Alitalia (3rd) (Rome) has issued this statement about airport operations at Rome’s Fiumicino Airport (FCO). Terminal 3 of Leonardo da Vinci Airport in Fiumicino was struck by a fire which upset airport operations. Here is the statement:
Due to the fact that Terminal 3 has been condemned for airport operations, Alitalia informs that the check-in operations for all domestic, international and intercontinental flights of the Company will be carried out at Terminal 1.
Alitalia has also set up two task forces, composed of about 100 people from operating and commercial areas, including managers, in order to simplify service and to give information to passengers departing or transiting at Rome Fiumicino airport.
Previously Alitalia restarted operations at yesterday at 2 pm (1400).
Today the airport issued this statement:
FIUMICINO TERMINAL 3 REOPENED
After yesterday’s fire, the Terminal is gradually being reopened by Aeroporti di Roma teams, each staffed with 300 technicians, cleaning and maintenance personnel who worked all through the night to restore operations at the Terminal 3 from early this morning.
All this has been possible because the event affected only the commercial area, beyond security check counters.
