Malpensa among 11 airports chosen for preclearance by USA

Milan, 4 November 2016 – Malpensa has been selected by the government of the United States as one of 11 new airports around the world which will be able to carry out preclearance operations.
This means that all passengers flying from Milan to the United States will soon be able to undergo immigration checks at Malpensa, so that when they touch down in USA they can leave the airport straight away and thus avoid queues at passport control. If they are catching a connecting flight, they will not be required to collect their luggage.
