Aeroporti di Roma celebrates the reopening of tourism with the United States  

Tuesday, 09 November 2021 11:35

The United States has reopened its borders, allowing free travel from the EU to the US without any particular restrictions, provided passengers are vaccinated and have a swab within three days of boarding. Aeroporti di Roma, operator of Rome’s two airports, together with the airlines that operate direct flights between the US and Rome’s international Fiumicino Airport, is celebrating this important moment for the resumption of Atlantic air traffic.

Tickets are already on sale for summer 2022

Currently there are up to four daily direct flights between Fiumicino and the US, with Delta Air Lines operating on New York JFK and Atlanta, United on Newark, and ITA Airways on New York JFK.  And more frequencies are slated from December. For summer 2022 additional routes operated by these carriers have been put on sale, and American Airlines flights are set to resume. The United States represents the main long-haul market to and from Rome Fiumicino and the 5th international market overall after Spain, France, the UK and Germany. In 2019, before the pandemic, almost 2.8 million passengers flew to/from Rome Fiumicino with direct connections on 13 US airports, a 7.5% growth over 2018.

“A first step towards restarting our economies”

"The reopening of US borders for vaccinated tourists and travelers from the European Union - declared Ivan Bassato, Aviation Operations Director Aeroporti di Roma - is a very positive and hopeful sign for the future. The pandemic has hit all sectors hard, especially air transport which is struggling to return to normal. After a year and a half during which air travel stalled at unprecedented levels, the US administration's decision is a real boost for the aviation sector and a first step towards restarting our economies.”
