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?
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!
Hi. I have a flight on Emirates from Dubai arriving Terminal 3 at 13:25 with checked bags. I have a flight on a seperate ticket with Meridiana to Olbia leaving Terminal 3 at 15:45. Will I make this connection? Thank you!
With checked bags that's just enough time.
Thank you.
I'm flying in from US to Rome FCO on 9/9/16. I am going to Monterosso & instead of taking train all the way I would like to fly to Florence & take the train from there. My flight gets in from US around 9:05 AM & flight with Al Italia leaves @ 10:25. I'm assuming Al Italia is in another terminal. Will I have enough time to collect baggage & get to my flight in time. I want to use air miles so I don't want to book unless I'm sure I can make it!
That would be very difficult on two separate reservations.
Hi, I'm travelling from Cairo to Rio De Janeiro via Rome. I'm flying alitalia from cairo to rome and I'll be landing in terminal1, and I'll have 1 hour and 45 minutes to catch my connection from terminal 3, both flights are alitalia and on the same tickets, and I have an egyptian passport, so will I need a transit visa, and do I have enough time to catch my connection? thanks
Your flight from Cairo will arrive in Terminal 3. All you have to do is go through security and walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Since you did not post your citizenship I will assume you are Egyptian. Egyptian citizens do not require a transit visa for an airside transit in the Schengen Area (which this is). You should have enough time.
Thank you so much
sorry, another question, I noticed that on my return from Rio I'll be landing in terminal 3, and my connection to Cairo will be at terminal 1 this time, so will it be the same and I won't need transit visa since I'll be going to another terminal. Thanks
That's also incorrect, the Cairo flight should depart from Terminal 3.
Delta DTW-FCO, arriving at 09:15 at T3 connecting to Vueling FCO-JMK at 10:40 at T5. Carry-on baggage only, separate itineraries. Is 1hr and 25mins enough time? I know that's rush hour!
I don't think you'll make that flight. You will have to go through customs and immigration, then walk to Terminal 5, check your bags in with Vueling, and go through security. You will not make this flight.
Vueling does not use Terminal 5. They use Terminal 3. However, I still think that's not reasonably enough time.
i just booked my cousins ticket from India to aboo dabby to Rome to JFK ( final destination). She has a green card ( US ) and Indian passport. There's far too less time now ( leaving tomorrow ) to get a schenzen visa. She'd be arriving I think in terminal 1 and leaving of terminal 5. With a green card and a onward ticket to JFK , does she still need a Schenzen visa ? is she going to have difficulties . For those 4 hrs , she'll be @ the airport but she has to change terminals ( T1 or T3 to T 5 ) . Abs no interest in leaving outside.
Since she holds a valid US Visa she doesn't need a Schengen Transit Visa.
Thanks Zap for that Zap reply
We are arriving from Malta on Alitalia 0887 at 1:35 Terminal 1 then to JFK on Alitalia 0610 at 2:45 Terminal 3. Is this connection possible?
It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
