The infrastructure

With international boarding area E, Aeroporti di Roma inaugurated one of the largest and most advanced flight infrastuctures and one of the largest Airport Shopping Centres in Europe, in the name of quality and excellence.

The area that receives international flights (Non-Schengen), with over 6 million passengers a year, is designed according to the most advanced “Made in Italy” engineering and architectural criteria.

The high-quality materials used that reproduce the effect of historic Roman materials, with a predilection for large spaces and a direct passage of natural light, aimed at enhancing the passenger experience - with a view to environmental integration – are the central features of the design.


Made in Italy Piazza

This is the area dedicated to passenger services and facilities. It houses prestigious luxury Made in Italy brands and international fashion brands that offers their top commercial lines and current trends.

To complete the offer there will also be outlets capable of meeting the needs of all passengers: from classic design souvenirs to services such as a health store or bookshop, where travel guides can also be purchased.

To satisfy travellers’ palate, the forebuilding also offers 10 new restaurant businesses, with a varied selection of food and wine for all tastes, from excellent regional and Mediterranean products to quality menus designed to meet the various needs, from Asian menus to gourmet burgers, of the thousands of passengers, from all corners of the world. The new building, connected to Terminal 3 via walkways, is built on three levels: the upper two dedicated to passenger services at the shopping centre and one at the boarding gates, amounting to a total surface area of 35,000 metres squared. The area is the place where passengers can spend time before boarding, with numerous services and shops, welcomed by the comfort of many seat where they can relax.
