The international terminal at Rome’s main airport has no security for two hours every night, an Italian newspaper reported today.
The weekly L’Espresso said that between 1:00 am and 3:00 am (local time) each day, standard security measures were missing at Fiumicino Airport, which deals with around 33 million passengers a year.

Photos published in the newspaper showed one of its journalists passing through a metal detector as well as sitting in an office, behind a check-in desk and at a rental car counter.
« There are security flaws every night, » reporter Tommaso Cerno wrote.
« Metal detectors are switched off, access doors are unguarded, offices are left open.
« There is a window of at least two hours during which the secure area of international terminal T3 is accessible to absolutely anyone, in theory even someone with weapons or explosives.
« At night, the airport belongs to no one. There are no security staff, no alarms, no one to guard the place. »
L’Espresso said Cerno visited the airport shortly after 1:00 am on a Sunday at the end of January.
He tried again a few days later and found the same situation, with customs offices closed and police on break.
The newspaper said the first morning flight left at 5:40 am and normal security controls resumed around two hours earlier, but before then the terminal was an « amusement park. »
« You can sabotage, damage, steal, connect to the internal computer network, set the moving walkways going … then at 3:30 am, when Fiumicino starts to wake up, you can get back in your car and drive off, no problem, » the report said.

    Un grand bravo à l’aéroport de Rome ! D’un côté Berlusconi nous rebat les oreilles avec sa politique d’immigration en Méditerranée (reconduite aux frontières de tous individus suspects) et de l’autre la passoire romaine !
    Bravissimo !

    C’EST UN PROBLEME BIEN PLUS COMPLEXE QUI CONCERNE NON SEULEMENT LES AUTORIT2S ITALIENNES, IATA, ET SUREMENT LES AEROPORTS DES CAPITALES ET GRANDES AGGLOMERATIONS DE LA MEDITERRANEE (EUROPE ET PAYS ARABO-MUSULMANS) QUI DOIVENT PRENDRE DES MESURES CONCERTEES SUR CE SUJET.
    EN TOUT CAS, LA CIRCULATION DU FRET VA CERTAINEMENT ETRE IMPACT2EE, ON SE REND COMPTE QUE LA PRESSION AUX FRONTIERES PROVOQUE UN EFFET BOOMERANG INATTENDU.
