    Are there two separate custom area at this airport?


    What airport?


    Ah, now I see that you are referring to FCO. No, all immigration and customs are done in Terminal 3.

    They're not far apart, maybe a 10 minute walk.


  • Terminal 1 to terminal 3
    Nov 7, 2013
    We fly from venice to Rome on AZ 1466, arriving in terminal 1 and then connect to AZ610 flying to New York from terminal 3. we have 1hr and 15 min connection. Will we have to do any customs/immigration and will be able to check our bags al the way through to NY? If we don't have to get bags etc, is 1 hr and 15 min enough time to transfer?


    No, you will not have to go through immigration in Rome, just security. Yes, your bags should be checked all the way though to New York in Venice.


    Then will 1hr and 15 min be enough time to transfer?


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time you should be OK


  • Connecting Flight

    I am arriving from Toronto, Canada on Alitalia flight scheduled for arrival time of 12:35 pm and need to connect to Alitalia flight to Lamezia Terme departing 3:15pm. Which terminal does the Alitalia flight to Lamezia depart and will I have enough time to catch my flight.


    You will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 1. You should have enough time. You can walk between the two terminals.


  • Gates terminal 1 vs terminal 2
    Oct 10, 2013
    Arrive from Boston and get connecting flight to Florence on Aliitalia. Flight to Florence is listed to depart from terminal 1 at gate c06.Can this be right, I thought all flights from terminal 1 were B gates.


    Boston does not have a Terminal B - Alitalia uses Terminal E (Gates E2a through E8b are straight ahead, while gates E1a through E1e are at the lower right side). I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    Gate C06 is in Terminal 2 at Boarding Area C (Terminal 2 serves Schengen & non-Schengen domestic flights).


  • arriving term 5 Delta Airlines going to Term 3 Agean Airlines
    Oct 7, 2013
    we have an hour between flights is this enough time to get luggage and make the flights?


    You will not arrive in Terminal 5. There are no arrivals in Terminal 5. You will arrive in Terminal 3. So all you will have to do after you clear customs is to go to the departures area and check-in with Aegean. However, only an hour is a very tight window to have to do that and unless your flight gets in quite early I don't think you will have enough time.


  • Connection between terminal 3 and 5

    Hi, I am arriving from Beirut, Lebanon on Alitalia terminal 3 at 11:10 am and have to catch a flight on delta to New York from terminal 5 at 12:50 pm. I am going to the US on a tourist visa. Will the time be enough to transi?


    Hmm, I don't know. You will have to go through EU immigration in T3 first, then take a bus, which runs on Italian time (no schedule), and then check in, go through security, and a security interview, which I suspect may take longer than usual since you're coming from Lebanon. It will be pretty tough.

    How much time does it take to walk from terminal 1 to terminal 3


    You arrive at Boarding Area B of T1 - follow signs to Boarding Area H or H (D gates or H gates) of T3. The overhead screens will indicate flight & gate numbers. Estimated time: 15 mins.


  • Which Terminals and How Much Time to Recheck Bags
    Sep 18, 2013
    We will be flying into FCO from Frankfurt on Luftansa and then checking in with We will be flying into FCO from Frankfurt on Luftansa and then rechecking our bags for Alitalia flight to Venice. Which Terminals will we be flying in and out of and how much time should we allow for all of this?


    You will arrive in the Schengen side of Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 1. I would allow 2 hours since you will have to deal with baggage transfer yourselves.

    I am leaving lax to Rome on air Alitalia I have 1 hour or 40 minutes to the next flight on air Alitalia to Lamezia terms they said I have time to my next flight even going threw costly.


    That should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal 3 and have to go to Terminal 1.

    Yes, assuming both of your flights are on Alitalia and are both within Schengen and your flights are on-time.

    I might add that my Airline is Delta from JFK. And that I arrive in Rome at 09:55AM and leave for Catania on Alitalia at 11:20 AM. Enough time to make connecting flight?

    I arrive from JFK at terminal 5 and need to connect with my flight to Catania at terminal 1. How do I get from 5 to 1?


    You do not arrive in T5, there are no arrivals in T5. You will arrive in Terminal 3. After you clear customs and exit from immigration you can walk to T1. You will really have to hurry to have a chance to make your connection.

    I arrive from Athens with Aegean at 10:00 am and departing with USAIR to Charlotte at 11:05. Is there enough time to make the connection? Thanks....


    No, that is not enough time - I guarantee you will be stuck in Rome with that itinerary. I recommend changing your flight to fly into Rome a day earlier or out of Rome a day later if you cannot find an earlier flight (which is doubtful considering how early you are already flying).
