Internet down at Rome's Fiumicino airport

International flights delayed due to burnt fiber-optic cables.

Terminal 3 at Rome's Fiumicino airport is experiencing significant delays with passenger check-in since early on Monday 18 July, due to a breakdown in internet services provided by Italian telecommunications company Fastweb.

The delays of up to three hours relate to a recent fire on the motorway between the airport and nearby suburb Magliana during which the airport's fiber-optic cable connection was burnt.

The airport has tripled its staff on duty to deal with the problem which Fastweb operatives are working to fix.
