  • Check baggage on different airline to Florence
    Oct 18, 2016
    American Air flight to Rome from US connecting to Aitalia to Florence. Separate tickets. Can bags be sent all the way to Florence from the States via Rome, without retrieving bags, going through customs and then re-checking into Aitalia ?


    If you have two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags in Rome and transfer them yourself to the Alitalia check-in desk in Terminal 1.


  • Enough time for connecting flight?
    Oct 17, 2016
    In 2 weeks I fly from AMS to FCO, I will have 45 min to get from Terminal 1 arrival to Terminal 1 departure (FCO to CTA). This will be my first time with a layover. Do I have enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Since all flights are within the Schengen Area there are no passport controls.


  • Connecting NAP yo CLT in FCO
    Oct 12, 2016
    Connecting tomorrow in FCO arriving Alitalia at 7:40 AM from NAP connecting to American departure 11:15AM to CLT single ticket with checked bags will I have to recheck bags in Rome and will that be enough time to make connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time. if it's a single ticket you won't have to recheck your bags in Rome.


  • Athens -> Rome -> Barcelona
    Oct 12, 2016
    Hello, this one is kind of long. 6 of us are arriving from Athens to FCO T3 via Agean Air @ 16:40. (with 6 checked bags) We need to put 2 bags into storage at T3 for two of the travelers that will be returning 7(?) days later. The (4) remaining bags and all 6 passengers need to catch a flight to Barcelona, leaving T2 @ 18:25 via Ryanair So, we only have 1:45 connection time. Would luggage from Agean normally transfer to Ryanair automatically? If so, how do we go about having those two bags stop in Rome? Also, if we have to get those two, or all six bags, is that enough time to transfer? I thought it would be but wife is concerned. We're all young enough to hurry/run as needed, lol.


    No airlines transfer bags to or from Ryanair. This is a very difficult connection because of the bags. Without the bags it wouldn't be an issue.


    Thanks for the info. So, we will need to gather all of our bags, store the two, and bring the other bags to Ryanair check in. Will we need to go through security or other potentially long lines? Is the baggage claim right in T3, near the gates? Any details you could provide to help us along would be appreciated!!!


    The baggage claim is not near the gates but it's not too far from the Ryanair check-in. Yes, you will have to go through security after checking in for your Ryanair flight.

    Arrive Alitalia from Brindisi at 8:20; Leave 11:20 AA to Chicago, First Class. separate records, no bags to check. Can I make it. Does the fast Track voucher help at all?


    That should be enough time. I don't think you will need or use fast track in Rome on your way out.


  • Connection USA arrival (Terminal 3) to Ryanair (TerminaL 2)
    Oct 7, 2016
    Time between scheduled arrival (terminal 3) and departure (Terminal 2) is 2 hours, 30 minutes. Should I be able to clear passport control and make connecting flight on a Wednesday AM (carry-on luggage only)? Or should I reschedule Ryanair connection?


    That should be enough time, especially without checked bags. Check in for your Ryanair flight online before leaving the US.


    Thank you.

    i will be arriving in Rome at 13:00 and have a connecting flight for Naples at 14:25 is 1 hour and 25 minutes enough. i do not have to check bags.


    Where are you flying into Rome from? What airlines are you flying?




    flying from Paris


    What airline are you flying to Naples? If it's on the same reservation as your flight from Paris you should have enough time as everything is within Schengen.

    We are flying Alitalia from Palermo to Rome arriving at 7:30am. We need to connect with an United flight at 9:55am. I have requested a wheelchair when I get off the Alitalia flight as I cannot walk long distances. We have checked baggage. Will we be able to make our UA fight.


    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    We will be arriving at FCO terminal 3 on EY flight from sydney at 1.10 pm with checked baggage. We need to catch the Alitalia flight to Brindisi in Terminal 1 with checked baggage at 5pm. Will we have enough time and also what signs do we follow from terminal 3? can we walk to terminal 1?


    If everything is on the same reservation just follow the signs to your departure gate. You will go through Schengen Passport Control and Security.

    I will by flying on one ticket (with Iberia), with the following itinerary: Marrakech-Madrid, Madrid-Rome, Rome-Palermo (operated by vueling). When landing in Rome, will I need to go through customs/immigration and claim/transfer my bag before connecting to my flight to Palermo?


    No, all you do in Rome is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate since you will have gone through Schengen Entry in Madrid.

    If I arrive to Terminal 1 from Palermo at 7:30, will I have enough time to connect to an 11:15 Departure from Terminal 5. My tickets are not connected but I'll have no checked bags. Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Arriving AA#110, terminal 5?; departing RyanAir #2
    Oct 13, 2016
    Need to pick up bags and get them to Term2 with us. Don't know exact logistics...not even sure we arrive from US @ #5. There hours enough?


    You do not arrive in Terminal 5. You will arrive in Terminal 3 - no flights arrive in Terminal 5. You will go through passport control, claim your bags, take them to the Ryanair check-in desk, re-check your bags, and then go through security.


    I will arrive in Rome from Sicily at 8:45 am with Alitalia. My American flight leaves 11:35. I have one luggage. Is this enough connection time.
