Rome’s Fiumicino and Ciampino airports are poised to set a new record in 2024, surpassing pre-pandemic levels. 

Remarkable end-of-year numbers

This optimistic forecast is baes on 2023 figures which saw the combined passenger traffic at Rome’s two airports reach 44.4 million passengers. Fiumicino, with 40.5 million passengers, scored a remarkable 38% increase over 2022, while Ciampino handled 3.9 million passengers. The positive momentum is expected to continue "with a further leap forward in 2024 compared to 2019.”. Fiumicino's success is thanks to non-European and European traffic, which posted growth rates of "+76% and +30%" respectively.
