  • transit visa req for indian
    Sep 23, 2016
    arriving FCO by Etihad and next flight is for Tirana by ethihad operated by Alitalia. do I require transit visa. I am indian


    You need a Schengen Airport Transit visa issued by the Italian Embassy or Consulate.


    checked with Etihad they say visa not required. I travelled in april and that time also visa was not required for indian passport holders. pls recheck and confirm


  • Connection time needed
    Sep 21, 2016
    I am landing in Fiumicino airport at 12 o'clock noon on British airways. Want to book Ryan airline flight to Palermo leaving at 1:10 PM. Is this enough time? If not, would a Vueling flight at 2:10 pm works?


    I don't think the 1:10 flight would be possible, especially if you have checked bags. I would do the 2:10 flight.


  • Connection to Paris-Rome-Venice
    Sep 16, 2016
    Hi. Connecting in Rome with 70 minutes between flights. Alitalia flight from Paris, and then an Alitalia flight to Venice. Different bookings. Is this enough time?


    SInce everyhing is within Schengen in Terminal 1, that should be enough time. Check in online for all your flights before leaving Paris.


  • Connection Flight from MLA to FCO to YYZ

    I arrive in Terminal 1 at FCO from Malta on Air Italia and have 1h 15min to get to Terminal 3 for connecting flight to Toronto on KLM (operated by Air Italia) do I have enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Also it's Alitalia, not "Air Italia".


  • Rome to Catania connection question
    Sep 13, 2016
    Flying Boston-Dublin-Rome on AerLingus. Arrive 10:30am. Connect to Catania via Alitalia at 12:30pm. Will we have time to change terminals, collect bags, clear customs and security and get our boarding passes? Should we book a later flight or will Alitalia take care of that if we miss the 12:30 flight?


    I think that will be fairly difficult.


  • Transfer process with checked bags
    Sep 13, 2016
    US citizen arriving from MIA and onward to BRI. Same reservation.Have checked bags. Would like to understand security / transfer process at FCO and time required. Return is opposite, arriving from BRI and onward to MIA. What is transfer / security process here and time requirements. Thanks much..


    In Rome you will have to go through Passport control and change terminals both ways.


    thanks. Do I have to claim/recheck bags on either connection?


    If both flights are on Alitalia, no.


  • How Much Time to Allow?
    Sep 11, 2016
    Next summer, flying from Brindisi to FCO on Alitalia, then changing to Air Canada flight to Montreal. 2 separate reservations. Will have checked bags. I'm in business class for the second flight. How much time should I allow between flights in order to not have to rush or worry? Thank you.


    I would still want 3 hours.


  • Helping my parents
    Sep 10, 2016
    My flight departs at T1 and my parents' flight departs at T3. Would I be allowed to enter the security with them at T3, sending them to their gate, and then walk to my own gate in T1 (without exiting the security)? Thanks!


    No, you can't.


  • T3 to T3 Gates with only 55 min
    Sep 9, 2016
    3 nephews landing LH232 at 12:35 connecting to TG945 at 1:30 PM. I think they are both T3 gates. Bags checked. Thoughts please, thanks!


    If both flights are on the same reservation it will be very difficult but it's not impossible.


  • Will I make connection?
    Sep 8, 2016
    Arriving FCO from NRT on EY at 1:10pm, connecting flight on IB to MAD at 3:20pm. Will I have enough time to make my next flight?


    On two separate reservations that will be difficult. On the same reservation that should be enough time.


  • time for transfer
    Sep 8, 2016
    I am arriving FCO from calabria on Alitalia at 9.20am flying out on AA 11.20am to Chicago, Not booked in same reservation. I am trying to see if I can gate check my bag or have it checked all the way through. If I can't do either will I have enough time to catch my flight?


    You won't be able to do either. You don'r realistically have enough time.


  • Connection from T1 to T3
    Sep 8, 2016
    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?


    Are both flights on the same reservation? What airline are you flying out of Rome on? Where are you going?


    Yes both flights are on the same reservation and I am flying with the same airline, "Alitalia" to Madrid. I beg my pardon, I have made a mistake, since I am going to transfer from T3 to T1. If you have any information how to do so and how much time it may take to me, please help me! It is my first time in FCO and I need to catch my flight in less than an hour.


    just follow the signs to your departure gate. YOu will just go through passport control on the way. You have barely enough time.


  • Will I make connection?
    Sep 6, 2016
    I have an Alitalia flight arriving into Rome at 12:20. Then on a separate ticket I have another Alitalia flight to Naples at 2:30 at a different terminal. Will I have enough time to get baggage, go through customs, change terminals, go through security and make the flight? What are my options if I don't make the flight?


    Where are you flying into Rome from? You should have enough time.


    Miami, USA


    Yes, that should be just enough time.


  • Boarding pass and enough time?
    Sep 3, 2016
    Can i get a boarding pass at the boarding gate? My flight arrives from dubai at 2005 at terminal 3 and my connecting alitalia flight departs to skopje at 2145 at terminal 1.. My baggages hopefully will be checked through to the destination.. Trying to save time by hopfully being able to reprint my boarding pass at the gate?


    You can get your boarding pass at the Alitalia transfer desk.


    Is that near the gate before security? Or after? I hope there is enough time what do you think?


  • time schedule
    Sep 2, 2016
    what is the time schedule for shuttle from terminal 1 to terminal 5 and how long will it take from terminal 1 to terminal 5 Thank you


    Italy? Schedule? Surely you jest. Budget that it will take at least 45 minutes to change terminals.
