Milan Linate Airport (IATA: LIN; ICAO: LIML) is one of three international airports in Milan, the second-largest city in Italy after Rome. The other airports are Malpensa and Bresso airports but Milan Linate is closest to the city. It is about 5 miles east of Milan’s city center.
Linate is named after the small village in which it is located in the cities of Segrate, where most of the airport buildings are located, and Peschiera Borromeo, where most of the airfield is located.
When it was built in the 1930s, the airport was called Airport Enrico Forlanini, after the Milan-born inventor and aeronautical pioneer (helicopters, hydrofoils and dirigibles).
In the years since, the airport has been completely rebuilt twice, once in the 1950s and again in the 1980s.
Linate Airport’s proximity to Milan city makes it ideal for business and corporate general aviation jets, domestic flights and short-haul international flights. It has two runways and serves about 8.3 million passengers a year. It is easy to charter a private jet to the other airports in Italy or anywhere in the world at Linate.

Renting a Jet to LIN
When you think of Milan, you are likely to think of haute couture – and understandably so – because Milan is one of the Big Four fashion cities of the world.
Twice a year, Milan joins New York, London and Paris to unveil designers’ lines of collections, one for spring and summer fashions, the other for fall and winter.
However there is more to Milan, located in the northern Lombardy region, than just designer clothing. The national stock exchange is in Milan, making it the country’s financial hub. It is also home to many fine restaurants, shops and Leonardo da Vinci’s mural of “The Last Supper.”
VIP Events in Milan
Milan has been associated with high fashion for more than 60 years. Milan Fashion Week, which was first held in 1958, is part of the global Big Four fashion weeks. The others are in New York, London and Paris.
There are two shows a year, one for spring/summer collections and the other for fall/winter collections. The spring/summer show is held in late September; the fall/winter show in late February.
There are also Men’s Fashion Weeks. Milano Moda Uomo displays international menswear trends and up-and-coming brands in Italian fashion. Fall/winter is held in mid-January; spring/summer in mid-June.
Tourists flock to the city – many by chartering private business jets into LIN – as more than 40 shows each season are presented on runways in the most elegant venues possible, often in palaces.
The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este draws millionaires and billionaires to see some of the world’s rarest and most valuable historic cars.
First held in 1929, the heyday of aristocratic cars, it has become a tradition for the rich and famous.
The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este owes its place atop the world’s prestigious historic car shows to its elegance, its storied tradition and its location at the beautiful Grand Hotel Villa d’Este on the shores of Lake Como.
In other words, the prestigious event is about much more than cars. The participants and aficionados in attendance, the surrounding gardens, the buildings of the Villa d’Este and Villa Erba and Lake Como give the event an air of aristocracy not felt at other car events.
It is held at the end of May with more than 50 historic cars, built between the 1920s and 1980s, on display.
A panel of jury members selects the historic cars and awards the Best of Show prize – the BMW Group Trophy. This is presented to the automobile that expresses beauty, passion and uniqueness.
There is also a prize for the people’s favorite, the Coppa d’Oro Villa d’Este, which is decided by the votes of attendees at the show. Lake Como is about 50 miles from Linate Airport.
Another must-see event for the A-list traveler coming into Linate Airport is Opening night of La Scala Once the place to see and be seen by 18th-century Milanese nobles, opening night of La Scala opera season is now the place to see and be seen by a modern and moneyed crowd.
Considered by many to be the high society event of Milan, opening night takes place every December 7, in honor of St. Ambrose, the patron saint of Milan. It marks the beginning of a season of drama, symphony and elite crowds that runs through May.
Perhaps the most widely known and respected opera house in the world, La Scala, which seats a demanding crowd of about 2,800, has been the venue sought by the world’s greatest operatic composers and singers.
Teatro alla Scala, as the Italians call it, has great historical and social importance to Milan and the entire international opera community. A short documentary made in association with The Guardian will help you understand the history and elegance of the famous La Scala Theater.
If you are chartering a private business jet into Milan as a tourist, you will likely want to see The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci in the Cathedral of Santa Maria Nascente, which the Milanese call “Il Duomo.” It is one of the largest churches in the world, holding up to 40,000 people.
The Last Supper is a true mural, painted directly on the wall of the church by Leonardo da Vinci in 1494-1498. To help preserve the painting, which represents the last meal Jesus had with his disciples, only 25 people at a time are allowed in the dining hall of the former Dominican convent where it is located.
Wondering how big the world’s most famous mural is? It is nearly 15 feet tall and 30 feet wide.
