Rome Leonardo da Vinci (FCO) Airport

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).

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).
Also, at the Airport's railway station the Leonardo Express Train runs twice an hour to Rome's Termini station, a trip of 31 minutes.
NEW: Two new electronically-monitored approaches to the terminals have just been added:  (a) 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.  (b) The Stop&Go area - a limited traffic zone (ZTL) - is only for authorized operators.

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. 

Since March 2014, passenger can count on more on-time flights, reduced taxi times and lower fuel consumption & emissions - due to integration between ADR & ENAV using 'Airport Collaborative Decision Making' (A-CDM) procedures, enabling FCO to send information on the status of all departing flights to the Eurocontrol Network Management.

In July 2014 it was announced that passenger satisfaction regarding overall service quality had reached 94 percent!

Leonardo da Vinci Airport has four passenger terminals - T1, T2, T3 & T5. 

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

Present and future Airport Developments:  1. According to some news from other sources Pier C was to be built with 16 airbridges & 8  rmote boarding gates.  However, neither the FCO site nor any other site has follow-ups on this. 
2. Linking  the terminal complex to the long-term Economy parking facility & Cargo City via a ground rapid transit system (GRTS) .
