The bus does not have a separate luggage compartment, so you have to carry the luggage on the bus with you.

Important! Make sure to ask the driver if the bus stops at the airport, as some of them don’t! The buses that run to the airport from Bergamo usually have a picture of a plane or have the word Aeroporto displayed on the front of the bus.
