Did the work below taxiway Kilo include the infrastructure (or even just the space) for a future people-mover between T2A, T2B and a future T2C?

New airline and new airport.
Aeroitalia to fly 5x weekly to Bergamo in northern Italy from early Dec 2022. Yes, I was surprised at the short period between announcement and first flight

íI give it a seasoní although in saying that, a bit more niche for the winter ski sorts ex LHR, probably same sorts who pay £900 for a flight to Santorini.

Needless to say, Aeroitalia are marketing the route as "Milan Bergamo" (as do Ryanair).

Its valid, actually itís a couple of km closer than Malpensa to central Milan although no direct rail link. And better for areas to the north-east.

Bergamo is slightly overlooked but well worth a visit. Very picturesque old city, great restaurants and quite a bit going on. Itís also fairly progressive, veganism etc is quite big by Italian standards.

Yes, it's just under an hour by coach from BGY to the centre of Milan (on a good day).

And Bergamo's Cittŗ Alta is indeed bellissima !

Maybe that's because the name of the airport is Milan Bergamo?

Yes, we all know how that works.

To be fair Bergamo Airport (Milan Orio Al Serio) is actually only 28 miles outside of the centre of Milan.

Thatís less mileage than Gatwick is from London.

IIRC there was a Spitting Image with London Mount Pleasant Airport - "less crowded than Heathrow, more convenient that Stansted................ "

I've just and for some reason the links don't work even though I've only just read them.

You can still search routesonline using the Bergamo Airport code but nonetheless a railway link between Central Milan Railway Station and Milan Bergamo Airport was approved recently with construction already in progress.

The baggage system in T1 is still live and connected to the system in T2A, which is why there is the big black link from north side of T2 across to T1. In fact only just before Covid hit we only finished adding new baggage runs and extension to the T1 baggage system in the old T1 IDL area, as well as the BC97 new extension at apron level.

There are some more peripheral bits of T1 that will be due for demo next year.

Your obviously well informed on the matter and I really appreciate your in-depth reply.

I look forward to reading further updates regarding T1 in the near future and in particular news of anything due for demolition.

Started on Wednesday, STA 0950/0955, STD 1120, though LH's website currently only shows ops up to the end of this month.

Heathrow Airport has stated it will not re-introduce a cap on passenger numbers around Christmas. The UK's biggest airport said it was preparing for the biggest festive travel season in three years. Heathrow also predicted staffing would be back to pre-pandemic levels before the summer holidays.
