  • YYZ to PMO Via Air Canada with connection on Alitalia
    May 12, 2016

    Arriving FCO on Air Canada at 9:35am, have connecting flight on AZ to PMO at 11:10am. Ticket was booked completely through Air Canada. they told me that if I miss my connection to PMO they will book me and family on the next flight to PMO?? Just wondering if you think I have enough time between connections??? Or if anyone has done this before?

     

    Yes, that is correct. You should have just enough time.

     

    I will have to go through passport control, claim baggage, clear customs and recheck baggage with Alitalia correct?

     

    Yes, you will also have to go through security.

    I am arriving at FCO from Brindisi on Alitalia into Terminal 1 or 3 at 1PM, can I make a 3:20PM Delta flight out of Terminal 5 to the US. Yes I have a checked bag.

     

    I think that would be barely enough time if everything went perfectly.

    I will arrive Ukraine International Airlines Kiev Rome at 12:00 and have Alitalia flight to Cagliary at 13:05. Two separate tickets. Is it enough time get the next flight?

     

    No, I don't think that's enough time.

    am arriving to FCO via United from the U.S. At 7:45am. Would I have enough time to make a 10:00am connection to Catania via Alitalia?

     

    That should be just about enough time.

     

  • BCN -> FCO; FCO -> LYS

    Hi, I'll have a 50min transit at FCO, arriving at 20.05 with vueling and leaving at 20.55 with Easyjet on Saturday, May, 21st. So I'm guessing I'll have to transit between T2 and T3. I'll have carry-on only, and a European passport. Do you think that's enough time? Will I have to pass through security? Thanks a lot for your help

     

    Precision: both are domestic flights BCN->FCO, arrival 20.05 FCO->LYS, departure 20.55

    HEY SO IM ARRIVING AT FCO FROM DELTA AT 1045 AND I HAVE A CONNECTION TO JTR WITH VUELING AT 1210 I WAS WONDERING IF THIS IS ENOUGH TIME BECAUSE I KNOW WE HAVE TO GO THRU IMMIGRATION AND THEN SECURITY .. THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT

     

    With checked baggage I definitely don't think that is enough time.

     

    I am arriving to FCO via United from the U.S. At 7:45am. Would I have enough time to make a 10:40am connection to Catania via Alitalia?

     

    I DONT HAVE TO CHECK ANY BAGS. ALSO AFTER CLEARING IMMIGRATION DO I HAVE TO GO THRU SECURITY AGAIN??

     

    Ischeduled to arrive FCO on Alitalia from Chicago and connect in 2 hrs to continue onto Alitalia flight to Bari. Am I better off hoping our checked bags get staff transferred through in time for the Bari flight, or should I cpack less anf do carry on only? Thanks for your help - a lot.

    I will be flying into FCO at 9:30 am on Turkish Airlines from Istanbul. If I want to catch an Alitalia flight to Pisa at 10:10am, is there any chance of that happening? I've flown through FCO before, but I forget if I would have to clear passport control/customs before I could catch the Alitalia flight. Thanks!

     

    BTW, I will only have carry on (backpack) coming from Istanbul, but will probably have to check it to get on the Pisa flight.

     

    Yes, you will have to go through passport control and change terminals. That connection would be pretty much impossible.

    we arrive in Rome from Singapore (with Singapore airlines business class) end of June @ 8:40am with checked luggage. Will we have enough time to make our flight same day with Aegean Airlines @ 10:50am. same terminal. separate bookings. Prefer the 10:50 flight over the 17:25 flight time as 9 hours transit in rome is to long. Otherwise there is a flight with Blue Panorama but I can't find any reviews on their reliability.

     

    Considering you're business class and off first. You can probably make the 10:50 AM flight as long as your bags come out reasonably quickly. Although it's not without some risk.

     

  • Is 1h 30m enough time to catch a flight to Ibiza?

    Hi! I am flying from London into Madrid Terminal 1 at 10am and want to catch a flight to Ibiza with Vueling at 11:30AM departing from T4. Carry on only. Will I have enough time to clear security, get to T4 and catch the 11:30am flight??

     

    The flight from London to Madrid is with Ryanair. Thank you!

     

    First of all, you posted this in the Rome airport forum, but I want to confirm that you are actually connecting in Madrid, correct? I think you would have barely enough time if you are already checked in for your Vueling flight and the Ryanair flight is on-time.

     

    I'm so sorry I thought I selected Madrid in the dropdown. Yes, connecting in Madrid. Thank you for your help.

    I arrive terminal 3 on air canada at 10:45 with luggage and have a seperate Vueling departure also terminal 3 at 13:55.. I have a EU passport, are there seperate security/customs lines for EU nationals? Regards

     

    There are separate passport control lines for passengers with EU passports. You won't have to go through security unless you have checked bags to transfer between airlines. Check in for your Vueling flight online before you leave Canada.

     

    I do have checked bags but the Vueling ticket is disticnct and seperate from the air canada so I guess I have to pick up luggage from carousel and go back upstairs to Vueling check in to give them my bags? Will I have enought time? Kind regards

     

    You should still have enough time.

     

  • Rome FCO Sufficient Time??

    I will be arriving United Airlines at 7:45AM. NO checked luggage I will have carry on. I have an Alitalia flight at 10:00AM separate ticket. Do you think I have enough time to clear customs and check in for my next flight? I think I go from terminal 3 to terminal 1, Thanks for your help.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You can likely check in for your Alitalia flight online before you leave the US.

     

    Do you know how long of a walk from T! to T3 ?

     

    15-20 minutes, not including the time you will spend going through passport control.

     

    I probably should of originally said I was coming from the USA to FCO on United and than FCO to Naples on Alitalia. Separate tickets. Can I stay airside and avoid immigration and just go through passport control. Thanks.

     

  • Is 1 hr. 25 min. enough between terminal 1 to 5?

    We will be flying Delta in from Palermo at 11:20 to Terminal 1 at FCO and our plane departs to USA on Delta at 12:45. Is this enough time. Carry-on only.

     

    We are departing from Terminal 5

     

    If both tickets are on the same itinerary you can go directly to your departure gate in Terminal 3. If it's two separate itineraries, since you have no checked bags I think you still have enough time to take the shuttle to T5 and go through security there if you have to.

     

    Thank you! We don't fly overseas that often and it seems confusing about needing to go to a terminal that one wouldn't fly out of.

     

    Only Rome has a setup like that. Leave it to the Italians.

     

    If you are on 2 separate PNR but have an onward boarding boats (e.g. to the US) is it still necessary to exit security?

     

  • Phl AA connecting in Rome for Palermo on Vueling

    I will be traveling to Rome on AA arriving at 9:15 and then taking Vueling flight to Palermo departing at 1pm. Both flights were booked through American on one reservation. Will I have to go through passport control, pick up my bags and recheck them with Vueling? According to AA, the bags will be checked to go straight through to Palermo. They also told me that I'd be arriving in Terminal 5, and departing from terminal 3. Is this true?

     

    You will have to go through passport control but you shouldn't have to do anything with your bags. You will not arrive in Terminal 5 - no flights arrive there. Both flights will be in Terminal 3.

     

    Thank you!

     

    Another question: Will AA give me boarding passes for the connecting flight on Vueling or will I have to check in with Vueling?

     

    AA should be able to issue both boarding passes.

     

    Thank you!

    ZAP I just want to make certain that United arrives into terminal 3. I am flying standby in and looking to buy a confirmed ticket out and want to make sure I can make the connection. According to United flifo it says Terminal 1. My wife and I are on US passports carry on only and looking at connecting to Vueling, out of T3 i believe to Thira, but it will be a 1hr 15 min connection. Also, do we have to get on a bus after deplaning? I have read others talk about a bus. Thanks for your helo I just want to make absolutley sure.

     

    The flifo is referring to the departure terminal on your flight into Rome. You should not have to get on a bus upon arriving, usually United flights use the jetways, but there's no guarantee. The Vueling flight will board via a bus. You have a very difficult connection.

     

    Thank you. Are you aware If I am checked in already will i have to go through security again or just passport control?

     

    You should only have to go through passport control.
