Milan airport to train..how long will it take

We will be arrive at 11am, coming from Turkey to Milan on Thursday, April 11th how long will it take to go through customs? Is there a shuttle or do we need to take a taxi to the centrale train station? We would like to make the 13:10 train to Trento? Thanks

There is a shuttle from the Milan airport to centrale that leaves every 15 minutes or so - customs took me no time at all and once you come out into the main area peak around all the people waiting at international arrivals and there is a ticket booth and reader board that announces the next shuttle.
Good luck

Just to clarify, I think Amy is referring to a bus. There is train service but it goes to the other train station in Milan.

The bus shuttle from Malpensa is super easy to take. You literally walk outside the airport and there it is. Whisks you to Centrale in about 30 minutes. I highly recommend the shuttle bus.

Past Post: This was from Terminal 1 and very easy, from clearing Customs after baggage claim to the ticket booth to the bus stop are all just a "stone's throw" from each other. After you clear customs and enter into the terminal, the outside door exits are all marked. Inside between exit 5 & 6 is a ticket counter with a sign above it "Airport 2000". The bus stop is outside between exits 4 & 5. So after you buy your tickets go outside thru exit 5 and turn left and 20M ahead is bus stop No.4. My bus did make 1 stop before the train station but you'll know the station, you pass under an overpass (the train tracks-hidden) and then quickly turn right & stop alongside the (long) train station. I believe the ticket was only 8,000L which surprised me because in my planning notes I had ~13,000L and I started to worry that I bought the wrong ticket. It wasn't crowded when I took it in March but I have read one post of a crowded pushy mob all trying to board the bus. So have a Plan "B", peek outside if it's crowded go downstairs and take the Malpensa Express Train http://www.ferrovienord.it/webmxp/index.html to the Cardona Train Station and then a metro or taxi to the Centrale Train Station. Regards. Walter
