  • 1 hr 15 min layover

    Hello! Is 1 hour and 15 minutes enough time for a layover at the FCO - Rome airport? We are booking a trip to Athens and this layover is included in our flight on the way over there. We are traveling in from the US. We will not have any bags to deal with as they will be meeting us in our final destination, Athens. Any advice would help as I would really hate to miss our connecting flight to Athens. Thank you all!!!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Flying Alitalia from Soifa to Chicago can we make a 1 hour layover at FCO?

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi, I will be arriving from Heathrow at 8.25pm, with Alitalia, and transferring to Abu Dhabi, scheduled to leave at 10.00, also Alitalia. Is 1.5 hrs sufficient? (my inner granny gets a bit stressed) Thank you!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

    Thank you so much! My inner granny is grateful to the moon and back! (via Rome)

     

  • Palermo to Rome to JFK Connections

    Hello, Flying from Palermo to to FCO on Alitalia. Is a 1:05 connection enough to switch flights (to another Alitalia flight) in route to JFK? These would be on separate tickets

     

    This is just enough time, but if you have checked bags you would need to get the Alitalia agent in Palermo to check your bags through to JFK in order to make it.

    Hi. I'm a Malaysian and will be flying from Casablanca, Morocco to Kuala Lumpur (via FCO). I plan to leave the airport to visit Colosseum and return back to the airport on the same day during my layover (12 hours+ transit duration). Is it possible?

     

    Yes, Malaysian citizens are allowed to enter the Schengen Area without a visa.

    I will fly from Moscow to Madrid through Rome by Alitalia. I will have 1 hour 25 minutes layover time. Will it be enough for me and my checked in through luggage to fly? Since I am going to change terminal, should I pass the immigration again? Can someone please tell me the distance between Terminal?

     

  • 4 hrs layover and changing terminals. Is a visa still needed?

    i just booked my cousins ticket from India to aboo dabby to Rome to JFK ( final destination). She has a green card ( US ) and Indian passport. There's far too less time now ( leaving tomorrow ) to get a schenzen visa. She'd be arriving I think in terminal 1 and leaving of terminal 5. With a green card and a onward ticket to JFK , does she still need a Schenzen visa ? is she going to have difficulties . For those 4 hrs , she'll be @ the airport but she has to change terminals ( T1 or T3 to T 5 ) . Abs no interest in leaving outside.

    We arrive from US via Delta 7am, Depart to Athens via Alitalia 2:30p. With checked bags. Suggestions on what we can do in that time? Will we have to claim bags? Customs if we leave the airport? What if we go to airport Hilton? Thank you!

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation you won't have to do anything with your bags. Yes, once you go through passport control you can go whereever you want.

     

  • Is five hours enough

    Flying into FCO. I will have five and a half hour layover. Is that enough time to get a taxi and take a "taxi tour" of nearby sites? Maybe go see the Vatican?

     

  • 1 hour layover arrive from BDS and depart for ATL booked on Delta

    1 hour layover arrive from BDS at 8 am and depart for ATL 9 am booked on Delta with one checked bag on a Saturday morning - is this enough time to make the connection?

     

    1hr is not enough time. You will probably have to switch terminals by using the shuttle bus. I would go for 2hr at least or 2hr 30min.

     

  • Change from Air Berlin to RyanAir

    Am arriving from the US on Air Berlin into FCO and have 2 1/2 hours to get on a RyanAir flight to Malta. I will have to pick up my luggage and then check it with Ryan Air. I wonder how much time it takes to go through customs and security.

     

    Air Berlin does not fly from the US to Berlin. Where are you flying from?

     

    Sorry I mean Air Berlin does not fly from the US to Rome.

     

  • changing planes from terminal 5 to terminal one at FCO

    My clients are changing planes from terminal 5 in Fuimicino from Air Transat to Alitalia Terminal one to Reggio...have two seperate tickets...their flight arrives at 11.40am and their Alitalia flight departs at 2.35pm...will they have enough time ?

     

    They will not arrive in Terminal 5 - that is a departure only terminal. They will arrive in Terminal 3. They should have enough time. They will have to claim their bags from Air Transat and take them to Alitalia in T1 to Re-check.
