Three new Frecciarossa routes to and from Fiumicino Airport, with an absolute novelty: the direct connection between the Rome airport and the Napoli Centrale and Napoli Afragola stations.
The new Trenitalia services started on Monday 11 July to enhance the integration between train and plane with direct High-Speed connections between Fiumicino airport and Southern Italy and the strengthening of current connections with central Italy.
In line with the governmental and European strategy on the development and promotion of intermodality, the launch of the new connections is a tangible result of the agreement on sustainable mobility signed on 17 March by Luigi Ferraris, CEO FS Italiane and Marco Troncone, CEO of Aeroporti di Roma. An agreement that also aims to make passenger and baggage check-in available in the near future, in coordination with ENAC, directly at the departure railway station.
Specifically, Trenitalia’s offer to and from Fiumicino airport is enriched with three new Frecciarossa connections, two to and from Naples and one departing from Florence, adding to the Frecce to and from Venice. Padua, Bologna, Florence and Rome, to the direct Leonardo Express routes between Fiumicino and Roma Termini and to the number of regional connections of the FL1 Fiumicino Airport - Rome - Orte line.
The connections and timetables have been created by Trenitalia and Aeroporti di Roma to identify the best integration between high-speed trains and intercontinental flights arriving and departing from the first Italian airport in favour of greater integration between train and plane and with the aim to consolidate the role of smart hub of Leonardo da Vinci airport. With these connections, passengers can be in New York in the early afternoon, leaving early in the morning from Naples or Florence, guaranteeing a better union between collective and shared means of transport, an objective at the centre of the activities of the Passenger Hub of the FS Group which brings together all of the Group’s transport companies.
The working table between FS Italiane and Aeroporti di Roma will continue and will be enriched by commercial agreements with the airlines operating in Fiumicino to integrate the reciprocal sales and distribution systems with the possibility of carrying out passenger and baggage check-in operations directly. at the main railway stations connected with Leonardo da Vinci airport.
