few months ago, it was designated as a focus city, while most of Alitalia’s Milan operations focused at the more centrally located Linate (LIML). Sadly, due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the travel industry, as of October 1st, 2020, Alitalia has suspended passenger service from this airport for the first time in 70 years.

As a final farewell to Alitalia services at Malpensa, we are choosing to honor the historical bond between the airline and the airport with Alitalia Virtual’s very first IFC event.

Milan-Malpensa Airport (IATA: MXP, ICAO: LIMC) is the largest of three international airports in the Milan metropolitan area in northern Italy. It serves the regions of Lombardy, Piedmont and Liguria, as well as those living in the Swiss Canton of Ticino. The airport is located 49 kilometres (30 mi) northwest of central Milan, next to the Ticino river.

Malpensa is a hub for Cargolux Italia and FedEx; a focus city for Blue Panorama Airlines, easyJet, Neos, and Ryanair; and has been both a major hub and a focus city for Italian flag carrier, Alitalia.

Milan is the capital of Lombardy and the second-most populous city in Italy (after Rome), with a population of 1.4 million people. Milan is considered a leading alpha global city, with strengths in the fields of art, commerce, design, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, services, research and tourism.

The city has been recognized as one of the world’s fashion capitals, thanks to several international events and fairs, including Milan Fashion Week and the Milan Furniture Fair, which are among the world’s biggest in terms of revenue, visitors and growth.

Milan will host the 2026 Winter Olympics together with Cortina d’Ampezzo.
