The Linate Airport is one of the three major airports of Milan, along with Malpensa Airport and Bergamo. Due to its greater proximity to Milan (7.8 km), south-east of the city, compared with Malpensa, it is mainly used for international, domestic and short-haul flights with a total of 9,229,890 passengers in 2012. Its name comes from the small village where it is located in the town of Peschiera Borromeo while the official name is Enrico Forlanini Airport, in honour of the Italian inventor and aeronautical pioneer, born in Milan. Linate airport buildings are located in the municipality of Segrate and the complex is mostly situated in the town of Peschiera Borromeo.
The Linate Airport was built in 1930, near Milan Idroscalo, when that of Taliedo started to have an insufficient size to cover the commercial traffic. So Linate has undergone a complete reconstruction, first in 1950 and later, in 1980. Considered a "city airport" for its proximity to Milan, the Linate Airport offers numerous and interesting services to all travellers at the airport. It consists of a terminal and has two runways, respectively used for commercial traffic and aviation.
