  • Joining two separate Alitalia tickets
    Nov 4, 2016
    I was originally flying Rome to Geneva at 09:55am but my plans changed and I bought a separate ticket from Venice to Rome arriving at 08:45. Both are on Alitalia arriving/departing at Terminal 1. The airline sells this as one through fare but the call centre told me I couldn't join the bookings together even though they are on the same carrier.... Still doesn't sound right. Surely they can join the ticket numbers together ?


    Just show your second alitalia confirmation to the agent in Venice and they should be able to take care of you.


  • Connecting flight same airline

    I am flying AGP to FCO 1hr 55 mins later fly FCO to FCU all with RyanAir. do I need to go through passport control and then come back through security to departures or can I just go straight into departure lounge hand luggage only?


    There's no such airport as "FCU". Where are you going from Rome on Ryanair? What airline are you flying from Malaga?


  • Customs

    We are arriving FCO on American Airlines from Charlotte on Saturday at 9:40 a.m. Approximately how long does it take to get bags and go through customs. Would like to be at Vatican by Noon, stopping by hotel to drop off bags first. Is that possible?


    It's possible, I think you'd be there at least by 1. Depends on where your hotel is and how you plan on getting around.


    Our hotel is near Piazza Navona and we will either take a taxi to the hotel from the airport or the reserve the hotel shuttle to pick us up.

  • Meeting Place in Terminal 3
    Jun 8, 2016
    We will be arriving in Terminal 3 about an hour before another couple also will arrive in the same Terminal. Is there some fairly comfortable place in the Terminal for us to wait for the other couple to meet us so that we can depart the Terminal together?


  • What time does T5 open?
    May 25, 2016
    During the winter I know T5 doesn't open until 7:00 AM. Does it open any earlier now that the summer season has begun?


    If there are earlier departures, then yes, it does. It probably opens no later than 3 hours before the first departure.


  • Connecting flight
    May 25, 2016
    I will be arriving from Athens with Aegean on Terminal 1 and then connecting to Barcelona with Alitalia on Terminal 3. Since this is a connecting flight between Schengen area, do I have to go through a passport control or only security check ?


    You have your terminals reversed. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Flying out from T5
    Apr 26, 2016
    Can you go directly into T5 for security,customs,etc.. and take your flight or you have to enter via another terminal ??? I fly with Air Transat to YUL


    Yes, the only way to access T5 is from the curbfront from a shuttle or car/taxi


    In T5, is there a Air Transat counter to get your boarding pass ? thanks again


    Yes, of course.


  • Time between flights
    Feb 9, 2016
    Arrival at FCO at 18:45 from Lisbon in Terminal 3 and departure to Beijing at 20:55 in Terminal 3. Could you confirm if 2 hours gap is enough for all procedures to take Beijing flight? Luggage is expected to be checked in Lisbon to final destination.


    Yes, if your bags are tagged through that should be enough time.


    In the case the bags are not tagged to final destination? Is it short?


    Everything would have to go perfectly if you had to claim and then re-check your bags to make it in time.


    Understood. Thanks for the help!
