  • JMK -->FCO--->ATL // time need to change airlines in FCO
    Mar 14, 2015
    Hello - we (US Citizens) are looking at a flight from Mykonos (JMK) arriving to FCO at 10:00am on Aegean Airlines. Need to then get on Delta flight from FCO to Atlanta, USA (ATL) departing 12:15pm. Will that be enough time to collect bags and make the change in FCO? I assume we will not have to go through customs in FCO since Italy and Greece are in the Schengen Area? Thanks in advance!


    Yes, but you will have to hurry to the shuttle bus to T5 to check in with Delta.


  • connection time
    Mar 10, 2015
    Hello, we are flying from Tel Aviv to Toronto with AlItalia and there is 1h55m connection at FCO. Is that enough time to change flight? Thank you


    Yes, that should be enough time. Since you are not entering the Schengen Area you should just have to walk between gates within Terminal 3.


  • Connecting in FCO
    Mar 9, 2015
    Hello, We are travelling from Madrid to Rome on Iberia at 11:10 and have a flight to Palermo on Vueling at 12:50, is this enough time to make the connection? Do we need to go through customs in Rome? Thanks.


    Without checked baggage that should be enough time. With checked baggage it will be difficult as you will have to transfer it yourself. No, you do not go through customs as Spain and Italy are both within the Schengen Area.


  • VCE to FCO to MIA
    Mar 8, 2015
    I purchased separate tickets but all Delta affiliates; Alitalia VCE to FCO arrives T1 at 8:50am and depart Air Europa FCO to MIA at 10:30am T1. Is 1.40hr enough time to connect? Will Alitalia check baggage to MIA on Air Europa, final destination?


    You can show your Air Europa confirmation to the Alitalia agent in Venice and ask them to check your bags through to Miami. If they do not it will be difficult for you to make your connection in Rome in time.


  • MIA to FCO & FCO to CDG on Alitalia
    Mar 8, 2015
    We arrive in terminal 3 at 12:30 pm on an Alitalia flight from Miami. We booked a separate ticket on Alitalia to Paris departing at 5:05 pm. It looks like this flight will leave from Terminal 1. Do we have enough time? I was told we have to retrieve our luggage and go through customs in FCO because the flights were ticketed separately.


    Yes that is correct and yes that should be plenty of time.


    Sorry...flight leaves for Paris at 3:05 not 5:05. Do we still have enough time? Thank you.


    Yes, that's probably still enough time, but leaves a lot less to spare.


  • Singapore Airlines & Vueling
    Mar 5, 2015
    Hello, I arrive in Rome (Terminal 1) with Singapore Airlines at 07:50 and due to fly out of Rome to Split, Croatia on Vueling at 10:05. Will this be enough time to clear immigrations, get luggage and make the flight? Are both Vueling and Singapore Airlines in Terminal 1? Thanks


    No, both airlines are in Terminal 3. You will have a hard time making that connection since they are two separate tickets.


  • Enough time to transfer?
    Mar 4, 2015
    We are booked to fly from Skopje (Macedonia non-Schengen) to Venice via FCO arriving 7.15am and leaving 8.25am. Are we able to check our luggage from Skopje to Venice? With Australian passports will there be enough time to transit (got through immigration etc) with only 1 hour 10 minutes? Thank you!


    If you purchased your tickets together your bags will be sent straight to Venice. That should be enough time. Schengen passport control is pretty lax for passport holders from developed countries.


    Thanks ZAP. Yes tickets are on one PNR. I also did some research and seems to be in and out of terminal 1 which of course makes it all easier too I imagine.


  • Connection on Alitalia separate booking
    Mar 1, 2015
    Hi, I will be arriving in Rome from the US at 8:10AM. I need to make a separate one way booking to Athens on Alitalia. I would like to get to Athens as early as possible; what is the safest bet on time I will need to collect luggage, passport control, and re-check luggage with Alitalia?


    At least 2 hours, preferably a little more than that. Italians aren't exactly known for their punctuality.


  • delta from ATL-FCO connecting Alitalia flight CTA

    Hi, I have the abouve flights with a 1:30 layover at FCO is this going to be a problem?


    That should be enough time.


  • Layover Time of 1hr 30 mins
    Feb 26, 2015
    I have a flight from Athens to Rome (FCO - terminal 1) that then connects me from Rome (FCO - terminal 3) to Toronto. I have a layover of 1hr and 30mins. Is this enough time to clear passport control and change from terminal 1 to 3?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Just follow the signs to your departure gate. You will pass through Schengen Exit passport control on the way.


  • Connection terminal 3 to terminal 1 non schengen.
    Feb 24, 2015
    My flight with Emirates during the holiday season (august) willl arrive at 13:20 at terminal 3, and will depart from terminal 1 at 15:00 with Alitalia. We booked both flights seperatly, which forces us to first pick up our bags from the Emirates flight and move to the Alitalia checkin (and checkin again ofcourse). This all needs to be done within 1 hour and 40 minutes. Is this even possible? And do we need to pass the customs again? Thanks!


    You will clear Schengen Passport control on your path to the Emirates baggage claim. Since you say where you are flying on Alitalia is non-schengen you will have to go through Schengen exit passport control, but as you may know that's a very quick process. You will also have to go through security. It's possible, but quite difficult to make the connection you describe.

    Hi, I have a Delta ATL-FCO flight that lands at 9:50am, with a connection on Alitalia FCO-MLA at 10:50am. It is part of one ticket, but will I be able to make the connection? Do I need to go through security and customs?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through Schengen passport control and security on your way to Terminal 1.


  • Flying from St. Petersburg to Skopje(Macedonia) through Rome
    Feb 21, 2015
    Arriving at FCO at 20:30 on Sunday from St. Petersburg. Flight to Skopje is at 21:45. Tickets purchased together. 1h 15 min is enough time? I might have only carry-on luggage. Need to go through Schengen exit on my way to terminal 1?


  • Baggage & Transit time
    Feb 21, 2015
    Hey there all, I'm a Moroccan Passeport holder, I got a roundtrip with Alitalia between Casablanca- Istanbul transit at FCO I have 3 questions : -As a Moroccan, am I gonna need a Italian Transit visa or an a ATV for transfers to/from Terminal 3/1. - I will arrive with alitalia at FCO T3 at 20:15 for a 2:25 Layover to Casablanca at 22:40, am I gonna need to take the luggage & recheck in with Alitalia ? or it's an Auto transfer ? (I don't wanna lose it) -There's a lot of negative reviews about Alitalia & FCO Airport about baggages, is there any suggestions ? Thank you.


    I believe we have the same flight just 1 more question added to this subject. On those hours FCO will be crowded like always ? for the 2:30 Minutes transit


    Your baggage will be transferred automatically. You will have enough time. I believe you will need a Schengen Airport Transit Visa issued by the Italian embassy or consulate.


    Thank you Zap, just verified that I don't need an ATV, but if you can still help me, if I changed from T3 to T1 am I gonna be obliged to enter schengen area ? or there's a Alitalia transit airside check in ?


    I believe there's a walkway directly from T3 to the Non-Schengen area of T1.


  • Air Canada to Aliltalia (Palermo)
    Feb 20, 2015
    Arrive Air Canada on 6/17/15 at 8:30am. Will we have enough time to make connection via Alitalia to Palermo at 10:05am?


    Purchased on one reservation I think that's enough time. Purchased separately it will be a bit difficult.
