12:20 pm flight. Get there at 10:40. US passports. No luggage checkin. Prechecked in. Do we have enough time to get through security? Thx
That should be enough time.
What check-in desks in Terminal 1 is Delta now using?
I am looking to book a flight on Air Italia both legs of JFK-FCO-PMO in July. The flight has a 1h35m layover. Is that enough time for a family of 5 US Citizens with carry-on and checked luggage? Thanks!
That's enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Delta has posted an update for checking in. Now we go to Terminal 1 and drop bags then are directed to passport control. Does that mean we no longer make a trip to Terminal 5?
Yes, that appears to be the case - you will no longer use Terminal 5 to depart. You will check in in Terminal 1 and then proceed through Schengen Exit passport control and security to your departure gate in Terminal 3.
Hi. We are arriving with Air Serbia from Belgrade (from Tel Aviv) at terminal 1 19:35 and have an Emirates flight form terminal 3 at 22:05 (first class...hopefully quick check in). Will this be enough time on a Thursday evening? Do we need to go through passport control/security on arrival and departure?
Yes, that should be enough time. Since it sounds like two separate reservations, yes, you will have to go through Schengen Entry and Exit passport control and through security.
Thank you ZAP. Yes it is 2 different bookings and we will have luggage. I was just nervous it might not be enough time but am glad that you think it will be. Appreciate it.
We are on a 5:30pm flight to Athens from FCO. What time should we arrive at the airport?
Since it's within Schengen you should be OK getting there at about 4:30.
Hello. We are arriving on Delta from JFK on Sunday morning at 7:10am. I would like to reserve our train ride to Florence, but would like an idea of approximately how much time to allow for getting our luggage, going through customs, and getting to the train departure site. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
upon leaving plane, does passenger go first to baggage and then customs? Or customs, then baggage?
They go to Passport control, then baggage claim, then customs (although Customs in Europe is really informal since they inspect your bags before they put them on the carousel).
Can someone advise me if we will need to go through Customs only in Rome and then recheck our baggage from FCO to ATL since we are on 2 different reservations using frequent flyer points. Taking Delta. Also how much time to get from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5?
I would want at least 2.5 hours for this transfer. Yes, you will have to go through Schengen Entry passport control upon arrival in order to claim your bags and go to T5.
Flying TLV - FCO - JFK. I have a 1hr 25 minutes layover all on one ticket, all Alitalia (klm codeshare). Is this enough time? Which terminal will I land in and from which will I take off from? How far apart are they?

You will both arrive and depart from Terminal 3. You have enough time.
