    if flight is due to arrive from Mykonos at FCO (vueling) at 9:10 am is there enough time to catch a 11:25 am flight (Aer Lingus) to chicago


    Without checked bags, that's possible, with checked bags it'll be a bit difficult.


  • Airfrance to Alitalia urgent help
    Feb 19, 2016
    Hello, we are about to book a single ticket flight Airfrance from paris landing at rome at 09:20 and connect to 10:10 alitalia flight. -Is it enough? 50 min for connection? -Is there any procedure that we have to do about the luggages? Will they transferred by air france? Thank you in advance Burak


    If both tickets are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your baggage. Where are you flying to on Alitalia?


    I m flying to Istanbul.. thank you for your response waiting for further comments

    I'm arriving on alitalia flight from VCE, and then i have 1h30min to take an alitalia flight to SCL. Will that be enough time? Both flights are on the same tickets, and the bags will be checket to the final destination.


    That should be enough time.


  • Easyjet to Ryanair
    Feb 17, 2016
    How long should I allow to make a transfer between Easyjet arrival from (GVA) to Ryanair departure (PMO)?


    With checked bags I'd want 2 hours. Without checked bags 60-90 minutes should be enough.


  • Etihad to Alitalia to Naples
    Feb 16, 2016
    I neglected to say we are travelling Business Class on Etihad


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Arr: Etihad at 1.10 pm connecting to Alitalia Flight At 2.30???
    Feb 16, 2016
    Will I make it!


  • connection time
    Feb 15, 2016
    I am arriving at FCO at 7:45 am from Newark and want to book a flight to Naples at 10am. I guess we will need to arrive at the gate at 9am. Is this enough time?


    SORRY - I forgot to add they will be on separate tickets


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Tight Terminal 3 Connection
    Feb 15, 2016
    I arrive at 8:40AM on Friday from Israel on Alitalia - Terminal 3 -and am trying to catch a 9:30 Allitalia flight to Chicago also from Terminal 3. Is that enough time?


    It's possible, but difficult. Pack an extra set of clothing to be prepared to spend the night in Rome if you miss your connection.


  • Connecting flight (international - Belgrade - Rome - Tokyo)
    Feb 14, 2016
    Hello, I will be arriving at Terminal 3 from Belgrade, Serbia at 13:40 and will be departing from Terminal 3 to Tokyo, Japan at 15:20. I have 1 hour and 40 minutes from one to another. Is it enough? What is the procedure? As far as I know I will have to go through Passport Control and security check, is that right?. My baggage should be checked in at the Belgrade airport for Tokyo, so I suppose I won't have to go and pick it up and check it in again. How big is the distance between arrivals and departures at T3? Anyone with the similar experience? Thank you in advance for answering.


    Since Serbia is not in the Schengen area and you are not entering the Schengen Area you should not have to go through Passport control in rome. YOu just have to go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


  • Is this enough time to make a connecting flight?
    Feb 14, 2016
    Looking to book a ticket on American - but the connections seem tight: arriving from JFK at 7:35 am into FCO, departing FCO at 8:50 am to Vienna, arriving Vienna at 10:25 am - departing at 11:25 am to Greece. Are those connections too tight? My bags will be checked through to my final destination. Thank you!


    I think that initial connection at FCO would be difficult.

    I fly from Abu Dhabi on Alitalia operated by ETIHAD and arrive in Terminal 3 in Rome. I have 1hr55m to get to Terminal one to fly out to Barcelona on Alitalia. Is that enough time? Same as coming back from Barcelona, I have 1h50m to travel from terminal 1 to terminal 3 in Rome going back to Abu Dhabi. Thank you for easing my mind.


    That should be just enough time.


    Thank you

  • From Doha - Connect Cagliari
    Feb 11, 2016
    Hi, will be landing in FCO terminal 3 from Doha on 1.25. Connecting on a flight to Cagliari on Alitalia. Will I have enough time? Also, not sure if i cant check my bags through to Cagliari. If I can manage to check it through, will I be able to clear customs in Cagliari or will I need to clear in FOC and re-check in as the next flight is a domestic flight. Thanks


    Sorrywasnt clear, landing in rome 1.25pm connectin at 3.05 pm


    You will go through Schengen Passport control in Rome. If your bags are not tagged through to Cagliari you will have to claim them in T3, clear customs, bring them to T1 and re-check them with Alitalia. I think this will be a difficult connection


    Hi thanks for the info. If I manage to tag the bags till cagliari, is that an option though. Seeing as the last leg is a domestic, wouldn't I have no choice but to go through customs in Rome. I would land in the domestic side (no customs) part of Cagliari right?


    Passport control and customs are two separate things. At most European airports you don't even notice when you go through customs since they usually pre-inspect bags before putting them on the belt.


    Thanks for the info! Found another flight landing at 12.30 followed by the 15.05 alitalia flight. This should be enough to get bags and re-check in right? Please advise.

  • Time between flight Rome-Beijing
    Feb 9, 2016
    Arrival at FCO at 18:45 from Lisbon in Terminal 3 and departure to Beijing at 20:55 in Terminal 3. Could you confirm if 2 hours gap is enough for all procedures to take Beijing flight? Luggage is expected to be checked in Lisbon to final destination.


    You don't have to ask the same question twice.
