  • Tight connection
    Aug 18, 2016
    We are arriving from Malta on Alitalia 0887 at 1:35 Terminal 1 then to JFK on Alitalia 0610 at 2:45 Terminal 3. Is this connection possible?


    It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Does immigration and baggage collection required at Rome before boarding Alitalia flight to Athens? if yes how much time it will take ? are terminal different ?


    You will go through passport control in Rome. Are your tickets on two separate reservations or one reservation?


    Just talked to her ..Its one long ticket but 3 different carriers. Jet airways for 1 leg ( Bom to Abo dabbi ) and Altalia from Abu Dabbi to Rom. I beleive bags will be checked in all the way till Rom


    Then she will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 1 and have to transfer her bags.


  • Connection & transit procedures

    Hello, My mom is flying to Naples from Moscow via Rome, with arrival to Rome in Terminal 3 and departure to Naples in terminal 1, both flights with Alitalia. She is concerned about transit and immigration procedures, she's got 1.5 hours in between the flights. The flights are booked on one ticket. Can you please advise what she has to do in terms of immigration and passport control and transit procedure in this case. Can she go directly from one terminal to another, she has the appropriate valid visa to travel already. Thank you!


    She will go through passport control and then through security and to her departure gate in Terminal 1. She has just enough time if the flight from Moscow is on-tine.


  • Connection Int. to Domestic

    Hello, I'm flying Dubai- Rome on Emirates with US passport. Then taking alitalia/darwin flight to Pisa. Will 2.5 hours be sufficient to clear passport control, collect luggage, and get to domestic terminal gate (I assume is 1-hour check in required for domestic)? Thank you.


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I'm arriving in Rome via Delta 444 from JFK, at 10:45 a.m. I have a connection on Alitalia 896 to Cairo that leaves at 11:45 a.m. Is this enough time to make the connection? Will I need to go through immigration in FCO?


    You will not go through immigration since you are not entering the Schengen Area, you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Is an hour enough time?


    It should be enough time if the flight is on-time.

    I am arriving at FCO Rome from Malta via Alitalia then connecting at T3 with Air Croatia to Split. Will I have to claim luggage and check in again


    Are your tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations? If two separate reservations then yes, you will have to claim your bags and check them again in T3 with Air Croatia.

  • Visa
    Aug 17, 2016
    Hi, I am coming from Abu DHabi. I am landing in Rome at 7 AM and I have my connect flight to Atlanta at 12 noon. I have a US visa and Indian passport. Do I need any additional Visa in Rome. My flight is landing on Terminal 5 and next flight from terminal 3. Please suggest


    No, you do not need a transit visa since you hold a valid US Visa. Both flights will be in Terminal 3 - no flights arrive in Terminal 5.


    I have the same iterniery as mentioned here Abudhabi-Rome-Atlanta. But the e-ticket shows the arrival terminal is 3 and departure terminal is 5.


    You don't have to go to Terminal 5, you can go directly to your departure gate in Terminal 3.


    I'm arriving at Fumicino At 9.05 a.m from Chicago. Than I want to book separate ticket Rome Fumicino to Barcelona El Prat. How much time should I allow between the flights because I would first need to pick up my baggage and check in for the new flight? I would probably use Vueling or Raynair for the BCN flight. Thank you in advance.


    I wouldn't book anything before 12:00 at the absolute earliest.

    I will be flying from Atlanta to Rome on Delta 62 arriving at 7:00am Terminal 3 connecting to Delta 6619 (operated by Alitalia) at 10:00am to Naples from Terminal 1. Do I need to pick up my baggage and recheck? Also do I have to leave secured area and go through security again? Thank you!


    No you do not have to do anything with your bags. You should not have to go through security again, but may have to due to construction. Regardless you have plenty of time.

  • In Transit to Paris from NON-SCHENGEN
    Aug 8, 2016
    I have flight from a non-schenhgen country to Paris, going through transit in Rome, Fiumicino (FCO) terminal 3. Same airline tickets with checked baggage. I am arriving at 7am and the next flight to Paris is at 8am. Do I have to go through passport control and security? If so will I miss the flight?


    Yes, you will have to go through passport control. Security depends on your origin city. You have barely enough time.

    I have a connecting flight from Rome to Chicago I land in terminal 3 and depart to Chicago from terminal 5 do I have to collect luggage? The tickets I purchased were booked at once? Will I have to recheck in through security?


    You don't have to do anything with your bags and depending on where you're coming from, if you are checked through to your final destination you don't even have to go to Terminal 5. What airlines are you flying?


    Elal from Tel aviv to Rome then American airline from Rome to Los Angeles


    Thanks so much


  • Meeting each other arriving in different terminals

    I will be flying into T3 on AZ 651 and my friend will be flying into T1 on AZ 2037. We both will have checked bags to claim but we both need to meet up together at the airport somehow to catch the Leonardo Express train to the city. Are the arrivals area of the two terminals connected or what is the recommend option on where we could both meet without getting lost and with having to do our baggage claims and customs etc.


    I would meet in the Leonardo Express train station.
