I would avoid Starbus...lately after a change in the management of the company they are having issues with drivers and it happens their delays (around one hour!) are absolutely unacceptable

Re: anyone knows cheap taxi from Lugano To Malpensa airport?

Door-to-door I use www.tishuttlebus.ch

60 francs return for Malpensa from your door in the Lugano area.

Which is the same price as the bus from Lugano FFS....

Re: anyone knows cheap taxi from Lugano To Malpensa airport?

For GA Holders, it is CHF9.10 one way by the train to Malpensa from Luino ( plus a short walk to the terminal ) or CHF6 OW from Chiasso to Milano Centrale.

From Milano Centrale, there are some great deals by coach ( EUR5 OW or EUR9 RTN ):

I usually use this one. It's pretty reliable, and on-time.

While I know this post is about going to Malpensa, I also wanted to say generally that Lugano airport is pretty reasonably priced for flights. Much cheaper than you'd imagine for some more commonly traveled routes. If you factor in transportation, time, tolls and parking it takes to go to Malpensa, in the end flying from Lugano airport is pretty comparable.

They are generally reliable, but I missed this once because the bus left a bit early. Get there with ample time.

Cheap taxi from Lugano to Malpensa?

Maybe cheaper to buy a car!
A shuttle service makes sense here
