Traffic has grown so much that noise complaints are now forcing the Italian Ministry of Transport to look for a third airport for Rome (see ciampino airport map), which could take over some part of the excess traffic of Ciampino airport. Passenger traffic in 2008 was 4,788,931 with a decrease of 11.31% compared to 2007 due to economic crisis and EasyJet gradually moving routes to Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport.
