  • best meeting place at the airport?
    Sep 24, 2015
    Several people meeting up at the FCO airport, all arriving on different flights from different places. A van will pick us up to take us to our destination, north of Rome. Was going to have him meet us at the Meeting Place in Terminal 3. But wondering, since the fire, if it would be safer to meet at the train station? Thoughts?


  • Terminal match
    Sep 23, 2015
    I am arriving by train at 10-00 am will I have sufficient time to catch a flight leaving from terminal 5 at 12-00 am?


    Yes, that should be enough time.

    I am flying into terminal 5 and have to meet friends at Hertz car drop off, which looks like is between terminals 4 and 3. How do I get there from terminal 5?


    FCO has no Terminal 4. There is a bus from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3.


  • From US through Rome to TLV
    Sep 4, 2015
    We are traveling from the US through Rome to TLV. It is all on one ticket. When we arrive in Rome, will we have to claim our bags, go through customs, and then check in again? Or, will the bags go straight through to TLV and we can go straight to the next gate?


    If both flights are on Alitalia you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, no customs or anything with your bags required. There will be extra security at the gate because Israel, but it shouldn't slow you down.


  • Meeting Area for passengers arriving at Terminal 1 and 3?
    Aug 29, 2015
    My daughter is flying in to Terminal 1 on Air France from Paris. I am flying in to Terminal 3 on Air Transat from Toronto, Canada. Our flights should land 15 minutes apart. Where is the best place to find each other? We have a private shuttle picking us up from the Main Terminal Hall - where is that? Thanks


  • Hilton Garden Inn Hotel shuttle
    Aug 22, 2015
    I understand to get to this hotel one must use the Long Term Parking shuttle. If that is correct, is the shuttle bus clearly marked and are there pick-up points at T3?


  • Has anyone used an atm in terminal 3 lately? Where is it located?
    Jul 31, 2015
    Will be trying to get euros upon arrival at fco and hoping to find .d'italia at airport.


    Most of Terminal 3 is currently closed. There is probably an ATM either in Terminal 1 or in the airport train station.


  • meeting someone on different flight
    Jul 29, 2015
    we are arrivingfrom USA on american airlines and elderly relatives are arriving on alitalia. where can we meet them? will we arrive at same terminal? same customs area? can we easily meet outside customs?


    The airport is a mess right now, I would suggest meeting in the airport train station to get out of the mess a bit.


  • Meeting someone at gate from another flight
    Jul 4, 2015
    i am flying from IAD to FCO on UAL 42 arriving Monday morning 6 JUL at around 8 am. A friend is coming in from CLT to FCO on USAIR 720 arriving 1-2 hours later. Can I wait for her at her gate also in Terminal 3 or will I be compelled to go directly to customs? We both hold US passports.


    You need to go through passport control, claim your bags and get out. The airport is nearly half closed right now and overcrowded. You'll need to meet her somewhere outside the airport terminal.


  • arriving T5, 3hr 50 min stopover, departing T3
    Jun 22, 2015
    how do you get from T5 to T3? looks like a separate building? 3.50 seems long enough to me, any advice?


    Under normal circumstances flights do not arrive in T5. It is a check-in/security building. However, Rome airport is a mess right now and most of Terminal 3 is closed due to a fire. If you are traveling soon there's no way to predict where your flights will arrive and depart.


  • Arriving in Rome 6/28 om American Airlines
    Jun 22, 2015
    What terminal will I arrive at 9:45am? What if customs does not pass my passport? How long will it take to get through baggage and customs so that I can connect to my pick up driver? Thanks.


    If you are traveling on a US Passport they will let you in. It's not exactly clear where you will arrive or how long it will take because right now half of the airport is closed due to a fire. It is a mess.


  • Delta arrivals/Alitalia Departures given Terminal Reductions
    Jun 12, 2015
    I am seeing that there FCO will be scaling back in the wake of the fire. We are scheduled to arrive from DTW the morning of June 13, connection to an Alitalia flight to SUF the afternoon of June 13. Any predictions or advice? https://www.adr.it/web/aeroporti-di-roma-en-/viewer?p_p_id=3_WAR_newsportlet&p_p_lifecycle=0&p_p_state=normal&p_p_mode=view&p_p_col_id=_118_INSTANCE_m9cQJlm3gK2H__column-2&p_p_col_count=1&_3_WAR_newsportlet_jspPage=%2Fhtml%2Fnews%2Fdetails.jsp&_3_WAR_newsportlet_nid=6002309&_3_WAR_newsportlet_redirect=%2Fweb%2Faeroporti-di-roma-en-%2Fpax-fco-fiumicino


    Arrivals won't really be affected, nor will your departure to SUF out of Terminal 1. It looks like what they will be doing is having some of the flights that normally depart from Terminal 3 depart from Terminal 2 and 5 using buses to take passengers to the planes.


  • Layover
    Jun 7, 2015
    I'll be flying in late june from Casablanca, Morocco to Venise Marco polo with a layover time of 1:15h in FCO. Is it doable ? since it's an international flight


    It is possible if both tickets were purchased together on the same reservation.


  • Time to get through security
    Jun 4, 2015
    About how long would it take to get through security for a 4:55 pm flight on Vueling to Turin?
