An airport tailored to the needs of travellers
Also known as Leonardo da Vinci, Fiumicino is Rome's main airport. Its origins date back to 1961, when it was inaugurated as a civilian airport. Over the years it has been expanded and modernized to cope with the increase in air traffic and today it is one of the largest and busiest airports in Europe, with over 40 million passengers per year.
It has four terminals, each with numerous dining areas, shops and passenger services: Terminal 1 is dedicated to domestic and international flights, while Terminal 2 is mainly used by low-cost airlines. Terminal 3 is the largest and hosts intercontinental flights, while Terminal 5 is reserved for charter flights.
The facility has undergone major renovation work in recent years, with the aim of making it more energy efficient and improving the passenger experience: a new LED lighting system has been introduced that reduces energy consumption and a rainwater collection system for reuse in toilets. First airport in the world to adopt facial recognition system for the control of departing passengers, it is always in step with the times.
