Flying on two separate reservations. Time needed between flights to clear customs and reboard
With checked bags I'd want at least 2.5 hours.
Thanks, the potential reservations are 3+ hours so Ii should be OK. On the return we fly from Catania to Rome and then change to American back to ORD. Since we don't have to go thru customs but still have checked bags, is 2 hrs enough or do I need 3?
I would want 3 since you have to take a shuttle bus to Terminal 5 to re-check your bags with American and you will have to go through Schengen Exit Passport control and security on the way to your flight.
Looking to book a flight from Malaga to Split with Alitalia. Outbound it is a 2 hour connection at FCO, it is on the same reservation but the flight is operated by Croatia Air - will my bags be checked through so I can just go to the gate & is it enough time? Inbound I have 16hrs will my luggage still be checked through? I want to book into a hotel for the night & just take my hand luggage with me.
You will have to go through Schengen Exit passport control on your way to Split. On the return if the layover is overnight you will probably have to claim your bags in Rome and re-check them the next morning.
We are flying in from Athens on Aegean landing at 16:40 and have a flight to Venice on Alitalia at 17:45. We will have checked bags. Do we have to leave security or is this possible to make it in this amount of time?
Are your flights on one reservation or two separate reservations? With checked bags and two separate reservations this is not enough time.
Arriving on Alitalia from Catania at 8:45 AM connecting to a flight on Alitalia to JFK at 10:35 AM. Same ticket checking baggage in CTA. The flight is sold by Delta, operated by Alitalia. I assume arriving T1 departing T3. Do I go through security at FCO, will I make the connection?
You will go through Schengen Exit Passport control in Rome. You have enough time.
We will be flying into FCO from Malta on Alitalia, arriving at at Terminal 1 at 2:00PM. Want to connect to a British Airways flight going out of Terminal 3 at 3:15. We will have carry on baggage. Will we have enough time to make the connection. US Citizens.
That is barely enough time if you check in for your British Airways flight online before leaving Malta.
I will be flying from Palermo to FCO with a layover of 1.5 hours. It looks like that flight lands in Terminal 1. I then have a flight with American Airlines that leaves from Terminal 5. The two tickets are connected. From what I understand I don't have to go to terminal 5 since the tickets are connected and instead can go to the actual gate (likely in terminal 3)... is this correct? Do I have enough time to make my flight? Any advice is greatly appreciated!
