Rome Leonardo da Vinci FCO Airport Overview

Rome Leonardo da Vinci Airport FCO - better known as 'Fiumicino Airport', is Italy's largest Airport and is one of two major Airports serving the 'Eternal City' of Rome and its surroundings (the other is Ciampino).  Both airports are managed by ADA (Aeroporti di Roma).
In July 2014 it was announced that passenger satisfaction regarding overall service quality had reached 94 percent!

FCO Airport is located 32 km southwest of the Rome, and is accessible via A91 Roma-Fiumicino, a 6-lane motorway.  It can easily be reached from Rome's surrounding ring road, taking the Fiumicino (A12) exit and following signs guiding to the Airport. (The G.R.A. urban motorway to the Roma Fiumicino motorway takes you directly to the airport).
The Kiss&Go area - a controlled traffic zone (ZTC) - is for drivers headed for Terminals 1, 2  3 - allowing for a 15-min. stop in that area - while the Stop&Go area - a limited traffic zone (ZTL) - is only for authorized operators.
The Leonardo Express Train departs the Airport's railway station twice an hour to Rome's Termini station, taking 31 minutes.

With five long runways and an estimated 37 million yearly passengers, Leonardo da Vinci Airport is hub to Alitalia, Air Alps, Blu-Express & EastyJet, and is served by a myriad of international airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe. 

The on-Airport Hilton Airport Hotel (tel. +39 (0)6 65258) is connected to the passenger terminals and the train station by a skybridge.

Leonardo da Vinci Airport has four passenger terminals - T1, T2, T3 & T5.  
Because of ongoing problems at Terminal 3 due to fire damage in May 2015 (detailed at 'Airport Maps') it is absolutely important that passengers check with their airline as to current flight status - prior to their departure from home.
