    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

    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.

    I'm arriving on USAirways at 8:30 at FCO airport. Will I have enough time to clear customs to fly out on Air Malta at 11. Thank you in advance for your response. I'm traveling alone!!


    I think you'll have enough time. You won't have to change terminals. Were your tickets bought on one reservation or separately? If they were bought on one reservation US Airways may be able to transfer your bags to Air Malta for you.

    hi i am travelling from dubai to rome to terminal2 at 8.05pm and want to catch altalia domestic airline to florence at 9.30pm do i need to go thru passport control? is it able to make the connection?


    On arrival at FCO you need to go through 'non-Schengen' (foreign) passport control. Thereafter your Alitalia flight may depart from Terminals 1 or 3: T1 has Boarding area B, gates B1-30; T3 has Boarding areas D & H with gates D1-10 & H6-19. The overhead screens on arrival will indicate connecting flight number & gate. All Boarding Areas B - H are inter-connected. Your transfer time should suffice.


    sujun is incorrect. First. Your flight from Dubai will arrive in Terminal 3. Secondly, all domestic Alitalia flights leave from Terminal 1. You will go through immigration in Terminal 3. You might have trouble if your flight has any delays.


  • uae to rome then florence
    Jun 9, 2013
    i am travvelling from uae to rome by emirates to rome terminal2 and reaching 8.05 , is it possible i can catch 9.30 domestic flight to florence? do i have to go thru passport control?? plz help!@


    On arrival at FCO you need to go through 'non-Schengen' (foreign) passport control. Thereafter your domestic flight to Florence depends on which Boarding Area /gate you depart from. The overhead screens on arrival will indicate connecting flight number & gate. All Boarding Areas B - H (each with corresponding gates (like C16) are inter-connected. Your transfer time should suffice. Make sure that Emirates will transfer your bags to your connecting airline; otherwise you would have to claim your bags on arrival & check them in at the connecting terminal.


  • 45 minutes to transfer.

    Hi. We are flying into FCO at 10 am on Air Malta. We need to board a Delta (Alitalia) flight at 10:45 to Toronto Canada. Is this feasible? thank you.


    Yes, barely. You will arrive and depart from the same terminal (Terminal 3).


  • how much layover time needed?
    Jun 6, 2013
    flying lax to rome on Alitalia, landing Terminal 3, departing Terminal 1 for Venice one hour later. Is this enough time if flights are on schedule? do we have to go through customs/immig in rome?


    I really don't think that's enough time. Yes, you will go through immigration in Rome.

    I will be arriving Rome Terminal B at 745am by SQ366 and leaving for Nice by Alitalia AZ0348 1 - Will I be able to connect in time ? 2 - Which terminal is AZ0348 departing from ?


    You may be looking at the old Terminal names. Your Singapore flight will arrive in Terminal 3 and your Alitalia flight will depart from Terminal 1. You didn't tell us the time of your second flight so I don't know if you will have enough time.

    I will fly from Singapore by SQ and arrive at rome at7.45am, will I be able to check out and claim my baggage and rechevk in at terminal 1 for fklight from rome to fkorence by Alitaliaa depart at 9.40?


    That will be a very tough connection to make.


  • meeting up arriving from two places
    Jun 3, 2013
    My Wife and I are meeting up In Rome, She is arriving on US Airways IDK which terminal, but I am arriving from on Lufthansa at terminal 3, where will be a good place to meet up, our flights both arrive at approx. the same time, should we both clear customs first and meet after, or before and go through together?


    You will both arrive in Terminal 3. If you're on lufthansa you won't go through immigration as Germany is in Schengen. So you'll want to meet your wife after she exits immigration.


    thanks this helps


  • Transfer from T2 to T1

    I am scheduled to arrive from Doha at FCO by Qatar Airways and take the connecting Alitalia Flight from T1 to Turino, Considering that its my first trip to Italy The time between the flights is 3 hrs. Do you think its enough.


    Your Qatar Airways flight will arrive in Terminal 3, not Terminal 2. You should have enough time.




  • Check through baggage and Immigration
    May 30, 2013
    We are going to fly from Washington DC Dulles Airport through FCO (by United UA966), continuing to Singapore Changi airport (by Singapore airlines SQ365). We have about 2.5 hours transit time. Our questions are: Can the luggage be checked through to Singapore (both UA and SQ are star alliance)? We are Indonesian Nationality, do we have to have a Schengen visa for passing through Rome FCO airport? Appreciate any response.


    If your tickets were bought on the same reservation, yes, your bags can be checked through. I believe you will need a schengen visa as I do not believe FCO has a sterile non-schengen connection area like some European airports.


    Indeed your UA & SQ are members of the Star Alliance. However, as a non-Schengen arrival at FCO (UA is in Terminal 5 - designated for US & Israel flights) you need to go through passport check before proceeding via special shuttle to your connecting SQ flight at Terminal 3. T3 has Boarding Areas D (gates D1-10) and Area H (gates H6-19). You have plenty of time for transfer.


    Your arrival will be processed in Terminal 3 - you don't have to take any shuttle. No arriving flights use Terminal 5.


    Thank you for your reminder about tickets have to reserved/issued together. We will check with UA & SQ.
