Malpensa airport: accessibility

Ferno (VA)

Malpensa airport can be reached by car, bus or train. It has two Terminals, T1 and T2, connected to each other 24 hours a day by a free shuttle bus service accessible to wheelchair passengers.




"Malpensa Express" trains by Trenord connect the main Milano railway stations (Milano Centrale, Milano Porta Garibaldi, Milano Cadorna, Milano Bovisa) directly to Terminals 1 and 2 of the airport. For more information, please visit the official website


All trains are accessible to people with disabilities: they are low-floor trains with retractable ramps for direct access to the train, have accessible restrooms, visual and sound communication systems with announcements in Italian and English. Seats reserved for wheelchair passengers are marked by a blue icon with the wheelchair symbol. 

To better organize assistance, passengers with reduced mobility are invited to contact Trenord at least 48 hours before departure using the online form that can be found on the official website or by calling the toll-free number 800 210955 (every day from 8:15 am to 7:45 pm).

For the connection between Terminals 1 and 2 there is a free shuttle service equipped for the transport of wheelchair users.




From Milano, the airport can be reached by car along the A8 highway, the so-called "Autostrada dei Laghi" in the direction of Varese. In all "ViaMilano Parking" car parks, there are parking lots reserved for passengers with disabilities.

Because of their location and accessibility, we recommend using the P2 car park (floor -1) for Terminal 1 and the P5 car park for Terminal 2; from both car parks, you can contact the Sala Amica assistance service directly.

To benefit from free parking, people with disabilities must contact the parking operator and go to the manned cash desk with the following documents: parking ticket; original disabled parking permit; identity card; flight ticket.
