Phase 2: from today a new method of access at Fiumicino – Cronaca airport


From today the modalities of access to Rome Fiumicino airport change according to the new provisions of the Dpcm of 17 May 2020 for the containment of the contagion from Covid-19, to the EU health security protocol and to the ENAC guidelines . At Terminal 3, the only one currently operational – explains Adr -, only passengers with regular travel tickets and airport operators can enter from today. Access to accompanying persons is forbidden. The only exception is made for underage passengers and for passengers with reduced mobility.
News also regarding body temperature controls with the use of termoscanners (already operational since February 4, ed.) Which are now carried out by volunteer staff at the airport entrance and no longer at the boarding gates . The new method therefore requires that checks be carried out at entrance 5, at the departure floor of terminal 3, and at the mezzanine, also at terminal 3, for those arriving from multi-storey car parks and the railway station. At the arrivals of terminal 3, on the other hand, checks are carried out at door 4. Exit from the terminal is allowed from door 3, at the departures level, and from door 2, at the arrivals level. At each entrance there is a garrison of Adr Security.
It is then always mandatory to wear the protective mask inside the airport and keep the interpersonal distance of at least one meter. This is a measure that adds to all the other initiatives taken by Aeroporti di Roma to make the airport safe. Starting with the sanitization activity of the entire airport perimeter, both in the internal areas (check-in counters, metal detectors, storage containers, waiting sessions, handrails of escalators, toilets, trolleys for carrying suitcases, luggage ) and, as needed, in the external ones (roads, temporary parking areas, taxi stands). This activity, which, following random checks with swabs made in various areas of the airport, has so far made it possible to exclude the presence of any viruses.
Sanitizations are also carried out also on board the planes on which, in order to avoid gatherings, one also climbs through the finger (the corridor that leads directly to the plane, ed.). The obligation to wear the protection mask must also be respected inside the passenger cabin. The interpersonal distance between one seat and another is given at check-in with the delivery of the boarding pass. Households that can sit nearby are exceptions.
The spaces inside the airport were then remodeled to ensure the social distancing that is indicated by a new signage. Information on the service monitors has also been increased, information totems have been added and over 200 sanitizing gel dispensers have been installed.
“The constant collaboration underway between Adr, Civil Protection, Ministry of Health, ENAC and State Police – so far underlines the management company – has so far guaranteed the correct execution of the prevention procedures indicated by the competent institutional subjects, for the benefit of the safety and without generating inconvenience for passengers “.
