The overall objective of the Re-MXP project is the improvement of the resilience of the Milan Malpensa (MXP) airport against climate change and natural hazards through a five-year modernization process of this transport infrastructure.

The Milan Malpensa airport resilience will be increased through the implementation of infrastructure upgrades and the development of a smart monitoring system. Indeed, improvement of drainage system for flooding risk mitigation, upgrades of strategic components for mitigating the seismic risk and development of a smart monitoring system will be carried out.

Milan Malpensa airport represents a node of the TEN-T Core Network, and it is the second biggest in Italy for the number of passengers handled and the biggest in the country for goods transported. In this framework, the overall objective of the Re-MXP project is in full agreement with the political priorities at European level, which foster actions related to safe and secure mobility in the framework of the Connecting Europe Facility - Transport (CEF2) Call for proposals.


Improve the drainage system as flooding risk mitigation - Measures in 5 critical areas. Develop a multi-hazard smart monitoring system to provide real-time knowledge of infrastructural behaviour under operational and exceptional climate conditions. Upgrade the Passengers Terminal 1 mainly reinforcing the building's structure as seismic risk mitigation - works into 6 lots.


Using new bearings devices.
Installing anti-seismic devices such as Shock Transmitter Units.
Improving the resistance and/or ductility of elements or parts of the structure.
Deploying sensors for managing both flooding and seismic risks.
Implementing a remote system to collect and process real-time data from sensors deployed.
Building new infiltration wells.
Constructing underground storage tanks.
Revamping the existing infiltration systems.
Upgrading some sections of pipe network.
Improving the pavement drainage system.


Reduction of the restrictions in operational flights and airport closures. Prevention of negative consequence due to seismic incidents. Reduction in operating costs for the airport operator, in externalities (due to diverted traffic in case of airport disruption) and time saving for passengers potentially.
