  • Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 via Alitalia
    Mar 3, 2016
    I arrive at terminal 3 and have one hour to transfer to terminal 1. Alitalia from Tirana to Rome. Same ticket. Is that enough time?


    It will be difficult. Where are you flying into Rome from?




  • Connecting from UAL non-stop to Iberia/Vueling flight to Santorini
    Feb 28, 2016
    Arriving at 10:30 a.m. on non-stop United flight from United States. Want to connect with an Iberia/Vueling flight departing at 12:15. We will not have any checked bags. Is that enough time to make the connecting flight?


    WIthout checked bags I think you can make it. Check in online for your Vueling flight before you leave the US.


  • Terminal 1 & 5 connection
    Feb 28, 2016
    Hello. our flight arrives at Terminal 1 at FCO airport - if everything goes well at 9am. (Alitalia flight) Our next flight (which we booked separately and we travel with claimed luggage) leaves at 12am from Terminal 5 Do you think we can make it?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • air canada May 1st connecting time ?
    Feb 29, 2016
    flying ACA in from YYZ to T3 May 1st 2016. arriving 8:30 am. flying to SUF Lemezia on Alitalia. they have departure time at 9:50 local time. Can I get bags etc and make this flight ? or should I wait for the 2:40 pm departure to be safe? I want to ensure the booked flight is a realistic choice . I was just going to book the 2nd leg and thought i would ask ...thanks


    With two separate reservations, I think you'd have to go with the 2:40 flight.


    thank you . what if you have a nexus or go card? would that help? ideally would like to meet that earlier flight. if not what do you recommend for the 4 hours? thanks again zap


    A Nexus card means jack squat in Europe


    thanks for your helpZAP . understand.


  • Connect to Olbia
    Feb 27, 2016
    Can I connect from a London easyJet flight arriving 12.35 into FCO Terminal 3, collect bags, then check in to a Meridiana flight for Olbia departing 14:10 from the same Terminal?


    Actually it departs at 14:35 to Olbia so there is 2 hours presuming flights on time.


    That should be just about enough time.


  • Rome Trieste connection time
    Feb 26, 2016
    Can I arrive at Terminal 5 American Airlines at 7:35am and have enough time to take a separately booked Alitalia flight to Trieste leaving at 9:20 am? How do I get to terminal 1?


    No flights arrive in Terminal 5. It is a departure only terminal. You will arrive in Terminal 3. with checked baggage this will be a difficult connection because you will have to claim your bags from American and re-check them with Alitalia.


  • Transferring between terminals
    Feb 27, 2016
    I am arriving on an Alitalia flight in Terminal 1 from Toulouse to FCO at 2025 and departing from Terminal 3 to Abu Dhabi at 2200. My ticket is a single one through Etihad and my luggage will be sent through to Sydney. Is 1 hour 30 minutes enough time to transfer between terminals?


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


    Thank you for your response. I have a single ticket with Etihad from Toulouse to Sydney. Would I go through security and be able to check my bag right through to Sydney at Toulouse?


  • FCO 1hr 5min transfer enough time?
    Feb 26, 2016
    Flying from SFO>AMS>FCO>PMO, same reservation. 1hr5min connection in FCO to catch flight to PMO arriving and departing Alitalia, terminal 1. Is this enough time?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. Since you will have already entered the Schengen Area in Amsterdam, all you have to do in Rome is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Athens to Malta
    Feb 26, 2016
    I am arriving in T1 from Athens with Alitalia and leaving from T3 with AirMalta after 2,30 hours. Is this enough time for the connection even if i have to collect luggage and re-check them? Thanks in advance.


    Yes, that should be fine if your flight from Athens is on-time. Since Greece, Italy, and Malta are all in the Schengen Area you won't have to worry about any passport controls.


    Thank you.


  • T3 to T1. Carry on only
    Feb 25, 2016
    Arriving FCO T3 on UA from DC on may 14 at 8:10 AM. I leave for Alghero on Alitalia from T1 at 9:30 AM carry on luggage only. Can I walk within the security from T3 to T1 or do I have to go through security again? Will the passport/ immigration check be at a "smaller checkpoint" or do I have to go thru the main control,that leads outside of security area? Do I need an actual boarding pass to get into the TI area? Can I use my iPhone for the boarding pass? Do you think It's possible?!


    With carry-on only I think you can make this. There is a checkpoint you can use when connecting from T3 to T1. I don't think Alitalia has mobile boarding pass but you should be able to check in online and print one out before you go. if you can't there should be an Alitalia transfer desk where you can get your boarding pass in T3.


    I have the same situation in September. Can I check my bag all the way through to Alghero? Or, is there a limit to the size of a carry-on bag on Alatalia to Alghero? Thanks.


    If you purchased two separate tickets then you cannot check your bag through to Alghero. Rome->Alghero flights are operated by Airbus A320 aircraft, so the overhead bins would be the same size as most normal domestic flights in the US.


  • Rome to America
    Feb 23, 2016
    Couldn't find my old post but Traveling from Pisa to Rome with Alitalia and Rome to America with American Airlines. Will I need to recheck my bag once I arrive in Rome? Will I need to go through customs? How long does this process normally take? Will I change terminals? Is 3 hours enough time?


    I bought them at the same time, is that what reservation means?


    Yes, that is what reservation means. You should not have to re-check your bag in Rome. you will arrive in Terminal 1 and depart from Terminal 3. You will just go through Schengen Exit passport control and to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.


    Thank you so much!!!! This was so helpful!!!!


  • Italy flight connection
    Feb 22, 2016
    I fly into Rome from Pisa and switch airlines in Rome to go to America. Do I have to recheck my bag if I switch airlines? Will I be in the same area to do this? How long does this process normally take? Will I go through customs?


    Are your tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations? What airlines are you flying? I can't answer your question without this information.


  • Connecting from domestic to international
    Feb 20, 2016
    Can I arrive at FCO from Palermo on Aliltalia at 8:00am on a Friday morning and have enough time to catch a Delta international flight to Atlanta at 9:15am (1hr 15minutes)?


    I should mention that thw Alitalia flight is a Delta code-share and baggage is supposedly checked through to Atlanta.


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


  • Transfer time
    Feb 20, 2016
    I am arriving at Terminal 3 from Australia via Dubai on Emirates at 13:25. I want to catch a flight from Terminal 1 to Cagliari at 15:05. One ticket with bags checked through. Is this possible allowing for passport control and security? Thanks.


    Yes, I think that's probably possible.


  • Cathay/Ryanair connection time
    Feb 19, 2016
    I am arriving on Cathay Pacific at 0635 and depart Ryanair for Palermo at 0835. I will only have carry on luggage, no need for luggage collection. Will this time be sufficient? Thank you for your help.


    Yes, with no checked bags I think that will be enough time.
