  • Transfer Terminal 3 to terminal 1 for my daughter
    Jan 21, 2016
    My 16 year old daughter is travelling with her school in Rome for March 2016. The school will be leaving Rome from Terminal 3, but my daughter needs to leave from Terminal 1 to meet us at another destination. Can she clear security with her school at Terminal 3 and then transfer to Terminal 1 without exiting the secured area of the Airport ? And how long would it take to transfer ? Thanks (can't figure this out looking at airport maps)


    Where is she flying from? What airlines is she flying? Are her two tickets on two separate reservations? Does she have checked bags?


    She's departing Rome and wants to wait with her school in Terminal 3 until they leave. Her flight leaves a couple hours later from Terminal 1. No checked bags. Thanks.


    She won't be able to go through the Schengen Exit passport control area of the airport where her classmates will be waiting without a ticket leaving the Schengen Area.


    She has two tickets and boarding passes - one returning with her school and another to board terminal 1. So she can enter Terminal 3 with them. Thanks


    Immigration might give her a hard time as she will have already exited the Schengen Area and will be Re-entering it to go to your gate. It's not illegal per se, but it's definitely possible they will be suspicious.


    So she will need to exit Terminal 3 and re-enter Terminal 1 security again. Any idea how long that might take ? Thanks

    Arriving Air Canada from Toronto 08.30am in FCO and need to fly to Pisa. Would a flight at 10.10am to Pisa be OK? Thanks


    No, I'd want another hour.


  • Enough time?

    I'll be arriving at FCO from Atlanta on Delta Airlines at 7:30am on June 11th. I'm planning to book a flight at 10:10am on Alitalia to Venice. Have I allotted enough time to get through customs .. pick up my bags and re-check my luggage to VCE?


    That should be enough time.

    I am flying from the US to FCO via Munich. Arriving into Terminal 3 on Lufthansa. I need to connect to a domestic flight to Naples. I have not bought the ticket as yet, and am wondering how much time will be sufficient for a transfer in FCO? I assume I will have to collect baggage at FCO and recheck it? Thanks.


    Yes, if you purchase two separate tickets you will have to collect your bags from Lufthansa, take it to T1, and re-check it, then go through security. I'd want at least 90 minutes, preferably 2 hours.


  • Arriving Alitalia from Israel Need to connect to flight to Florence
    Jan 17, 2016
    Is 2 hours enough to get to the right terminal and place if I arrive on an Alitalia flight from Israel to Rome terminal 3 and then catch another flight from Rome to Florence terminal 1?


    That should be enough time.


  • Arriving Terminal 3 leaving Terminal 1
    Jan 17, 2016
    Hi I'm flying in from Croatia to terminal 3 at 1.15 and fly out to Palermo at 2.55 from terminal 1. I s this enough time?


    If both flights are on Alitalia that should be enough time.


  • Arriving on T1 to T1 Rome to Naples will 1 hr be enough?
    Jan 13, 2016
    I only have 1 hr layoever, only carry ons.


    If both flights are within Schengen it should be enough time.


  • Connecting from FCO Term 3 to Term 1 flight to Palermo
    Jan 10, 2016
    I am arriving from Canada (Toronto) on an August flight that arrives at 8.30 am at FCO Term 3. I want to catch a flight from FCO to Palermo from Term 1. I am considering two options: Alitalia flight leaving at 11.10am or flight leaving at 12.20pm to Palermo. First flight gives me 2hr40 min betw flights and 2nd flight gives me 3hr50 min. I will have to clear customers, pick up luggage, transfer terminals and then check in luggage for Palermo flight and go through security. Do both options give me enough time or should i take longer option. I've flown thru Rome many times but never on this connection. Thanks for your thoughts. David A.


    You could probably make either, although I personally would probably book the later one.


  • International Arrival and domestic connection via 2 different airlines
    Jan 10, 2016
    Arriving on Saturday at 10:00 from Canada with Air Transat. Departing Rome for Venice via Air Alitalia at 1430. Will there be sufficient time if Canadian flight is not delayed


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

    We are arriving on Vueling at 11.00am and departing on Ryanair at 12.40pm. Will that be sufficient time to go through customs? Are they at different terminals? Thanks!


    Where are you flying Vueling from? Where are you flying to? Do you have checked baggage (aka hold luggage)?


    We are flying Vueling from Mykonos and Ryanair to Barcelona. No checked luggage. Thanks!


    You do not have to go through customs, Greece, Italy, and Spain are all in the Schengen Area. If you are already checked in for your Ryanair flight you can go directly to your Ryanair departure gate.

    Jan 9, 2016

    Just follow the signs to your departure gate.

    I am arriving on a KLM flight at 19:35 and connecting on an Emirates flight at 22:05. Will I hjave enough time?


    With checked baggage I think that's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • T1 to T3
    Jan 6, 2016
    Il will be arriving at FCO T1 on Saturday 20:20 on Alitalia flight 165 from Brussels and will have to take flight 680 to Buenos Aires in T3 at 21:35. Is it correct that I will just have to go through passport control and not through security ? How long/short of a walk is it from T1 to T3 ?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go through Schengen exit passport control.

    I am arriving on CZ645 in Rome at 7.15am on June 25th 2016, I will need to collect luggage and clear customs and am booked on flight JU531 leaving terminal 1 at 9.25am. WIll I have enough time for the transfer?


    That will be quite difficult. Both flights should actually be in Terminal 3.


  • Is 3 hrs enough time in between flights
    Jan 17, 2016
    Hi, on Saturday 11/6/16 I will arriving at FCO (from Croatia) on Iberia (operated by Vueling) in terminal 1 at 4pm. I then have a flight with Alitalia to Milan leaving from Terminal 3 at 7pm. I will have to collect my luggage and clear customs so can anyone advise if 3 hrs is enough time to do that and get to Terminal 3 for my next flight?


    Vueling arrives in Terminal 3. 3 hours should be enough time.


    thanks, my mistake I am arriving in terminal 3 and departing to Milan from terminal 1 at 7pm. Can you please confirm if I will have to collect my bags and clear customs?


    Also I am an Australian Citizen and from what I can gather I do not require a Visa or a Schengen Visa, is that correct?
