  • getting from T5 to T3
    Jul 21, 2016
    I am flying in on an AA flight to Terminal 5. I have to meet friends flying into Terminal 3. How easy and how long with this take?


    No flights arrive in Terminal 5. It is a departure only terminal. You will arrive in Terminal 3.


  • 90 Minute Layover?
    Jul 21, 2016
    Flying from ATH to YYZ with a layover in FCO. Flight from ATH is on Alitalia and have a 90 minute layover in FCO before departing on Alitalia to YYZ. We will have checked baggage and flying on one ticket. Is this possible? I assume baggage will be transfered automatically and we will have to go through passport control and security? Thank you


    Yes, that should be enough time. You won't even have to go through security, just passport control.


  • Tel Aviv to FCO to VCE
    Jul 21, 2016
    I will be arriving in Terminal 3 from Tel Aviv at 1:20pm and departing from Terminal 1 to Venice at 2:30pm. I have 1 ticket for both flights on Alitalia. The checked bags will go straight through. Do I have enough time?


    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Terminal 5 to Terminal 1
    Jul 21, 2016
    I need to go from AA in terminal 5 to Alitalia in terminal 1, I have 4 hours. But how do I get from 5 to 1, we have a lot of bags and can't walk the distance.


    You do not arrive in Terminal 5 - no flights arrive in Terminal 5. You will arrive in Terminal 3. You have enough time.


  • Alitalia flight from Moscow to Rome then another Alitalia to Toronto
    Jul 20, 2016
    Hello, is it enough time of about 55 minutes to go from one flight to another>


    You will have to go through security and to your departure gate. That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • From T3 to T2 in less than an hour?
    Jul 20, 2016
    Hi, we will arrive in T3 around 7 in the momrning and the connecting flight leaves from T2 at 8.15. All within Schengen, but will continue from Rome with a domestic flight. Any helpful hints welcome indeed. Thank you!


    Do you have checked bags? If so this will be difficult since you'll have to transfer them yourself to Ryanair. If not this should be enough time.


  • Terminal 1 to 3 In 45 minutes?
    Jul 19, 2016
    I have an Alitalia flight from Malta that lands in FCO terminal 1 at 2pm and then Alitalia to JFK (USA) that leaves 245pm. This is a legal connection according to airline. Bags will be checked through. Will we have to go through passport control? And can we walk (run) between gates/terminals or do we need to take an airport shuttle? Family of 5 so really hoping to make the connection. Thank you!!


    Yes, you will have to go through schengen exit passport control. Alitalia may call this a legal connection but it's not at all reasonable.


  • Is it enough time for baggage?
    Jul 18, 2016
    I'm flying from Belgrade to Tokyo via Rome. 100 minutes in between flights at FCO (one connected ticket, I will check the baggage for Tokyo), so I am wondering will my baggage make it on the plane for Tokyo? Thank you in advance for your experiences.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Connection between terminal 3 and 1 and stamping passport
    Jul 18, 2016
    Hi, I have a flight from Amman to Spain that has a connection at Rome via ALITALIA, I have a shengen Visa that was issued by Spanish Consulate; I was told that my Visa should be stamped/Checked first by the country who issued the visa otherwise I might not get a new one in the future. My question, when moving between terminal 3 to 1 gate (b18), will the Italians authority check my passport ? will I be considered entering the Italian lands although I did not step out of the Airport ? and what is the passport control the people is talking about ? Appreciated


    Yes, that is the passport control you will go through and the Italians will give you a Schengen Area entry stamp.


    Thank you ZAP! Is it an issue for next time shengen visa application ?


    It should not be an issue - they should have record of you entering in Italy and will have record of you exiting as long as you do so as prescribed by your visa.


  • connection between term 3 and 1
    Jul 16, 2016
    I have a reservation from LAX to FCO to Catania, all on the same ticket. will I need to pick up checked bags to clear customs in FCO or will they simply be transferred to our next flight? How much time should I allow?


    You won't have to pick up your bags in Rome.


    thanks. do you think that 1 hour 2o min will be enough time to catch our connecting flight? thank you!


  • A3 to UA FCO Connection
    Jul 16, 2016
    Flying ATH-FCO-ORD on A3 and then UA. One person on single ticket, one on separate tickets. Both will already have printed onward UA boarding passes in first class. Is it necessary to go to T5 or is an airside connection possible? Connection time is 2:40, no checked luggage.


  • Connection between terminals 3 and 5
    Jul 16, 2016
    I am flying into FCO from PMO on Vueling. My flight lands at 7:20am. I am connecting to the US on United at 9:55am. Is this enough time with checked baggage? Thank you.


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


    Thank you! I changed it to a 12:40 departure to be safe.


  • Connection between terminals 2 and 3
    Jul 15, 2016
    I have Wed, 31Aug2016 Flight VY6603 Tallinn (TLL): 04:40 to Rome (Fiumicino) (FCO):07:05. It comes to Terminal 3. I have next flight from FCO to Catania – Flight 4852 Depart FCO at 08:30 and arrive CTA at 10:00. And it will go from Terminal 2. So I have 1 h and 25 minutes between flights. It is enough time for moving from T3 to T2? How I can move from T3 to T2? Do I need pass control zone again? I have only hand luggage and I don't need visa for moving between EU countries.


    Vueling flights arrive in Terminal 3. Are you flying Ryanair to Catania? There will be no passport controls on your trip because it is entirely within the Schengen Area. If you already have your Ryanair boading pass you should be able to go directly to your departure gate.


    Thank You for answer. Yes, I am flying with Ryanair to Catania. Ryanair informed that since 28. June Ryanair operate flights from T2. And I wondering will I have enough time for changing terminals.


    I think you'll have enough time if your Vueling flight is on-time.


  • Connection Between Terminal 3 and 1
    Jul 14, 2016
    Arriving FCO at 6:45 pm on terminal 3 (TK 1863) and i have Alitalia flight to Trieste at AZ 9:25 pm from Terminal 1 (AZ1363), Both are separate tickets. I have one checked in bag. If not possible with checked in. with carry on, do i have to go through security check again?? Please suggest or best way to connection between 3 to 1. Altough i prefer checked in.


    You will have to go through security again whether you check a bag or not. If you check a bag you will have to transfer it yourself from Turkish to the Alitalia check-in desk in Terminal 1. You have just enough time.


    Thank you very much.
