news - AEROPORTI DI ROMA
Fiumicino, 19 February 2019 – ADR has filed a complaint with the Public Prosecutor’s Office against persons unknown for arson and any other identifiable specific crimes, following the fire that took place this morning at Ciampino Airport. It has been discovered that the premises the fire originated from was managed by the external company Ecofast. The airport’s electrical system is intact, meaning that it cannot have been the cause of the fire, which was put out in under a minute thanks to perfectly functioning alarm systems that allowed fire-fighters to take immediate action. The airport operator is therefore the injured party in the event.
Aeroporti di Roma, an Atlantia Group company, manages and develops the Fiumicino and Ciampino airports in Rome and performs other activities related and complementary to airport management. Fiumicino has two passenger terminals. It is dedicated to business and leisure clients on national, international and intercontinental routes. Ciampino is mainly used by low-cost airlines, by express couriers and for General Aviation operations. In 2018, the ADR airport system registered 48.8 million passengers, with over 230 destinations across the world accessible from Rome thanks to around 100 airlines operating in the two airports. According to Skytrax, in 2017 Fiumicino was the world’s number one airport for improvements and developments to its services. This award adds to the award granted to the airport by the Airports Council International World as the most appreciated airport in Europe amongst hubs with more than 40 million passengers, and to the “Best Airport Award” 2018 given to the Rome airport during the annual assembly of Airports Council International Europe.
