Supposed to be flying in that morning via Aer Lingus from Dublin with afternoon departure to Catania via Alitalia. Does anyone have any info to share about likelihood, alternatives, etc? Will any personnel at the airpot be working, for luggage collection, etc.? Thanks.
I looked on the map for FCO T3 and it doesn't show the long term luggage storage area. Where is the luggage storage exactly? We have a very short layover and I'd like to have a plan. Thanks!
MY DAUGHTER IS FLYING IN TO ROME FROM CLT AND ARRIVING 2 HRS BEFORE WE ARRIVE FROM BOSTON. WE ARE ALL GOING ON A FLIGHT 2 HRS AFTER WE ARRIVE FROM BOSTON TO PALERMO. WHERE IS THE BEST PLACE FOR HER TO MEET US IN THE AIRPORT?
Since it sounds like the flight to Palermo is on a separate reservation, I recommend meeting at the check-in area for the airline you are flying to Palermo.
The flight to Palermo is the final destination of the original flight. I guess what I am really asking, is ...is it possible for my daughter to get off her plane at T3 and find out what gate we come in at and wait for us before going through customs? Or, after deplaning, does she need to go through customs?
I need to know if there is enough time for me to catch a plane to Belgrade, with arriving previously from Chicago with 1h and 55 layover in Rome? Is it complicated to move from one arriving from Chicago to one departing to Belgrade. Only carry on luggage?
Thank you very much
Are both flights on Alitalia?
Flying to Rome from BCN and coming back the same day (should arrive at FCO at 8am and the flight back to BCN is at 22:05pm). I know that this depends on how many flights are there before mine but, how long should I expect to pass through immigration at FCO (have an American passport)? And also, is there a separate line dedicated to just stamping boarding passes at the Ryanair checkin desk at FCO (no checked bags, just a carry-on purse!)?
There is no immigration when traveling between Italy and Spain as they are both in the Schengen area.
Does this mean there is no time needed [wasted] to wait in a passport control line even with an American passport?! Does this also mean there is no entry stamp for my passport?
Yes, for immigration purposes you don't cross a border when going from Italy to Spain.
Could you please advise is there any lounges that can be access at the arrival hall of Rome FCO - Terminal 3.

Since me and my frd are taking different flight from different countries and there will be 6 hours waiting time at the arrival hall for me before we met.
Do I have enough time to catch my bus that leaves at 1:00pm from the airport exit
I'm landing at 11:40am terminal 3
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have a flight direct to toronto at 11:30am what time should I arrive at the airport and how long does it take for a car to get from the tourist area to fco
Plan on getting to the airport at about 8:30. Ask your hotel what time that means you should leave.
What time should you arrive to Terminal 5 for a 9:40 AA flight to JFK?
Does the flight actually depart from T5?
You will check your bags and go through security in T5, but T5 has no actual departure gates. You will be taken to the T3 satellite by bus after you go through security.
I am flying from FCO to Washington on United airlines. How early should I plan to arrive at the airport?
Since you have to go through Terminal 5 I recommend 3 hours before your flight.
