Aeroporti di Roma inaugurates the new "A" boarding space with over 100 destinations for 6 million passengers who can now board, enjoying every comfort, on flights destined to Schengen and domestic areas.
The new terminal covers an area of 37,000 square meters and includes 23 new gates, 13 of which are equipped with boarding piers to significantly reduce the use of buses on the runway and the fuel used. In addition, all gates feature new "self-boarding" technology to perform the boarding procedures.
A state-of-the-art photovoltaic system with monocrystalline silicon panels powers the infrastructure. Natural light illuminates the spaces with 11,000 square meters of large windows and skylights.
Artificial lighting, completely energy-efficient, was realized with innovative LED technologies to recreate a real "starry sky" effect on the ceiling vaults.
And that's not all. The new 6,000-square-meter shopping arcade features 21 outlets, dedicated retail, and food & beverage spaces of excellence that have made Fiumicino Airport one of the world's most popular with passengers for five years running, as certified by Airport Council International.
At the mezzanine of Terminal 1 is a food area with a "market" format where to choose the best ingredients for exprerss dishes.
Entirely Made in Italy, Terminal A is an extraordinary and futuristic work for which the certification according to the International "Leed" protocol - (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) level Gold for the design, construction, and management of sustainable buildings is underway.
The terminal consists of two large structures connected by a body along which seven original masterpieces from the Ostia Archaeological Park are displayed. Sculptures and paintings from the Roman period give life to a prestigious exhibition entitled Men and Gods in Ancient Ostia. Also on display is Deti, the work by artist Marco Lodola inspired by the Cyrillic word for "children,": an homage to Picasso's famous dove and whose colors recall those of the flag of peace.
