There are two airports within comfortable driving distance of Piedmont though the closer of the two is Turin (TRN). A drive from Turin to the centre of Alba will take between 1hr15 or 1hr30 (depending on how slowly you go once you get into the beautiful hills of Piedmont!).
With year-round flights from London Gatwick (LGW) and now London Heathrow (LHR) terminal 5, British Airways has the largest selection of flight options to Turin.
The other airline worth looking at is Ryanair, however it is worth noting that these these flights depart from Stansted Airport.
The second airport, located a little further from Piedmont is Milan Malpensa (MXP), with a driving time between 1hr45 – 2hr. There are more flights from the UK to Milan Malpensa, including direct from Cardiff (CWL), Edinburgh (EDI), Birmingham(BHX) and Manchester (MAN), as well as Stansted (STN), Gatwick (LGW) and Luton (LTN).
Airlines include: British Airways, Ryanair, FlyBe and EasyJet.
