Along with adding more stand capacity, improvements have also been made inside the terminal, with a brand-new reconverted check-in area being opened, with the redesign catering for the growing number of passengers.

“We have changed our check-in facilities in order to improve the passenger experience. As more and more people choose to fly from Milan Bergamo, we understood that more needed to be done to cater for them. The changes in the check-in area have created more room, changes which have been done in a creative and sustainable way within the current terminal building infrastructure,” commented Cattaneo.

The new check-in area houses 33 desks, four bag-drop counters, and a new group check-in area, while the flight information display screens now operate in four different languages: Italian, English, Russian and Romanian, catering for the ever-growing international passengers flying through the airport.

Finally, Milan Bergamo is preparing to open a new play area for its youngest passengers, creating a new place for families to relax before flying. Situated on the first floor of the departure lounge, this facility will open for young passengers to enjoy within the first few weeks of 2019.
