  • T3 Connection Time
    Aug 24, 2016
    Hi. I have a flight on Emirates from Dubai arriving Terminal 3 at 13:25 with checked bags. I have a flight on a seperate ticket with Meridiana to Olbia leaving Terminal 3 at 15:45. Will I make this connection? Thank you!


    With checked bags that's just enough time.


    Thank you.


  • Florence connection
    Aug 22, 2016
    I'm flying in from US to Rome FCO on 9/9/16. I am going to Monterosso & instead of taking train all the way I would like to fly to Florence & take the train from there. My flight gets in from US around 9:05 AM & flight with Al Italia leaves @ 10:25. I'm assuming Al Italia is in another terminal. Will I have enough time to collect baggage & get to my flight in time. I want to use air miles so I don't want to book unless I'm sure I can make it!


    That would be very difficult on two separate reservations.

    Hi, I'm travelling from Cairo to Rio De Janeiro via Rome. I'm flying alitalia from cairo to rome and I'll be landing in terminal1, and I'll have 1 hour and 45 minutes to catch my connection from terminal 3, both flights are alitalia and on the same tickets, and I have an egyptian passport, so will I need a transit visa, and do I have enough time to catch my connection? thanks


    Your flight from Cairo will arrive in Terminal 3. All you have to do is go through security and walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Since you did not post your citizenship I will assume you are Egyptian. Egyptian citizens do not require a transit visa for an airside transit in the Schengen Area (which this is). You should have enough time.


    Thank you so much


    sorry, another question, I noticed that on my return from Rio I'll be landing in terminal 3, and my connection to Cairo will be at terminal 1 this time, so will it be the same and I won't need transit visa since I'll be going to another terminal. Thanks


    That's also incorrect, the Cairo flight should depart from Terminal 3.

    Delta DTW-FCO, arriving at 09:15 at T3 connecting to Vueling FCO-JMK at 10:40 at T5. Carry-on baggage only, separate itineraries. Is 1hr and 25mins enough time? I know that's rush hour!


    I don't think you'll make that flight. You will have to go through customs and immigration, then walk to Terminal 5, check your bags in with Vueling, and go through security. You will not make this flight.


    Vueling does not use Terminal 5. They use Terminal 3. However, I still think that's not reasonably enough time.


  • Bom --> Abu Dabbi -> JFK. Do I need visas
    Aug 18, 2016
    i just booked my cousins ticket from India to aboo dabby to Rome to JFK ( final destination). She has a green card ( US ) and Indian passport. There's far too less time now ( leaving tomorrow ) to get a schenzen visa. She'd be arriving I think in terminal 1 and leaving of terminal 5. With a green card and a onward ticket to JFK , does she still need a Schenzen visa ? is she going to have difficulties . For those 4 hrs , she'll be @ the airport but she has to change terminals ( T1 or T3 to T 5 ) . Abs no interest in leaving outside.


    Since she holds a valid US Visa she doesn't need a Schengen Transit Visa.


    Thanks Zap for that Zap reply

    We are arriving from Malta on Alitalia 0887 at 1:35 Terminal 1 then to JFK on Alitalia 0610 at 2:45 Terminal 3. Is this connection possible?


    It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Does immigration and baggage collection required at Rome before boarding Alitalia flight to Athens? if yes how much time it will take ? are terminal different ?


    You will go through passport control in Rome. Are your tickets on two separate reservations or one reservation?


    Just talked to her ..Its one long ticket but 3 different carriers. Jet airways for 1 leg ( Bom to Abo dabbi ) and Altalia from Abu Dabbi to Rom. I beleive bags will be checked in all the way till Rom


    Then she will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 1 and have to transfer her bags.


  • Connection & transit procedures

    Hello, My mom is flying to Naples from Moscow via Rome, with arrival to Rome in Terminal 3 and departure to Naples in terminal 1, both flights with Alitalia. She is concerned about transit and immigration procedures, she's got 1.5 hours in between the flights. The flights are booked on one ticket. Can you please advise what she has to do in terms of immigration and passport control and transit procedure in this case. Can she go directly from one terminal to another, she has the appropriate valid visa to travel already. Thank you!


    She will go through passport control and then through security and to her departure gate in Terminal 1. She has just enough time if the flight from Moscow is on-tine.


  • Connection Int. to Domestic
    Aug 18, 2016
    Hello, I'm flying Dubai- Rome on Emirates with US passport. Then taking alitalia/darwin flight to Pisa. Will 2.5 hours be sufficient to clear passport control, collect luggage, and get to domestic terminal gate (I assume is 1-hour check in required for domestic)? Thank you.


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I'm arriving in Rome via Delta 444 from JFK, at 10:45 a.m. I have a connection on Alitalia 896 to Cairo that leaves at 11:45 a.m. Is this enough time to make the connection? Will I need to go through immigration in FCO?


    You will not go through immigration since you are not entering the Schengen Area, you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Is an hour enough time?


    It should be enough time if the flight is on-time.

    I am arriving at FCO Rome from Malta via Alitalia then connecting at T3 with Air Croatia to Split. Will I have to claim luggage and check in again


    Are your tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations? If two separate reservations then yes, you will have to claim your bags and check them again in T3 with Air Croatia.


  • Enough time? FCO to Malta
    Aug 13, 2016
    Hi if I'm arriving at FCO at 0620 via Etihad and I have a flight on a separate ticket to Malta on AirMalta at 1010 is there enough time to catch the flight to malta?


    That should be enough time.


  • Visa
    Aug 17, 2016
    Hi, I am coming from Abu DHabi. I am landing in Rome at 7 AM and I have my connect flight to Atlanta at 12 noon. I have a US visa and Indian passport. Do I need any additional Visa in Rome. My flight is landing on Terminal 5 and next flight from terminal 3. Please suggest


    No, you do not need a transit visa since you hold a valid US Visa. Both flights will be in Terminal 3 - no flights arrive in Terminal 5.


    I have the same iterniery as mentioned here Abudhabi-Rome-Atlanta. But the e-ticket shows the arrival terminal is 3 and departure terminal is 5.


    You don't have to go to Terminal 5, you can go directly to your departure gate in Terminal 3.


    I'm arriving at Fumicino At 9.05 a.m from Chicago. Than I want to book separate ticket Rome Fumicino to Barcelona El Prat. How much time should I allow between the flights because I would first need to pick up my baggage and check in for the new flight? I would probably use Vueling or Raynair for the BCN flight. Thank you in advance.


    I wouldn't book anything before 12:00 at the absolute earliest.


  • Connecting / Baggage

    I will be flying from Atlanta to Rome on Delta 62 arriving at 7:00am Terminal 3 connecting to Delta 6619 (operated by Alitalia) at 10:00am to Naples from Terminal 1. Do I need to pick up my baggage and recheck? Also do I have to leave secured area and go through security again? Thank you!


    No you do not have to do anything with your bags. You should not have to go through security again, but may have to due to construction. Regardless you have plenty of time.
