  • meeting up arriving from two places

    My Wife and I are meeting up In Rome, She is arriving on US Airways IDK which terminal, but I am arriving from on Lufthansa at terminal 3, where will be a good place to meet up, our flights both arrive at approx. the same time, should we both clear customs first and meet after, or before and go through together?

     

    You will both arrive in Terminal 3. If you're on lufthansa you won't go through immigration as Germany is in Schengen. So you'll want to meet your wife after she exits immigration.

     

    thanks this helps

    I am scheduled to arrive from Doha at FCO by Qatar Airways and take the connecting Alitalia Flight from T1 to Turino, Considering that its my first trip to Italy The time between the flights is 3 hrs. Do you think its enough.

     

    Your Qatar Airways flight will arrive in Terminal 3, not Terminal 2. You should have enough time.

     

    Thanks,

     

  • Check through baggage and Immigration

    We are going to fly from Washington DC Dulles Airport through FCO (by United UA966), continuing to Singapore Changi airport (by Singapore airlines SQ365). We have about 2.5 hours transit time. Our questions are: Can the luggage be checked through to Singapore (both UA and SQ are star alliance)? We are Indonesian Nationality, do we have to have a Schengen visa for passing through Rome FCO airport? Appreciate any response.

     

    If your tickets were bought on the same reservation, yes, your bags can be checked through. I believe you will need a schengen visa as I do not believe FCO has a sterile non-schengen connection area like some European airports.

     

    Indeed your UA & SQ are members of the Star Alliance. However, as a non-Schengen arrival at FCO (UA is in Terminal 5 - designated for US & Israel flights) you need to go through passport check before proceeding via special shuttle to your connecting SQ flight at Terminal 3. T3 has Boarding Areas D (gates D1-10) and Area H (gates H6-19). You have plenty of time for transfer.

     

    Your arrival will be processed in Terminal 3 - you don't have to take any shuttle. No arriving flights use Terminal 5.

     

    Thank you for your reminder about tickets have to reserved/issued together. We will check with UA & SQ.

    I am flying from Frankfurt to FCO on Luftansa flight (booked through United) that arrives ar 2:05pm. On a separate ticket, I will by flying to Olbia on Meridiana. I'll have to check a bag for the Olbia flight. Will I have time to go through the passport check, customs, and check my luggage with Meridiana in order to make a 4:45 flight to Olbia? Or should I book a later flight to Olbia at 6:15pm? (I haven't booked that flight yet.) Can someone describe what I will need to do when I arrive at FCO? I would greatly appreciate any advice.

     

    You will not have to go through any passport control or customs in FCO as both Germany and Italy are in Schengen. You will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 1. The best way to get between these terminal is probably to walk, but it will be a bit of a long walk. You should have enough time assuming your bags come out reasonably quickly. However, if you want to be safe, book the later flight. It's Italy. Things move at a slower pace there.

     

    Sorry, I forgot to mention I start my flight from San Francisco, then connect in Frankfurt to FCO. So I will have to go through passport and customs at FCO, as I originated the trip from the US, right? Or will I have to do that in Frankfurt when I land before connecting to FCO? Thanks again for your advise!

     

    You will go through EU immigration in Frankfurt.

     

  • Connection time Delta Alitalia at FCO

    We are flying from Detroit to Rome and have 3 hours before an Alitalia flight to Sardinia. Is that enough time to clear customs and claim luggage? Should we try to take carry on luggage for our 2. week trip?

     

    Delta & Alitalia both belong to the Skyteam Alliance - your bags will automatically be transferred. As to baggage vs. carry-on: it's a matter of paying baggage fees or buying what you need in Sardinia & only take carry-on. Alitalia uses Terminals 1 (Boarding Area B) and Terminal 3 (Boarding Areas D & H) with corresponding gates. Delta arrives at Terminal 5, where you go through special security checks & passport control. A shuttle bus runs between T5 and T3, and you can connect to T1's Boarding Area B inside security. You have plenty of time.

     

    Sumay is incorrecy. Your Delta flight will ARRIVE in Terminal 3, not Terminal 5 (terminal 5 is departure only). You won't have to pay baggage fees on your international itinerary.

    Only US airlines use T5 in FCO. Alitalia flights to the US use terminal 3.

    Hello, we are flying to ATL on Delta, connecting from another inbound filght from T3. Connection time between the flights is 1h 10 min. Is this going to be enough time for transfer? Thanks

     

    When arriving at Terminal 3 of FCO, you need to take the shuttle to Terminal 5's Boarding Area G; you have enough time. Signs will guide you.

     

  • US Airways flight connecting to Air Malt

    Hello, I am travelling from North Carolina on US Airways arriving at 9:30 Terminal 3. My next flight is on Air Malta departing at 11:30 am. These are booked as separate flights and not connections. I have to pick up luggage that I will check. Do I have enough time to go through security, pick up luggage, and get my boarding pass to be on the Air Malta flight at 11:30 am?

     

    Probably enough time if your flight in is on-time and your bags come out at a reasonable time.

     

    I just found out my flight departs for Malta at 11:00 a.m. This gives me only 1 1/2 hours. Still enough time

     

  • Help for dropping off at terminals Pleas

    Hello, we have flights for my daughter to fly on Aitalia to Milan at 9am with my husband and myself returning to the US at 9:40am on Delta the same day. We'd very much like to get her checked in and to her gate before we go do the same. How long does it take to transfer between the necessary terminals and will it be a real hassle if we have several suitcases? We appriecate any recommnedations. Thank you!

     

    You will not be able to go to her gate with her. I suggest you do your goodbyes when you drop her at Terminal 1 and then make your way to terminal 5. You will have to check in and go through special security procedures in T5 so you should not delay. After that you will be bussed to the Terminal 3 satellite for your departure.

    Flying into FCO T3 with Air Malta at 10.00 with a connecting flight at 11.00 to Athens with Aegean Airlines also T3. My agent says that as our luggage will be transferred straight to the connecting flight we will have enough time to transfer ourselves (providing the incoming flight is on time) , is this true ?

     

    Malta, Italy, and Greece are all in the Schengen zone so you won't have to go through any immigration procedures and Air Malta and Aegean do have an interline baggage agreement, so your agent is correct.

     

    I should have added that we are from Australia , will this affect the immigration procedure as we have never heard of the Schengen zone also is 1 hour enough time to catch the connecting flight to Athens ?

    We are flying into FCO from Des Moines, Ia - connecting thru Munich. My friend will arrive on an Easyjet flight from Gatwick. What terminals will we arrive at - and what's the best way to meet up. The Easyjet flight arrives 1 hr later

     

    EasyJet is using Terminal 2 of FCO. Best place to meet: at Information counter at Arrivals Hall. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/fco; then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Hi We arrive at terminal 3 from Hong Kong at 7.05am and need to transfer to an Air Italia flight to Cagliari, Sardinia departing at 9.20am (not sure which terminal). Do we have enough time to clear customs, collect baggage and then get to other flight or should we book a later flight?

     

    I believe you're on Alitalia, not "Air Italia". That flight will leave from Terminal 1. I think you will have enough time and if you miss your connection, they have other flights to Cagliari - I'd stay with the one you have.

     

  • Transfer advice, between terminals 2 & 1

    On Wed 24 July 2013 I land at FCO Terminal 2 from Easyjet flight ex Split, Croatia, arriving at 7.40pm. I next fly FCO to Venice, from Terminal 1 with Alitalia, at 9.40p,. As a non-Schengen arrival will 2 hrs suffice for passport & customs checks & transfer & new check-in? Is walking time a serious factor?

     

    At FCO, T2 is connected at the arrivals level to T1. On arrival at T2 after going through non-Schengen passport control, proceed to T1 (follow signs), go up to the departures level, go through security check and on to of T1's Boarding Area B with gates 1-30.

     

    Thanks, that's a big help.
