The Plaza Premium Lounge at Rome Fiumicino has been awarded by SkyTrax, the leading international air transport rating agency, the prestigious “5-Star COVID-19 Lounge Safety Ratings” award, the highest security certification for COVID-19.
The Leonardo Da Vinci Terminal 3 lounge received the highest score for the excellent and consistent measures put in place to reduce the risks associated with the pandemic. SkyTrax's assessments considered the safety and hygiene protocols put in place by lounge operators and airlines to ensure that lounges meet the highest standards and offer advanced levels of safety for customers and staff.
This prestigious result is particularly significant because it is yet another confirmation of how the capital's airport is among the most recognised airports in the world in the fight against Covid-19. In fact, in 2020 Fiumicino obtained the maximum 5-star rating from Skytrax, after receiving Biosafety Trust Certification from Rina Service and Airport Health Accreditation (the first airport in the European Union to do so) from ACI.
‘’We are thrilled to be awarded with the highest 5-Star Covid-19 Airline Lounge Safety Rating. Safeguarding everyone’s health and wellbeing is of utmost importance to us. Air travelling may seem a little stressful these days, but thanks to our teams for their dedication and commitment to ensuring a hygienic and safe environment for our guests, we hope that travellers can achieve a comforting peace of mind during these unprecedented times. Our lounges strictly follow our company global safety and quality standards, and as travel demand recovers, we look forward to hosting more of our valued guests in our lounges,’’ shared Analia Marinoff, General Manager, Italy & Finland, Plaza Premium Group
We are particularly proud of the recognition received by Plaza Premium," said Federico Scriboni, Head of Aviation Business ADR, "because it is a positive and hopeful sign for the future. The pandemic hit all sectors hard, but air transport was especially hard hit. This is why we must always guarantee our passengers the highest level of safety and comfort. This award testifies to the virtuous path that, by combining safety and quality within the airport experience with timeliness and incisiveness, has made Fiumicino one of the most recognised airports in the world in the fight against Covid-19, in line with ADR's strategy, which is increasingly focused on service excellence, sustainability and innovation".
