All About the Expansion at Fiumicino Airport

Fiumicino airport in Rome is expanding and, by the end of 2016, there will be a brand new wing at the airport, which will be dedicated to flights between Italy and non-Schengen countries.

The new wing at Fiumicino is a staggering 90,000 square metres, with 14 new gates and two new boarding areas, and it is expected to be able to handle 6 million passengers every year.

In short, gates that used to start with the letters G or H will now start with the letter E. In addition, there will be a new boarding area for people flying to non-Schengen countries, which is expected to be completed by the end of December.

During the early days of the new wing, an informative video will be broadcasted on the information screens located at each check-in counter at Fiumicino, as well as at the boarding gate, at security and on special information monitors.

This expansion is part of an on-going development plan at Fiumicino, which is expected to continue until 2044, creating not only new terminals, but also two new runways and a high-speed train service to Florence, Bologna, Venice, Milan and Naples.
