    Yes, you can just walk from T1 to T3 at FCO.

    I am arriving at FCO from Split on Easy jet terminal 1at 9:40, then connect Delta at 12:55 to JFK at terminal 5. Is that enough time for Luggage and do I have to pass passport control?


    Actually, Easyjet flights arrive in the small Terminal 2, but the process is the same. You take a bus to T5. Yes, you should have enough time.

  • which terminal does KLM airline use?
    Jun 29, 2013
    I will be arriving Rome via KLM. I have to catch the tour coach bus in terminal 3 in 30 minutes after flight arrival (including claiming luggages). Do you know which terminal KLM use? Will I have enough time to catch the bus?


    Currently, at FCO all International 'Non-Schengen' flights, including U.S. flights, arrive at Terminal 3, at either Gates G or H. From there, passengers go through immigration /passport control. (Terminal 5 serves departing flights to U.S.) 30 mins is extremely short. Hopefully, the tour coach is right outside the baggage claim, or across the street in front of the Garage. Find out.


    Since both the Netherlands and Italy are in Schengen, you won't have to go through immigration in Rome. However, you will still have to hurry.


  • Connecting Flight - enough time?
    Jun 22, 2013
    I'm flying from Bari to Rome on Alitalia arriving at 7:55am. My departing flight to JFK on AA is now at 9:50am (moved up from 11:40am). I need to check a bag. Will I be able to make this connection?


    Just realized that I arrive in Terminal 1 and my departing flight is out of Terminal 5 - so I assume I need to take a bus? Is that the quickest option?


    Yes, that's your only option. If your first flight is on-time you should be OK.


    Thank you.. I was checking and today the AA flight departed from Terminal 3 (not 5). Maybe they arrive in 5 & depart from 3. So I'm hoping that is the case when we leave.


    It's the other way around - you have to go to Terminal 5 to go through security. Then you are bussed to Terminal 3 where the aircraft is. When you arrive you are processed in terminal 3. Read this: http://www.roninrome.com/%20transportation/where-to-meet-at-fco


  • First time in Europe - Surprising my boys!
    Jun 21, 2013
    I am arriving on AA in Terminal 5 and am surprising my boys and meeting them off their Iberia/Vueling flight which lands in Terminal 3. Where can I meet them so it will be a total surprise without having to call them? Also, what should I do with a 5 hour layover?


    Actually, no flights arrive in Terminal 5 - it is departures only. You will arrive in Terminal 3. I think you will probably have a hard time finding them without having a meeting place. Terminal 3 is a big place. Here is a good writeup - http://www.roninrome.com/%20transportation/where-to-meet-at-fco

    Hi, in the next few days, I will have an Alitalia flight from Florence which will arrive at Terminal 1 at 8.05 and at 9.40 am after I will have to Terminal 5 flight to Atlanta (Delta Airlines in collaboration with Alitalia). How will I get from Terminal 1 to Terminal 5? Or will I have to go directly to Gates G? 1 hour and a half I will be enough? Thanks


    You have to take a bus from Terminal 1 to Terminal 5. You will have to hope your first flight is on-time. At least Alitalia will transfer your bags for you.


    I have almost the exact same connection times. Arrive terminal 1 at 8:00am and depart Terminal 5 at 9:50am. Did you make your flight? Did you change bags? Did Alitalia check your bags through?


    Not yet.... Yes Alitalia will check my bags and i will receive to Atlanta... I am sure of this!! Have a nice trip!!

    Hi, I'm flying Alitalia ORD to SVO with a stop at FCO. Arriving to FCO at 8:00am and departing for SVO at 10:40am. I believe I'll be arriving in terminal 3 and departing from terminal 3. I'll have to go through passport control, correct? Do I need to go through immigration too? Thank you!


  • flight connection at terminal 3
    Jun 17, 2013
    Hi, I'm flying with Alitalia indirect flight, (AZ 201 and AZ 782) from London Heathrow to Tokyo with a connection at FCO Rome Fiumicino. The connection time will be 1h15mins and it's within Terminal 3. I'd like to know if there will be enough time for the transition? I'm a UK citizen so I guess I'll have to pass the passport control (Non-schegen) and additional security checks? Will Alitalia book me onto next flight to Tokyo if I missed it. Thanks in advance! Mike


    Yes, you should have enough time. If you miss your connection AZ will book you on the next flight, but that would probably be the next day.

    hi i wrote my setuition befor and i want to add that i havnt got any luggege with me so can i go from ter 3 to ter 2 direct with out passing the immegration section because i havnt have shengen visa thank you


    As a 'non-Schengen' (foreign) arrival at FCO you need to go through passport check, and thereafter head for Terminal 2, Boarding Area C, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your C-gate. (Boarding Areas B - H are inter-connected.)

    Hi, I would like to know, if I am arriving at FCO Rome at 7pm at Terminal 3, and plan to take an Alitalia domestic flight at 9.25 to Florence from Terminal 1, after exiting immigration, luggage pick up, customs and depositing my 2 bags at the International Arrival luggage hold for safe keeping, will I be able to make up on this flight. Secondly I will be returning back from Florence at 8.15 am at FCO Terminal 1, will I be able to exit Terminal 1, collect my luggage from hold, and check in for my international flight at terminal 3 for Toronto at 10.30 am, will I be able to make it. Also, are the Alitalia domestic flight on time, or they are delayed or cancelled. Any information or details will be highly appreciated.Thanks


    Normally, you would be ale to make your connections at FCO on time. However, with current intermittent strikes in European countries affecting flights, there is no guarantee. Note that all Boarding Areas B through H are inter-connected. When you are ready to proceed to your connecting gate, follow signs to 'Boarding Area'. Terminal 1 has Boarding Area B with gates 1-30. Keep checking the overhead screens after arrival for your Alitalia connection.


  • transfer from terminal 3 to 1
    Jun 12, 2013
    My United flight, Washington-Rome arrives terminal 3 at 8:30 am. I want to connect to Alitalia to Florence at 9:40 am in Terminal 1. I only have carry-on...is there enough time? What is the best way to do it? (walk, bus, train?)


    I really don't think that's enough time unless your United flight gets in early. You will have to clear immigration, walk to T1, check in and go through security and to your gate all in only a little more than an hour.


  • FCO terminal 5 to terminal 3
    Jun 11, 2013
    I'm arriving at FCO on Delta at 9:10 am. I assume we arrive in terminal 5 and must pass through customs. We depart on Aegean Air to Athens at 11 am. The flights were booked separately so we will have to check in at Aegean air and check bags. It looks like we will leave from terminal 3. My questions (1) will we make the connection, (2) what is the best way to get from terminal 5 to terminal 3, i.e. is it walkable or do you need to take a shuttle?


    Southwest of Terminal 3 (across from Office Tower 1) is the small Terminal 5 for US flights, where you go through passport control. T5 & T3 are connected to each other by shuttles, arriving outside of the departures level of T3, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your Boarding Area D or H (with corresponding gates, i.e., gate H19). Your time should suffice.


    Tujun is incorrect. No flights arrive in Terminal 5. It is a departure-only terminal. You will arrive in Terminal 3. All you will have to do upon arriving and clearing immigration is to go to the departures level and find the Aegean counter and check back in.
