Online pre-acceptance test Covid 19 for Covid-Tested flights

The online pre-acceptance system is in operation for undergoing a swab at Fiumicino airport (excluding the Drive-In Centre managed by the Lazio Region at the Long-Stay car park), available for all passengers - departing on "Covid-tested” on the Rome Fiumicino - Milan Linate route and those departing on “Covid-tested” flights to United States airports (New York, Atlanta).
You can fill out the online form through the link https://www.adr.it/form-preaccording accessible via smartphone, tablet or PC, or via QR code:


 

 

 

 

 

 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with an identification number that must be communicated to the staff on site.

It is mandatory for underage passengers to fill in the form on paper with a signature affixed by the parent/guardian (departing passengers - arriving passengers).

However, the option remains active for all passengers who have not had the opportunity to fill out the online form, to do it in paper form at the entrance to the Covid-19 test area.

 

New “Covid-Tested” flight procedure with USA with no quarantine obligation upon arrival in Italy

As of 8 December, all passengers travelling on Alitalia with New York must show a certificate proving a negative Covid-19 test, carried out within 48 hours before the flight, or must undergo an antigen test directly at the airport before boarding. Those departing from the United States, upon arrival at Fiumicino, will be asked to undergo a new antigen test; a double check that will exempt passengers from mandatory quarantine when entering Italy.
As of 19 December, the same travel procedures will also be launched for flights operated by Delta Air Lines with Atlanta.
The new travel protocol, also referred to by Prime Ministerial Decree dated 3 December, is governed by order of the Minister of Health dated 23 November 2020, issued in agreement with the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. The government provision shall be in force, unless extended, until 15 February 2021. The restrictions on entry into the United States provided for by the provisions of the American administration and the essential travel reasons set out by the authorities for entry into Italy remain valid.

 

New procedure for 2 Alitalia Rome-Milan flights

As of 16 September, a new, even safer way to fly will commence on two flights to Milan Linate, operated by Alitalia (AZ 2038 at 13:30 and AZ 2092 at 17:30), only with passengers on board who have undergone a preventive screening with a negative result for Covid-19 (rapid antigen test or PCR molecular test).

For those who already have a certificate certifying negativity to one of these test, carried out within 72 hours before the flight, there is no change to the boarding procedure, which provides for the usual routes. Before boarding, a Ministry of Maritime, Air and Boarder Health (USMAF) doctor will check the validity of the certificate already held by passengers.

Passengers without a negativity certificate can undergo the rapid antigen test directly at the airport at the Covid-19 test area, at Terminal 3 arrivals, via a lane dedicated to these two Alitalia flights. Here, they will hand over the duly completed “Certification of Home Self-Isolation and Health Surveillance in the Event of a Positive Outcome” form to the registration operator. This form can be downloaded here. For passengers who do not have the form already completed, stations are available to fill it in. Once registration has been completed, the swab can be carried out.

The result of the swab will be read and communicated by the doctor after 30 minutes by calling the identification numbers of passengers who, whilst waiting for their result, are unable to leave the test area.

Passengers who, instead, want to undergo the rapid antigen test before the day of departure (however, in any case, within 72 hours of take-off) can go to the drive-in centre at the airport’s long stay carpark, which can be easily reached from the A91 Rome-Fiumicino motorway, by following the dedicated road signs. Access to the facility will be guaranteed by showing the flight booking.

If the report is NEGATIVE, passengers will receive a certificate of negativity and can proceed to board.

If the report is POSITIVE, passengers will need to follow the health protocols that will be communicated to them by the staff in charge.

 

 

Provisions and information for passengers

Measures are in accordance with the provisions of the Council Presidency on the coronavirus infection.

 

We would like to inform our passengers that the Lazio Region drive-through for rapid Covid-19 antigen swab, is located in the Long-Stay car park, which can be reached by a free shuttle bus service.  

Passengers not residing in the Lazio Region with flights to countries mandatorily requiring a pre-departure Covid-19 swab test, with a negative result.

 

• If requested and if they are unable to obtain a prescription from their doctor, passengers not residing in the Lazio Region with a flight ticket can go to ADR's Emergency department at Fiumicino airport – located near Terminal 3 Arrivals– in order to be issued with a medical prescription on blank paper (no book-entry) for a molecular (PCR) test and will be directed to the authorised facility to undergo the test for a fee.

• Passengers are advised to follow the procedure described above as far in advance as possible and, in any case, by the deadlines permitted by the provisions of the foreign countries of destination.

• For further information, passengers can contact ADR's Emergency department operations room (tel. 06.6595.3133/3134)

 

 

With reference to COVID-19 rapid antigen test, passengers not residing in the Lazio Region can contact the private facilities accredited by the Lazio Region.

According to the new COVID-19 containment measures provided for by the provisions of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, it is mandatory, throughout Italy, to always carry respiratory protective devices with you and to use then in enclosed places other than in private homes, including on public transport and in all outdoor places, except in cases in which the condition of isolation from non-cohabitants is continuously guaranteed.

N.B. Children under the age of six, people with pathologies or forms of disability that are not compatible with the continuous wearing of a mask and those who interact with the aforementioned people are not subject to this obligation.

The technical regulations on the aviation sector (APPENDIX 15 OF PRIME MINISTERIAL DECREE DATED 13/10/2020) require passengers to wear a surgical mask on plane, which must be replaced every 4 hours in the event that an exception to the 1-metre social distancing measure is permitted. The wearing of surgical masks on board is to be understood as a minimum requirement of the protective device. Passengers who do not have one can collect one from security checks.
