TO Milan Malpensa reopen Terminal 1: from June 15 Terminal 2 closes, which has handled all flights for almost three months, and operations resume from the larger and more modern terminal. It starts with two out of three “satellites”, i.e. with two thirds of the terminal. And you do it amidst a thousand safety precautions.
The minimum threshold for reopening the T1 was three thousand daily passengers: Armando Brunini, CEO of Sea, had prudently indicated a date between June 15 and July 1, but the one for 15 was already circulating as a more realistic forecast, especially in light of the re-start of Easyjet, with several “domestic” flights (ie internal) to which they will gradually add the international ones.
How Milan Malpensa Terminal 1 reopens
Sea has already prepared all measures to prevent contagion risk. At this point he only expects the ENAC go-ahead, the National Civil Aviation Authority, but all are already ready for the effective reopening of Terminal 1.

While the Central Satellite “will be kept closed” and will be reopened “when it is necessary to have a higher number of gates / fingers”.
Inside they have been trace all the routes, with the temperature detection stations provided at the entrance doors (two on the arrivals floor and two on the floor check in), with the “mapping” of the spaces to ensure the correct ratio between the number of passengers expected and the surface of the dedicated spaces (to avoid gatherings), with the exit routes (two per floor). The calculation of the spaces is valid for each area, down down to the railway station.
But when does Linate reopen?
Then there is the Linate theme, which obsesses many Milanese, very fond of the city airport, which has structural limits (cannot manage planes wide body) but it is – in fact – inside the city: currently the forecast of passengers is low and has not yet justified the request to reopen it. In the latest provision, ENAC confirmed – at the request of the operator – the closure of Milan Linate airport, while in the meantime it has reopened some regional airports (for example: Brindisi which is added, in Puglia, to Bari.
