  • Is 1 hour 40 minutes enough time between flights?
    Apr 2, 2016
    Hi! I'll be travelling from OLB to FCO on 19-06-16, arriving at 7:55 am. Will In have enough time to make a 9:35 am flight to ZRH on Swiss? Thank you!


    Yes, that should be enough time if you don't have checked bags. It will be difficult with checked bags on two separate reservations since you will have to transfer your bags from Alitalia to Swiss


    Thank you for your response! I forgot to mention that I'm flying Meridiana from OLB. Does that make a difference?


    No, it doesn't really make a difference.


  • can we make a 45min connection ?
    Apr 2, 2016
    Arriving from JFK DL 444 landing 1045am, Terminal 3 FCO - and continuing to TLV with AZ 0808 departing 11:30am, Terminal 1 Can we make this connection ? (I booked it as one reservation with AF/KLM miles) Thank you !


    I think that will be very difficult, but it's not impossible.

  • MUC to FCO to ORD
    Mar 30, 2016
    Hi. I am a US citizen traveling through Europe in May. I am looking to fly Lufthansa from Munich to FCO with a landing time of 8:05 AM. I then plan to catch an American Airlines flight to ORD at 11:20 AM. I will have checked bags that I will need to pick up in terminal 3 and re-check at terminal 5. Is this enough time to get between terminal 3 and terminal 5 at FCO?


    That should be just about enough time.


  • Time to from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5
    Mar 29, 2016
    We're arriving from Moscow by Alitalia to terminal 3 and then travelling to Canada by Airtransat from Terminal 5. We're Canadian citizens and have luggage. Will 2.5 hours be enough time to transfer from one flight to another?


    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


    Thank you for your answer. What if we don't have luggage?


    That helps, but not much. You still have to take an unreliable shuttle bus to Terminal 5.


  • connection time
    Mar 29, 2016
    Arrive FCO Alitalia 4/17 12:45, PM; depart to Venice Alitlia 4/17 2:15 PM. One ticket, checked bag through to Venice. Arrival terminal? Departing terminal? Enough time?


    Where are you arriving from?


    Boston USA


    You will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 1. You should have enough time.


  • Not sure if enough time?
    Mar 28, 2016
    Hello; I am considering a flight option from Toronto, Canada -- Alitalia YYZ - FCO, connecting FCO - ICN also Alitalia, with a 2 hour connection. I don't know which terminal these flights will arrive and leave from. Would there be enough time between flights? Thank you for your help!


    Both flights will be in Terminal 3. You should have enough time.


    Thanks again!


  • Connecting at FCO
    Mar 29, 2016
    I arrive at FCO on United from EWR at 7:45am and have a connecting flight on Alitalia to Venice at 10:10am (separate ticket). Is it worth trying to check my bags through to VCE at EWR or will we have to retrieve bags to clear immigration in Rome anyway? United has interline agreement with Alitalia so my plan was to check all the way through to minimize connection time. Thanks!


    You would not have to claim your bags in Rome if they are tagged through to Venice. However, I highly doubt United will do this for you.


    Thanks! Any reason in particular you think they won't do it with Alitalia? We've had United interline babes through with TAM, Thai, Malaysian Air, etc in the past with no issue. I guess my main question was whether we would have a better chance making the connection if our bags are checked through or do we need to retrieve them and re-check in Rome regardless?


  • T3 to T1
    Mar 26, 2016
    Arrive T3 on united From DC. I bave One Hours and twenty minutes to Go to T1 for a Flight to Algero in Sardinia...only carry on luggage. Do I need to go through customs or security again? Is this enough time.


    You will just go through Schengen Passport control. With only carry-ons that should be possible. Check in for your Alitalia flight online before you leave DC.


  • Arrive from Venice connecting to Chicago
    Mar 26, 2016
    Hi, I am looking to fly from vce to fco arriving at 8:45 and departing for Chicago at 9:30; it would all be on one Alitalia ticket and would not have to recheck bags; is 45 minutes enough time to get to the flight?


    It's not impossible, but its' very difficult.


  • Transiting from Catania, Sicily to Tirana, Albania on Alitalia ticket
    Mar 22, 2016
    Hi, looking at the above and see an option for an Alitalia flight from Catania to Tirana that has a 1 hour 15 min transit time in Rome. Do I have to clear immigration in Rome (or Sicily) - if so, is the time stated by Alitalia long enough for the transfer? Thanks for your help.


    You will go through Schengen exit passport control in Rome and Albanian immigration and customs in Tirana. You should have enough time.


  • Connection time from international flight to Schengen flight
    Mar 26, 2016
    Hi, my friend and I are due to arrive in FCO on Monday 27th June 2016 at 6:50am on Thai Airways from Bangkok. I am looking at booking a 9:15am Meridiana flight to Mykonos. Both of us will have checked baggage. Will this be sufficient time to collect our luggage, get through security and check-in for our next flight?


    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Ok thank you, we'll definitely reconsider. Would a 10:50am flight with Agean airlines be a much safer option?


    Yes, it would be.


  • american airline connection to alitalia
    Mar 19, 2016
    I have 2 separate tickets, arriving 26/3/16 on American air at 9:45am, departing Alitalia 11:30 am. Can I make this with checked bags, will paying for the express security service help? Am I ok with carry on bags? I think I arrive at terminal 3 and depart terminal 1, is there a way to let Alitalia know of this tight connection to facilitate it. any other suggestions? Thank You Xavier


    I actually arrive on the 27th, sunday morning at 9:30 am, which should be less hectic. xavier


    It will be difficult, even with express security service. No checked bags will definitely help though.


  • Athens - FCO - Barcelona
    Mar 19, 2016
    My girlfriend and I are flying from Athens and arriving at FCO at13:45, then leaving FCO at 15:00 for our flight to Barcelona. This gives 1hr and 15 minutes. Both flights are with Ali Italia but we have to re-check our bags. I know this will be tight but is it do-able? Is there any way to arrange to have the baggage checked through even though its not one ticket? Thanks!


    I think you can have your bags checked through to Barcelona by asking the Alitalia desk in Athens. That should be enough time. All flights are within Schengen.
