Topic Discussion

we have a LHE-FCO qatar airways flight arriving at 18:55 and have to take AlItalia at 21:15.I think, we have one checked baggage so we ll have to recheck again after security clearance, am I right? would it be ample time for this connection?these are two separate bookings.
Please mention the terminal we ll have to change for this connection.
Thanks in advance.
Where are you flying to on Alitalia?
flying to Bari, Lahore-Abu Dhabi-Rome-Bari. Rome to Bari is a separate ticket that we are planning to book.
The flight to Bari will depart from Terminal 1. That would be a difficult connection but not impossible if everything went smoothly.
Family with luggage arrive 7:10 pm from Malta and need to transfer to international departure 8:55 Air China to Beijing. Will this be enough time?
That will be pretty difficult if it's two separate reservations.
It is one "round trip" reservation through Expedia with single ticket numbers, but I don't know what that means for 2 different airlines that don't seem to have a formal "partnership" (Alitalia & Air China). Thanks!
It means your bags should still be checked through, so all you should have to do in Rome is go through Schengen Exit passport control, possibly to the Air China transfer desk, and then to your departure gate.
Flying JFK-CATANIA via Rome how much time should we leave for connection and do we need to claim bags and re check if booked on one ticket
You don't have to claim bags in Rome if it's just one ticket. I would want 90 minutes.
How to I get to TI from T3--I understand that I have only a short time to catch my AZ 1575 flight.
If you don't have checked bags to transfer then just follow signs to your departure gate. You will go through security and Schengen Entry Passport control on your way.
I will be arriving at FCO 6/28/17 at 7:30 am and have to get my Athens flight at 8:45 am. I have one carry on backpack. Will I make my flight?
Where are you flying into Rome from? What airlines?
From Chicago O'Hare on AirFrance. Going to Athens on Alitalia.
Air France does not fly from Chicago to Rome. So then both flights are likely on Alitalia. That is enough time if both flights are on the same reservation and the flight from Chicago is on-time.
Yes and I sure hope so. Thanks!
Arriving on Singapore Airlines at 0805 at Terminal 3, Need to connect to an Alitalia flight to Bari from terminal 1 departing at 0950. Seperate tickets and will have checked luggage. Is there enough time to make this connection possible?
It's barely possible if everything goes perfectly.
Thanks for that. We are concerned about the short connection but will get our skates on and hopefully make it. Can you tell me how far it is between T3 and Ti when transiting please?
I'm flying ORD-TXL-FCO on two separate airlines that were purchased on the same ticket. Will I have to recheck my bags at TXL
What two airlines?
American Airlines and Air Berlin
Then no, you won't have to do anything with your bags in Berlin, just go through Schengen Entry Passport control and to your departure gate.
Thank you. Approximately how long does Schengen Entry Passport control take? I have a two hour layover
In Berlin it shouldn't take too long, maybe 10-15 minutes tops.
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.
