Arriving Alitalia from Canada, connecting to Pisa (same ticket) in 1.5 hours. Will we make it?
Yes, that should be enough time.
American Airlines moved my departure up to 11:10 AM in Rome. I'm flying from Athens Greece. Connecting in Rome. My flight from Athens arrives at 10:05. My departure on American Airlines to Philadelphia is at 11:10. Can I make that connection?
I forgot to say I was flying in from Athens on Aegean airlines. I have the tickets American Airlines. No checked bags. Both going in and out of terminal three. Just different airlines. Trying to figure out if I must go through passport control question
You will go through Schengen Exit Passport control. You have just enough time if the flight from Athens is on-time.
I am a US Citizen flying Alitalia TLV>FCO 1030AM-1:25PM and connecting FCO>VCE same day 2:30-3:35PM.
The reservations are on the same ticket.

Will I clear customs & immigration in Rome or in Venice?
Also, will I have enough time to go between flights, and if so, will I arrive and depart from the same terminal in FCO?
I am booked on a through-tickets, so my bags should be sent directly to VCE.
You will go through passport control in Rome. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
thank you.
is AZ 4715 considered a domestic flight then, with no customs activity in VCE after deplaning?
I am flying American Air into FCO on Thursday, Oct. 5 arriving at 7:35 AM. I want to fly from FCO to Naples on Alitalia Flight 1263 leaving at 9:45 AM. Will I have time to get from American Air to Alitalia?
With checked bags I don't think that's really enough time.
Thanks! I thought as much but need clarification.
arriving with delta from Atlanta USA ,pick up bags and depart to Catania with Rynair
What is the exact itinerary and where are the location?
thank you
You will arrive in Terminal 3, go through Schengen Entry passport control, claim your bags and go through customs, then take your bags to the Ryanair check-in desk in Terminal 2 and go through security.
thank you very much
I arrive on a Delta flight from JFK at 10:20 am then I have a completely separate ticket to Brindisi on Alitalia 4 hours later at 2:20 pm -- do I have enough time to check a bag? My understanding is that I will have to go through customs and immigration and then go through security again.
Yes, that is enough time.
Scared traveler need more information about arriving in Fiumicino airport . She is arriving on an AIr Canada flight from Toronto and then connection to an Alitalia flight to naples. I need to give her specific instruction about how to get from point a to b . Any help will be appreciated.
She should check in for her Alitalia flight online before leaving Canada. Does she have checked bags or not? Is it two separate reservations or one reservation?
Hi, I have a flight on 26th June 2017 to Chicago USA from India and I have 20 hours hold in fco Rome , so I am very worried about transit visa . can I stay at airport or I must required transit visa ? I don't know please help me . thanks .
Due to the length of your layover I believe you need a Schengen Transit Visa.

I have a very tight connection in Rome:

-Arriving on IB5470 from Croatia at 12:45pm on a Friday (Terminal 3)
-Departing to Thailand on TG945 at 1:55pm same day (Terminal 3)

Given that I arrive/depart at the same terminal and will not have any checked bags, I thought I could make it. Is it possible? What can I do in advance to make sure things go smoothly (check in online, call the airline, memorize terminal layout)? Or is there no chance and I should rebook?
Forgot to mention these are two separate bookings
Yes, that should work without checked bags. Just go to the Thai transfer desk once you arrive in Rome if you can't check in online.
Thanks! I remember on arrival seeing a transfer desk with Alita on the right hand side, and a security line on the left hand side. Is the Thai transfer desk the same as the Alita desk or is it past the security point?
Maybe a better way of asking this question - where exactly is the Thai transfer desk?
How long does it take to get bags from Lufthansa flight (US to Frankfurt to Rome) and recheck on Alitalia (Lameiza Termi) (two separate tickets)? Do I have to go through security again in Rome or can I just recheck bags on Alitalia after immigration and customs without going through security again? I want to book an Alitalia flight two hours after the Lufthanza flight arrives. Both flights arrive/depart terminal 1.
You will have to go through security again. I'd want at least 2 hours.
