Arriving from Detroit at 9:15AM on Delta. Flight to Malta at 10:20AM on Alitalia. Carry on only. Is this enough time? What terminals? Thank you.
These are separate tickets also
You will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 1. This is a very difficult connection, but not impossible if everything goes perfectly.
HI, I'm traveling from OLB (Sardinia) to FCO arriving at 0755, then FCO to CLT departing at 11:15. OLB to FCO is on Meridiana, then separate ticket on AA to CLT. I have just over 3 hours with checked bags. I understand I'll need to collect my bag from Meridiana flight then recheck with AA. Is 3 hrs 15 mins enough time? Thanks
Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Olbia is on-time.
Thank you so much for the information.
Hi I'm flying from Athens to Rome (arriving at 1010 Am). On a separate itinerary i am flying Rome directly to Detroit at 1115 am. What do you think
That is not possible because for your Delta flight you will have to check in in Terminal 5.
Flying from Brindisi to FCO Terminal 1 with Alitalia, then Vueling from T3 to Spain. Is 1:45 enough time to transfer? Assume will need to collect luggage and check in with Vueling.
With checked bags that will be very difficult, but not impossible.
March 2027 - arriving from Atlanta to FCO on Delta. 1.5 hours to connect (separate tickets) to VCE on AlItalia. Enough time?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. It will be difficult if you have checked bags and can't get them tagged through to Venice.
Hi All
i fly into Rome terminal 1 from Australia at 8:10am then fly to Holland terminal 3 at 10am with different carriers.
I dont know if i should buy check in bags or not because i dont have time
can anyone help
thank you
You have your terminals reversed - you will arrive in 3 and depart from 1. You don't have enough time to claim and re-check bags.
Hello, I will be flying from Tel-Aviv to Naples with a connection time of 1 hour at FCO, both flights with Alitalia (same reservation).
Do I have to claim my luggage or go through security?
Will I be able to make it on time?
Thank you.
You will have to go through Schengen Entry Passport control and security but not anything with your baggage. You have just enough time.
Great, thank you for the quick answer.
Flying on two separate reservations. Time needed between flights to clear customs and reboard
With checked bags I'd want at least 2.5 hours.
Thanks, the potential reservations are 3+ hours so Ii should be OK. On the return we fly from Catania to Rome and then change to American back to ORD. Since we don't have to go thru customs but still have checked bags, is 2 hrs enough or do I need 3?
I would want 3 since you have to take a shuttle bus to Terminal 5 to re-check your bags with American and you will have to go through Schengen Exit Passport control and security on the way to your flight.
Looking to book a flight from Malaga to Split with Alitalia. Outbound it is a 2 hour connection at FCO, it is on the same reservation but the flight is operated by Croatia Air - will my bags be checked through so I can just go to the gate & is it enough time? Inbound I have 16hrs will my luggage still be checked through? I want to book into a hotel for the night & just take my hand luggage with me.
You will have to go through Schengen Exit passport control on your way to Split. On the return if the layover is overnight you will probably have to claim your bags in Rome and re-check them the next morning.
I will take two flights on a single ticket with Alitalia, first from London (Heathrow) to Rome then to Brazil, with a wait of 1h30min in Rome. Will that be enough time to pass through customs?
Since you are not entering the Schengen Area you won't have to go through passport control or customs and can just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
