Ciampino airport in Rome has been closed to allow the safe removal of three unexploded bombs dating from world war two, found during maintenance work on the aircraft parking areas.
Bomb disposal experts are currently at work and the airport's closure, ordered by the Italian Civil Aviation Authority, is expected to last until at least 18.00 on 7 February.
Flights scheduled to depart from Ciampino will be delayed while flights due to arrive in Ciampino will instead be diverted to Fiumicino, Rome's main international airport.
Aeroporti di Roma (AdR) recommends contacting airlines directly for detailed flight information. Further updates will be provided in real time on the AdR website as well as on its social media networks.
