Operated by Aeroporti di Roma SpA, Rome Ciampino Airport serves the Rome metropolitan area in Italy. Ciampino is one of the oldest airports in Europe still in operation, and until the construction of the larger, busier and more distant Leonardo da Vinci Airport in Fiumicino, Ciampino was the major international gateway to Rome. The airport was located 12km from central Rome, hosting mainly low-cost airlines such as easyJet, Wizz Air and Ryanair.

As Rome's Fiumicino burns, fashion capital Milan could benefit. Alitalia is left with a hub dilemma

18-Aug-2015 10:36 PM

On 07-May-2015 Rome’s Fiumicino-Leonardo da Vinci Airport, the principal airport for the Italian capital and home base of Alitalia, had to be closed down following a serious fire in Terminal 3, which broke out in a coffee shop. Hundreds of flights were cancelled, leading to chaos and confusion amongst passengers as entry was denied to all terminals.

As the crews of 15 fire engines fought to bring it under control the inferno destroyed several passport control cabins and the main commercial zone, including a large area of Duty Free shops. Fortunately there were no direct casualties but shortly after the fire was finally extinguished concerns began to be raised about health and safety issues. Those concerns continue despite action taken by the management of Aeroporti di Roma (AdR) and the Civil Aviation Authority, ENAC, initially to scale down operations to 60% of overall capacity.

Indeed, the fire managed to open a can of worms concerning the overall state of the Fiumicino infrastructure, its suitability to handle large numbers of passengers now and in the future, and whether or not it should even serve as the nation’s primary, showpiece, air gateway, despite a massive planned expansion programme.

Vueling, Ryanair, easyJet square up and all surround Alitalia in Rome: the gladiators are back!

31-Jan-2014 8:00 PM

Rome Fiumicino, the larger of the two airports serving the Italian capital, is emerging as a key battleground for European LCCs, in addition to being the last stronghold of struggling Alitalia. Ryanair and Vueling will increase their competition in the Italian domestic market, while easyJet and Vueling will encounter each other more in international markets from Rome. All three will pose a growing threat to Alitalia.

On 24-Jan-2014, easyJet announced the launch of five further international routes from Fiumicino this summer, after launching routes to Prague and Nantes in Dec-2013. Its expansion plans will see its capacity in Rome Fiumicino grow by one third in 2014. This follows the establishment at Fiumicino of a Ryanair base in late 2013 and expansion plans announced by Vueling at the airport.

Is there room for all the LCCs? – Norwegian Air Shuttle, Monarch, Wizz Air, Pegasus, NIKI and Germanwings are also present at Fiumicino. Will Alitalia be able to withstand the ever growing competitive pressure? Recalling Roman gladiatorial combat of ancient times, this could be a fight to the death.

Italian airports shrug off national debt concerns

24-Nov-2011 3:14 PM

With Italy becoming the latest, and largest, country to be beset by national debt issues (though Spain and even France are hovering in the wings) and a rising cost of borrowing, one might expect its airports to be losing both traffic and money. In fact that is not the case by any means and the city of Milan has decided to press ahead with its sale of a stake in airport operator SEA.

A ‘technocrat’, the academic Mario Monti, was sworn in as Prime Minister on 16-Nov-2011 following the resignation of Silvio Berlusconi, unveiling a similarly ‘technocratic’ cabinet on the same day and appointing himself Minister of Economy and Finance. The government is expected to stay in power until the next round of elections, due in 2013, and will determine the macroeconomic policies that will influence the performance of both publicly and privately owned Italian airports alike.

European airports enjoy solid recovery in 2010 – Italy performs well

9-Feb-2011 3:59 PM

European airports had a reasonably positive year in 2010, generating a 4.2% increase in passenger throughput, despite bouts of extreme weather, labour unrest, passenger taxation in some markets and lingering economic problems in many parts of the continent. Freight traffic recovered by 18.7% last year (off depressed levels in 2009), while aircraft movements were flat (dropping 0.2%).

SEA IPO by end 2011, but are the signs better this time?

14-Dec-2010 10:53 AM

Milan’s SEA SpA plans to launch an IPO on the Italian stock exchange by the end of 2011 according to Chairman Giuseppe Bonomi. The airport operator will make a final decision on the offering once main owner, the City of Milan, approves its annual accounts.

Airports struggle with life after Ryanair

11-Nov-2010 3:41 PM

Ryanair has been cancelling or suspending services at a wide range of airports across Europe, including in countries where it is growing. Is there any discernible strategy here or is it no more than coincidence, as a result of too many disagreements with airports? What future prospects are there for smaller airports when Ryanair decides to quit?
