  • 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

    Yes, that should be enough time. Since Spain and Italy are both in Schengen there will be no passport controls.


  • 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.


  • Malta-FCO-Budapest
    Feb 10, 2016
    Hello, aid please :) According plan flight we will arrive from Malta to FCO 14:10hod Alitalia airlines to terminal 1 and we have only 50minutes to transfer the 2nd flight with Alitalia on the same Terminal 1 to Budapest- 15:00 departures. Is enough time to transit?


    Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.


  • 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.


  • Do we manually transfer luggage?
    Feb 9, 2016
    Traveling from London heathrow to rome and then again British airways connecting flight (vueling)to Catania. Do we have to transfer own luggage at Rome? How do I find out?


    If both tickets are on the same reservation you won't have to do anything with your bags in Rome. Just go through Schengen passport control and to your departure gate.


  • Tranist 1H 5M
    Feb 9, 2016
    I have a ticket from cairo to FCO and from FCO to Paris airport CDG i only have 1H 5M transit at FCO, my flights are all Alitalia, i arrive at Terminal 1 and the flight to paris is at terminal 3, will i make it?


    You have your terminals backwards - you will arrive in 3 and depart from 1. That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    How much percentage does everything usually goes smootly like 90% of the times? and do i have to worry about my luggage not making it with me?


    I can't predict that. Alitalia is not known for their punctuality.


  • Connection time
    Feb 10, 2016
    Hello everybody I have a question. I arrive to Roma Fiumicino at 20:15 from Pisa airport at TERMINAL 1 and than i have the connection at the same TERMINAL 1 to Amsterdam at 21:00. Its one ticket, and companies are Alitalia and KLM. Do i have enough time to catch the plane to amsterdam. Note i have only a backpack no lougage. Thank you


    That should be enough time if the flight from Pisa is on-time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank a lot, this reasures me. Let's hope the flight from Pisa its on time, which i fear nowing the tendency of delay of italian affairs. Ciao


    One more question please, so does that mean that there is no airport control once i arrive in Roma Fumicino TERMINAL 1 from Pisa?


    Correct, there will be no border controls on your trip since Italy and the Netherlands are both in the Schengen area


    Thank you a lot for the info my man or woman. You have a good day!


  • T3 to T2
    Mar 14, 2016
    reaching on AZ825 Terminal 3 at 19:20 , have to collect Luggage and recheck in through Terminal 2 for Wizz Air departing at 20:40 Is this enough time to change terminal , and then in and out through passport control and customs . would appreciate your remarks and suggestions Thanks


    No, I don't think that's enough time.


    How much time is needed as minimum ? Which is the Walking minutes from T3 to T2 ? Thanks


    The terminals are very close together. The issue is clearing passport control, claiming your bags, re-checking your bags with Wizz, and then going through schengen exit passport control and security. I'd want at least 3 hours to do all that.


    My Return Flight on APRIL 29th, reaching FCO Terminal 2 at 19:10 to take same day flight AZ826 departure 21:45 out of Terminal 3 . Please inform if this is enough !


  • Would I have enough time ?
    Feb 8, 2016
    I planned to fly from Geneva to NYC through Roma, all Alitalia. I got proposed a flight with only 1hr between the landing at terminal 1 FCO, and the take off at terminal 3 FCO. Would I have enough time to make the connection ?


    It's possible but doesn't leave much time to spare.


    I won't ! Thanks a lot. There's a shuttle between the terminals right ?


  • do we have enough time?
    Feb 5, 2016
    on 9/22 my wife and i are scheduled to arrive FCO from Alghero airport at 8:20 am and we have connections at FCO to the US on United at 9:55am. Enough time, or time to rebook?


    On two separate reservations with checked bags, no, that isn't enough time.


  • arriving and departing T1
    Feb 5, 2016
    i will be arriving at FCO from Genoa and then boarding an immediate flight to Naples, all Alitalia. What is the procedure and how long will it take. I have around 1 hour from scheduled arrival to take-off.


    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.
