ADR, the company that manages Rome’s two airports, along with the Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC), earlier this year completed a major one-year renovation project on the general aviation terminal at the “Eternal City's” Ciampino–G.B. Pastine International Airport. Home to six FBOs—Jetex, Universal Aviation, Sky Services, Signature Flight Support, Argos/Deer Jet and Aviapartner—the structure was given an approximately $3.37 million (€3 million) refit inside and out, featuring natural materials such as steel, wood, ceramic and glass, inspired by Italian and Roman themes.
On the inside, the ground floor layout called for the FBOs to be grouped around a large central passenger lounge and two shared meeting rooms, along with commercial space. The three larger FBO spaces incorporate their own private passenger lounges, and the second floor of the facility now housesfour crew snooze rooms. The refurbished facility is designed to incorporate energy-saving features, and authorities expect it to achieve U.S. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification.
