I am arriving Rome airport from JFK on Alitalia. I booked and paid in credit card a first class roundtrip JFK-Rome ticket on Alitalia. Since I had Alitalia frequent flyer miles, I decided to book a one-way flight from Rome to Venice with the miles. Therefore, the roundtrip JFK-Rome leg has a different booking number than the one way Rome to Venice leg. I have 1 hour 40 minutes to make the connection from T3 (arrival in Rome) to get to T1 (to take off from Rome to Venice). Alitalia said that the agent in JFK "should" be able to print my boarding pass for the Rome to Venice flight, at the same time they print my boarding pass for the roundtrip JFK-Rome, Rome-JFK flight. The word "should" makes me worried. If I have all my boarding passes pre-printed, will 1 hour 40 minutes be enough time? I only have carry-on luggage, no checked bags. If they can't print my boarding pass for the Rome-Venice leg in the United States when I show up at JFK, how do I this when I get to Rome airport in order to board the flight from Rome to Venice? And will 1 hour 40 minutes be enough time? Thank you.
If you don't already have your Venice boarding pass you can get it at the Alitalia transfer desk in Rome. You should have enough time.
Thank you. Is the Alitalia transfer desk located after we go through the customs/passport control desk? or before it?
Hello I land at 8:00 from tel Aviv in FCO and departure to JFK at 10:40: If my luggage continue to JFK and I don't need collect in FCO? If I must undergo a passport check by the Border Police without exit the terminal or to exit fully and pass all the the process including security checking? Thanks
You will not have to collect your bags or go through border control in Rome if both flights are on the same reservation.
Thank you. I land at T3 and departure from T1. They have special inside gate connection between terminals without full exit from T3?
You will not depart from T1. The departure gate should be in T3.
We fly out of Venice at 10:00 a.m. on Air Italia to FCO. Our flight from FCO to Canada leaves at 1:35 p.m. on Air Canada. I believe we will have to pick up luggage and go through security again??? Pending we arrive in Rome as scheduled, 11:05, will we have enough time to make the transfer?
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hello, I will be flying from Montreal to Rome arriving in Rome at 8:55 a.m. There is a flight from Rome to Bari at 9:55 but I purchased separately with Alitalia for the 2:30 flight. If by chance I would be able to make the 9:55 flight, what should I do? go straight to the Alitalia gate, which is in a different terminal or do I have to go out of airside and go to an Alitalia counter to pay for the flight change and then go through security again? I am not checking any bags so that I can have a better chance to make it but if I have to leave airside I will never make it....so my question is, will Alitalia let me make the change at the gate and pay the 50 euro charge there if I get there at least 15 minutes before boarding?
Yes, if you can make it you could make the change at the Alitalia gate or Transfer Desk.
I am flying MIA to Rome on Alitalia. I have a connecting flight on Alitalia two hours later to Venice. All is on one ticket record. Where to I clear customs? Do I have to pick up my bags? Is there a security for the second flight and passport control?
You will go through Schengen Entry passport control. You will not have to go through security. You don't have to do anything with your bags. You should have enough time.
