    When you arrive you will go through passport control and to your departure gate. You should have just enough time.

    I am coming from Catania heading back to Amsterdam. Is 1 hour sufficient time for those with US passports to make the connection at FCO?


    Yes. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Since Italy and the Netherlands are both in the Schengen Area there are no passport controls on that journey.

    I am thinking about booking a Delta flight from VCE to FCO to ATL I am worried the connection time at FCO is tight. I would only have an hour between flights DL6699 and DL65. Is this enough time to make the connection at FCO? I have only carry on bags and am traveling on one ticket.


    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Flying BA 556 into FCO, ARR at 17:50, then to AZ 1789 to PMO at 20:55. Only have carry-on so will I have enough time to clear customs and immigration and check-in for the 20:55 to PMO? Thanks.


    Yes, that is plenty of time. Check in for your Alitalia flight online before leaving your origin city to save some time.


  • Flying through to Palermo
    Jul 6, 2016
    We are arriving Rome on British Airways at 4:40 (flying from the US and connecting through LHR) and connecting to to Palermo on Al Italia at 7:30 at FCO. Will we need to go through customs? Is this enough time to make our flight to PMO?


    Yes, when you arrive in Rome you will go through Immigration, claim your bags, and go through Customs. You will then have to go to Terminal 1, re-check your bags with Alitalia and go through security. You have just enough time.


  • MYK--> Rome --> Split
    Jul 6, 2016
    Flight arrives in Rome from Mykonos at 16:15 on blue express. I will then have 2 hours 25 mins to go through security, passport control, collect bags, check in and get to Vueling flight leaving at 19:55. I am on an AUstralian passport. Is this enough time ? or is it too tight?


    There's no passport control after arriving from Mykonos since Greece and Italy are both in the Schengen Area. You will just go through Schengen exit passport control before your flight to Split. You should have enough time.

    I have a flight from Budapest to Rome (Delta ticket, operated by Alitalia) then Delta flight from Rome to Atlanta. Same ticket. Bag should be able to be checked through in Budapest to Atlanta? Upon arrival in Rome will I need to go to Terminal 5 or only Shengen exit passport control and directly to the gate? Thanks!


    You don't have to go to Terminal 5.

    I am flying into Rome on American with checked bags, then going on to Malta on a different carrier (Imhave not yet purchased the connecting ticket). The AA flight arrives at 9:40 a.m. How much time should I allow to get through passport control, get my bags, check in and go through security/passport to the gate. MAlso, is their one carrier for the Malta flight that would make this easier?


    I would allow 3 hours. Flying Air Malta or Vueling will be easier than Alitalia or RyanAir because Air Malta and Vueling use the same terminal that you will arrive in.

Also If i checked a bag on Alitalia will they transfer it to the Delta flight Or will I have to claim it and recheck it? I have 2hr connection time, is this enough?


    Are both tickets on the same reservation or are they on two separate reservations?


  • Belgrade to London
    Jul 1, 2016
    I arrive into FCO from Belgrade at 19:35. I have to self-transfer, so go through passport control, then go back through passport control, to get my next flight to London Heathrow at 21:50. Hand luggage only, UK passport. 2hrs 15. Do you think I'll make it? Thanks!


    Yes, with hand luggage that should be enough time. Since you have no checked luggage and since both flights will be in Terminal 3 you can check in online or go to the transfer desk for your boarding pass to London without having to go through passport control.


    Thank you!


    I'm going to have a flight from Moscow to Rome and then in 1 hour 50 min from Rome to Los Angeles(both Alitalia). Will I have to get my baggage in Rome myself or it will be delivered to the final destination?

    If I land at 5:20 pm, will I have enough time to get my checked bag and then make it to Terminal 2 for a 9:05 pm flight to Bari? I'm flying in from Germany so I think I land in Terminal 1.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.
