In order to improve vehicular flow inside the airport area for better passenger safety and in accordance with Enac Bologna n. 26/12 decree, the road system to the Main Terminal has changed to make easier the recognition of passenger and operator areas.
In the Terminal-front lane, the existing Authorized-only vehicular access sign becomes more efficient by activating an automatic barrier system.
Only authorized vehicles, equipped with barrier-opening device, can use this lane.
Public transport operators, taxis and chauffeur car hire that have an agreement with Bologna Airport are also authorized.
Other chauffeur service operators, tourist buses and minibuses can access the area by buying a special card at the Parking Control Office or withdrawing a payment ticket at the lane entry which allows you to access and park within the area (rates €10/hour or portion of hour).
The outer lane, once transit only, can be accessed by vehicles of passengers and their escorts by withdrawing the ticket at the entrance barrier, thus directly accessing parking lot P1 and the “Kiss&Fly” area to drop off and pick up passengers, which are free of charge for the first 10 minutes for all vehicles not exceeding 6 feet of height. This area is only available for a maximum of 2 hours to guarantee a fair rotation.
Parking for longer than 10 minutes and for vehicles exceeding 6 feet of height is charged.
In case of a longer stay, it is suggested to park in other car parks available at the airport, whose fees decrease according to how far the parking is located from the Terminal building.
The access is controlled by an automatic barrier system:
- Right lane: it is reserved only for emergency and authorized vehicles;
- Left lane: opened to everybody, it heads to the Express Premium car park and to the “Kiss&Fly”, drop-off zone, with 10-minute free parking for vehicles up to 1.85 m height.
For parking time over 10 minutes and for all vehicles over 1.85 m height, the service is with fees.
For long-stay parking, we recommend using other airport car park, with decreasing rates depending on the distance to the Main Terminal.
