Radisson Hospitality AB, part of Radisson Hotel Group, has signed a deal to open the Radisson Blu Hotel, Rome Fiumicino International Airport. The fourth Radisson Blu to arrive in Italy, the new hotel will be part of a long-term plan to strengthen the brand's presence in the country.
 
The Radisson Blu will be adjacent to one of Southern Europe's busiest international airports.

"Rome Airport has transformed itself and recently took pole position in Europe in terms of customer service and experience," said Elie Younes, EVP and CDO, Radisson Hotel Group, in a statement. "Italy is now a key focus market for our organic growth and will soon see a wider range of Radisson Hotel Group properties arriving in key cities and destinations."
 
Due to open in second-quarter 2022, the hotel will be linked to the terminal and offer 289 rooms, an all-day restaurant, lobby bar, gym and a ballroom.
 
The Radisson Blu will have access to the airport's terminals and will be within reach of Rome city center via a short ride on the Leonardo Express. Guests also will have high-speed train access direct from Fiumicino to Florence, Bologna and Venice.
 
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Rome Fiumicino International Airport will be operated by Radisson Hospitality AB under an International sub-concession agreement with the Rome Fiumicino airport manager, Aeroporti di Roma SpA. The hotel will be designed and developed by Aeroporti di Roma in collaboration with the Civil Aeronautical National Authority for the formal and final approvals.
