  • meeting another flightg
    Mar 9, 2013
    I will be arriving from US-United, my sister will be arriving Singapore Air from Australia , will we be arriving in same terminal if not where is good place to meet


  • HOw Much time to leave between flights?
    Feb 10, 2013
    I fly from TUrin to FCO, then USAIR to the US. I am trying to decide how much time to leave between the arrival from Turin and Departure to US? Thank you


    First find out if your departing airline from Turin will transfer your bags to US Airways & which boarding area they arrive at - if not, you would have to claim your bags and check them in with US Airways. Terminal 5 with boarding area G is for US flights. T5 can only be accessed from T3 via shuttle bus. All other terminals are connected at their boarding areas. I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • how to meet?
    Jan 31, 2013
    My mother will be arriving at terminal 5 and we will be arriving at terminal 3. Where is the best place for us to meet?


    At FCO, after passport control at Terminal 5, take the shuttle bus outside to Terminal 3. Meet your mother at T3's arrivals level, in front of the information counter.

    How long does it atke to go from Terminal 5 (US arriving on American) to Terminal 1 (Alitalia) domestic. I will have 2 1/2 hours


    I think 30 to 45m is enough


    At FCO, after going through passport clearance, you have a choice of using the special shuttle bus at T5 to T3, then walk past the control tower and Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 (T1 & T2 are connected at Arrivals). OR take the free shuttles running between all terminals and carparks daily, every 15 mins; (during 1am-4am you can also request such shuttle by using the intercom situated at every shuttle stop.) You have enough time.




  • Can I make this flight??
    Feb 3, 2013
    I will arrive at FCO at 12:45 from London. Will I have enough time to take a flight at 3pm to Athens and which terminals will I be at? Thanks


    I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text. Your ticket, boarding pass and on arrival the overhead screens should indicate which of Terminals 1, 2 or 3 you arrive at/ depart from. (When connecting from gate to gate, follow signs to "Boarding Area" (gates B through H). All boarding areas are inter-connected, except Terminal 5's boarding area G, which needs a shuttle. You have enough time.


    Thanks. I just wanted to make sure before I booked it. I wont get my boarding pass until later. I forgot to post that I'm leaving in June.


  • Delta FCO/United FCO
    Jan 29, 2013
    We are arriving FCO on two seperate airlines. Both arrive within ten minutes of each other. We will be headed to Testacio, Rome - not sure if by train or bus. Any recommendations what is the least expensive? Also where to meet once we arrive at FCO?


    Both airlines Delta & United use Terminal 5 at FCO. You may want to meet in front of the information counter in the Arrivals area, where you also can get some transportation information. For more information open & scroll down to "To get from the Airport to your destination"; also click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Delta to FCO, Meridiana to Olbia
    Jan 27, 2013
    I arrive to FCO on Delta at 7:30 a.m. and must connect to Meridiana Flight to Olbia at 10:30a.m. Can you give me directions to make the connection? Thank you.


    At FCO Delta arrives at Terminal 5 where you need to go through passport check and may need to pick up your bags if Delta does not transfer bags to Meridian, which uses Terminal 2. You have two options to get to T2: (a) take the free shuttle bus outside running between terminals and carparks every 15 mins., or (b) take the special shuttle to T3 and walk over to T2 (the control tower is between them. You have plenty of time.


  • Meeting my son arriving from Paris

    I am flying from Washington, DC to FCO and my son is connecting in Paris and flying via Air France to Rome. I arrive earlier than him. Can you please suggest a meeting place since we are taking train together for the cruise port.Thank you., I


    At FCO, Air France will arrive at Terminal 1. You can meet him near the information counter in the Arrivals Hall.


  • Shuttle Service
    Jan 20, 2013
    Do I need to take the shuttle service between T3 and T1 for a connection. Arriving at t3 and departing t1


    At FCO T1 has Boarding area B & T3 Boarding areas D & H. On arrival at T1 follow signs to "Boarding Area D or H (your boarding pass and the overhead screens should indicate flight & gate numbers) - all boarding areas, except G, a inter-connected. You can also take the shuttle departing every 15 mins by requeting service via intercom at every shuttle stop.


  • Connection Time
    Jan 19, 2013
    I will be traveling .on Alitalia from LAX to FCO and then a connecting flight on the same airline to Naples. I have one hour for transfer. Is that enough time


    At FCO you will arrive at T3 and depart from T1. ( FCO's Terminals 1 & 2 are joined and share the Arrivals level; between Terminals 2 & 3 is the air control tower.) After going through passport check and customs clearance, then look for the sign to "Boarding Area B" (gates B1-B30). You have sufficient time.


  • Would we have enough time??
    Jan 16, 2013
    We are thinking about taking a flight from Marseille to Rome, then from Rome to Lamenzie Terme. Our flight from Marseille would arrives at 12:25 and our flight to Lamenzie would leave at 13:15. From what I can find, both flights are in and out of T1. Do you think that we would have enough time to make our flight to Lamenzie? Thanks...


    50 mins layover at FCO should suffice for your transfer within T1.


  • transfer
    Jan 11, 2013
    I am arriving in Terminal 2 on Easyjet from Venice and will catch another flight on Air Canada in Terminal 3. I purchased the tickets separately, so I think that I will need to collect my luggage. I have an hour and a half to make the connection. Will I be able to make that connection?


    At T2 you will need to go through passport check and pick up your bags. The domestic arrivals level of T1 shares the arrivals level of T2. At T2 you need to take the escalator to the departure level, check in your bag, go through security check and head for Boarding Area C (gates C1-16) - your time will suffice.


  • Connection time for May/June 2013
    Jan 9, 2013
    I will be traveling on Alitalia from JFK to FCO on 5/27 and then connecting to NAP. I will have 1 hour 45 minutes to make this connection and go through immigration/passport check. Will that be enough time to make my connection?


    Your transfer time should suffice. Alitalia uses Terminals 1 & 3. At FCO, Terminals 1 & 2 are joined and share the Arrivals level; between Terminals 2 & 3 is the air control tower. T1 is your connecting terminal (domestic & Schengen flights only) and has Boarding Area B with B gates 1 through 30.


  • Transfer T1 to T3 FCO
    Dec 28, 2012
    My daughter is arriving Alitalia into T1, has to collect her luggage as it cannot be booked through, then departing T3 with Emirates for flight to Australia. Can you please advise how she should best go about this to get to terminal 3 as she is an unseasoned traveller.


    On arrival at FCO at T1, she needs to go down to the baggage claim level, retrieve bags, exit terminal and take the free shuttle bus running every 15mins between terminals & parking lots. At Terminal 3 she needs to check in her bag with Emirates and proceed to security check and connecting gate (overhead screens will indicate flight number & gate). T3 has Boarding areas D & H (gates D1-10, & H6-19).


  • T3 to T2 Connection,
    Dec 21, 2012
    Arrive T3 Air Croatia 2 hrs to connect to Easyjet T2. Is 2 hrs enough time? Is this a "Schengan or Non Schengan" connection.


    Schengen means a country which participated in the Schengen agreement (most European countries did). As non-Schengen you need to go through passport check and may have to get your bags inspected. Follow signs to 'Boarding Area' C (Terminal 2's C gates C1-C7 & C3-C16)- boarding areas are interconnected. You have plenty of time.
