After the terrible event how took place on Milan Linate airport last Monday morning, the Italian aviation authority decided to close the R6 runway crossing and to put on service as soon as possible the new ground radar.
Very sad what happened and no comment about the grund radar story.

But some news coming from the future of Linate.

Actually Linate is operating under a special law who regulated the number of slots, flights number per carriers and destinations.
The Linate-Rome FCO route hasn't any flights number restrictions, but due to the few number of slots only AZ and AP could offer a great schedule.
On the LIN-London route each single carriers could have max 3 daily flights.
2 daily flights are allowed on these routes to:
1 daily flights per carrires to:

It's forbidden code-sharing.
Airport capacity:20 flights per hour.

This is the real situation:

during some hours (like at the SAS crashed) there were scheduled 25 flights per hours.
If you look at the timetable you could see a lot of code-sharing flights expecially between LH and AP.
In order to have as many as flights possible on some domestic routes AZ use for their flight the AZ team, express or Eurofly flight-code, but it use its own aircrafts.

What do you think about this situation??
Do you think it was better the first decision how took the Italian govern 4 years ago to keep only the LIN-FCO without the customs and moved all the other flights in MXP?? (this decision was blocked by the EU commision after the high pressure of some big carriers like BA,LH,AF and SK....)

Why don't they close Linate and just expand Malpensa?? It has a horrible layout, from what I can see on this Jeppesen Chart...

I think the reason why they don't close Linate is political than others.
LIN is only 8 Km from downtown Vs 46 Km for MXP.

AZ pressure to keep the LIN-FCO cash-cow route:
on this route of 2.750.000 pax per year they have only the AP competition and they could keep their ridiculus high and crazy fares....

Allthough closing LIN is bad news for many business people I think Leftseat86 is right. Close the airport down (for scheduled traffic at least).

I'd move all the traffic to MXP except LIN-FCO.
The first decision was the right one!!!!!!
