No, from Rho. It's closer than Porta Garibaldi and Centrale. 39 km Vs. 50

FedEx to turn Milan’s Malpensa into its third largest European hub

The Americans are betting on Italy and Milan’s Malpensa airport. FedEx, the world's biggest express delivery group, has started work on a new operational base in the heart of Northern Italy's most important airport. With more than 35,000 square feet, the new structure will triple the company's existing facility at the site and become its third-largest hub in Europe after Paris and Cologne, shipping merchandise to and from Italy.

The new structure, within Malpensa's Cargo City, will be done in a year and require a €15 million investment by SEA, the group that manages Malpensa. “We are here because we want to help the growth of Made In Italy,” said Alain Chaillé, vice president of southern european operations for FedEx. “We are here because we think that Italy is a great export nation, and that Lombardy, in particular, is a region that has a vocation for high-quality goods. That's why we decided to triple our presence at Malpensa.”

FedEx is Malpensa's fourth biggest client for overall shipping and the biggest with the US thanks to the direct flight Milan, Malpensa-Memphis. It's the only direct flight that can guarantee the fastest travel time from Northern Italy to the US. The expansion of Cargo City, which includes the FedEx warehouse, will allow it to double its transportation capacity. Some 500,000 tons of goods pass through Malpensa each year and thanks to new investment, within a few years, Malpensa will have annual capacity of almost 1 million tons.

It's already the biggest cargo airport in Italy, with a market share of 50% of total traffic. Vito Bernardi, FedEx’s managing director for properties, said the location is directly connected with “our other 35 sites across Italy. We have operated here as the only express shipping company since 1994. With this deal, FedEx is growing. It shows just how much we believe in the potential of future development of an airport that continues to invest heavily in cargo deliveries.”

With the new structure— Fedex will be able to manage 20,000 packages a day, versus the current 16,000. There will be 44 flights to and from Milan, with 480 weekly connections. It will also have a fleet of 27 trucks to pick up and deliver packages. Two hundred people from the FedEx team will work together in the new space.

Kinda of surprising that FedEx is expanding in Milan giving the fact they are taking over TNT in Leige. So FedEx is going to have four major hubs in Europe.

Milan Malpensa is Europe’s best connected airport among non-hubs

Milan's Malpensa is the number one airport in Europe for connectivity among non-hub airports and has climbed back to 2007 levels, when its main airline was flag carrier Alitalia. Malpensa was placed on top of the rankings in the Summer 2015 Intercontinental Air Accessibility Indicator, drawn up by the CLAS group, which compares European cities by measuring the number of direct air connections available on a weekly basis, also taking into consideration the socio-economic importance of the destinations. A factor of considerable importance since “one of the key boosts to the global competitiveness of a large metropolitan area is its intercontinental air connectivity,” business group Assolombarda's president, Gianfelice Rocca.

The study's findings, said Roberto Zucchetti, a CLAS group partner, “show how London has always been the point of reference in Europe in terms of intercontinental accessibility, obtaining the benchmark value of 100, followed by a set of cities whose hubs are of great significance (Paris, Frankfurt, Amsterdam) and Istanbul (a value of 71.9).” “Then there is another tier of cities, with airports served by a hub carrier, including Munich, Rome , Zurich, and Madrid,” he continued. “Among the cities whose airport system does not include a hub are Milan, with 32.7 if first in accessibility by far, Manchester with 17.7, and Barcelona 17.2.” With the Malpensa airport, Milan “reenters in the top 10 European cities, despite not operating like a hub since 2007.”

Looking at the CLAS study, Gianfelice Rocca pointed out that, “considering that 100 is what London scored for intercontinental air connectivity, Milan (32.7) is better off than Vienna (24.9) Brussels (22.6), Barcelona (17.2) and Berlin (10.1). But it's not enough. The Northwest of Italy is the area in which the majority of the population and the country's economic activities are concentrated. Taking into account that “Malpensa will never be a hub,” according to Rocca, “it would be advantageous to develop a relationship between low-cost airlines and traditional airline companies who offer intercontinental connections.”

As a matter of fact, EasyJet announced this week it is adding new routes and more airplanes at Malpensa and its smaller sister airport, Linate. RyanAir is also starting service from Malpensa on December 1. Furthermore, “it would be necessary to support the highest possible number of bilateral agreements with non-EU countries, making european and international norms more flexible”. Also citing the importance of “increasing the airport's catchment area.” “We are asking the airlines companies”, concludes Rocca, “to be bolder and to invest more in Malpensa.”

Sala hints at partial privatization of Milan's airports

Former Expo Milano 2015 Commissioner Giuseppe Sala won Democratic Party primaries with 42.3% of the votes, beating other three contestants. He has been picked by voters to run as the candidate for Milan mayor in the Spring 2016.

Among the points of his program there is the partial privatization of the SEA Group (the holding controlled by the city of Milan that owns both Malpensa and Linate airports). Sala said he will ask for some sort of national recognition for the city of Milan due to the significant presence of international investments and companies in and around the city. This recognition will allow the city to ask the government for more resources.

Regarding SEA, Sala faces a subject that has now been discussed for more than ten years by both the centre-right and centre-left. The problem is not only ideological, but also practical: on one hand the SEA Group involves private shareholders who would like to become the majority and to handle development projects with a more independent management; on the other hand, the company provides the city of Milan with share of profits that are really helpful when it comes to fixing the annual balance sheet.

Sala's proposal is to reduce public shareholding in the group: a partial sale with a sacrifice of voting rights. Sala's main target is to lighten the public influence when possible and to keep it in control only in presence of an unequivocally public service.

DHL cargo is announcing that they want to build a cargo hub at MXP in response to FedEx's choice to build a hub there.

New railway station at Malpensa Airport, Terminal 2.
By connecting Malpensa airport to the national and international rail network reaching it will be even easier and faster.

Intercontinental traffic up in 2016 for Malpensa, flights to China a major factor

China has been fundamental for Malpensa airport. Air traffic figures (provided by airport operator SEA) show 496,000 travelers overall between Malpensa and China in 2016. The Chinese airlines with direct flights and layovers in Lombardy are Air China and Cathay Pacific, who connect Milan with Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong.

Last year there were 130,000 passengers on the Malpensa-Shanghai route, a daily Air China flight (six times a week during the winter season); 96,000 passengers to and from Beijing, a flight operated by Air China seven days a week (four during the winter schedule); and 170,000 passengers to and from Hong Kong, a route operated by Cathay Pacific seven days a week.

By 2020 China will be the country with the most tourists abroad, according to a study by the World Tourism Organization. In 2005, China was seventh worldwide in international tourism spending, but since 2012 they have leapfrogged the United States and Germany to reach the top spot in the worldwide rankings.

Expanding air traffic rights and the designations of other airlines by the Chinese Civil Aviation Authority would increase the opportunities to develop connections between Italy and China. China Eastern, China Southern, Sichuan, Hainan and other companies would have the potential to open new connections with Milan. This is why the SEA is asking to government to try to “increase air traffic rights in the current bilateral agreement with Beijing, defining a specific amount of added frequencies for flights to/from Milan

Generally speaking, the SEA figures for 2016 show a slight increase in intercontinental traffic for Malpensa in comparison to last year: the overall number of passengers grew from 4,746,000 in 2015 to 4,796,000 in 2016 (50,000 more).

Cargo traffic has also increased: in 2016, more than 544,000 tons of goods passed through Malpensa's cargo city, versus 512,000 tons in 2015. China has also posted impressive numbers in terms of cargo, with Malpensa effectively being the favored Italian hub for incoming goods shipped from China.

Milan-China exports represent around 67% of all Italy-China exports. Malpensa has a central role in these goods, thanks to the aforementioned Air China and Cathay Pacific flights, as well as all-cargo companies like Cargolux Italia, Cathay Pacific Cargo, and Aerologic, who fly to Hong Kong four, three, and two times a week, respectively. Cargolux Italia also has a connection with Zhengzhou, with two flights a week. The volume of goods transported to these destinations from Malpensa has grown by 19% over the first 11 months of 2016. This trend is expected to continue over the upcoming years.

FedEx triples the size of its Milan airport logistics hub

FedEx has opened its newly expanded logistics hub at Malpensa airport's Cargo City, tripling the size of its facilities in Milan. The €15 million investment achieves two strategic goals: for FedEx, the new Malpensa base becomes the principal gateway for flights from Memphis (USA) to Southern Europe.

It's also strategic for SEA, the group which manages Malpensa’s airport and Cargo City, taking it closer to its goal of being able to move, over the next few years, one million tons of merchandise at Malpensa, doubling its current traffic (about 536,000 tons) and transforming the Milanese airport into the most important cargo stop in Southern Europe. The new logistics hub, highly automated and with state-of-the-art technology, spans 35,000 sqm and will boost the capacity for sorting package by 25%.

"The expansion of Malpensa is a key piece of our strategy of expanding our network", said David Binks, chairman of FedEx Europe. "Today, more than ever, companies are oriented towards global growth, which has driven up demand for air transport service in international markets". Over the last 12 months, the number of package sent from Italy to the rest of the world grew by double digits. FedEx has been working in Italy since 1986 and Malpensa became its main hub in 1992.

FedEx's larger Malpensa footprint goes hand in hand with the airport's expansion in the cargo sector. Its new operating base constitutes part of a total €100 million investment by SEA to strengthen infrastructure for merchandise delivery in the southern area of Malpensa’s Cargo City. SEA's plan is to double capacity. SEA said that it had recently launched a new plan to create another 50,000 sqm of warehouse space, within the airport structure dedicated to e-commerce operators both for FedEx and for other companies whenever they might need it.
