Milano Linate Airport Reopens


Milano Linate will be operational after an almost four-month halt caused by the COVID-19 health crisis that characterized the first months of 2020, in full compliance with the health regulations for passengers and airport operators.

As it has happened with MXP before, new ways of accessing the terminal and the addition of one-way routes inside the terminal have been introduced to control the passenger flow, guaranteeing interpersonal safety distance protocols and making the stay inside the airport as safe as possible.

When entering the terminal, all passengers and those accompanying them will be subjected to body temperature checks, carried out using a thermal scanner. Check-points are at door 3 on the Departures Floor and at door 7 at the Arrivals Floor.

In case the device detects a body temperature of 37.5°C (99.5°F) or higher, a medical check-up is provided. Exit from the terminal is allowed from door 7 on the Arrivals Floor and from door 3 on the Departures Floor only.

Sanitary Measures


Inside the airport, the use of a face mask and keeping a safe distance of at least one meter from one another are mandatory. Passengers are also advised to adopt all the necessary behavioral rules to protect themselves and others.

These rules complement other significative measures adopted by SEA to guarantee maximum safety from a hygienic and sanitary point of view. The airport has implemented sanitation of the entire airport perimeter in both internal and external areas and installed sanitizing gel dispensers.

SEA has also started a communication campaign inside the airport, inviting all passengers to respect prevention rules essential to preserve their health and to fly in complete safety.
