Ground transportation[edit]

By bus and train[edit]

The airport is about 6 kilometres (4 mi) from Bologna Centrale railway station. A shuttle bus service, route BLQ, runs between the station and the airport. In case of events at the Bologna Fiere trade fair venue, BLQ operates a direct connection between the Airport and the bus terminus Fiera Viale Aldo Moro.[15]

Once completed, the Marconi Express monorail will connect the airport to Bologna Centrale railway station with a travel time of seven minutes.[16] At the moment, the nearest railway station is Calderara-Bargellino railway station, about 4 km from the airport. However, there is no public transport connection between the airport and that railway station, and limited train services stop at Calderara Bargellino.

The airport has daily direct bus connections with Ferrara, Florence, Modena, Cervia, Ravenna, and Rimini, and three times a week with Ascoli Piceno.
