  • 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!!!!

    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.

    I am flying into Rome in September with AA from US. My flight arrives @ 9:05AM. I need to collect my luggage go through customs etc & then catch a flight to Malta with Air Malta @ 11AM. Will this be in the same terminal, do I have enough time to catch this flight. Not sure how much time I will need & how long it will take to get luggage.


    That should be barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Is air Malta in the same terminal of American;


    You will arrive in the non-Schengen portion of Terminal 3 and depart from the Schengen portion of Terminal 3.


  • change terminals, before security
    Feb 18, 2016
    My family is departing from Terminal 1 (FCO) while I am departing from Terminal 3 (FCO). Would I be able to walk from terminal 1 to terminal 3? How long it will take? I am trying to choose which flight will suit me depending on how long it will take me to go from one terminal to another.


    Yes, you can walk from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 in less than 15 minutes but you cannot go into the non-schengen part of Terminal 3 without a boarding pass for a flight leaving Schengen.

    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

    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 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.
