  • Catania to JFK
    Jan 17, 2017

    Trying to figure out terminals, etc. My son will be travelling from Catania to Rome (Alitalia) connecting to JFK with KLM airlines. Is 2 hours enough time? It looks like they may both be on Terminal 1, but Alitalia also flies into terminal 3, so I didn't know if he had to change terminals. Please advise. (His trip over has a 5 hour layover in FCO, so that's not a problem.) Al.so, how early does he need to get to Catania airport before his flight. I'm not familiar with international travel. Thank you!

     

    If he is flying nonstop to JFK, that flight will also be on Alitalia. He will arrive in Terminal 1, go through Schengen Exit Passport control and walk to his departure gate in Terminal 3. He should try to get to the Catania airport 2 hours before his flight.

    transferring from Etihad 83 from Abu Dhabi arrives 1:10pm to make a connection to Alitalia 1395 to Genova leaves 2:20pm. Is there enough time to make the connection please?

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation that should be just enough time.

    Hi, we have AA flight into FCO from Dallas that lands at 7:10 am. We want to take an Alitalia (will not be on same ticket) leaving FCO for Lamezia Terme(SUF) at 9:25 am. We will have checked bags. Is this enough time? Thanks

     

    I personally wouldn't book that. I would want at least 3 hours.

    Hi. Flying ATH to JFK with 1:10 layover in FCO. One ticket reservation with Alitalia. Is layover time sufficient? Thank you

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You just have to go through Schengen Exit passport control and then to your departure gate.

    Flight from Tunis to Malta has a 1hr 50min connection in Rome. Tunis Air to Alitalia. What is the likelihood of making the connection?

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation you have a chance. If no, then it will be almost impossible.

  • Connection time okay, FCO to Dubrovnik?

    Arriving FCO from ATL on Delta, terminal 5, 7:55; Vueling flight to Dubrovnik at 10:00 from terminal 3. Carry-on baggage only. Can I make this connection?

     

    You do not arrive in Terminal 5. No flights arrive in Terminal 5. You arrive in Terminal 3. With carry-ons this should be easy as all you have to do is go to your departure gate and/or the Vueling transfer desk.

    I will be flying with my family from Venice to Rome (with check in baggage) and then have a 1hour 35min layover in Rome before flying on to our final destination in Brazil. Both flights are with Alitalia. Is 1hour 35min layover sufficient time to make our connecting flight? Thank you!

     

    Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    4 of us arrive from Australia @ 7:55 with Singapore Airlines, and would like to catch the 9:45 Alitalia flight to Naples. Do we have sufficient time to achieve this connection?

     

    I don't think so - I would book a later flight to Naples.

    We are flying AC 892 YUL-FCO arriving 08:50, connecting to AZ 1755 FCO-CTA leaves 11:45. Separate tickets. Will this be enough time? Do we need to transfer from Terminal 3 to 1? Clear customs in 3 and wait at Alitalia checkin line at terminal 1?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. Yes, you will arrive, go through passport control, and claim your bags in Terminal 3, then take your bags to Terminal 1, re-check them with Alitalia, and go through security.

    From cairo to Moscow on alitalia. I land in rome terminal 3 and departure from terminal 1. Will i manage in an hour and 20 minutes to reach terminal 1 for my next flight? Also as it's a transit I don't need a shenghen visa am i right?

     

    Yes, that should be just enough time. Whether or not you need a visa depends on your citizenship.

     

    Well I'm Egyptian and rome is only a transit i have. So does this require a visa?

     

    Egyptians can do a sterile transfer within the Schengen Area without a transit visa.

    Hi there. US citizen flying from JFK to FCO. Is 1.5 hours enough time to transfer from a British Airways flight to a Ryanair flight to Malta? We'll have to go through customs, get our luggage then check in to the Ryanair flight. If not, how much time do you think we'll need? Thank you.

     

    No, I do not think that's enough time. I'd want 3 hours.

    I will be traveling to FCO on Alitalia and connecting to a flight to FLR - how long shold we plan for the connection and will we need to clear security again?

     

    You won't have to go through security if both flights are on the same Alitalia reservation. You just go through passport control and to your departure gate. I would want 2 hours.

    I am using an Eihad airways flying bound to Algiers transiting by FCO. As i am an Algerian citizen, do i need a transit visa?

     

    Algerians do not need an airport transit visa for sterile airside transits of the Schengen Area.
