  • NEED HELP!!! Do I have enough time from T3 to T1??
    Jun 10, 2014
    Hello, I am traveling to Brindisi from Colombia next August. I will travel from Bogota to Lisboa on TAP Airlines where I will go through Shenghen immigration and will take my first connection to Rome also with TAP. I will arrive at 18.40 in Terminal 3 and will only have a carry on bag. I plan to take the 19.30 Alitalia flight to Brindisi departing from Terminal 1. If I only have a carry on bag, come from Lisboa and have my FCO - BDS boarding ticket from the web check in, do i have to go through any security checkpoint from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 or can I just go straight to the gate of the Alitalia flight? I if don't take the 19.30 flight I have to wait 2 hours. Thank you for your information.

    I arrive at Terminal 3 (Delta Airlines from Detroit) at 8:45 AM and depart Terminal 1 at 10:20 AM (Alitalia ticketed through Delta). Will I have to go through security again? Will I make it?

    Connecting through FCO in August. Arriving at 1105am via Easy Jet from Mykonos, then connecting to Start Alliance trip (FCO-FRA-SFO). My Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt leaves at 1325pm. Do I need to collect luggage and go through customs? Is this enough time between flights?


  • Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 in 55 minutes
    Jun 13, 2014
    I have booked flights with Alitalia from Vienna/Austria (VIE) to New York City/USA (JFK) via Rome (FCO). Will arrive in FCO Terminal 1 with Alitalia AZ 0189 on saturday 28th june at 13:50 and my connecting flight is Alitalia AZ 0610 from Terminal 3 at 14:45. There are only 55 minutes! Is that possible?


    You have to go through a brief Schengen exit passport check and then security at your departure gate. 1 hr 45 minutes should be plenty of time.


  • Fastest way from Terminal 1 to Terminal 5
    Jun 6, 2014
    I have 2 hours 15 minutes between flights, arriving in T1 and departing from T5 without checked bags. Is the only way to go by walking from T1 to the shuttle stop at T3 and then taking the shuttle to T5? Does the T5 shuttle pick up at T1? Is it possible to just take a taxi from T1 to T5 in a couple of minutes, or will they not do that?

  • Split, Croatia to Istanbul via Rome FCO
    Jun 4, 2014
    Hi! We're flying from Split to Istanbul with a crazy short layover in Rome of only 50 minutes. Just wondering if that's insane or we should be ok. No bags, just carry on. Also wondering if we need to go through security/customs?


  • Florence to Rome (Alitalia)-Rome to Detroit (Delta)
    Jun 4, 2014
    I am flying Florence to Rome arriving into FCO Terminal 1 without checked baggage. I then fly 2 hours later Rome to Detroit from Terminal 3 Gate G on Delta with a separate ticket. Do I have to exit Terminal 1 and go all the way to Terminal 5 to check in, or can I go directly from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 without going through security again?


  • Venice to Rome, Rome to Los Angeles layover

  • Terminals?
    Jun 8, 2014
    I am flying Qantas codeshare Emirates arriving in Rome at 13.15hrs and departing with Alitalia to Lamezia at 16.40hrs. Will my flight arrive at Terminal 3 and do I have sufficient time for the transfer


    Terminal 2 to Terminal 3.


    You will have to collect your luggage as Easyjet does not check bags through to other airlines. However, there will be no customs or immigration in Rome as both Italy and Greece are within Schengen. You will go through US Immigration and Customs when you get to SFO. You should have enough time.

    hello, i ahve a europeen passeport. i come from paris to beyrouth. i have 80 minutes to change fly in terminal 1 wth alitalia.. is it enought and do we need to recheck passeport. Thank's


    As you are a non-Schengen arrival at FCO, your transfer time should suffice. I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    is this any indication to follqw (like the TRANSIT or CONNECTION WORD) ? Thank's


    We are US citizens


  • enough time for connection?
    May 24, 2014
    I arrive with Delta Airlines from Atlanta to Rome at 7.30am will land in terminal 3 and I am thinking to buy a ticket Rome-Vienna with AirBerlin that leaves at 8.50am from terminal 3. I have an European Passport (spanish), I will have 80min will it be enough time to make the connection?


    You are a non-Schengen arrival at FC0 and need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and proceed with your bag to the AirBerlin counter for re-check-in (as you have 2 separate tickets and your airlines don't belong to the same Alliance). Since you don't need to change terminals, your time should suffice.

    How to go from terminal 1 to terminal 3


    There is a well signed route. You can either walk along the curbfront or through the terminal, depending on your needs.


    Thank you for your help. do you know how long it takes walking from 1 to 3 ?


    At FCO Boarding Areas domestic boarding areas are connected. You arrive at Boarding gate Area B and head for boarding Area D or H of T3.(D or H gates) - simply follow 'Boarding Area" signs.

    I am flying from Athens to Venice via Rome. I have a 50 minute layover in Rome before my connection to Venice.Do I need to clear immigration or customs in Rome? If so, are 50 minutes enough?


    There will be no immigration or customs, both Greece and Italy are within the Schengen area.


    Thank you. Will 50 minutes be enough layover time between the 2 flights?


    Yes, that should be enough time.
