  • Connections in T3 -different airlines
    Sep 1, 2016
    I am arriving from Abu Dhabi on Etihad at 1.10pm and checking onto Iberia departing at 3.20pm with luggage. Both are in T3. Do I need to clear customs or can I check in for Iberia in-transit? Is this enough time? Thanks


    Yes, since you are on two separate reservations you will have to go through passport control, claim your bags, re-check them with Iberia/Vueling, and go through security.


    Thanks Zap


  • Terminal 5 to Terminal 3
    Sep 6, 2016
    We are arriving 12:10 p.m. into Terminal 5, FCO (Terminal 5) via United, We have to meet with our friends who are arriving 4:15 pm into FCO (Terminal 3), via British Airways - about 4 hrs later.. What is the best way to go from Terminal 5 to the Baggage arrivals section of Terminal 3 ? We have 3 pieces of luggage & would like to wait preferably near an airport restaurant. Do we need to go through security again? Thanks.


    YOu do not arrive in Terminal 5. You arrive in Terminal 3. You both arrive in Terminal 3. Meet at the meeting point in Terminal 3.


    I am flying in a few days to Madrid so I am changing my plane in Rome, FCO. I am arriving in Terminal 1 from a Shengen area country and I need to go Terminal 3 to catch my flight. Time between flights is 55 minutes. Do I have enough time? Which is the fastest way for me to get from T1 to T3 and how to I proceed?

    Terminal 3 and Terminal 5?


    No flights arrive in Terminal 5. Both of you will arrive in Terminal 3.


  • TLV -FCO-JFK connection time
    Aug 30, 2016
    On Dec. 1 I have a ticket TLV-FCO on Alitalia with a 1:15 layover and continuation to JFK on Delta. Same ticket. Enough time?


    Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • connecting Termian 1 to Terminal 3
    Aug 30, 2016
    Once I land in Rome from the US at Terminal 3, I connect to Terminal 1 to Pisa. Do I have to go through security?


    I believe you will.


  • connecting Rome to Florence
    Aug 29, 2016
    arrive American Wed 8/31 about 9AM. Have separate Air Italia ticket Rome to Florence about 10:30 AM. Carry on luggage only. 1)so I need to go through immigration/customs and 2) can I make the connection?


    With no checked bags that is barely enough time. Check in for your Alitalia flight online before you leave the US.


  • Coming in from Florence to FCO
    Aug 28, 2016
    HI we are taking the train from Florence arriving in FCO around 9.52am. Our international flight to Asia leaves at 12noon and leaves from T3. Would 2 hours suffice in the airport?


    Are yoi sure it arrives directly at the airport. Usually speed trains arrive t Termini station. If you have 2 hourd that should be enough at the airport. just check your terminal.


    Hi yes there's a direct from Florence to Roma Aeroporto. I have been told to allow 3 hours due to security checks in FCO. So I just wanted to confirm. Thanks.


  • 1:55 connection time

    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.


  • 2 hours change plane

    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 ??


  • 50 min - change planes?

    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?


  • 3 hour 20 minutes connection time on different tickets
    Aug 25, 2016
    Hi! 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!


  • T3 Connection Time
    Aug 24, 2016
    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.


  • Florence connection
    Aug 22, 2016
    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.
