  • Passport Control & Transfer Times

    US citizen arriving FCO on United direct flight from Dulles on a Saturday morning at 8am, has separate ticket on Alitalia flight to Venice at 10:10am with NO checked luggage to collect. United says flight will arrive at Terminal 3, and I believe flight to VCE departs from Terminal 1. Will two hours be enough to get through passport control, then to "B" gates in Terminal 1?

     

    Yes, that should be. Check in for your Alitalia flight online before leaving the US.

    Arrive FCO 10:45am thursday. Want to pre-buy train ticket (via Termini) to Florence. How long will it take us to get thru customs and to the airport train station?

     

    I would not book a ticket departing Rome Airport before Noon, maybe 12:30.

    Arrving Rome on TAP from Lisbon at 125p, no checked bags and considering a 310p on Alitalia to Florence on separate ticket. Will need to clear immigrations in Rome as originating from USA. Is this enough time?

     

    Portugal and Italy are both in the Schengen Area. There are no border controls when passing between Portugal and Italy. Note however that TAP and Alitalia are in different terminals in Rome.

    Alitalia from Brindisi 8:10 am arrival must connect with United to Newark@9:55am, no luggage. Reasonable?

     

    With no luggage it's just possible if the flight from Brindisi is on-time.

    Hi, we are arriving in Rome at 12:35 pm from New York City and considering a flight to Venice they departs at 2:35pm. Is this enough time to clear customs, deal with our luggage and get to the gate?

     

    with checked bags, no I don't think that's enough time. There's lots of flights to Venice. Pick a later one.

    Arriving from US @ 9:45 departing to Cairo on a separate ticket around 2pm. 5 people with checked bags. Does it matter if the departing airline is Egyptair or Royal Jordanian? Do they both depart from T3? Do we need to exit and re-check our bags at the Airline's counter or is there a luggage transfer within T3?

     

    That is plenty of time. Yes, both depart from T3 and yes, with both you will have to claim your bags and then re-check them with the second airline at their check-in desk.

    Hi, I am flying to Rome from Philadelphia on AA. I have a non-connecting flight on Alitalia to Venice 3 hours after landing in Rome. Will that be enough time to get our luggage, go through customs, passport control & check in again ? What Terminals do I need to go to. Thanks for any information.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 1.

     

  • Catania to JFK

    Trying to figure out terminals, etc. My son will be travelling from Catania to Rome (Alitalia) connecting to JFK with KLM airlines. Is 2 hours enough time? It looks like they may both be on Terminal 1, but Alitalia also flies into terminal 3, so I didn't know if he had to change terminals. Please advise. (His trip over has a 5 hour layover in FCO, so that's not a problem.) Al.so, how early does he need to get to Catania airport before his flight. I'm not familiar with international travel. Thank you!

     

    If he is flying nonstop to JFK, that flight will also be on Alitalia. He will arrive in Terminal 1, go through Schengen Exit Passport control and walk to his departure gate in Terminal 3. He should try to get to the Catania airport 2 hours before his flight.

     

    Thanks. Will his layover in FCO of 2 hours give him enough time to go through Schengen Exit Passport and walk to Terminal 3?

     

    Yes, it should

     

    Thank you for your quick response! You were very helpful!

    transferring from Etihad 83 from Abu Dhabi arrives 1:10pm to make a connection to Alitalia 1395 to Genova leaves 2:20pm. Is there enough time to make the connection please?

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation that should be just enough time.

    Hi, we have AA flight into FCO from Dallas that lands at 7:10 am. We want to take an Alitalia (will not be on same ticket) leaving FCO for Lamezia Terme(SUF) at 9:25 am. We will have checked bags. Is this enough time? Thanks

     

    I personally wouldn't book that. I would want at least 3 hours.

    Hi. Flying ATH to JFK with 1:10 layover in FCO. One ticket reservation with Alitalia. Is layover time sufficient? Thank you

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You just have to go through Schengen Exit passport control and then to your departure gate.

    Flight from Tunis to Malta has a 1hr 50min connection in Rome. Tunis Air to Alitalia. What is the likelihood of making the connection?

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation you have a chance. If no, then it will be almost impossible.

  • Connection time okay, FCO to Dubrovnik?

    Arriving FCO from ATL on Delta, terminal 5, 7:55; Vueling flight to Dubrovnik at 10:00 from terminal 3. Carry-on baggage only. Can I make this connection?

     

    You do not arrive in Terminal 5. No flights arrive in Terminal 5. You arrive in Terminal 3. With carry-ons this should be easy as all you have to do is go to your departure gate and/or the Vueling transfer desk.
