How to Get to the Cagliari Airport Train Station
If you are coming from the Arrival Terminal, look for the yellow signs that say, “To Trains.” Head straight up the long hall up to the elevators. You can get on the two moving conveyors to take you to the train station, or take the elevator. Either will get you there though if you have lots of luggage in tow, the elevator might be best.
On your way to the Departure Terminal, it can be a rough time if you’ve got a lot of luggage because there’s no elevator when you get off the train. But there is a long conveyor that you can take to the parking building. You can choose to go outside or take the escalators to the elevated tunnel.
Each will take you to the train, however the first track takes you to the Arrival Terminal on the ground floor. The second one takes you to the Departure Terminal on the first floor. Elevators can bring you to either of these floors in this area. You will also find places to eat and shops to spend your time while you await your departing flight in this location.
