Yep it's true, they're closing an airport that handles 10 million passengers a year! We've been forced to relocate operations to Bergamo LIME for the duration of works. Usually it's 3 weeks every 20 years or so, but this time it's for 3 MONTHS during peak season! https://www.lacittachevola.it/en/new-linate.html

Schedules will be updated as soon as I get chance, however for now you can fly to Bergamo LIME and use the Divert feature with the reason Destination Closed
