Business Aviation Tips and In-flight Catering for Milan, Italy

Milan, Italy (Italian name: Milano) is a faced-paced city known around the world for its high-fashion, rich culture and economic importance – including Italy’s stock exchange. The typical travel pattern for Milan follows the temperatures, with summer being the peak and winter being the low season. Whether you are flying corporate to a business-related event or a private family to a cultural experience, you are in for a treat when visiting this global city.

The city has a convenient location in Northern Italy which makes it a natural choice as a hub for various means of transportation. When operating to Milan by aircraft, the most convenient destination may be Linate Airport (LIN / LIML), depending upon what part of the greater metropolitan area you will be visiting mostly. Milano Malpensa Airport (MXP / LIMC) and Bergamo Orio Al Serio Airport (BGY / LIME) are also nearby. In-flight catering is available at these locations through the Air Culinaire Worldwide Network.

La Scala hosts many cultural events including ballet, opera and concert performances. The season opens in December, and the theatre has a packed calendar all year long. Twice a year, all eyes in the fashion industry are on Milan for Fashion Week or “Milano Moda Donna.” A week in February is dedicated to fall and winter fashions and a week in September focuses on spring and summer ensembles. Both events draw crowds interested in high-fashion from the world’s top names in couture. Another huge event for the city is the Milan Furniture Fair or “Salone del Mobile di Milano,” the largest furniture event in the world.

Each region of Italy has its own unique cuisine, and Milan is no exception. Here you will find that risotto is a more popular part of dishes than pasta, and the most popular animal-based protein choices are veal and beef. If you enjoy wiener schnitzel, be sure to try “cotoletta alla Milanese,” a veal dish that is unique to the city. Gorgonzola here will be some of the freshest you have ever tried since it comes from a nearby village which is was named after. Other locally produced cheese varieties include quartirolo, mascarpone and taleggio.
