A summer full of departures and arrivals for Fiumicino airport, which expands its offer with new routes, thanks to the arrival or return of several airlines with regular scheduled services: a further step on the road back to normalcy and a confirmation of the Roman airport’s role as a strategic hub for intercontinental connections.
From June, two weekly direct flights will link Leonardo da Vinci Airport with Bahrain International Airport in Manama. Gulf Air, the flag carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain that operates the flights, boasts one of the most extensive networks in the Middle East, and the direct flights to Rome are able to offer the best two-way connectivity to destinations in the Persian Gulf, the Indian subcontinent, and the Far East.
Tri-weekly cadence, on the other hand, have the direct flights from Rome to Singapore operated by Singapore Airlines, the first airline to restore non-stop connections to East Asia at Leonardo da Vinci since the onset of the pandemic. Starting 23 June, the Chongqing-Rome air route also returns to operation every Thursday thanks to Hainan Airlines: the flight is the first regular intercontinental international air route resumed in the southwestern Chinese city since 2019.
