Motorways:

By busEdit

A shuttle bus service, route Aerobus (BLQ), used to run between the station and the airport before the advent of Marconi Express. In case of events at the Bologna Fiere trade fair venue, BLQ operated a direct connection between the Airport and the bus terminus Fiera Viale Aldo Moro.[26] Route BLQ has been withdrawn as of the 18th November 2020, with the introduction of the Marconi Express[27]

The only TPER bus connection available to and from the airport is route 54, between the Airport and Borgo Panigale.

The airport has daily direct bus connections with Ferrara, Florence, Modena, Cervia, Ravenna, and Rimini, and three times a week with Ascoli Piceno.

By trainEdit

The nearest railway station is Calderara-Bargellino railway station, about 4 km from the airport. However, there is no public transport connection between the two.
