We are arriving 12:10 p.m. into Terminal 5, FCO (Terminal 5) via United, We have to meet with our friends who are arriving 4:15 pm into FCO (Terminal 3), via British Airways - about 4 hrs later.. What is the best way to go from Terminal 5 to the Baggage arrivals section of Terminal 3 ? We have 3 pieces of luggage & would like to wait preferably near an airport restaurant. Do we need to go through security again? Thanks.
YOu do not arrive in Terminal 5. You arrive in Terminal 3. You both arrive in Terminal 3. Meet at the meeting point in Terminal 3.
I am flying in a few days to Madrid so I am changing my plane in Rome, FCO. I am arriving in Terminal 1 from a Shengen area country and I need to go Terminal 3 to catch my flight. Time between flights is 55 minutes. Do I have enough time? Which is the fastest way for me to get from T1 to T3 and how to I proceed?
We are flying in on Delta arriving from Minneapolis@10:20 meeting friends who are arriving from Chicago on United at 10:30 .we are meeting a driver to take us to hotel .will we be going through customs and immigration at the same place?
Terminal 3 and Terminal 5?
No flights arrive in Terminal 5. Both of you will arrive in Terminal 3.
On Dec. 1 I have a ticket TLV-FCO on Alitalia with a 1:15 layover and continuation to JFK on Delta. Same ticket. Enough time?
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Once I land in Rome from the US at Terminal 3, I connect to Terminal 1 to Pisa. Do I have to go through security?
I believe you will.
arrive American Wed 8/31 about 9AM. Have separate Air Italia ticket Rome to Florence about 10:30 AM. Carry on luggage only. 1)so I need to go through immigration/customs and 2) can I make the connection?
With no checked bags that is barely enough time. Check in for your Alitalia flight online before you leave the US.
HI we are taking the train from Florence arriving in FCO around 9.52am. Our international flight to Asia leaves at 12noon and leaves from T3. Would 2 hours suffice in the airport?
Are yoi sure it arrives directly at the airport. Usually speed trains arrive t Termini station. If you have 2 hourd that should be enough at the airport. just check your terminal.
Hi yes there's a direct from Florence to Roma Aeroporto. I have been told to allow 3 hours due to security checks in FCO. So I just wanted to confirm. Thanks.
I am flaying to fco from atlanta and i have connection alitalia flight to egypt !
Do i have enough time ! And should i go through the immigration ??
No immigration. just pass through transit. do NOT follow others or you will find yourself at immigration.
I am arriving rome from atlanta usa next tusday and i only have 1:55 min to change plane to get the next plane to egypt !!
Do i have enough time to change planes and also i have to go through the check point ??
Arriving from Madrid on Sat Sept 24 at 13:55 (terminal unknown)
Departing for Tel Aviv 50 minutes later (terminal unknown)
No checked bags. Both flights via Alitalia (and suggested by their website).

Is this enough time to get from arrival gate to departure gate (i.e. no going through security or customs)?
Looks like both are Terminal 1... so I'm assuming should be ok?
Hi!
I'll be arriving from Santiago de Chile to Terminal 3 at 7:00 AM, and have an onward Air France flight to Paris-CDG from Terminal 1 at 10:20 AM. The flights are NOT on the same itinerary. Will I have enough time? Since both airlines are SkyTeam, will it be possible to check the bag through to CDG when checking in in SCL?
Sorry, forgot to point out that the SCL-FCO flight is Alitalia. :)
Yes, that should be enough time. You will have to show your Air France confirmation to the Alitalia agent in Santiago. They are not obligated to check your bag through but are able to.
Thank you very much!
