Milan Bergamo Airport opens new taxiway and stands to support growth

Milan Bergamo Taxi way

Milan Bergamo Airport inaugurated its expanded northern apron and a new taxiway – Taxiway B enhancing its capacity and operational efficiency.

The expansion includes three new aircraft stands, increasing the airport’s total to 48. This setup reduces runway occupancy times, benefiting airline partners significantly. Furthermore, Taxiway B will boost the airport’s capacity focusing on cargo, logistics, and maintenance operations.

In addition to these enhancements, the airport has revealed plans to expand its passenger terminal. This includes a new check-in hall, a redesigned security area with advanced X-ray systems, and an expanded non-Schengen departures zone, set to be completed by November 2025.

Upon completion, the eastern section of the passenger terminal will see an increase of 3,720 square metres on the ground floor and an additional 7,400 square metres on the first floor for the security controls area. It will include 14 EDS CB-3 security lane stations for hand-luggage screening. This technology enhances the passenger’s security and airport experience, allowing them to keep their electronic devices and liquids within their bags, while being processed in a more secure and efficient way. Furthermore, the duty-free area will be expanded from 600 square metres to 1,600 square metres, alongside additional space for non-Schengen boarding.

These developments are part of a 41-million-euro investment by airport operator SACBO, emphasising Milan Bergamo Airport’s commitment to becoming a world-class facility and improving the user experience for passengers and airlines.

Giacomo Cattaneo, Director of Commercial Aviation, SACBO, said: “Our latest infrastructure expansion and upcoming improvements at Milan Bergamo Airport are pivotal in our strategy to accommodate increasing passenger and cargo traffic while enhancing the overall user experience. These developments not only reflect our commitment to operational excellence but also position us for significant growth in the coming years. We are excited about these changes and confident that they will bring about a new era of efficiency and convenience for all our partners and passengers.”
