    ZAP I just want to make certain that United arrives into terminal 3. I am flying standby in and looking to buy a confirmed ticket out and want to make sure I can make the connection. According to United flifo it says Terminal 1. My wife and I are on US passports carry on only and looking at connecting to Vueling, out of T3 i believe to Thira, but it will be a 1hr 15 min connection. Also, do we have to get on a bus after deplaning? I have read others talk about a bus. Thanks for your helo I just want to make absolutley sure.


    The flifo is referring to the departure terminal on your flight into Rome. You should not have to get on a bus upon arriving, usually United flights use the jetways, but there's no guarantee. The Vueling flight will board via a bus. You have a very difficult connection.


    Thank you. Are you aware If I am checked in already will i have to go through security again or just passport control?


    You should only have to go through passport control.


  • Where to go, enough time?
    Apr 29, 2016
    I will fly from Amsterdam to Alghero (Sardinia) with Altialia with a stop over in Rome. Arriving 19.20 in Rome, leaving at 21.30. This must be enough time for a transit, but where do I need to go? What about the checked in luggage? Which terminal? I don't know the airport and this is my first flight with a stopover. Does anyone have an advice? Thanks.


    Everything will be in Terminal 1. Since both flights are within the Schengen area all you need to do in Rome is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thanks a lot!534r79


  • can I make it?

    Arriving from SPU on Vueling; carry on only, at 8:25 am with connection to Newark on United at 9:55 am is it possible???? How far are the terminals from each other?


    this is from going from terminal 3 to 5


    I do not think this is possible. I see no way you will be at the United check in counter in T5 before the checkin cutoff. Accessing Terminal 5 requires taking a shuttle bus that runs infrequently and unreliably.


  • Arrive on United leave on SAS 55 minutes later
    Apr 28, 2016
    I am scheduled to arrive on United at 10:30 AM Saturday May 22 from US and connect at 11:25 AM on SAS to Copenhagen, on same ticket. It looks like I arrive terminal 5 and depart terminal 3 according to map on the web. Does that mean we do passport control and security and will we have enough time? Thanks


    You arrive at Terminal 3. No flights arrive in Terminal 5. You will just go through passport control and go to your departure gate. You should have just enough time assuming your United flight is on-time.


    Thanks very much Zap , glad you know the airport well!


  • Transit Passenger.. Abu Dhabi to Barcelona via FCO
    Apr 27, 2016
    I am on Etihad EY0083 arriving 13.10 terminal 3 on May 18 and departing alitalia 15.00 for Barcelona terminal 1(On the same ticket with bags checked through). I understand i need go through a Schengan passport control. Is that correct ? Do i also need to go through security again ?? Will that 1 hour 50 minutes be enough time ?


    You should have enough time. I believe you will have to go through security in Rome in addition to passport control.

    I have a united flight arriving at 8:10 am in terminal 5 with a separate flight leaving Alitalia terminal 1 at 10:25 am. I will have to recheck bags. Is there enough time or do I need a later flight


    You will arrive in Terminal 3.No flights arrive in Terminal 5. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Would you know if FCO has a separate immigration line for business class flyers or if if it'll be the same line as the coach class flyers?


  • Heathrow-Tunisia via Roma
    Apr 25, 2016
    i booked a connecting flight from Heathrow to Tunisia via Rome with 1 hour 15min connection would it be enough time from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1? is it walking distance or shelter bus ? as i got two small kids with me .


    It's walking distance. Are both flights Alitalia? If so it should be just enough time as long as the first flight is on-time.


  • Enough time?
    Apr 24, 2016
    Arriving at 7am on Alitalia coming from Athens, leaving at 8:30 on Vueling, no checked bags. Will 1.5 hrs be enough time for the connection?


    (traveling to Croatia if that makes a difference, also have an EU passport)


    That should just be enough time assuming your Alitalia flight is on-time.


  • 2 hr 14 minutes enough time?
    Apr 24, 2016
    Our United flight arrives Terminal 3 at 7:45am. Our Alitalia connecting flight leaves Terminal 1 at 10:00am Can we walk between terminals? Is this enough time? We will have carry on only Enough time?


    Yes, you can walk between terminals. Yes, I think with carry-on only that is enough time as long as your United flight is on-time.


  • is there enough time
    Apr 23, 2016
    Arrive FCO via Air Canada connecting to Alitalia to Catania . 1hr15min between flights . have checked bags . Enough time ??


    On Two separate reservations that is not enough time. On the same reservation that is barely enough time.


  • Layover time
    Apr 22, 2016
    I have one hour between arriving in FCO from USA on United and connection to Tel Aviv on Alitalia. Is that enough time for international connection ?


    On two separate reservations, no, that is not enough time.


  • BCN-FCO (vueling) & FCO-AUH (etihad) with 2 hrs layover
    May 6, 2016
    Hello everyone, Im travelling from barcelona to rome tomorrow. Vueling flighg arriving 8:05pm in T3. Then I have to connect to my ETIHAD flight to abu dhabi in the same terminal 3. Flight is departing at 10:00pm but I have to check in at 9pm. That leaves me with 55 mins to take my luggage from my vueling flight and drop it in etihad counter. Im not familiar with the airport, do you think that it will be enough time?


    It's not impossible but It depends on everything going perfectly.


    Arriving in FCO at 7:45AM on United. Have a separate ticketed flight at 12:00 noon with Vueling. I will have a checked bag. Do I have enough time? Is it easy to navigate from customs to Vueling counter to recheck bag? First time flying internationally.


  • Coming from SFO then need to take Domestic flight to Venice

    Hi there, I land at 4:30pm from a Air France flight, would I have enough time to make a Alitalia flight to Venice at 5:45pm? Im afraid this might be cutting it too close but don't know what the terminals look like.


    Correction. I land at 4:20pm.

    You will actually arrive in Terminal 2. Yes, that should be enough time.
