I've just seen your other post so I know know it's Malpensa, anyway the best route would be train to Milan Central station, then train to Mestre, you can get the schedule on www.fsitaliane.it click on the English version on the top left of the page.

Thanks. I have travelled with Trentalia in the past.

I don't think one can book too far ahead from airport to Milan Central, I tried to look at the fare for next week & it wrote that it wasn't possible to book so far in advance.

There is no point booking ahead the airport train - do book ahead the Milan to Mestre train though, if you take a 'freccia bianca' (fast train) where early bird fares are available.

Note however that if your flight were late, your discounted ticket could be useless.

It is best not to buy in advance. You do not know whether your plane will be delayed or by how much. Discounted tickets are worthless if you miss the train, and even full price Base tickets are worthless one hour after scheduled departure.

Buy tickets from Malpensa to Mestre at Malpensa.

Trenitalia:

Use the Italian train station names when making a purchase on the Trenitalia website: Ve. Mestre for Mestre, Venezia S. Lucia for Venice, for example, and Roma Termini for Rome.
