Could the Fiumicino Airport have been finished and opened in time for the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome? If not, was is completion/opening delayed to early 1961 because of any problems?

From today, you can also discuss developments and images from Ciampino Airport (also called Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport) since it is also part of Rome and to make this thread more efficient.

Aeroporti di Roma investing €12bn in Fiumicino transformation

Rome’s strategic position at the very heart of Italy means Fiumicino Airport has a vast catchment area, which is set to grow even further following the announcement of a new intermodal product. Significantly, Fiumicino is the first airport in Italy to integrate the air and rail transport systems, with Aeroporti di Roma (ADR) and Trenitalia – Italy’s state-owned main train operator – collaborating on a high-speed rail link that now connects Fiumicino with Bologna, Florence and Venice. In a wide-ranging interview with Airport Business in Rome, Lorenzo Lo Presti, CEO Aeroporti di Roma, discussed the impact of the new high-speed rail links, traffic growth, and ongoing infrastructure plans.

“The integration of the two transport systems – air and rail – will confirm the role of Fiumicino as the country’s hub, and extends the offering of flights via Fiumicino to the areas of Bologna, Florence and Venice,” Lo Presti explained. “The citizens of these cities, who currently reach their intercontinental destinations through other European airports, such as Frankfurt and Paris CDG, will be able to plan their journey from the capital’s airport.”

The Rome airport system handled 43.6 million passengers in 2014 – a 6.4% year-on-year increase – with 38.6 million at Fiumicino and five million at Ciampino. Over 100 airlines operate regular services from Fiumicino to 200 cities worldwide and, with connections to 30 destinations in Italy, the airport is ideal for extensive feeding operations to long-haul flights. “With the new intermodal product, we can offer all the carriers an excellent ‘starting point’ to successfully launch long-haul services. Rome’s geographic position makes it an ideal gateway to the Mediterranean and Middle East,” Lo Presti added.


ADR is working hard on an ambitious infrastructure plan, building on the successes of 2014, including strong traffic growth, the entry of new carriers at Fiumicino, and development of new routes. Lo Presti enthused that this is “only the starting point”. Traffic forecasts show growth to 100 million passengers at Fiumicino by 2044 – the end of the ADR concession.

There are three main elements to the infrastructure plans: a terminal revitalisation programme to increase the level of service and comfort for passengers in existing terminals; the Fiumicino South Completion Plan to double the terminal surface area, and upgrade the apron, taxiway systems and all airport subsystems, including loading bridges, baggage systems and technical plants; and the Fiumicino North Master Plan to extend the current airport boundary to the north with a new terminal, new runways, real estate development, and links to Fiumicino South. These expansion plans, alongside new road and rail connections, are fundamental to achieving the increased passenger traffic expected at Fiumicino.


The total investment in the Rome airport system is huge – €12 billion by 2044. The next key date is October 2016, when the Terminal 3 extension and new Boarding Area F at Fiumicino will be complete, adding a further 90,000sqm to cater for both Schengen and non-Schengen flights.

“Directly related to the terminal extension, we will also complete new baggage systems for Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 to increase capacity and technology standards,” Lo Presti commented.

Attention will then turn to Terminal 1, where a new check-in hall and new Pier A will be completed in 2019. A new Terminal 4 will be the final step in the Fiumicino South Completion Plan. “This is only part of the plan – our attention is already oriented towards Fiumicino North. The extension of the current airport was already considered as a safeguarded area for development since the 1970s,” Lo Presti added.

Ciampino Airport is another fundamental asset for ADR, which last July delivered a new master plan to Enac – the Italian Civil Aviation Authority. This included the scope to reduce the number of flight movements, taking environmental constraints into account.

Ryanair pulling out of 2 Italian Bases and one further airport in 2016

Ryanair are closing 2 Italian bases, Alghero and Pescara in 2016. They are also pulling completely out of Crotone which is not a base. By winter 2016 both Alghero and Pescara will only have very vey limited Ryanair services.

I also think the Comiso/Catania 2 step in Sicily will not last very long and that they will pull completely out of one of these two later this year as well.

Avancorpo T1. L’intervento riguarda l’estensione del Terminal 1 sul fronte dei piazzali aeromobili. Ampliando la profondità del Terminal, potranno essere inseriti nuovi spazi dedicati ad attività commerciali, aree food & beverage e sale VIP. . L’Avancorpo del T1 sarà l’elemento di collegamento tra il Terminal e la nuova area di imbarco A.

Ampliamento a Ovest del T1. L’intervento riguarda l’estensione sul fronte ovest del Terminal 1 verso le aree oggi occupate dal Terminal 2 e dall’area di imbarco C. Del primo si prevede la demolizione e della seconda la riconfigurazione in maniera da creare nuove aree da destinare a gate e servizi commerciali, nonché al potenziamento dei sottosistemi oggi presenti nei Terminal, quali check-in, controlli di sicurezza, nastri riconsegna bagagli, etc,.

Area di imbarco A.
Il nuovo molo all’estremità est del sistema aerostazioni sarà organizzato su due livelli e un mezzanino, dedicati ai passeggeri. In totale potranno essere accolti 14 gate dotati di loading bridge e 10 gate remoti. Il collegamento con il T1 avverrà tramite un passaggio sopraelevato che condurrà verso un ampliamento dell’Avancorpo del Terminal 1.
