I will land FCO at 8:00 am on a Delta flight from US and am booked on a separate ticket on Vueling to Dubrovnik, departing 10:00 am. Both arriving and departing flights should be Terminal 3. However, Vueling (after I booked) said that I cannot get boarding pass to DBV on-line and must go to a "check-in desk" at FCO AND that I must be checked in no less than 45 min before departure. I will only have carry-on and thought that I would be able to go directly from Delta gate to Vueling gate. Now, however, am concerned that I'll have to go outside of security and stand in line at outer Vueling desk, then re-enter security, etc. Plus boarding gate closes 20 min before departure. Am concerned that I won't make this connection, esp. if Delta runs even a few min. late. Can I get Vueling boarding pass at Vueling boarding gate? Would deeply appreciate any help or wisdom. Thanks!
With a carry-on only I think it's possible but certainly risky. Vueling should have a transfer desk inside security.
Thank you! I will hope for a transfer desk, and will move quickly!
JFK-FCO-FRA. Stop over for 1 hr and 30 minutes in FCO. Italy is one of the listed Schengen area, no need for transit visa? Second question, flying all the way on Alitalia ticket, enough connection time -T3 to T1? Please re-verify to give me peace of mind. Thank you in advance.
Yes, your visa issued by Germany is sufficient for entry into Italy for your connection. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, I want to know if 45mn time connection is enough (between T3 from Canton to T1 to Paris). This is the same ticket (China southern and flight operated by Air France). Many thanks
That will be really difficult.
I think so ... China southern doesn't want to change my ticket I don't recommend this company, very poor service, difficult to contact Incredible to purpose this connection time Thank you for your reply
Arriving FCO on Delta @ 10:30 am with checked bags. Departing on a separate ticket on Egyptair to Cairo at 2:00 pm. I know I have to pick up my bags and recheck them....Is this enough time? Do you know what Egyptair requirements are for checking in before departure time?
I am flying Alitalia (Delta) from JFK to Rome, arriving 8:40am on a Saturday. I am then flying to FIorence on Alitalia on a 10:30am flight. Is that enough time at the terminal? Do I need to get my luggage, go through customs, or can I get my bags checked through to Florence?
Yes, that should be enough time. You will just go through Passport control and to your departure gate if everything is on the same reservation.
