I have never been to this region. Which is the best airport for Lake Como and Lake Maggiore?
It depends on which town you're going to. However you'll find some useful information here:
You can take a Bergamo airport shuttle bus to Milan Central station, or a Bergamo airport shuttle bus to Bergamo train station.
Trains from Bergamo and Milan to Como San Giovanni, or Varenna Lake Como, and to Stresa Lake Maggiore

* Flying Ryanair check in online and note the luggage restrictions.

Hi, Linate is probably the best airport because it's nearer Central milan where you can get a train to any of the areas.
I agree that Linate is probably best. Another thing to take into consideration is the timing of the flights. I've booked flights for the same as last year - that is a morning flight to Linate and an evening one from Malpensa.
Malpensa airport lies right in the middle between lake Como and lake Maggiore
