AZ1492 VRN-FCO lands in T1
1 hour transit
AZ610 FCO-JFK leaves from T3

Will I have to go through passport and security again? Must I take a train? Thanks a lot!
You will have to go through Schengen exit passport control. You may or may not have to take a train to the T3 Satellite. It is a risky connection but not impossible.
Hi. I'm flying from NRT to FCO with Alitalia (STA 7:05am) then I want to connect Air Europe flight to MAD (STD 10:30am) With checked baggage and separate ticket. Is it enough time ?
Yes, that should be enough time.
Hi. Flying from Tel Aviv to New York (JFK) via Rome. Is 1:20 min connection time enough?
Flying Alitalia on one ticket with a family of 6 and checked luggage.
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Tel Aviv is on-time.
Hello. I have schedules an Blueair flight Otopeni to Rome terminal 2 and then another booking Alitalia Rome to NewYork. Question: Can my luggage go directly to USA even if I travel with 2 different companies, or I have to retrieve luggage in terminal 2 and move again to check in in terminal 1 for AZ608 ? Same question when I come back from USA.
arrive in terminal 2 and new departure is in terminal 1 ....only to be clear
Sorry departure terminal 3 not 1
You will have to claim your bags and re-check it with Alitalia.
Hi I'm flying from the US and land in FCO flying Lufthansa (terminal 3) at 1235pm with checked luggage. Trying to book a separate flight to Paris same day. I searched all airlines and it seems the only available times are 245pm and 550pm. Question is, will we make the 245pm flight? We want to make that flight because if it's the 550pm flight we end up at the airport for 5 1/2 hours, but if it's unrealistic to book the 245 then we will have to do the 550. Thank you much.
Lufthana doesn't fly from the US to Rome. Where in the US are you flying from or are you stopping in Germany first?
Hi. We are arriving with Air Serbia from Belgrade (from Tel Aviv) at terminal 1 19:35 and have an Emirates flight form terminal 3 at 22:05 (first class...hopefully quick check in). Will this be enough time on a Thursday evening? Do we need to go through passport control/security on arrival and departure? Thanks
Arrive Terminal 1 and depart Terminal 1. About 30 minutes to make connection. Do I have to go through security again or do I go directly to the gate?
You can go straight to the departure gate.
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, If I have a connected flight with Alitalia from Tunis to Venice with 1h10min layover in Rome, would this gave me enough time to change the terminals from 3 to 1?
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
