International Airport Review
Boarding Area A of Leonardo da Vinci International Airport was opened less than a year ago when the airport announced an exciting reopening of their new boarding area of Terminal 1. The combined area will have a capacity of six million departing passengers and connect users to national and Schengen destinations.
It is a state-of-the-art infrastructure, equipped with 22 gates, more than half of which are equipped with boarding piers. In line with the investments made by ADR, the focus is also on quality, sustainability and innovation for this project.
Specifically, the interventions carried out concerned all the structural and plant components, for a design aimed at maximising the spaces dedicated to passengers and facilitating their orientation.
In the new boarding area, with a total area of almost 25,000 m2, there are 12 new loading bridges for direct boarding onto the aircraft, 44 self-boarding gates, as well as digital columns integrated into the structures. In addition, a new baggage handling system was installed in the arrivals area, with three new baggage carousels for an additional capacity of an additional three million passengers a year.
