Milan Linate Airport History
The airport dates back to the 1930's, when it was built adjacent to Idroscalo of Milan. Back then, Taliedo Airport, situated only 0.62 miles or 1 km from Milan's southern limits, had become far too small to accommodate commercial traffic. It was designed as one of the world's first aerodromes, and became hopelessly outdated, when commercial air travel became more affordable and passenger numbers rose dramatically. The first Milan Linate Airport soon became too small itself and was rebuilt in the 1950's, and again in the 1980's. By then Italy had risen to one of the world's most popular tourist destinations and Milan had become one of Europe's most influential centers for design, especially in fashion.
