New ITA Airways Hangar Lounge opens at Rome Fiumicino Airport
Rome, 19 April 2023 - Today, ITA Airways inaugurated the new Hangar Lounge at the Leonardo da Vinci Airport in Fiumicino, with an event attended by the CEO and General Director of the company, Fabio Lazzerini, the Chairman of ITA Airways Antonino Turicchi, members of the Italian and international press, and other illustrious guests, including Tourism Minister Daniela Santanchè, the Undersecretary of MAECI, Maria Tripodi, MEF Undersecretary Federico Freni, the President of the Transportation Commission at the Chamber of Deputies, Salvatore Deidda, the President of ENAC, Pierluigi Di Palma, and the extraordinary figure-skating champion, Carolina Kostner, to whom the new Airbus A320neo is dedicated.
The new ITA Airways Hangar Lounge, reserved for eligible passengers (business class passengers, Executive and Premium Volare members as well as Skyteam Elite Plus members), departing for domestic and international destinations in the Schengen area, offers a unique setting. Located beyond the security gates of Terminal 1 in boarding area A of the airport, in a particularly strategic position for ITA Airways passengers, it is ideal both for relaxing and for doing business.
To greet the customers at the entrance, all along the wall of the Lounge, there is a visual installation consisting of 72 blue ITA Airways cloches with videos of the destinations. A multi-visual “voyage” in which the customers will be projected directly into the destinations in the flagship carrier's network, so that their flight begins already in the Lounge.
In its focus on Italian excellence, special attention is reserved to food in the Hangar Lounge. A hot buffet is available in the central island at lunch and dinner times, as well as at cocktails hour, and a coffee shop supplies beverages at all hours, with a qualified barman at the client’s disposal to offer coffee from the collection of specialty coffee 1895 Coffee Designers by Lavazza, as well as a list of iconic cocktails created by Campari Group which they can enjoy from the comfort of their Poltrona Frau armchairs or the B&B Italia seating with its innovative, iconic design. For complete relaxation, it is possible to use the shower area, decorated with Bisazza mosaic, and offering a special kit of a towel and accessories.
At the same time, the Hangar Lounge is the ideal place for those who need to be connected at all times. An exclusive wi-fi network and a working area with isolated workstations equipped with USB outlets and charging stations will enable guests to work in undisturbed comfort. A VIP conference room, fully furnished by LEMA is also available for meetings in total privacy. For a complete experience, finally, all customers have guaranteed access to a vast digital newsstand with the latest news.
