news - AEROPORTI DI ROMA
Aeroporti di Roma has regretfully informed Assaeroporti of its decision to leave the Association, having already noted, for months, the current impossibility to continue a productive dialogue on central issues, such as sustainability, intermodality and digital innovation.
This step back does not mean a complete break from the association, especially given that ADR shall remain firmly associated with Confindustria through Unindustria. However, it is a necessary step to unlock, with different presuppositions and necessarily based on mutual recognition and transparency, a dialogue that now appeared paralysed and insufficiently open and constructive in relation to the current situation, which does not allow for hesitation nor unproductive distractions.
Therefore, notwithstanding the commitment to fuel, with the utmost determination, the process of transformation of the sector, ADR hopes to be able to cultivate a sincere and independent line of comparison with the Association and all associates, with the certainty that the sector shall still be able to be compact on key priorities during this time of severe crisis. In this perspective, Aeroporti di Roma shall continue to provide its contribution, thanks to its credibility, planning capacity and responsibility as a system subject, to design a future in which airport infrastructures take on an increasingly strategic and decisive role in the process of changing Italy as outlined by the Government, in terms of sustainability, quality, innovation and intermodality.
Aeroporti di Roma, an Atlantia Group company, manages and develops the airports of Rome Fiumicino and Ciampino and carries out other activities associated with and supplementary 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, as an airport system, recorded 49.4 million passengers with over 240 destinations worldwide that can be reached from Rome, thanks to the approximately 100 airlines operating at the two airports (In 2020, following the effects caused by Covid-19 on air transport, Fiumicino airport recorded just 9.8 million passengers, whilst Ciampino airport closed the year with 1.6 million passengers). In 2020, Airports Council International Europe awarded Leonardo da Vinci the “Best Airport Award 2020”. For the third consecutive year, Leonardo da Vinci confirmed its first place out of all European hubs with over 40 million passengers. The award adds to the recognition of Airports Council International World which, in 2020, for the third consecutive year, awarded Leonardo da Vinci the “Airport Service Quality 2019” award as the most popular airport in Europe out of all hubs with more than 40 million passengers. ADR’s management capacity is also confirmed by the awards received in 2019 from Skytrax, the main international rating and assessment company in the airport sector, which confirmed the 4 Skytrax stars obtained by Fiumicino in 2017.
