    Hello! I am about to book a round trip from Toronto to Barcelona via Rome from Alitalia's website. I have 2 hour layover for the one from Toronto to Barcelona and I have 1hr20min for the flight from Madrid back to Toronto. Do I need to claim my luggage when I am in Rome. Will I have enough time to make it? Thanks!


    No, you will not have to claim your luggage in Rome. Both connection times are sufficient.


    Thanks for the quick response ZAP!!! Highly appreciated!!!

    Nov 23, 2014
    Hi there, Sofia-Rome-Cagilari. we will land on T3 Rome and have to take it from T1 to Cagilari. We will also have shengen pass control . So could you advise whether we have enogh time to make it?We won't be waiting for luggage as it will be checked in directly SF-Caglliari-it's always the same company and the same ticket for the trip. Also please advise how to make it from T3 to T1- by bus or it is indoor walkway between both terminals? Many thanks for your help


    Yes, that should be enough time. There is a walkway.

    Yes, 20 to 25 minutes sounds about right.

    hello, I will have transit of one hour only. I'm coming from Florence via Alitalia and suppose to change from terminal one to terminal three to catch emirates flight to Dubai. Is it possible since I don't have luggages.


    You will arrive as a 'Schengen' (domestic) arrival at T1, Boarding Area B - all you need to do is follow signs to "Boarding Area D or H" (depending at which one Emirates depart from - look at overhead screens for Airline & gates). Note that Gates H1, H2, H3 are on the first level, while an escalator takes you to gates H6 - H19A.


  • Tia-Paris
    Nov 8, 2014
    Hello I am traveling to Paris from Tirana. I land in Rome at 07:15 and my next flight to Paris is 08:05. Do i have enough time to go from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1? From tarmac to bus transfer and airport entrance do i go left or right to transit area?


    That will be difficult to make as you will also have to go through Schengen passport control.


    When i go from bus transfer to airport entrance, transit is left or right? THANK YOU SO MUCH


  • 1 hour transit in fco from Beirut to Madrid
    Nov 5, 2014
    I am travelling from Beirut to Madrid on Friday. My transit time is 1 hour only in Fiumicino Airport. The plane stops on tarmac and the transfer to the airport is by bus. Do i have time to change from T3 to T1 and catch my flight to Madrid ?


    It will depend on your first flight being on-time. It's doable.


  • Transfer from terminal 3 to terminal 1
    Nov 5, 2014
    I fly from Belgrade to Bologna via Rome with ALITALIA. Transfer time is only 1 hour. Arrival time (from Belgrade) is 13:40 and departing time for Bologna is 14:40. Do I have enough time to transfer and how easily and quickly to transfer from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1? I only have hand luggage. Where I go to passport control, in Roma or in Bologna? Thanks in advance.


    You will have enough time but it doesn't leave much time to spare. You will go through Schengen passport control and security in Rome.


  • Domestic to International

    Am flying into Rome from Venice arriving 8.55am and needing to fly out for international flight, leaving at 12md. These weren't booked together. Is there enough time to get luggage and to the necessary check in by the 2hour before flight? (so an hour in between landing and check in)

  • 1 hour transit in fco to florence

    Hello i will be arriving from bucharest via air italia,and i have a 1 hour transit then i will go to florence petrola airport via airitalia as well(no need to recheck the luggage)...do i have enough time? Thanks!

  • Transit from terminal 1 to terminal 5 for the flight to Atlanta
    Oct 31, 2014
    Please kindly provide me indications on how to get to terminal 5 from terminal 1, do I need to follow transit indication since I will be arriving from Catania? which gate has been scheduled for the flight Rome - Atlanta ? Should I be doing the check in once again?


    Did you purchase separate tickets or together? If you purchased tickets together and are given your Atlanta boarding pass in Catania, you can access your departure gate in T3 through T3 Schengen exit passport control without going to T5 first (T5 has no actual gates). Once you get there approach the Delta agent as they will have to check your documents and issue you a new boarding pass.

    Hi, I'll be arriving FCO from Toronto YYZ at 1:15PM and getting on the AZ 844 to Lagos LOS at 2PM. Please is 45mins enough for this transfer?


    It should be as both flights will be in the Terminal 3 satellite and since you won't be entering the Schengen Area you won't have to go through passport control. However, it obviously leaves very little time to spare in case of a delay.


    I see. Thank you


  • terminal 3 to terminal 1 connection
    Oct 29, 2014
    Arriving from Toronto at terminal 3 at 1:15pm. Connecting flight Alitilia terminal 1 to Munich at 2:35pm terminal 1. We don't have EU passports. Will we be able to make our connection ?


    forgot to say that both flights are Alitalia.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Is an hour enough?
    Oct 28, 2014
    Is 1 hour and 10 minutes enough time to catch a plane at FCO? I am flying from Atlanta to FCA via Delta and then from FCO to Bucharest with Delta as well (DL6615). Is an hour enough time to make this connection?


    FCO* Sorry


    Your flight to Bucharest will not be operated by Delta, it will be operated by Alitalia and will depart from Terminal 3, the same Terminal from which you should arrive. You will not have to go through Schengen Immigration as you will not be entering the Schengen area. You should be able to go directly from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
