Milan Malpensa International Airport is the largest airport in Lombardy, and the main airport servicing Milan. The airport, located 49 kilometres northwest of Milan, has two terminals and two runways, as well as a dedicated cargo terminal. SHORT HISTORY The first flight occurred here on May 27, 1910, when the Caproni brothers flew their flying machine. In the years that followed, the area was transformed into a more formal airfield, and the place developed into the largest aircraft production center in Italy. During the 1920s and 1930s, the airfield hosted two squadrons of the Italian Air Force. In September 1943, Malpensa airfield was taken over by Nazi Germany’s Luftwaffe, when the northern Italy was invaded by Hitler. Malpensa Airport commenced commercial operations on November 21, 1948. In 1952, the Municipality of Milan took control of the airport, and decided to develop Malpensa as an international and intercontinental gateway, while the other airport of Milan, Linate, would handle the domestic flights.
