  • CX and A3 separate tickets
    Mar 28, 2017
    Hi my sister is Indonesian and will arrive in Rome by CX at 7:25am ( assuming no delay). She then has connecting flight at 11Am by Aegean on a separate reservation. Do you think there's enough time for her to go through customs, get the luggage and check back in? I think both airlines are in the same terminal but just wondering if that duration was a bit too close. How far is it between the arrival and departure hall? Thank you in advance for your help.


    That should be enough time.

    I am flying from Dubrovnik, Croatia through FCO and then to Charlotte NC in the United States. It's one ticket but arrives in FCO at 10:30 in Terminal 3 on Croatia Airlines and then departs to Charlote NC at 11:55 from terminal 3 as well on American Airlines. Is that enough time and what is the process with passport control?


    If Croatia Airlines is able to issue your AA boarding pass then you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, no passport control as Croatia is not part of the Schengen Area.


  • Non-Connecting Flights & Security

    US citizen arriving FCO on United direct flight from Dulles on a Saturday morning at 8am, has separate ticket on Alitalia flight to Venice at 10:10am with NO checked luggage to collect. United says flight will arrive at Terminal 3, and I believe flight to VCE departs from Terminal 1. After passport control, can one simply walk to Terminal 1 gate, or must we exit, then go through airport security line again?


    Yes, you can go directly to T1. Either check in for your Alitalia flight online or stop at the Alitalia transfer desk.

    If it's two separate reservations I recommend at least 3 hours.


  • LAX-FCO-Catania

    I am flying in from LAX at 6:50am and leave at 8:20 am for Catania. Can I clear passport and customs in Catania? Or is that not Possible. I booked the flight thru Alitalia. both ways.


    You must go through Schengen Entry passport control in Rome. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Venice to Atlanta through rome
    Mar 18, 2017
    I'm flying from venice to Atlanta through Rome. Same ticket. My reservation says I arrive in Terminal 1 and leave from Terminal 1. I have a 1 hour layover. Will I need to go through passport control if my flight is coming in from the same country? With 1 hour be enough if I have to go through passport control? Arrive in Rome around noon on a Monday. Thx!


    Your departure gate won't actually be in Terminal 1, it will be in Terminal 3. You will go through Schengen Exit passpor control as you go to your departure gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • arrival from air canada, flight with airmalta? enough time to connect

    I think you're crazy.


  • Venice-FCO -Atlanta
    Mar 18, 2017
    See below post--neglected to add departure o DL 65 at 12:20 PM for total connect time allowance of 2hrs 10 minutes if all on time


    That will be difficult with checked bags, but not totally impossible if everything goes perfectly.


    agree it's too tight and DL requires a check in 2 hrs before flight time. Won't work which is too bad Thx for the response


  • Athens -FCO-Atlanta (DL) connection time
    Mar 16, 2017

  • Time for connection Terminal 1 to Terminal 3
    Mar 16, 2017
    . I am due to land in Rome at 12:55 from Pisa (Terminal 1, Alitalia) and my international flight leaves Terminal 3 (Emirates, Terminal 3) at 3:25 pm. I only have carry on. Is that enough time? Where is passport control?


    Schengen Exit Passport Control is when you enter Terminal 3. You have enough time.


  • Arrive 7:25am, catching second flight at 10:30am. Not same ticket.
    Mar 15, 2017
    Hi there, I was wondering if this is doable? 2Hrs and 55 minutes to collect bags, then customs and check in to a different airline flight? Do you recommend?


    I shoud say that incoming is Cathay Pacific from Hong Kong and outgoing is RyanAir to Catania, Sicily.


    I think it's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    I will be going to Paris from Brazil with connection in FCO, both flights are operated by ALitalia and are bought on the same ticket. The arrival in FCO is scheduled for 7am and the departure for France at 8am


    Yes, it's possible but doesn't leave much time to spare.


  • How much time should I allow for a connection
    Mar 14, 2017
    I am arriving at Fiumicino from Cagliari on Alitalia at 10:00 am. Will I have enough time to gather my luggage, check it in with United Airlines, and go through customs and make it on to a 1:20 pm flight? If not, how much more time should I allow?


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
