Help with Catania Airport VIP service

Hi,
i hear that Catania Airport is chaotic and difficult to depart from due to overcrowding and disorganization. I have a 10 am flight to Rome on a Monday next month and was looking into the possibility of buying a VIP service to help me get through the check in, security, and immigration processes.
Has any used this service? If so does it make a difference?
i appreciate any help you can provide.

Suggest you check with the concierge if you are staying in a hotel. A good concierge generally has this information available.
Good luck

You'll pass immigration at FCO and not CTA. Anyway, I've never heard of people being left behind at CTA; if you are there 2 hrs before take-off everything should be fine, no need for panic.

Does anybody know if you can walk to the departures straight from the arrivals (i am talking about intra-schengen), so as to skip security or is one of the old airport designs?
