  • 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

    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.

  • Time between flights
    Sep 11, 2014
    I am arriving from Doha(Qatar Airlines) at 18h50 and need to catch another Alitalia flight to Catania at 20h30 , Is this enough time to get between terminals?


    Yes, that should be enough time.

  • Terminal 3 to 5 connection
    Sep 9, 2014
    I recently searched the internet prior to my connection in Rome (FCO) from terminal 3 to terminal 5. There is so much misleading information that I feel my summary might be helpful. My trip took me from Athens on Aegean Airlines to Rome and then continuing on US Airways to Philadelphia. I was arriving in Terminal 3 and told that all flights depart from US from Terminal 5. Some reports on here suggested 3-4 hours needed for the transfer. First of all, if you are have checked your bags ALL the way to your final destination at the origin (My bad was tagged to PHL in Athens), and you have a boarding pass for your connecting flight in Rome, you DO NOT NEED TO EVER ENTER TERMINAL 5. Terminal 5 is only for passengers who originate in Rome. When I landed in Terminal 3, I followed the signs for connecting flights which took me to G gates where my flight for US departs. Connecting from T3 to T5 took me about 20 minutes. I hope this is helpful.


    Yes, that is correctt. Thank you for your experience.


    I arrived from Moscow to FCO. I have a connection to Atlanta in the morning. I checked my bag all the way to ATL. So, I went through a security check, but not passport control. Did you have to go through passport control when you were transiting? I am sitting near the H gates now, waiting for the morning. I am a bit confused. I already have my boarding pass for the Delta flight.


  • terminal 1 to terminal 3
    Sep 8, 2014
    any chance a 40 minutes is enough time if we're arriving from Malta in terminal 1 & flying out of terminal 1 to Toronto? it makes me very nervous but others in my party seem to think it can be done.


    That is very risky. Flight to Toronto will actually be from Terminal 3.


  • terminal 3 to terminal 1 rome Airport
    Sep 5, 2014
    I am flying to Rome on Alitalia And transferring to a Alitalia flight to Venice. I have about an hour and fifteen minutes to make the connection. Is that enough time? What is the easiest way to get from one flight yo the other. Our bags will be checked through


    Just follow the signs to T1 upon arrival. You will go through Schengen passport control on your route.


  • Boston - FCO - VCE on Alitalia Connection Time
    Sep 4, 2014
    We are planning to fly from Boston to FCO on Alitalia, connecting to VCE. The layover is 1 hr. 55 minutes. Is that likely to be sufficient?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Delta from ATL to Meridiana FCO-OLB Terminal 3 How much time?
    Sep 4, 2014
    Arriving on Delta at 7:30 AM at FCO. Will it be possible to catch a Meridiana flight to Olbia at 8:50? I'm booked on a later flight but since it's the same terminal I'm hoping to get the earlier flight.


    It should be possible if you don't have checked bags. Might be difficult with checked bags since you'd have to have them moved.


    Thank you, very helpful site. I'm not checking a bag so I should make it.


  • time needed to connect US-Rome-Palermo-- different airlines
    Sep 4, 2014
    How much time will we need to connect from US flight to Rome to Vueling to Palermo-- and which terminals?


    You will both arrive in and depart from Terminal 3. If you have checked baggage I'd want a minimum of 2 hr 30 minutes between flights. Without checked baggage it may be doable in 90 minutes if you get your Vueling boarding pass online before leaving the US.


    what about if we take another carrier to palermo, eg ryan air/iberia? thanks


    Iberia doesn't fly from Rome to Palermo. RyanAir would require the same amount of time.


    so how long does it take to get thru customs and immigration after landing from Boston? Thanks for help.


    Probably 30-45 mins.
