1 hour layover arrive from BDS at 8 am and depart for ATL 9 am booked on Delta with one checked bag on a Saturday morning - is this enough time to make the connection?
1hr is not enough time. You will probably have to switch terminals by using the shuttle bus. I would go for 2hr at least or 2hr 30min.
Am arriving from the US on Air Berlin into FCO and have 2 1/2 hours to get on a RyanAir flight to Malta. I will have to pick up my luggage and then check it with Ryan Air. I wonder how much time it takes to go through customs and security.
Air Berlin does not fly from the US to Berlin. Where are you flying from?
Sorry I mean Air Berlin does not fly from the US to Rome.
My clients are changing planes from terminal 5 in Fuimicino from Air Transat to Alitalia Terminal one to Reggio...have two seperate tickets...their flight arrives at 11.40am and their Alitalia flight departs at 2.35pm...will they have enough time ?
They will not arrive in Terminal 5 - that is a departure only terminal. They will arrive in Terminal 3. They should have enough time. They will have to claim their bags from Air Transat and take them to Alitalia in T1 to Re-check.
I have a 3 Hr and 40 minute layover in Rome can I go to the colloseum museum
No, that is not enough time.
I have a night layover in Rome for about 5 hours. My flight will arrive at the Rome airport at 9:05 PM. My second flight leaving the Rome airport at 5:30 AM. Do you have any advice or experience how to spend 5 hours at the Rome Fiumicino airport?

Thank you.
On Alitalia from Athens to Rome - arriving Terminal 1. Connecting to Alitalia nonstop to JFK leaving out of Terminal 3. It shows a 1 hour layover - is this even doable?
Yes, that is possible. You just have to go through Schengen Exit passport control and to your departure gate.
Hello, I have 6 hour layover at Rome Airport and wanted to see if this gives me enough time to take the Leonardo Express and visit Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona area and back.
Arriving at rome at 530 pm from alitalia flight at terminal 1 and onward flight to new delhi at 840 pm terminal 3. IS there enough time to grab luggage and go through security? Is there automatic transfer?
how long i need from T1 to T3 as i dont have loggages and i have 1 hour to catch up my next flight
At FCO T1 has boarding area B, T3 has boarding areas D & H (with D & H gates) When connecting from gate to gate, follow signs to "Boarding Area". You have enough transfer time.
We have a long layover at FCO (8.5 hrs). We arrive from Toronto and going to Albania. IDo we have enough time to visit downtown Rome or we have to stay all that time at the Aeroport. We have Canadian Passaport.
Just wondering if you were able to do something with that layover time as we have (nearly) the exact same situation.
