  • Connecting flight from Catania to CFO return us
    Jun 22, 2014
    When we arrive at FCO on Alitalia , do we get our bags, then proceed to customs and do VAT refund, or what is the right protocol?


    At FCO, 'Non-Schengen'(foreign) flights arrive at Terminal 3, at either Gates G or H. From there, passengers go through immigration (passport control) and - if transferring to another flight - proceed to their connecting terminal & gate - in your case Terminal 1, Boarding Area B. A shuttle bus connects the two terminals.


    Actually you can easily walk to T1 after clearing Schengen immigration in T3.


    That is below the minimum connection time for an International->domestic connection at ORD. You will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US customs, then re-check your bags with United, then you have to take the ATS train from T5 to T2 and go through security and to your departure gate. It's possible to make the connection in 80 minutes, but there is almost no wiggle room for delays, thus why it's below the MCT.


    What is the minimum connection time in my condition? I am concerned now....will I make it if I rush? :P


    The minimum connection time is 90 minutes.


  • Toronto to Rome to Palermo
    Jun 18, 2014
    We are arriving at T3 in Rome from Toronto and we have 1 hr and 20 minutes catch to our flight to Palermo at T1. We only have carryons. Can we walk (or run) to T1 inside the gates (without having to exit and go through security again)?


  • Nice to Rome to Toronto Alitalia

    Will be flying with checked bags, do we need to pick up bags in rome and go through customs or will they transfer than for us? All flights are on Alitalia. We have 2 hours 10 minutes between flights. Not sur if it is in the same terminal.


    Walk through the parking garage, it's the fastest way.


  • LAX - Venice with Rome plane change
    Jun 19, 2014
    Ticketed through Delta but on Alitalia from LAX to Rome Terminal 3 at 1:15pm, Rome to Venice flight one hour later at 2:35pm in Terminal 1. Bags are checked through to Venice. Will this be a problem? It was how Alitalia offered the flight. Thanks!


    Hah, no, you do not have to show a soccer ticket in order to board an airline flight.


  • NEED HELP!!! Do I have enough time from T3 to T1??
    Jun 10, 2014
    Hello, I am traveling to Brindisi from Colombia next August. I will travel from Bogota to Lisboa on TAP Airlines where I will go through Shenghen immigration and will take my first connection to Rome also with TAP. I will arrive at 18.40 in Terminal 3 and will only have a carry on bag. I plan to take the 19.30 Alitalia flight to Brindisi departing from Terminal 1. If I only have a carry on bag, come from Lisboa and have my FCO - BDS boarding ticket from the web check in, do i have to go through any security checkpoint from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 or can I just go straight to the gate of the Alitalia flight? I if don't take the 19.30 flight I have to wait 2 hours. Thank you for your information.


  • Enough time?
    Jun 10, 2014
    I arrive at Terminal 3 (Delta Airlines from Detroit) at 8:45 AM and depart Terminal 1 at 10:20 AM (Alitalia ticketed through Delta). Will I have to go through security again? Will I make it?


  • Enough Time
    Jun 8, 2014
    Connecting through FCO in August. Arriving at 1105am via Easy Jet from Mykonos, then connecting to Start Alliance trip (FCO-FRA-SFO). My Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt leaves at 1325pm. Do I need to collect luggage and go through customs? Is this enough time between flights?


  • Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 in 55 minutes
    Jun 13, 2014
    I have booked flights with Alitalia from Vienna/Austria (VIE) to New York City/USA (JFK) via Rome (FCO). Will arrive in FCO Terminal 1 with Alitalia AZ 0189 on saturday 28th june at 13:50 and my connecting flight is Alitalia AZ 0610 from Terminal 3 at 14:45. There are only 55 minutes! Is that possible?


    You have to go through a brief Schengen exit passport check and then security at your departure gate. 1 hr 45 minutes should be plenty of time.


  • Fastest way from Terminal 1 to Terminal 5
    Jun 6, 2014
    I have 2 hours 15 minutes between flights, arriving in T1 and departing from T5 without checked bags. Is the only way to go by walking from T1 to the shuttle stop at T3 and then taking the shuttle to T5? Does the T5 shuttle pick up at T1? Is it possible to just take a taxi from T1 to T5 in a couple of minutes, or will they not do that?

  • Split, Croatia to Istanbul via Rome FCO
    Jun 4, 2014
    Hi! We're flying from Split to Istanbul with a crazy short layover in Rome of only 50 minutes. Just wondering if that's insane or we should be ok. No bags, just carry on. Also wondering if we need to go through security/customs?


  • Florence to Rome (Alitalia)-Rome to Detroit (Delta)
    Jun 4, 2014
    I am flying Florence to Rome arriving into FCO Terminal 1 without checked baggage. I then fly 2 hours later Rome to Detroit from Terminal 3 Gate G on Delta with a separate ticket. Do I have to exit Terminal 1 and go all the way to Terminal 5 to check in, or can I go directly from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 without going through security again?


  • Venice to Rome, Rome to Los Angeles layover
    Jun 4, 2014
    We fly from Venice to Rome and have an 1 hour and 15 minute layover before a flight to Los Angeles. Both flights are Alitalia, but different terminals, do we have enough time?


  • Terminals?
    Jun 8, 2014
    I am flying Qantas codeshare Emirates arriving in Rome at 13.15hrs and departing with Alitalia to Lamezia at 16.40hrs. Will my flight arrive at Terminal 3 and do I have sufficient time for the transfer


    Terminal 2 to Terminal 3.


    You will have to collect your luggage as Easyjet does not check bags through to other airlines. However, there will be no customs or immigration in Rome as both Italy and Greece are within Schengen. You will go through US Immigration and Customs when you get to SFO. You should have enough time.
