  • Do I Have to An Earlier Flight?
    Aug 26, 2015
    The Iberia flight arrives at FCO from Turin.


    Is this two separate tickets or one ticket? Also Iberia doesn't fly from Turin to Rome. Do you mean Alitalia?


    Yes, it's two separate tickets.The Iberia Air is operated by Vueling Airlines which arrives at terminal 3. Thanks again


    It's possible if everything goes perfectly on your first flight.


  • Do I Have To Get Earlier Flight?

    I booked a flight with Iberia Air that arrives at 810pm at FCO and connect to Etihad for Abu Dhabi at 950pm is that enough time? Thank you.


  • LIN to FCO and FCO to MIA

    hi, i am travelling from milan linate to miami (sept 21) connecting through rome. we arrive at terminal 1 and have 2hrs 10min to depart from terminal 3. is that enough time ? thank you for your answer


    i forgot to mention that we have checked baggage


    That should be enough time. You will just have to go through Schengen exit passport control in Rome. You won't have to do anything with your baggage.


  • Connection at FCO
    Aug 25, 2015
    Hello, We will be arriving with Alitalia from Toronto at 1PM. I am considering booking a 2:40PM Pegasus flight to Istanbul. Assuming the Alitalia flight arrives on time and we don't check in our bags, is the timing possible? I understand risk is involved. Also: if we don't check in our bags and have already checked in our Pegasus flight online, do we have to go through customs? I think both Alitalia int'l and Pegasus are in terminal 3. Thanks!


    Assuming Alitalia will be on-time is a bad idea. If you do not have checked baggage and you are able to get your Pegasus boarding pass either online or airside, you will not have to go through passport control. However, note that Terminal 3 is still mostly closed. If you are traveling soon everything will still probably be messed up, so you may end up having to go through passport control to get where you need to go.


    We would be leaving Oct 5, so I hope the terminal will be OK by then? How long is it supposed to take? I have an option of flying Turkish for $40 more that leaves at 3:20, giving me 2 hours and 20 mins total time -- does this make a big difference?


    That might be enough to make a difference, also Turkish is a much nicer airline than Pegasus.


  • Transfers and luggage

    We are flying from Toronto to Rome with Transat and from there we have an Alitalia flight to Iasi, Romania (tickets are separate). After one week we booked a flight from Iasi to Rome via Bologna (couldn't find direct flight that day) - when we arrive from Toronto, do we have to pick up the baggage and then check them in again for Iasi, going through customs (as we have separate ticket on different airline)? - when we return from Iasi to Rome, do we pick up the baggage in Bologna and go through customs to get them to the Rome flight ( as basically we transfer from an international flight to domestic, even if the ticket is Iasi- Rome? - on what terminal is Transat arriving - from what terminal is the flight departing from Rome to Iasi - on what terminal do we land from Bologna? I would really appreciate your help. Thank you.


    You will have to pick up your baggage in Rome both ways to transfer it between airlines. In Bologna on your return you will go through Schengen passport control there but not claim your baggage. You will arrive from Bologna in Terminal 1. Air Transat is temporarily using Terminal 5. Your flight to Lasi could depart from Terminal 1 or 3.


    Arriving in Rome at 11:40 in the morning, next flight to Romania is at 4:55 in the afternoon. Do you think we'll make it on time, with all the check out and in? Do we have to go through immigration/ customs, as both flights are international? On what terminal is the depart to Romania? Thank you.


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will depart from Terminal 3. You will have to go through passport control in order to transfer your bags from Air Transat to Alitalia.


    Thanks a lot.


  • United to Alitalia Connection
    Aug 21, 2015
    I am arriving FCO on UA @ 07:45 Terminal 3, then have an Alitalia flight @ 09:50 Terminal 1 FCO to SUF. Suggestions on best way to ensure we make connection? I know we have to get our luggage go through customs and recheck in at Alitalia , i am worried it may be too tight...Any guidance & suggestions would be appreciated!


    It's possible if you arrive on-time and everything goes smoothly at passport control and your baggage comes out promptly. Other than that, just hurry.


  • Is 2 hrs enough time to connect?
    Aug 20, 2015
    We are flying into Rome from US via London on BA arrive 4:10 pm. Then flying Ryan Air from Rome to Catania. There is a 6:15 flight. Is two hours enough to make the connection? We will have to get our bags since it will be on a different reservation.


    It's possible, but there's some risk involved.


  • 1 hour 40 min transfer
    Aug 26, 2015
    I'm in the process of booking a flight from Catania to Rome on Alitalia and transfer in Rome to British airways to fly to US with connection in London. I guess I'll need to pick up my luggage and recheck it on BA. BA flights and Alitalia flights were not made on the same reservation. Is an hour and 40 min enough for this transfer?


    That should be enough time.


    Thank you for answering my question. Do you think we'll need to go through passport control? And as far as I understand Alitalia is in terminal 1 and BA is in terminal 3, are they far apart? How long does it take to go from one to another? Thanks again.


    You will go through security and Schengen exit passport control on your way to your British airways flight. Terminals 1 and 3 are walking distance from each other.


    One more question. I can book my flight on Ryan Air that arrives 10 min earlier and gives me more time for transfer. Does it make sense or Alitalia is better? I'm flying in the middle of October. Thanks for your help.


  • will I have enough time?
    Aug 19, 2015
    I am arriving aug 29 from Bulgaria Terminal 3 and flying direct to NYC on American Airlines with only 1 hour and ten mins to connect. Nervous about making it as I have to check in at Terminal 5. I will only have carry on luggage. Where and how do you board your plane after checking in at Terminal 5? Thanks it's my first time going here. I know you catch the Navetta shuttle outside the front of Terminal 3.


    That won't reasonably be enough time to make your connection.


  • LHR - FCO - CTA
    Aug 19, 2015
    Can you tell me if my bags can be checked all the way thru to Catania or do I need to collect them at Rome and check-in again ?


    If both tickets are on the same reservation you will not have to claim your bags in Rome. You will go through Schengen passport control there.


  • Transfer from Singapore Airline to Alitalia
    Aug 17, 2015
    We are flying into Rome from Australia with a scheduled landing of 8.00 AM. Would be able to make a 10.00 AM Alitalia flight to Naples or should be book the 2.30 PM just to be safe? The flights will have to be booked separately so we will have to retrieve and recheck luggage


    The 10 AM would probably be possible.


  • Belgrade, Serbia to Boston, USA via Rome Fiumicino
    Aug 17, 2015
    Traveling form Belgrade, Serbia to Boston, USA with a connection at Fiumicino Airport. Arriving at FCO at 1:40 pm and leaving for Boston at 3:20pm. I have only 1 hr and 40 min to make the connection. Is it doable? The flight from Belgrade should arrive at Terminal 3, and US flight departs from Terminal 3, as well. Both flights are Alitalia and booked on the same reservation. Do I need to go through the security check, and immigration after disembarking from the flight from Belgrade? I have a non-EU passport and a US visa. Thanks!


    You should only have to go through security. You should have enough time.

  • Flight from US, then getting to an Alitalia flight
    Aug 15, 2015
    I have a flight from the US to FCO. I have a separate flight then booked on Alitalia to Bari. I know I will have to go through immigration and claim my bag, then get to another terminal. Will I then just check into Alitalia? And any terminal information would be helpful from baggage claim to Alitalia terminal.


    You will arrive in Terminal 3 or a makeshift facility, depending on how soon you are traveling. Your flight to Bari will depart from Terminal 1. I suggest at least 2 hours for your transfer.
