Just received notification for flight time changes, leaving me not much connection time.
Arrive Terminal 1 at 5:25 PM (AZ from BDS) and leave from Terminal 3 at 6:25 PM (CI to TPE). Single award ticket booked by DL. How are my chances looking? Will I need to redo security checks when transferring between T1 and T3? In case I were to miss the connection, who would be responsible for re-booking me? DL (ticket issuer), AZ (incoming flight carrier) or CI (outgoing flight carrier)? Thanks in advance.
You do not have to go through security again, just Schengen Exit Passport Control. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time. If you miss the flight Alitalia or China Airlines would rebook you.
i'm flying to tel aviv from JFK on alitalia with a two hour connection at FCO- is that enough time? will i have to change terminals?
Yes, that should be enough time. Both flights will be in Terminal 3.
Hi - I am arriving in Rome terminal 1 at 8,30pm AZ flight and need to catch a connecting flight to Abu Dhabi terminal 3 at 10pm. I will only have carry on luggage. Should I walk it or is there a shuttle ? Will I have enough time ?
You will have to walk. You should have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I am taking Alitalia from Tel Aviv to Venice with a 1hour and 10 min stop over in Rome. I don't know the terminals at FCO the flights are leaving from or arriving. Is 1hour 10, enough time to make the flight to venice.
You will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 1. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I will be flighing in from Los Angeles with Air Italia and have 1hrs10min transfer to fligh to Dusseldorf. Is this too tight?
Flight to Dusseldorf also on Air Italia ticket.
It's possible.
I am flying to Paris with Transit of 50 minutes connection flights in FCO via Alitalia (same ticket for both flights). Arriving Terminal 3 and departing Terminal 1. Is this doable for me and my BAGGAGE as well if flights were kept af exactly same time.
I appreciate your help
I also should check in on the passport control for my shenghen visa
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying from Montreal to Catania, via American airlines with stop over in Philadelphia and Rome. I have one ticket through travelocity. I only have 1hr and 20 minutes in Rome. Do you know if I need to pick up baggage in Rome before boarding for Catania. AA says yes, Travelocity says no.
What airline are you flying to Catania?
If it's all on one ticket then you should not have to claim your bag in Rome and should have enough time.
Thank you.
I will be flying from Tel Aviv to CDG Paris on Alitalia, connecting for my second flight at FCO. I have a wide choice of connections, ranging from 1 hour 20 minutes to 12 hours. Will the shortest connection of 1 hr 20 min be long enough, or should I try for something in the 2-4 hour range?
I personally would book the 2-4 hour range, but the 1 hr 20 minute one isn't impossible.
After 2 weeks in Italy, I will be flying from Catania, Sicily back to Rome arriving at T2 at 8:25 am, I have carry-on luggage, and need to go to Terminal 5 for my flight at 10:40 am back to states. Do I have to go outside to Terminal 5 and go through all the check in, security and passport at Terminal 5 or is there a secured way to get from T2 to T5? If I do have to go outside to T5 is 2 hours and 15 minutes enough time?
Your departure gate will be in Terminal 3, so you MAY be able to check in at the transfer desk of your carrier in Terminal 3 rather than go to Terminal 5, but there's no guarantee. You do have enough time to go to T5 if you have to if the flight from Sicily is on-time.
Hi I am flying from Alghero to Rome FCO T1 arriving 20.30pm with Alitalia and flying FCO T3 to London at 21.55pm with Norwegian with 1 checked in baggage. Is it possible? Thank you for your advice.
I think that will be really difficult getting your checked bag and then re-checking it with Norwegian in time.
Thank you for your advice.. I'd like to ask one more question.. if I buy an Alitalia ticket from Alghero to Rome arriving 20.30 pm and stopover and the day after from Rome to London at 9am, should I still have to get my checked bag and bring it to the next flight? -sorry a bit complicated. Appreciate your answer,
You would have to ask Alitalia to make sure, but I'm fairly sure you would have to claim your bag the evening you arrive and then re-check it the following morning.
Also, if Norwegian operates the flight to London, you will DEFINITELY have to re-check it. Norwegian doesn't interline bags with any other airlines.
Thank you. I really appreciated your comment. I booked another ticket for the day after morning. Hopefully everything goes well.
