Rome airport system


Rome Airports, a company in the Mundys Group, manages Rome Fiumicino and Ciampino airports and carries out other additional activities related to airport management. Fiumicino has two passenger terminals and is dedicated to business and leisure customers on domestic, international and intercontinental routes; Ciampino is mainly used by low-cost airlines, express-couriers and General Aviation activities. 

In 2019 ADR recorded, as an airport system, 49.4 million passengers with over 240 destinations worldwide reachable from Rome, thanks to approximately 100 airlines operating at the two airports (In 2020, following the effects caused by Covid–19 on world air transport, the Roman airport system recorded 11.4 million passengers).




The “Leonardo da Vinci” Airport HUB is 32 km southwest of Rome. It is served by an excellent network of road and rail links, which make it accessible from the city centre in just 25 minutes. The airport is used primarily by airlines operating scheduled national, international and intercontinental flights.

The development of “Leonardo da Vinci” in recent years, driven in particular by the international flights component, led the airport to be used by 44 million passengers in 2019. Almost 100 airlines chose to fly from this airport in 2019, serving more than 210 destinations throughout the world.

The Rome Fiumicino HUB, through the extensive network of domestic and international destinations, is capable of ensuring considerable intercontinental feeder traffic for long-haul flights.
“Leonardo da Vinci” offers facilities and services in line with international standards; investments made by ADR in recent years have enabled Fiumicino to currently offer:

  • 2 interconnected passenger terminals (T1 and T3): 426,960 square metres
  • New bording area A (gate 61-84) 
  • 330 check-in desks
  • 73 boarding gates

Giovan Battista Pastine Airport is situated only 15 km southeast of Rome. It is mainly used by low cost airlines, by express-couriers and for general aviation.

In the last 10 years the low-cost market has grown and developed very quickly throughout Europe. In Italy, Ciampino has certainly been one of the airports that has best managed to capture this new type of traffic, encouraging a strong growth in tourist traffic in Rome and the Lazio region.

In 2019 Ciampino Airport welcomed 5,9 milion passengers, with almost 60 destinations.
