Post by atoutprix » 13 Feb 2016, 12:24

Bergamo Orio al Serio (BGY) serves Milan for Image
Its official name is "Il Caravaggio International Airport Bergamo Orio al Serio" (Michele Merisi, known as "Il Caravaggio" being a famous painter of the XVIth century)
Milan is 45 km to the south-west
Bergamo is 5 km away
Brescia is 45 km to the east

The airport website :
http://www.orioaeroporto.it/Airpor/portalProcess.jsp

The runway :
3024x45m
10/28
237m above sea level
open 24/24 hrs
ILS cat IIIb

The terminal :
- 23 boarding gates
-the arrival hall is on the left (when in front of the building), the departure zone is on the right, and can be rather busy at times.
-just after the door out of the custom, you can find the tourism office to the left (helpful people, they can give a lot of infos and maps of Bergamo, they also sell the Bergamo urban bus tickets) and the selling counters of coach companies at the right and in front.
- a magazine is published four times a year by the airport : "avion", available for free in the luggage claim area and at the boarding gates.

No train coming up to this airport. Only buses and coaches :
- Urban bus to Bergamo railway station and on to the town center and the old town : 2,10 euro for the trip; also day ticket valid valid for a return trip airport-town AND all day on the urban net including the funiculars ( 5,00 euros, november 2013). Trip to the station can take from 20 to 30 minutes or even more during the rush hours.
The bus from the airport stops in front of of the railway station (and most go on to the Città Alta). To the airport : the bus stop is in front of the Stazione Autolinee, on the right side of the McDo.
- There are many buses and coaches going to Milan, Brescia and other destinations. They stop is in front of the "Arrival" side of the terminal.
prices and schedules can be found on the airport website :

Landside, the terminal is long but not wide, and can be very crowded at the rush hour !
There is a bookshop selling a few Italian aviation magazines : JP4, Volare,... - and also bars and other shops.
The security check for all gates is on the ground floor.
All passengers must then go to the first floor; gates 10 to 21 are on that level. One has to go down to the ground floor again to reach gates 1 to 9 to non-Shengen destinations.
There are shops on the first floor : bookshop, perfumes, wines and alcools, clothes, and one can have some food and drinks and even buy a hamburger at a McDo.
Boarding a Imageis, in my experience, often through a bridge, down the steps and to the aircraft either by foot or in a bus.

If you have at least one hour to spend before your flight, there is a big commercial center - "Orio Center" - within walking distance (10 minutes or so from the terminal). It's in front of the terminal, but on the other side of a highway. Follow the side road to the right (there is now a safe walkway), then the passage under the highway, then left to the Orio center (about a 15 minutes walk). There are a lot of shops, amongst which a large "Iper" supermarket, a McDo, etc.
