Rome's Fiumicino wins Best Airport award for seventh year in a row

Ciampino airport also receives recognition.

Rome's Fiumicino airport, known officially as Leonardo da Vinci, has been rated Best Airport in Europe with more than 40 million passengers for the seventh year in a row.

The Airport Service Quality (ASQ) recognition is awarded by Airports Council International (ACI), the international association that interviews passengers to measure perceived quality in more than 400 airports all over the world.

Fiumicino was also awarded for all ASQ categories: Airport with the Most Dedicated Staff in Europe, Easiest Airport Journey in Europe, Most Enjoyable Airport in Europe, Cleanest Airport in Europe.

Only nine airports have achieved levels of excellence in all of the ASQ categories, but these are airports with fewer than 15 million passengers a year.

Fiumicino is the only airport with more than 40 million passengers per year globally to have achieved this result.

The recognition for Fiumicino - the latest in a string of awards for the Italian hub - comes as Rome's other airport, Ciampino, was recognised for the first time by the ACI as the best airport in the category from 5 to 15 million passengers.

"For the first time Fiumicino and Ciampino airports are rewarded together at an international level for the quality and services offered to passengers", Marco Troncone, CEO of Rome's airport management company Aeroporti di Roma (AdR) said on Monday, hailing it as a "historic day".
