An inauguration in grand style, with a presentation by the Lombard Presidnet Roberto Maroni and the Minister of Transport Graziano Delrio, for the "new" Terminal 1 of the Milano Malpensa airport. The works, which took a year and a half almost and cost about 30 million euros, have involved the entire complex, for a total of 18,000 metres squared, using above all steel, glass and also Candoglia marble for the floors, the same as that in the Duomo of Milan.

"The government continues to bet on Malpensa because we think that this is one of the main access points to our Country and to our economy", said the Minister Delrio. "Expo visitors will find Malpensa more beautiful and surely more efficient, an airport in which it is pleasant to stay in. We turn a page, the restyling is a good start before the beginning of the Exhibition", stated Pietro Modiano, President of the SEA Group, the company that manages the Milanese hubs. 

The Terminal 1 has today has total surface area of 350,000 msq, 90 embarkation gates and up to 270 check-in desks, 41 mobile pontoons, and the absolute new deal for Italian airports, is that it can contemporaneaously host two Airbus A380, embarking passangers through 3 boardwalks. The security controls, optimised with respectto the past with 21 posts, are already functioning, as are the passport controls, which are now 24 against the 8 of the past. The real asset of the new Malpensa however is the shopping mall13,000 metres squared dedicated to shopping and food services, with the great brands of fashion and made in Italy. The duty free is also a Pharaonic feat that, with its 2,500 metres squared, is among the largest in Europe.
