Aeroporti di Roma (ADR) – a Corporate Partner of the FTE Digital, Innovation & Startup Hub – has launched ‘Airport in the City’, a new check-in and baggage delivery service at Termini Station in central Rome.

Travellers can check-in for their flight and drop off their baggage free of charge, then collect it directly at their destination. For the initial trial period the service is available for ITA Airways passengers departing from Fiumicino Airport on the same day.

Technical partner of the initiative is OACIS, an international player that provides off-airport check-in services at various airports all over the world.

“Our goal with ‘Airport in the City’ is to bring the services of Fiumicino Airport to the heart of Rome, a great novelty in Italy and in Europe with which we seek to improve the travel experience of the thousands of passengers who pass every day through ‘Leonardo da Vinci’, the first gateway to our country,” said Marco Troncone, CEO, Aeroporti di Roma. “This initiative is the result of the strong push for innovation, a central tenet of our strategy to increase the scope of services we offer our passengers, as is the launch of the FlyandvisitRome.com platform, which aims to further promote the opportunity to visit our country – and, above all, the capital – on an international level. In this sense, inaugurating an outpost at Termini Station, with the invaluable support of ITA Airways and OACIS, strengthens our presence in the city to play an increasingly leading role, in full synergy with the institutions and in anticipation of the important appointments of global relevance that await us, above all the Jubilee 2025.”

Antonino Turicchi, Chairman, ITA Airways, commented: “It is with great satisfaction that today we join Aeroporti di Roma in celebrating the inauguration of ‘Airport in the City’, a service that makes the travel experience even livelier and more comfortable. This project reflects the close collaboration between ITA Airways and Aeroporti di Roma, stressing the common commitment to innovation and sustainability in the transport sector. With Aeroporti di Roma, we share the vision of an intermodal future, where aircraft integrate with other means of transport to offer efficient and convenient travel solutions. We look forward to new challenges and opportunities with enthusiasm and we are ready to continue this fruitful collaboration for the benefit of our passengers and the entire country system.”
