news - AEROPORTI DI ROMA
Following the testing phase of the last two days and in observance of instructions from the Ministry of Health, at Leonardo da Vinci airport, latest generation thermal scanners have been installed – and are now operational – to monitor the body temperature of passengers arriving in the airport.
The three reception areas for measurement have been set up in Terminals 1 and 3 (with two stations). In all, there are 11 dedicated lanes, all with thermal scanners: 3 in Terminal 1, 3 in Terminal 3 for Schengen flights and 5 at Terminal 3 international arrivals. A health worker is at each lane to support arriving travellers, using a tablet, in taking their body temperature, measured by the thermal scanners in just two seconds, without any impact on terminal operations procedures. The scanners are in addition to those already available in the health channel set up in 2016 by the airport management company.
Aeroporti di Roma wishes to thank the Special Commissioner, Angelo Borrelli, Civil Protection, the Ministry of Health, Enac and the State Police for their ongoing collaboration in swiftly carrying out the management plan indicated by the relevant institutional agents.
Aeroporti di Roma, an Atlantia Group Company, manages and develops the Fiumicino and Ciampino airports in Rome and carries out other activities related and complementary to airport management. Fiumicino operates through two passenger terminals. It is dedicated to business and leisure clients on national, international and intercontinental routes. Ciampino is primarily used by low-cost airlines, by express couriers, and for General Aviation operations. In 2019, the ADR airport system registered 49.4 million passengers, with over 240 destinations across the world that can be accessed from Rome thanks to around 100 airlines operating in the two airports. In 2019, the Airports Council International Europe awarded Leonardo da Vinci with the “Best Airport 2018”. For the second year in a row, Fiumicino has been confirmed as the top-ranked of 20 European airports with over 25 million passengers for its quality of service, technological innovation, and the efficiency of its infrastructure. This adds to the “Airport Service Quality” award granted to the Leonardo da Vinci airport in 2019, for the second year in a row, by the Airports Council International World as the most appreciated airport in Europe amongst hubs with more than 40 million passengers. ADR’s management skills have also been confirmed during 2019 by the awards received from Skytrax, the main international society for the rating and evaluation of the airport sector, which verified that Fiumicino achieved 4 Skytrax stars in 2017.
