Book cheap flights to Bologna and have your taste buds tickled like never before...
Paper-thin slices of mortadella, mini mountains of Ferrari-red ragu, hand-folded rings of fresh tortellini - you have to be careful when looking for Bologna flights, as the city’s cuisine could have you drooling all over your screen.
While we can’t provide a napkin, we can get you a seat on one of the low-cost flights to Bologna from UK airports.
Direct flights to Bologna from Manchester and London are among the cheapest (you might not be able to eat a three-course meal as cheaply as you can fly return). Bargain fares are also available from airports such as Edinburgh and Bristol, among many others.
Cheap fares, a journey time of just two hours, a social-media foodie frenzy - so what else gets bums on seats on flights to Bologna? Well, there’s a cracking line-up of annual events (music and food dominate the calendar here), pretty public squares that revolve around fountains (as they tend to in Italy), historic landmarks and towers (one of which leans), plus a handful of motoring museums for supercar enthusiasts (you probably weren’t expecting that, were you?).
Trust TravelSupermarket to make Travel Super in surprising, appetising, mesmerising Bologna.
With a good choice of non-stop flights from the UK, Bologna is fast becoming a short break destination – especially for foodies...
Ryanair has the widest choice of departures flying the two-and-a-half hour route from Bristol, Edinburgh, Stansted and Manchester. Additional London departures are offered by British Airways from Heathrow and easyJet from Gatwick.
You can also find connecting flights from other UK airports. Air France operates through Paris, KLM flies via Amsterdam and Lufthansa connects over Frankfurt. Connections add up to two to three hours to the flying time.

Flights arrive at Bologna Airport, or, to give it its proper name, Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport (BLQ). Try saying that with a mouth full of ragu.
Aerobus is a bus shuttle than runs between the airport and Bologna’s central railway station (Stazione Centrale). It runs every 11 minutes, and tickets cost six euros.
Taxi fares between the airport and central destinations are in the region of 15 to 20 euros.
There’s much to see and do around Bologna, so while you might not need your own wheels for city sightseeing, having a car makes it easy to visit nearby sights at a pace that suits you. Pre-book car hire in Bologna with TravelSupermarket and arrange to collect your vehicle upon arrival at the airport.
Booked cheap flights to Bologna? Ready to Travel Super? Excellent. Get your ideal hotel in the bag and you’re ready to go…
If easy access to the sights takes priority over price, you can’t go wrong by looking for a hotel within the central ring road of Bologna (this is easy to spot on our useful map view of Bologna’s best hotels).
The closer you get to the historic centre – take Piazza Maggiore, the main square, as your central point – the more hotels seem to cost. But if your budget won’t stretch to five-star service, there are also plenty of mid-range business hotels offering good facilities and reasonable rates.
Even budget hotels can be found at the heart of Bologna. But beware: they tend to fill up fast, so don’t wait too long to snap up your ideal hotel once you’ve booked your flights to Bologna.
