  • terminal 3 to terminal 1 connection
    Oct 29, 2014
    Arriving from Toronto at terminal 3 at 1:15pm. Connecting flight Alitilia terminal 1 to Munich at 2:35pm terminal 1. We don't have EU passports. Will we be able to make our connection ?


    forgot to say that both flights are Alitalia.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Is an hour enough?
    Oct 28, 2014
    Is 1 hour and 10 minutes enough time to catch a plane at FCO? I am flying from Atlanta to FCA via Delta and then from FCO to Bucharest with Delta as well (DL6615). Is an hour enough time to make this connection?


    FCO* Sorry


    Your flight to Bucharest will not be operated by Delta, it will be operated by Alitalia and will depart from Terminal 3, the same Terminal from which you should arrive. You will not have to go through Schengen Immigration as you will not be entering the Schengen area. You should be able to go directly from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Geneva-Tirana flight, connecting in Rome, fast way to get from T2-T3
    Oct 23, 2014
    Hi! I have a return connecting flight from Geneva to Tirana, through Rome Fiumicino. For the trip Geneva-Tirana, I reach Terminal 2 and have to catch my other flight in Terminal 3. I have 1:30 mins of time to do this. On my return trip, I arrive in Terminal 3 but need to get to Terminal 2. I have 1 hour to do this. I am travelling with hand luggage only. How far are the two terminals? Which is the quickest way to go for this? Thanks, Nita


    It is a very easy walk between T2 and T3, you should have plenty of time on your way to Tirana. On your return from Tirana it will be much more difficult as you will have to go through Schengen Immigration, then make your way to T2. However, you should be able to check in for your Easyjet flight online which should save some time.


  • transit gates H to D in Terminal 3
    Oct 19, 2014
    I am travelling standby with Air Canada from Rome to Toronto. If I don't get on the Air Canada flight I will travel with British Airways to London Heathrow. Both airlines depart from Terminal 3. Is it possible to get from the H gates to the D gates without going through security and passport control for a second time?


    Made a mistake BA departs in Terminal 3. Is Terminal 3 gates G and H? If so is it possible to walk from one to the other without going through security and passport control again?


    Yes, you should be able to.

    tel aviv through Rome to New York all in T3. I have 1 hour. is it suffucuent? need to go to security? collect baggage? Return again but need to go from T3 to T1 in 2 hours. possiable? thanks


    On your trip to NY if both flights are on Alitalia you won't have to do anything in Rome except perhaps go through security. You have enough time for both connections.

    Arriving in FCO Rome from Catania via Vueling Air at 9:30 am and then to US via US Air at 11:30. Which terminals? Is there any passport control in FCO or just security check? How about timewise- is there enough time. Thanks.


    You will not have to go through passport control in FCO as Catania is also in the schengen area. However, to check in for your US AIrways flight you will have to take the Shuttle bus to Terminal 5 where you will check in and go through security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Terminal 3 US Airways arrival, Air Malta Terminal 3 departure
    Oct 6, 2014
    My wife and her sister are flying to FCO arriving on Flight 720 at 9:45am and have to transfer to Air Malta Flight 613 departing at 11:00am. Can they make the transfer, and what is the procedure? Thanks for any help, Herb Sherman, TX, USA


    It will be nearly impossible for them to make this transfer. They should not have booked it.


  • Transfer form Delta to Alitalia
    Oct 6, 2014
    My Delta flight arrives at terminal 3 in Rome at 7:30 am. Upon arrival I will proceed to terminal 1 to catch a 9:20 am flight on Alitalia to Terana Albania. I MUST go to an Alitalia kiosk at the Rome airport to check in for my flight. Can I accomplish this with a 1 hr and 50 min layover? Also, where will I find the nearest Alitalia kiosk?


    Did you purchase your tickets together? If so Delta should be able to issue your boarding pass for your Tirana flight and check your baggage through to Tirana. Also, if you purchased tickets together, as Albana is outside the Schengen area, your flight will not depart from Terminal 1, but will depart from Terminal 3 and you may not even have to go through schengen passport control to access your second flight.


  • Qatar airways to alitalia transfer
    Sep 20, 2014
    Hi, this is my first time traveling to Italy. My flight plan is kul - fco (on qatar) - trs (on alitalia). 1) Can I check in for both the FCO and TRS flight from KUL? Or can I only check in for the TRS flight in FCO? 2) Can I check in my bags straight through to TRS from KUL? 3) I arrive at FCO at 12:40pm in T3 and my TRS flight is at 2:50pm at T1. Do I have sufficient time for the transfer? Thank you.


    Did you purchase your tickets together or separately? If together you will be able to check your bags through to TRS. You should have enough time for your transfer. You will go through Schengen immigration as you go from T3 to T1.


    I purchased my tickets separately. Will I be able to check my bags through to TRS?


    Then you probably will not and it will be hard for you to make your transfer on-time.


  • FCO
    Sep 19, 2014
    I am flying Delta 240 into Rome FCO on Sept 21. The flight is supposed to arrive at 7:30am in Terminal 3. I have a connecting Atalia flight in Terminal 3. Is it difficult to go between terminals. Is there a shuttle


    You can walk from your arrival in Terminal 3 to Any Alitalia gate (T1 for Schengen, T3 for non-schengen).


  • FCO VCE Transit
    Sep 16, 2014
    Hello, I will take the AZ785 from Tokyo NRT to FCO, and later take the AZ1473 to VCE with about 2 hours 20 minutes (+- 30 minutes depends on the situations) for transition, is the time enough ? Thanks !


    From T3 to T1, baggage would be directly sent to VCE I think.


  • Terminal 5 to 3 in one hour?
    Sep 15, 2014
    Arriving on usair at terminal 5. Need to checking and get a boarding pass from vueling in terminal 3. Will I have time?


    You will not arrive in Terminal 5 - no flights arrive in Terminal 5. It is a departure only terminal. You will arrive in Terminal 3. However you will have to go through Immigration and customs. by the time you do this you will be past the check-in cutoff for Vueling. You need to get a later flight out of Rome.
