Rome Fiumicino Airport unveils direct high-speed rail links to Nap

Plans to let passengers check in their bags at train stations before boarding their flight to Rome.

Rome Fiumicino Airport, officially known as Leonardo da Vinci, has three new direct high-speed connections to Naples and Florence as part of a major development to link rail and air travel for its passengers.

The new Frecciarossa services include two flights to and from Napoli Centrale and Napoli Afragola and one from S. Maria Novella in Florence, Rome airport management company Aeroporti di Roma (AdR) said in a statement. A declaration.

The Trenitalia connections, which entered into service on July 11, have been added to the existing Frecce services to and from Venice, Padua, Bologna, Florence and Rome, as well as the direct Leonardo Express between Fiumicino and Rome Termini, and the various regional connections on line FL1 Fiumicino Airport – Rome – Orte.

AdR also announced its intention to allow air passengers “in the near future” to carry out check-in operations – including their baggage – directly at stations connected to Fiumicino.

Trenitalia and AdR say they have studied train timetables to identify the best integration between high-speed trains and intercontinental flights passing through Italy’s largest airport, with the aim of consolidating Fiumicino’s role as a smart hub.

The multi-award-winning airport boasts that new direct high-speed rail links will allow passengers to leave Naples or Florence by train at dawn and be in New York by early afternoon.
