Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport (Italian: Aeroporto di Bologna-Guglielmo Marconi) (IATA: BLQ, ICAO: LIPE) is an international airport serving the city of Bologna in Italy. It is approximately 6 km (3.7 mi) northwest of the town center in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy, about 200 km (120 mi) south-east of Milan. The airport is named after Bologna native Guglielmo Marconi, an Italian electrical engineer and Nobel laureate. With 6,889,742 passengers handled in 2015, it is now the 7th busiest in Italy.

For the period 2011–2013, the Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport planned the restyling and expansion of the Terminal. The passenger terminal covers a total surface 36,100 m2, of which 5,500 m2 are shopping areas. It features 10 security checkpoints and 24 departure gates. Bologna airport grew in size, from the previous total surface of 3,100 m2 (33,000 sq ft) to the current total surface of 3,600 m2 (39,000 sq ft). The number of gates increased from 20 to 24. Even the security checkpoints increased from 7 to 10 and 25 additional toilet facilities have been opened throughout the airport. Greater emphasis has been placed on commercial activities (there are now 35 shops instead of the previous 29), and in particular, in airside, after security checks, the “air” commercial areas have doubled (+136%), while in landside increased by 38%. Moreover, a new baggage handling system (BHS) has been installed in the new single check-in area on the ground floor (with 64 Check-in Counters). Now there are 5 piers with 2 air bridges for the direct transfer of passengers from the terminal to the aircraft. The restyling has been completed in the fall of 2013.

Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport Reviews

★★☆☆☆
Very dirty in general, in particular toilets and parking! Men toilet even new ones, are smelling bad, without urinary. Never ending refurnishing works. Few seats close to the gates, especially nr 13 and 14 are ridiculous.
- Damiano

★★★★★
Aereoporto in espansione, molti voli a livello regionale ed internazionale, carenze su voli intercontinentali. La pulizia dei bagni è scarsa ed in generale poca in tutta l'aereo stazione. Nel complesso negli ultimi anni si è modernizzato notevolmente e l'attesa è più gradevole di un tempo. Mancano ancora i finger e il people mover. Hold on....
- Istvan

★★★★★
BLQ is a nice city airport that has been growing a lot in the last years. It's connected to the main and the secondary cities in Europe with some nice extra-EU destinations. The free Wi-Fi is a nice addition!
- Gianluca

★★★★★
Aeroporto piccolo ma ben organizzato, file ai check in veloci e bagni puliti. Peccato per la mancanza di voli intercontinentali...
- Francesca

★☆☆☆☆
While arriving from non-Schengen countries, you have to go through security control even if you're exiting in town and not flying further. There's just one control gate, and the lines of passengers it creates are crazy! We waited for more than an hour just to get to the passport control. Passport control was even worse. The officers were super lazy, E-Gate wasn't working. One of the worst airport arrivals experience EVER!
- spatari

★★★★☆
A nice and modern Airport but 6€ for a Oneway Busride to the Airport is way too much! (2,70€ in Berlin!)
- Christian Duvigneau

★★★★☆
Pretty swell regional airport. Surprisingly better than most European airports of this size. Baggage claim and customs was very fast. The lounge is decent, with an awesome feature: you can access directly from the lounge to a dedicated priority security lane, which is really fast.
- Ottobono Manfredi

★★★☆☆
The terminal has been recently renewed and is now full of shops. The usual problems remain, though: lack of seating in the departure area, extremely dirty and partly not working airside toilets, long waiting times for security. On the other hand baggage reclaim and immigration checks are relatively fast compared to other Italian airports.
- Gio

★★☆☆☆
Very long queue at the security checks on a Wednesday morning. Overpriced bus from Bologna Central station to reach the airport. Quite good range of shops and decent Wi-Fi connection. Beware the lack of seating in the Schengen area
- Gio

★★☆☆☆
The airport is definitely too small for the number of flights it handles. Huge queues at security Andrea passport control on extra-Schengen flights, people afraid of losing theirs, dirty toilets and crowded shops. With just four positions of passport control open, 5 extra-Schengen flights (included an Emirates B777) were scheduled to take off within 30 minutes - the chaos was insane.
