Recent trip to Bergamo (Milan) Airport

Legroom was manageable for a 1h 45 min flight. The flight was full apart from 12 seats at the back.

Hi Zulfiqar,

Thanks for sharing your pictures. Welcome to Italy.

BTW, how is Bergamo's airport? Mostly I have heard negative comments about it.

^^ Thank you for your appreciation.

Bergamo Airport was not too bad. We were bussed to the arrivals hall and i left the airport within 15 minutes of my arrival.

As I had already done my online check in, i arrived about an hour before my flight. I did not linger too long in the check in hall, only for a quick coffee with my friend who dropped me off. The coffee was fantastic and cheap compared to London prices. Queues at the security were not too long. The departure all (airside) had a good assortment of shops (like most airports people are forced to walked /snake through the airside shops). Departure of my flight was being announced and walked straight to the departure gate. From here we were again taken by a bus to the aircraft. I prefer a small airports so it was great for me. Also walking up the stairs to board may be old school but nice.

Stansted Airport was chaotic , especially the security before entering airside. I am sure during the summer holiday period it must be maddening. Really did not like the airport.
