  • Will I make my connecting flight?
    Feb 28, 2017
    I will be arriving at FCO 6/28/17 at 7:30 am and have to get my Athens flight at 8:45 am. I have one carry on backpack. Will I make my flight?


    Where are you flying into Rome from? What airlines?


    From Chicago O'Hare on AirFrance. Going to Athens on Alitalia.


    Air France does not fly from Chicago to Rome. So then both flights are likely on Alitalia. That is enough time if both flights are on the same reservation and the flight from Chicago is on-time.


    Yes and I sure hope so. Thanks!


  • Transfer Time
    Mar 1, 2017
    Arriving on Singapore Airlines at 0805 at Terminal 3, Need to connect to an Alitalia flight to Bari from terminal 1 departing at 0950. Seperate tickets and will have checked luggage. Is there enough time to make this connection possible?


    It's barely possible if everything goes perfectly.


    Thanks for that. We are concerned about the short connection but will get our skates on and hopefully make it. Can you tell me how far it is between T3 and Ti when transiting please?


  • Recheck luggage?
    Feb 24, 2017
    I'm flying ORD-TXL-FCO on two separate airlines that were purchased on the same ticket. Will I have to recheck my bags at TXL


    What two airlines?


    American Airlines and Air Berlin


    Then no, you won't have to do anything with your bags in Berlin, just go through Schengen Entry Passport control and to your departure gate.


    Thank you. Approximately how long does Schengen Entry Passport control take? I have a two hour layover


    In Berlin it shouldn't take too long, maybe 10-15 minutes tops.


  • VRN-FCO-JFK 1 hour

    AZ1492 VRN-FCO lands in T1 1 hour transit AZ610 FCO-JFK leaves from T3 Will I have to go through passport and security again? Must I take a train? Thanks a lot!


    You will have to go through Schengen exit passport control. You may or may not have to take a train to the T3 Satellite. It is a risky connection but not impossible.


  • Alitalia to Air Europe
    Feb 23, 2017
    Hi. I'm flying from NRT to FCO with Alitalia (STA 7:05am) then I want to connect Air Europe flight to MAD (STD 10:30am) With checked baggage and separate ticket. Is it enough time ?


    Yes, that should be enough time.

    Hi. Flying from Tel Aviv to New York (JFK) via Rome. Is 1:20 min connection time enough? Flying Alitalia on one ticket with a family of 6 and checked luggage.


    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Tel Aviv is on-time.


  • Terminal 2 transfer to terminal 1
    Feb 20, 2017
    Hello. I have schedules an Blueair flight Otopeni to Rome terminal 2 and then another booking Alitalia Rome to NewYork. Question: Can my luggage go directly to USA even if I travel with 2 different companies, or I have to retrieve luggage in terminal 2 and move again to check in in terminal 1 for AZ608 ? Same question when I come back from USA.


    arrive in terminal 2 and new departure is in terminal 1 ....only to be clear


    Sorry departure terminal 3 not 1


    You will have to claim your bags and re-check it with Alitalia.


  • 2 hours 10 min - separate ticket, T1-T3, make next flight?
    Feb 19, 2017
    Hi I'm flying from the US and land in FCO flying Lufthansa (terminal 3) at 1235pm with checked luggage. Trying to book a separate flight to Paris same day. I searched all airlines and it seems the only available times are 245pm and 550pm. Question is, will we make the 245pm flight? We want to make that flight because if it's the 550pm flight we end up at the airport for 5 1/2 hours, but if it's unrealistic to book the 245 then we will have to do the 550. Thank you much.


    Lufthana doesn't fly from the US to Rome. Where in the US are you flying from or are you stopping in Germany first?


  • FCO terminal 1 to 3
    Feb 18, 2017
    Hi. We are arriving with Air Serbia from Belgrade (from Tel Aviv) at terminal 1 19:35 and have an Emirates flight form terminal 3 at 22:05 (first class...hopefully quick check in). Will this be enough time on a Thursday evening? Do we need to go through passport control/security on arrival and departure? Thanks


  • Alitalia 479 BUD to FCO connecting to Alitalia 1470 FCO to Venice
    Feb 16, 2017
    Arrive Terminal 1 and depart Terminal 1. About 30 minutes to make connection. Do I have to go through security again or do I go directly to the gate?


    You can go straight to the departure gate.


  • 75 min to land, get Vueling boarding pass, make next flight?
    Feb 16, 2017
    I will land FCO at 8:00 am on a Delta flight from US and am booked on a separate ticket on Vueling to Dubrovnik, departing 10:00 am. Both arriving and departing flights should be Terminal 3. However, Vueling (after I booked) said that I cannot get boarding pass to DBV on-line and must go to a "check-in desk" at FCO AND that I must be checked in no less than 45 min before departure. I will only have carry-on and thought that I would be able to go directly from Delta gate to Vueling gate. Now, however, am concerned that I'll have to go outside of security and stand in line at outer Vueling desk, then re-enter security, etc. Plus boarding gate closes 20 min before departure. Am concerned that I won't make this connection, esp. if Delta runs even a few min. late. Can I get Vueling boarding pass at Vueling boarding gate? Would deeply appreciate any help or wisdom. Thanks!


    With a carry-on only I think it's possible but certainly risky. Vueling should have a transfer desk inside security.


    Thank you! I will hope for a transfer desk, and will move quickly!


  • Schengen visa holder issued by German embassy
    Feb 12, 2017
    JFK-FCO-FRA. Stop over for 1 hr and 30 minutes in FCO. Italy is one of the listed Schengen area, no need for transit visa? Second question, flying all the way on Alitalia ticket, enough connection time -T3 to T1? Please re-verify to give me peace of mind. Thank you in advance.


    Yes, your visa issued by Germany is sufficient for entry into Italy for your connection. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Tunis-Rome-Venice
    Feb 9, 2017
    Hi, If I have a connected flight with Alitalia from Tunis to Venice with 1h10min layover in Rome, would this gave me enough time to change the terminals from 3 to 1?


    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Can i make the flight which has 1 hr 20 mins trmnl 3 to trmnl 1
    Feb 9, 2017
    Can i make the flight which has 1 hr 20 mins trmnl 3 to trmnl 1


    Are both flights on the same reservation? What airline is the first flight on? Where is it from?


  • 925am Vueling Air to AIR France Flight at 10:20
    Feb 9, 2017
    Is this Enough Time? Its two separate flights landing FCO Terminal 3, and a flight at 10:20 departing at Terminal 3?


    With checked bags that is not enough time. Without checked bags that is probably enough time.
