    Mar 12, 2017
    I arrive in FCO from tel-aviv ( with alitalia) terminal 3 on 7.55pm connecting to amsterdam ( with alitalia) at 9 pm termunal 1 what is the quiqest way to move the terminales. thank you


    You just follow the signs to your departure gate. You will go through Schengen Entry passport control on your way. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • AA connecting to Vueling with 1:
    Mar 12, 2017
    Our American flight arrives Terminal 3 at 8:25am. Our Veuling #8103 is a connecting flight that leaves Terminal 3 at 9:50am. Separate PNRs, Carry-on luggage only. Can we walk between terminals? Is this enough time? I realize now how bad this planning was.


    As to the above question regarding American flight transmitting to Vueling flight at FCO. I am a UK citizen. If i get my boarding pass does that help? Thank you very much.


    You should just have to go through Schengen Entry passport control and go to your departure gate. You should have enough time. Getting your boarding pass ahead of time certainly will help.


  • BCN by Vueling to FCO connect to Etihad to Abu Dhabi
    Mar 10, 2017
    I arrive in FCO at 8pm from Barcelona on Vueling. Connecting to Abu Dhabi flight on Etihad at 10 pm. Separate tickets. If I have carry on can I transfer in the transfer lane? How?


    Yes, if you only have carry-ons you can go straight to the Etihad transfer desk, through Schengen Exit passport control, and to your departure gate and that should be enough time.

    I am booking 2 separate tickets with 2 different airlines. coming from Cai on Alitalia arriving terminal 3 at 7am and them taking the next flight from terminal 3 on Norwegian airlines to Sweden at 8:55. we only have carry-on luggage. would 1:55hr be enough? we hold Australian passport.

    I think that will be very difficult if not impossible.


  • T1-T3 Connection
    Mar 8, 2017
    Arriving from Barcelona on Alitalia in T1, then 2 hour connection time to T3 to Los Angeles also on Alitalia, 1 ticket. Heard some hell stories about FCO and wanna be sure.


    That should be enough time.


  • 2 hours 15min FCO layover en route to NYC from Dubai
    Mar 5, 2017
    Expecting to fly Emirates from Dubai to FCO, and American Airlines FCO to NYC. Might not be able to check luggage all the way through. Is 2hr 15min enough time to get through customs, claim luggage, and check in for FCO>NYC, please? Appreciate the help!


    That would be very difficult.


    Many thanks - will rework our itinerary!


  • 2hours 10 minutes
    Mar 5, 2017
    Arriving from Toronto on aircanada and continuing to Greece on vueling with 2 hours 10 minutes. Enough time?


    with checked bags that will be fairly difficult if it's two separate reservations.


  • Rome to Malta
    Mar 5, 2017
    I arrive 815 am from US (Terminal 3 I think) and want to connect to Air Malta flight at 1020. Is there time for immigration, luggage collection, re check-in and security to make this flight if check in closes 45 min prior to the flight?


    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Transferring Etihad to Alitalia
    Mar 5, 2017
    We are arriving on Etihad flight from Abo Dhabi at 13.10 at FCO and need to transfer to Alitalia flight to Palermo departing at 14.55. Flights booked on separate tickets with each airline. Is there enough time to catch the second flight?


    With checked bags that would be very difficult if you can't get etihad to check your bags through to Palermo.


  • Connection from T1 to T5 at FCO Rome airport
    Mar 5, 2017
    We are flying from Alghero on AlItialia to FCO and arrive At 7:50 at T 1 . It is on a separate itinerary ticket from our Delta flight to Atlanta which departs at 9:45 . I would appreciate any help to see if 1:55 is enough time and how do we get to our boarding gate to US. If we have to go to Terminal 5 From T1, what is the best way to make that connection. ? Are there any other options for security check in to USA Thanks for any information Our flight with Delta which departs to Atlanta


    Delta now uses Terminal 1 for check in in Rome. You have enough time.


  • How much time is enough for this connection?
    Mar 5, 2017
    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.


  • Arrive 7:10pm (Alitalia) T1, Transfer to Air China 8:55 pm T3 Beijing
    Mar 4, 2017
    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.


    Mar 3, 2017
    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.


  • I land at T3 on PC535 13.15 andI I hope to getAZ 1575 at T1 at 15.15
    Mar 2, 2017
    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.


  • Will I make my connecting flight?
    Feb 28, 2017
    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!
