ADR, "Leonardo da Vinci" confirmed best airport in Europe
This is the 4th time in the last 5 years that ADR has ranked first among European airports, following the evaluation of a jury of experts from the Travel industry in Europe. This result is in addition to the recognition of "Leonardo da Vinci" which for 5 consecutive years has been at the top of the European ranking on service quality expressed directly by passengers.
The jury of the ACI EUROPE Best Airport Awards 2022 consisted of influential representatives from the European Commission, EUROCONTROL, SESAR Joint Undertaking, International Transport Forum, and ECAC. The judges evaluated not only how airports have responded to the pandemic crisis, but also how they are evolving regarding the airport sector's sustainability goals of decarbonization. What made it possible for Leonardo da Vinci to win was precisely Aeroporti di Roma's excellent track record in technological innovation, with its strategy geared toward an increasingly cutting-edge future, leveraging digitization and open innovation to offer passengers even more safety and comfort while traveling.
In the area of sustainability, Fiumicino's goal of becoming Net Zero in 2030 was recognized, 20 years ahead of what has been set at the European airport sector level, in intermodality with the development of integrated train+airplane products, and in the diffusion of SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel), the biofuel capable of reducing CO2 emissions by 60-90%.
