Fiumicino, 20 February 2018 – A special welcome at Leonardo da Vinci airport for the Italian National Rugby team who take on France in Marseille on Friday. The match kicks off the third day of the Six Nations. Aeroporti di Roma airport operators welcomed and greeted the athletes, and organised a surprise greeting with the Tricolore flag and a rendition of “Fratelli d’Italia”, the country’s national anthem.
Passengers in the airport joined the unexpected flash mob, singing alongside airport staff and photographing the departing rugby players. To accommodate fans planning to follow the team to Marseille, official ADR airport parking brand Easy Parking is offering a special 30% discount until 24 February, valid for stays exceeding the 2 days need to go to and return from the match.
The management company has placed a number of cultural initiatives in play to entertain passengers during their time in the airport: concerts, ballets, and book presentations truly make it an airport of culture.
