Malpensa Prime terminal to open in July
Thanks to its iconic form, finish and colour, SEA Prime's new terminal at Malpensa is recognisable both from the sky and the ground. It has opened in time to receive diverted Linate movements during its temporary closure.

Linate and Malpensa airport management company SEA Prime is to open a new Malpensa Prime terminal in July 2019. It stands in a dedicated area of the airport between Terminals 1 and 2 and has its own apron of around 50,000 sqm in addition to a 5,000 sqm hangar. Its polyhedral structure covers an area of approximately 1,400 sqm, and the materials have been chosen to amplify the natural brightness of the environment.

Five lounges welcome passengers and crew with customised services such as a conference centre, limousine service and concierge.

Malpensa Prime completes the accessibility for business and general aviation passengers and operators not only to the city of Milan but also to Lombardy, to several areas of Piedmont, to the south of Switzerland and numerous other locations such as the lakes, the ski resorts and a total of 18 UNESCO sites,” comments CEO Chiara Dorigotti. “In our vision, Malpensa Prime is a complementary service to the one offered by Milano Prime in Linate; the latter, in fact, benefits from its nearness to the heart of the city, from which it is only seven kilometres, while with Malpensa Prime we can also serve passengers with first and business class services.”

Malpensa Prime opens in time to mitigate the closure of Linate airport from 27 July to 27 October, for refurbishment works on the runway and the commercial aviation terminal.

SEA Prime closed 2018 with approximately 26,000 movements, 11.4 million euros in revenue, an EBITDA of 5.1 million euros and net profit of 2.5 million euros, up 7.8 per cent on 2017.
