The passenger terminal for scheduled flights at Ciampino, where low-cost airlines like Ryanair operate out of, will be closed from Saturday 14 March
From Tuesday 17 March, Terminal 1 will be temporarily closed at Fiumicino airport. All check-in operations, security checks and baggage reclaim will be carried out at Terminal 3 which remains operational.
“The decision has become necessary due to the multiple flight cancellations to and from Italy announced by many airlines that normally operate at both Rome airports,” said airport authority Aeroporti di Roma.
The statement continued: “However, General Aviation activities, State Authority and cargo aviation activities will remain unchanged. The runways at both airports will remain fully accessible and will not undergo operational changes.
“The passenger terminals at Fiumicino and Ciampino airports will resume normal operations as soon as the current state of emergency is over.”
