Terminals
As of December 2021, FCO's active terminals are T1 and T3.

To determine the terminal for your airline, do a search at https://www.adr.it/web/aeroporti-di-...ore-travelling . As of May 2022, the list of airlines using each terminal appears outdated; for example Lufthansa isn't on the list of airlines using T1, but a search shows it using T1. For the most part, Schengen based airlines use Terminal 1; non-Schengen Terminal 3.


Gates are numbered with A for Schengen, E for non-Schengen; U.S.-bound flights are generally from the satellite gate area E31-44, accessed by a rail people mover. All gates can be accessed from either terminal; for example ITA flights to the U.S. check in at T1, on the east side of the complex, but depart from the satellite gates well to the west.

Baggage claim is at T1 for Schengen (i.e. if connecting, the flight to FCO departs from a Schengen airport), T3 for non-Schengen, regardless of which terminal the airline uses for check-in.

Your schedule is quite tight, though you don't mention the airline and if the booking is on one ticket.
If your incoming flight is on time you can definitely make it. Just follow the transfer signals.

Depends on where you are coming from and what kind of passport you hold. If you are coming from inside the Schengen region and/or have an EU passport then it shouldn't be a problem. If you are coming from somewhere else, you never know what kind of line you'll get for the passport/security checks. I waited in line for about 45 minutes to get my exit passport stamp on my US passport the other evening connecting to TLV in Rome coming from MXP and would have missed my connection if it was only an hour, and including time to walk from one side of the airport to the other.

I'm coming from TLV so I will have to pass security. I count on getting on time and I don't sent anything. My airline is Alitalia for the whole way...

You'll have to pass both security and passport control although at that time of the morning I don't expect passport control to be too crowded. Theoretically doable if you walk fast from the bus to security (there will probably be a bus from the plane to the terminal) and walk fast through the terminal. Although if your flight is late (and ALITALIA is an acronym for "Always Late In Takeoff And Late In Arrival") you might run into some trouble. Good luck.

haha, you snarky eh..
If you bothered to read the on-time statistics instead of display your wisdom here, you'd be surprised. With collateral benefits on your stereotypes.

As others wrote, this is really very, very tight. And I disagree with NYTA as far as lines at immigration are concerned at that time of day: TATL flights do arrive early; only a EU passport gets you through fast. Moreover, there is a fairly good chance that the luggage won't make it. Remember, even if on-time, arrival time often doesn't include taxiing. In summary, assuming zero time lost at immigration, you'll need approximately 10 min. taxiing, 10 min. to deplane, 5 min. of bussing, 5 min. going through immigration, 10 min. walk to Terminal 1 and then security and walk to the gate (at least 10 min.). That leaves you about 20 min. for immigration and a possible delay. If you like to gamble, go ahead

Agreed. You will be gambling. Your connection is very tight.

Is 65 min connection (non-Schengen to non-Schengen) enough at FCO?

Booked to fly TLV-FCO-JFK all on AZ with a 65 minute connection at FCO.
Thankfully, we don't need any special assistance and can move fine.

Is this enough time?
I presume we'll need to re-clear security, but I'm having a difficult time figuring out if we'll need to clear passport control at all. Does anyone know?

I gather that FCO-JFK departs from T3, but does anyone know whether TLV-FCO arrives at T1 or T3? If T1, how easy are terminal transfers?

Thanks in advance!

(mods - sorry if this should've been posted in the AZ forum - please move accordingly)

ETA: It seems that the TLV-FCO leg is also T3

Plenty of time, provided your incoming flight is on time and you've already checked-in for the TATL leg.

Thanks

It seems that the first leg is T3 as well which is good. If it's T1 though, how much time will I need to transfer terminals and clear security?

Walk/train between T1 and T3 (satellite) would be ~20-25 min., no security airside, but this is academic, as T1 is Schengen, so you simply can't clear immigration. You will arrive/depart to/from T3. It you arrived T1 (I repeat, you will not), your chances of making it, even if on time, would be rather slim.

FCO T3-T3 transit question

Hello.

My question is how much time will I need to transit from an Air Malta flight to a British Airways flight at FCO on a Wednesday morning in Nov 2015?
Both airlines operate out of T3 and the Air Malta flight arrives at 10.00am. I can choose a 12.15pm departure or a 14.15pm departure on BA to LHR. They would be on separate tickets, I have an Australian passport, and I will have hand luggage only.
It would be from Schengen to non-Schengen. Can I do this without having to go through passport control? I assume that there would still be security screening? Is 2.15 hours enough time? Is 4.15 hours enough time?

Thank you in advance for your replies.

It's absolutely doable. If your first flight is not late and there are no lines at immigration (to be correct: leaving the Schengen area), you'll need ~20 min. gate-to-gate. You will have to show your passport but there will be no security check.
