Milan Linate Airport (IATA: LIN; ICAO: LIML) is one of three international airports in Milan, the second-largest city in Italy after Rome. The other airports are Malpensa and Bresso airports but Milan Linate is closest to the city. It is about 5 miles east of Milan’s city center.
Linate is named after the small village in which it is located in the cities of Segrate, where most of the airport buildings are located, and Peschiera Borromeo, where most of the airfield is located.
When it was built in the 1930s, the airport was called Airport Enrico Forlanini, after the Milan-born inventor and aeronautical pioneer (helicopters, hydrofoils and dirigibles).
In the years since, the airport has been completely rebuilt twice, once in the 1950s and again in the 1980s.
Linate Airport’s proximity to Milan city makes it ideal for business and corporate general aviation jets, domestic flights and short-haul international flights. It has two runways and serves about 8.3 million passengers a year. It is easy to charter a private jet to the other airports in Italy or anywhere in the world at Linate.

Renting a Jet to LIN
When you think of Milan, you are likely to think of haute couture – and understandably so – because Milan is one of the Big Four fashion cities of the world.
Twice a year, Milan joins New York, London and Paris to unveil designers’ lines of collections, one for spring and summer fashions, the other for fall and winter.
However there is more to Milan, located in the northern Lombardy region, than just designer clothing. The national stock exchange is in Milan, making it the country’s financial hub. It is also home to many fine restaurants, shops and Leonardo da Vinci’s mural of “The Last Supper.”
VIP Events in Milan
Milan has been associated with high fashion for more than 60 years. Milan Fashion Week, which was first held in 1958, is part of the global Big Four fashion weeks. The others are in New York, London and Paris.
There are two shows a year, one for spring/summer collections and the other for fall/winter collections. The spring/summer show is held in late September; the fall/winter show in late February.
There are also Men’s Fashion Weeks. Milano Moda Uomo displays international menswear trends and up-and-coming brands in Italian fashion. Fall/winter is held in mid-January; spring/summer in mid-June.
Tourists flock to the city – many by chartering private jets into LIN – as more than 40 shows each season are presented on runways in the most elegant venues possible, often in palaces.
The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este draws millionaires and billionaires to see some of the world’s rarest and most valuable historic cars.
First held in 1929, the heyday of aristocratic cars, it has become a tradition for the rich and famous.

The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este owes its place atop the world’s prestigious historic car shows to its elegance, its storied tradition and its location at the beautiful Grand Hotel Villa d’Este on the shores of Lake Como.
In other words, the prestigious event is about much more than cars. The participants and aficionados in attendance, the surrounding gardens, the buildings of the Villa d’Este and Villa Erba and Lake Como give the event an air of aristocracy not felt at other car events.
It is held at the end of May with more than 50 historic cars, built between the 1920s and 1980s, on display.
A panel of jury members selects the historic cars and awards the Best of Show prize – the BMW Group Trophy. This is presented to the automobile that expresses beauty, passion and uniqueness.
There is also a prize for the people’s favorite, the Coppa d’Oro Villa d’Este, which is decided by the votes of attendees at the show. Lake Como is about 50 miles from Linate Airport.
Another must-see event for the A-list traveler coming into Linate Airport is Opening night of La Scala Once the place to see and be seen by 18th-century Milanese nobles, opening night of La Scala opera season is now the place to see and be seen by a modern and moneyed crowd.
Considered by many to be the high society event of Milan, opening night takes place every December 7, in honor of St. Ambrose, the patron saint of Milan. It marks the beginning of a season of drama, symphony and elite crowds that runs through May.
Perhaps the most widely known and respected opera house in the world, La Scala, which seats a demanding crowd of about 2,800, has been the venue sought by the world’s greatest operatic composers and singers.
Teatro alla Scala, as the Italians call it, has great historical and social importance to Milan and the entire international opera community. A short documentary made in association with The Guardian will help you understand the history and elegance of the famous La Scala Theater.
If you are chartering a private jet into Milan as a tourist, you will likely want to see The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci in the Cathedral of Santa Maria Nascente, which the Milanese call “Il Duomo.” It is one of the largest churches in the world, holding up to 40,000 people.
The Last Supper is a true mural, painted directly on the wall of the church by Leonardo da Vinci in 1494-1498. To help preserve the painting, which represents the last meal Jesus had with his disciples, only 25 people at a time are allowed in the dining hall of the former Dominican convent where it is located.
Wondering how big the world’s most famous mural is? It is nearly 15 feet tall and 30 feet wide.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to stop for customs when I fly on a private jet?Passengers on all international private charter flights will have to stop at customs. In certain countries, you may have to go through customs at a specific port of entry; for example, you must stop in Tahiti to perform customs checks en route to Bora Bora. You’ll also need to stop at the first port of entry when entering the U.S. from Mexico.
How much rest does the crew need before they can depart again?Crew members are required to have a 10-hour rest period within each 24-hour cycle. The maximum duty day is 14 hours and must be followed by a 10-hour rest period at their hotel. When scheduling a flight, operators usually account for 12 hours of rest instead of 10. These extra two hours allow the crew time to get to their hotel, rest for the required time, and return to the airport.
How long does a fuel stop for a private jet flight take?The average fuel stop takes 45–60 minutes. To speed up fuel stops, the operator, or pilots may call ahead, so a fuel truck is waiting for the aircraft on arrival. For smaller jets, a fuel stop can take as little as 30 minutes.
Will my private jet charter use the same airport as a commercial airline?No. When you charter a private jet, you generally fly into a private airport. However, you could access the same airports as a commercial airline if you request to do so or if there are no private airport options. However, using a large mainstream airport like Los Angeles International or London Heathrow is often a bad choice for private jets, as flying to a smaller regional private airport is much faster and often makes for a more luxurious experience.
Is the age of an aircraft a safety factor?Aircraft age is not a safety factor. However, if the aircraft is older and hasn’t been refurbished properly, it may cause flyers some inconvenience, such as overheating, faulty air conditioning, or faulty plumbing in the lavatory.
How much luggage am I allowed to bring on a private jet?As a rule of thumb, each seat on a light or midsize jet equates to one passenger and one item of luggage. Each item of luggage is considered to be the standard 23 kilograms, or about 50 lbs. Large jets are designed for long-range trips, which typically involve longer stays, so you can carry more than one item of luggage per person.
Are there aircraft that are wheelchair accessible?There are many aircraft that are wheelchair accessible. Most of them are large jets or above and have a straight aisle. If the jet has a zigzag aisle – like the Falcon 900 – it will be difficult to maneuver the wheelchair onboard the aircraft. You’ll also need the right type of wheelchair; many motorized wheelchairs won’t fit and can’t be collapsed. If this is the case, you’ll need a smaller, temporary wheelchair. Some aircraft operators have smaller wheelchairs that can be used. Please speak with your Paramount private jet expert to review your aircraft options.
Can I fly with large sums of cash?Yes, you can. This is a common occurrence for many private jet clients. You can fly with up to $5 million in cash as long as you declare that cash when coming through customs. For domestic trips, there’s no limit and no need to declare it.
Which private jets come with flight attendants?In the United States, large jets and above are required to have flight attendants onboard; in Europe, flight attendants are used on midsize jets and above. Flight attendants require their own seats. Larger jets and above have a jump seat near the cockpit for the flight attendant to use, meaning the attendant generally stays out of the cabin.
Which airports offer ramp access, allowing the client to drive their car right up to their private jet?Private jet clients can often have a limo drive them right up to the private jet, or even drive their own car to the plane. That said, different airports have different policies, and some may not offer ramp access. Please speak with your Paramount Aviation Advisor to review your options for a given trip.
Do private jets come with Wi-Fi?Many private jets do have Wi-Fi, and it’s increasingly available free of charge on U.S. domestic flights. On international flights, prices range from $3.00-$8.50 USD per megabyte used. This means that opening up social media sites that are rich in images and videos could quickly cost you $20 – and downloading a feature-length movie could cost thousands!
When is on-demand private jet charter better than buying a block of hours?Private jet charter can be a lot cheaper than buying a block of hours for a one-way flight, as you can access floating fleets or an empty leg to reduce the cost. With a block of hours, the price covers a round trip. If you only fly one-way, you are effectively paying double.
What is a carbon-neutral flight?Every aircraft burns jet fuel and emits a certain amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere. This can be offset via one of several carbon offset programs that allow private jet clients to purchase a certain number of carbon credits to offset the emissions from their flights. A carbon-neutral flight is one that offsets the carbon emissions it uses via a formal process.
Can I have a flexible departure time for my private jet flight?Yes, it is possible to have a flexible departure when flying privately. Operators typically offer a 30-minute to two-hour window, but you can request a longer window as long as it doesn’t interfere with the maximum crew duty day or their next scheduled flight. Please confirm with your Paramount Aviation Advisor at the time of booking your jet.
When should I hire a Boeing Business Jet?Boeing Business Jets (BBJs) have unique amenities that extend far beyond sheer size and are often equipped with 1-2 bedrooms and 2-3 bathrooms (one more of those bathrooms may even offer stand-up showers.) These airliner-based executive aircraft also feature tall or ‘stand-up’ cabins that are also longer and wider than more typical corporate aircraft.
How soon can I have a private jet ready from the time I call in the request?Generally speaking, with as little as 4 hours of notice. However, we have had wheels up in as little as 32 minutes from the time our client called us to book the flight and had them in the air. It depends on a few factors, such as how long it takes for the pilots to arrive at the airport (generally, there is a 2-hour call-out time for the pilots), and whether the aircraft is ready to go at the airport with no repositioning needed. Our Jet Card members enjoy faster booking since they have funds on account and can confirm a flight with a simple email.
Can I access my luggage while in flight?On most private jets, you will be able to access your luggage during the flight. That’s because luggage and passengers are situated on the same level. This is in contrast to commercial airlines, where checked luggage is stored in a cargo hold. On large private jets, luggage is often stored in a compartment behind the lavatory, which means easy access to your bags.
When are private jet charter landing and takeoff slots applicable?A landing or takeoff slot is simply a small window of time in which your aircraft is scheduled to fly in or out of the airport. You will need a landing and takeoff slot if you fly to a high-density airport in the United States or one that is hosting a special event with a significant number of aircraft arriving and departing. If you’re flying internationally, you will need a landing and takeoff slot for all major European cities. Please check with your Paramount Aviation Advisor at the time of booking for a specific route.
What kind of in-flight catering is available on a private jet?Other than the standard snacks and drinks, you can order local cuisine options for your catering on board. In short, anything that doesn’t need to be cooked can be ordered; hot food must be precooked and then warmed on board.
Can I bring pets with me on private jet flights?Of course! Just let us know in advance. The majority of the operators and aircraft owners allow pets onboard. In some cases, a small cleaning fee may apply. That said, there are specific requirements that must be met when traveling with your pet, including making sure that all documentation and vaccination records for your pet(s) are correct and up-to-date. Dogs and cats must also be at least eight weeks old and weaned when traveling within the U.S.
