Il Caravaggio International Airport (IATA: BGYICAO: LIME), also known as Bergamo Orio al Serio Airport (Italian: Aeroporto di Bergamo-Orio al Serio), is in Orio al Serio, 2 nautical miles (3.7 kilometres; 2.3 miles) southeast of Bergamo in Italy.[1] The airport served 8,774,256 passengers in 2014 and is the fourth busiest in Italy. It is operated by SACBO (Società Aeroporto Civile Bergamo Orio al Serio).

It is popular with low-cost airlines, who sometimes call it Milan Bergamo Airport or Milan Orio al Serio Airport, despite its official name, due to its proximity to Milan (45 km (28 mi) away), which it serves together with Linate Airport and Malpensa Airport, the city's two actual airports. The operator of those two also holds a 31% stake in SACBO.[3]

The airport is named "Il Caravaggio" after the Baroque painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, who lived as a child at Caravaggio in the Province of Bergamo.[4]


Ground handling services are provided by the SACBO and Airport Global Services. Security services were formerly provided by SACBO with the supervision of the Polizia di Frontiera (Border Police), Guardia di Finanza (Italian Customs Police) and Ente Nazionale Aviazione Civile (Italy's Civil Aviation Authority). Due to labour disputes and costs the security services have been outsourced to a private security firm (Fidelitas).
