Rome-Fiumicino International Airport, Masterplan & Campus Development
The masterplan offers a flexible and sustainable solution to the expansion of one of Europe’s busiest airports
Pascall+Watson’s long-standing historic relationship with Rome-Fiumicino Airport has resulted in the completion of numerous development studies across the site; schemes ranging from the refurbishment and upgrade of existing terminal buildings to a complete campus-wide strategic masterplan.
The masterplan explores the potential to develop land to the north of the existing infrastructure, increasing the airports’ capacity to 87 million passengers per year. The study concluded that a new runway and midfield terminal would dramatically improve both the airport’s flexibility for point-to-point traffic and its passenger transfer capabilities.
Following extensive benchmarking and detailed analysis, the optimal layout for the midfield terminal was determined to be an ‘H’ configuration comprising four piers; two dedicated to Schengen traffic, one dedicated to non-Schengen traffic and one fully flexible.
A ground transportation centre connects rail, bus, car park and hotel facilities to create a multi-modal transport hub.
The study incorporated a comprehensive environmental plan with many improvements and benefits proposed well beyond the airport boundary.
