Fiumicino also scoops award for world's most improved airport.
Rome's Leonardo da Vinci airport, better known as Fiumicino, has received awards for the World's Most Improved Airport and Airport Service Quality, by the world's two leading institutions for certifying the quality of airport services.
The award for world's most improved airport comes from Skytrax, the principal rating and assessment company in the international airport sector. The accolade is awarded annually to the airport which has carried out the biggest improvement in the quality of services offered to its passengers. The independent survey involves more than 550 airports throughout the world.
Fiumicino received the Airport Service Quality Award from the Airport Council International (ACI), an independent association which, through direct interviews with passengers, evaluates the quality of services provided by over 300 airports worldwide.
Fiumicino is celebrating its double win with Top Quality Day on 22 March, a day-long cultural programme with musicians from Rome's Accademia di S. Cecilia performing music in the airport's terminals based on the "victory" theme.
The CEO of Aeroporti di Roma, Ugo de Carolis, welcomed the global recognition but acknowleged: "There is still a lot of work to do because an airport as big and important as Fiumicino is improved only thanks to a daily commitment."
