The small regional airport serving the city of Bologna is named after its most famous son, engineer and Nobel Laureate Guglielmo Marconi, inventor of the radio. Located 6km (almost 4 miles) from the city, Bologna G Marconi Airport (BLQ) is seeing steadily rising traffic, as Bologna becomes an increasingly popular business and tourism destination.
Flights to Bologna Airport are available on many well-known airlines from cities all over Europe, including London, Dublin, Athens, Vienna, Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Copenhagen and Stockholm. There are even more connections to other cities within Italy.
As Bologna is perfectly situated between popular tourist destinations such as Milan, Genoa, Pisa, Florence, San Marino, Venice, and Verona, it offers a great opportunity to escape the queues of the larger hubs. The small size of the airport makes for a hassle-free experience; a perfect end to a holiday sampling the delights of northern Italy.
