A completely renewed 25,000-square-meter pier and innovative technologies to enrich passengers' experience: this is the new Boarding Area A at Fiumicino Airport’s Terminal 1, with a capacity of 6 million departing passengers each year to national and Schengen destinations.
Quality, sustainability and innovation are the watchwords of the new infrastructure, designed by adopting the most modern environmental protocols to improve energy performance and reduce consumption, while maximizing space and services dedicated to passengers. One of the great novelties is the possibility for passengers, by framing a QR code positioned on the lead walls of the boarding gates, to listen to a guide to the destination of arrival with curiosities and places not to be missed. The podcasts can be downloaded and taken even in flight and are the result of the collaboration between Aeroporti di Roma and Chora Media. In addition, a new baggage handling system was installed in the arrivals area, with 3 new baggage carousels for an additional capacity of an additional 3 million passengers a year.
Passengers are welcomed by the work “LEO” by Marco Lodola, an artist who, on the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, wanted to depict him with luminous LEDs in many different colours, as a tribute to his genius light.
