Hello, I'll be flying into FCO from Catania on One of the budget airlines and then catching an Air Egypt flight to Bangkok. How much time do I need to make that switch? No checked baggage, only carry on. Thanks
I'd still want close to 3 hours.
Hello, am boarding the Alitalia airlines from Jordan, to be conneted to Alitalia that is headed to Chicago, is 2:30 hours enough time ? Any recommendations?
That should be enough time. You just have to go through security and to your departure gate.
I am flying into Rome on American with checked bags, then going on to Malta on a different carrier (Imhave not yet purchased the connecting ticket). The AA flight arrives at 9:40 a.m. How much time should I allow to get through passport control, get my bags, check in and go through security/passport to the gate. MAlso, is their one carrier for the Malta flight that would make this easier?
I would allow 3 hours. Flying Air Malta or Vueling will be easier than Alitalia or RyanAir because Air Malta and Vueling use the same terminal that you will arrive in.
I will arriving in Rome From Palermo Italy, and transferring to a Delta flight to Atlanta. Do I have to go through Terminal 5 or is there another way? Also If i checked a bag on Alitalia will they transfer it to the Delta flight Or will I have to claim it and recheck it? I have 2hr connection time, is this enough?
Are both tickets on the same reservation or are they on two separate reservations?
I arrive into FCO from Belgrade at 19:35. I have to self-transfer, so go through passport control, then go back through passport control, to get my next flight to London Heathrow at 21:50. Hand luggage only, UK passport. 2hrs 15. Do you think I'll make it? Thanks!
Yes, with hand luggage that should be enough time. Since you have no checked luggage and since both flights will be in Terminal 3 you can check in online or go to the transfer desk for your boarding pass to London without having to go through passport control.
Thank you!
I'm going to have a flight from Moscow to Rome and then in 1 hour 50 min from Rome to Los Angeles(both Alitalia). Will I have to get my baggage in Rome myself or it will be delivered to the final destination?
If I land at 5:20 pm, will I have enough time to get my checked bag and then make it to Terminal 2 for a 9:05 pm flight to Bari? I'm flying in from Germany so I think I land in Terminal 1.
Yes, that should be plenty of time.
I'm thinking about booking a flight from Catania to FCO on Alitalia airlines arriving at 7:35am. I have a direct flight on United departing for EWR at 9:55am. Do you think this will be enough time - I have checked baggage and a wheelchair.
You will arrive in Terminal 1. With a wheelchair I don't think that would be possible. It would be barely possible for a person who was able to run.
We are arriving at FCO at 7 am terminal 3 and then we have domestic flight at 9:25 am to brindis from terminal 1 , separate tickets all alitalia airline we have checked in baggage .
Will that time be enough ? And should we check out completely and re check in for the domestic ?
My in laws are traveling from Hyderbad, India to Minneapolis, USA. They both are Indian citizens . They have connection in FCO , looks like they are arriving to termial3 from Abu Dhabi , lay over time is 5 hours and departing to minneapolis from Terminal 5(alitalia airlines).
Also while going back to Hyderabd they are arriving to Terminal 3 and departing from same terminal to Abu Dhabi , lay over time at FCO is 11 hrs(alitalia airlines). do they need any air transit VISA, to transfer between terminals or for waiting during lay over time. response would be a great help to us. thanks
If you have a valid US Visa then you don't need a schengen transit visa.
Thank you for the reply
We're coming into FCO on Air France (T1) from the United States at 11:50 a.m. on 7/29. On a separate ticket, we're departing to Croatia on Vueling (T3) at 1:20 p.m. We'll have carry-on luggage only. Are we in for a disaster? And if so, is there any way to prevent it in advance?

Any and all help would be much appreciated!!
No flights from the US arrive in T1. They arrive in T3. You should have enough time.
