  • Will I have enough time ?
    Jun 5, 2015
    Arrive from Singapore 7.50am and have 10.55 am Easyjet flight to London (separate tickets) will I have enough time to get through Passport control, collect luggage and get to Easyjet Bag Drop by 10.15 (when it closes) then to gate by 10.25 (when it closes)


    That should be enough time assuming your Singapore flight is on-time.


  • connection terminal 3 to terminal 1

    my flight with alitalia from bucarest romania will arrived at 20;30 at terminal 3 ,and will depart from terminal 1 to casablanca maroc at 22h40 also with alitalia(i bought the ticket with one booking i m from morroco and i have a non ue passeport and an ue resendency ; will i pass through schengen passport control ?do i need a tranzit viza for this?thank you


    Both flights should be in Terminal 3 and you should not have to pass through Schengen Passport control. If you have EU permanent residency you should not need a visa.


  • Connection time required
    Jun 5, 2015
    Flying to FCO from Santorini (Vueling) due in at 14.25. Looking to connect with Alitalia flight to catania at 16.45. Is this workable? .Thanks


    Yes, that should be possible. Since Greece and Italy are both in Schengen you won't have to go through passport control.




  • Connecting time needed for Rome to Istanbul
    Jun 2, 2015
    Arriving in Rome at 9:10am wondering if I book a flight at 10:55am on Turkish Airways to Istanbul will I have enough time to collect my bags and go through security?


    That should be enough time if your first flight is within Schengen. it's pushing it a little if your first flight is non-schengen.


  • Alitalia Amsterdam Rome Alger
    Jun 2, 2015
    We will be flying from Amsterdam, Netherlands to Alger, Algeria with a transfer on FCO with a duration of 1h05 - the tickets are booked at once, so not separately. Will this be enough time?


    Also, would it matter that one of us has an Algerian passport (and EU residence)?


    Yes, that should be enough time, you will just walk from your arrival gate in Terminal 1 to your departure gate in Terminal 3. you will go through Schengen exit passport control on your way.


    Awesome, thank you! I just remembered that in 2010 I went through FCO aswell, the exact same traject. The first flight was delayed though, which left me with less than an hour for the transit. However, I even made it to the gate before the passengers could board! Anyway, thanks again, I really appreciate what you're doing!


  • Time for connecting flight
    Jun 2, 2015
    We are flying from Detroit, MI, to Rome on Delta and then connecting (also on Delta) to Reggio Calabria) with a 55-minute layover. Will we have to go through customs in Rome or in Reggio since we are on Delta both flights from the same terminal? If no customs in Rome, will this be enough time to make the connecting flight? Thanks!


    Note that your flight to Reggio will be operated by Alitalia. In Rome you will arrive in Terminal 3, go through Schengen passport control, follow signs to your departure gate in Terminal 1. 55 minutes is possible but really pushing it.


    Thank you. I think I may change our flights. I would hate to cut things too short.


  • 1 hour 25 minute connection
    May 30, 2015
    US Citizen. Flying both legs on Alitalia from Nice, France to Rome (arrives at 1pm) and then Rome to Florence (departs 3:25). 1 hour 25 minutes connection. Is this enough time. Will we have to collect bags and go through customs? Thanks


    Yes, that is plenty of time. Both flights are in Terminal 1. You do not go through passport control, collect baggage, or go through customs in Rome because France and Italy are both in the Schengen zone.


  • Amsterdam - Tokyo
    May 30, 2015
    Hello, I'm going to Tokyo next week. I fly from Amsterdam to Roma and then Tokyo. But in Roma I only have 50 minutes to change the plane and I guess the terminal. Do you think it is sufficient and what do I have to do once landed in Roma?


    You need to run to your departure gate in Terminal 3. You will go through Schengen Exit Passport control on the way.


  • Do I have to change terminals and collect baggage?
    May 30, 2015
    If I fly into Rome but have a separate ticket for an in country flight to Naples do I have to collect baggage and changes terminals? Are terminals difficult to find and navigate through?


    Yes, you will have to claim your baggage and transfer it to your second airline. Most domestic Italy flights are operated out of Terminal 1. You can walk easily between Terminals 1, 2, and 3 in Rome.


  • Dubai to Rome then onto Pisa with 1.45hr in between - Enough time?
    May 29, 2015
    We are flying from Australia to Dubai, Dubai to Rome on Emirates arriving in Rome at 1.115pm.we have a connecting flight to Pisa at 3.00pm with Alitalia. Is 1hr 45 min enough time to make our connecting flight? They are booked on separate bookings and we will have to collect checked luggage and a stroller for our daughter.




    That should be enough time but doesn't leave much time to spare. You will have to hurry to Terminal 1 to check your bags with Alitalia on-time.


  • Landing at Terminal3 connecting to Terminal1
    May 28, 2015
    We have a single ticket from AUH to Malaga. landing at Terminal 3 at 0640 hrs and connecting from Terminal 1 at 1000 hrs. Question: non EU passport. Does immigration have to be done and baggage re checked in? will definitely check in baggage directly to Malaga, in that case does the immigration have still to be done in rome or will it be done in Malaga? Do we have to exit one building and go to another terminal by road/coach/train. Basically my question is taht are Terminal 3 and Terminal interconnected?


    What airport are you connecting at? What airlines are you flying? Did you purchase your tickets separately or together?


  • Getting between Terminals
    May 28, 2015
    I am arriving on Delta Airlines (Term 5?) and attempting to meet my daughter arriving on EuroAir later in the day (I have about 5 hours to kill) can I go to her arrival termial to meet her? I am assuming each terminal has its own baggage claim so I will need to get my bag then meet her.


    What airport is this at? EuroAir ceased operations 6 years ago - please double check her reservation and I can help you more.


    Air Europa! Sorry, that's what I get for posting while at work!


    OK, you will arrive in the Terminal 3 satellite. No flights arrive in Terminal 5, it is a check-in/security building only. Her Air Europa flight will arrive in Terminal 1. Yes, you could go over to the arrivals level of Terminal 1 and meet her there.


    'Me again, what about my luggage? Can I pick up my bag when she arrives? Is there just one baggage claim for everyone? What happens to my bag if I don't pick it up until then( about 7 hours) I would rather wait in a terminal than in baggage claim for that amount of time. Thank you so much


    There is not one baggage claim for everyone. You will claim your bags at the Non-Schengen baggage claim in Terminal 3. You will HAVE to claim your bag then in order to exit Terminal 3 and customs, you won't be allowed back in. You could then take yourself and your bag to Terminal 1. Her baggage claim in Terminal 1 will also likely be inaccessible (although I'm not personally familiar with the layout of the arrivals level of Terminal 1). Anyway, I'm sure there's a place you can meet her on the arrivals level of Terminal 1.


  • Ryanair connecting to TS or AZ
    May 25, 2015
    What is the minimum connecting time arriving into FCO on a domestic flight from Catania and connecting to an international flight to YYZ. Two separate tickets with checked baggage. Thank you !


    Sorry, forgot to mention Ryanair to FCO and TS or AZ to YYZ


    Bare minimum time I would recommend is 2 hours.


    Thanks ! I was thinking 3 hours would be breathable, and would ensure there is a second flight possibility inbetween, in case the first flight was delayed or canceled.


  • T5 to T1
    May 25, 2015
    Arriving from US at 8:05 on United and want to connect to Alitalia flight to Sardinia at 9:30. Too tight?


    It's possible, especially if you check in online for your Alitalia flight before you leave the US. Also, no flights arrive in T5. It is a departure only check-in building. You will arrive in the T3 Satellite.


  • Montreal-Rome-Lamezia Terme Connection
    May 22, 2015
    Arrive from Montreal T-3 @ 10:05 a., depart to Lamezia-Terme T-1 @ 11:30 a. Enough time?


    If your tickets were bought on one reservation that should be enough time, barely. If separate tickets it will be very difficult.
