Transit Passenger at FCO

by FredJ44

I will be flying from Sicily to Rome on Alitalia and then transferring to British Air to London. This will likely include a terminal change.

From the little info I can wheedle out of these airlines, I apparently cannot check my luggage through to London.

As a transit passenger in Rome, will I need to pass through Immigration Control, etc to get my bag?



Re: Transit Passenger at FCO

You can check your luggage through, even if it's an off-line connection (2 "contracts"/separate tickets) as these airlines are "system" airlines. If it's an interline connection (1 contract/ticket) it will be much easier and your connection will even be "guaranteed".

However it may be that in both instances you have to obtain your next (BA) boarding card at the gate where the BA flight is leaving from as these airlines are not in the same alliance.

In any case you will pass through immigration/passport control within the terminal (airside) as you are leaving the Schengen area.

Re: Transit Passenger at FCO

When you arrive in Rome you will not go through passport control because you are arriving with an internal flight, so you can go directly to the luggage retrieval area ad move to the other terminal.
Changing terminal is not a big issue, since they are not far apart.
With BA you can do the check-in online up to 24 hours before the flight. If you do this, in FCO you will need just to check-in your luggage. After this you will have to go through the security check and passport control, as you will be leaving the Schengen area.

As I said, no need to retrieve the luggage as it can be checked through.

@ Noel: what are system airlines and how can one know which airlines are system airlines?

Re: Transit Passenger at FCO

by nhoolb

System airlines are those that, for instance, are within an alliance and are NOT LCC (Low Cost Carriers) and those that construct connections be it on-line or interline. LCCs are, mostly, only point-to-point without being able to make connections on one ticket (on-line, let alone interline) though exceptions exist.

Re: Transit Passenger at FCO

by FredJ44

Again, re: "system" airlines definition: Alitalia and British Air are neither LCC or in "alliance" with one another. Alitalia is SkyTeam and BA is OneWorld. Or is there another type of "alliance?"

Re: Transit Passenger at FCO

by Mozumbus

Thanks Noel for the response. Now, I am also curious on the above definition of 'system' airline and 'alliance'(?)

Re: Transit Passenger at FCO

by nhoolb

System airlines are all airlines that construct connections, be it within their own route system (on-line) or alliance and/or even with other airlines/alliances. And they are in CRSs (Computerised Reservation Systems-such as Amadeus etc.). In such a case the airline X of alliance A acts as a travel/handling agent for an airline Y in alliance B (interlining).

LCCs don't do that, the majority not even within their own route system. That's why these type of airlines are not considered "system" airlines. They just sell one ticket, a flight from A to B only (point to point).

There are 3 major alliances:
Star alliance (Lufthansa/Continental-United/SAS.....)
Skyteam (KLM-Air France/Delta/Alitalia....)
One World (Iberia/British Airways/American Airlines.....)

Some airlines are not in an alliance but nevertheless are "system" airlines such as, for example, Aer Lingus.

Thanks Noel :) it will definitely help me and others when choosing for connections...

Travel Tips for Rome

Baths of Caracalla

by alemir82

These baths, completed in the 3rd century, were named after the emperor Caracalla. During it's heyday it covered 27 acres and could handle 1,600 bathers at a time. This is an amazing sight to see, and is not to be missed.

Miming the mime

by karenincalifornia

You'll find a number of creative mimes at the Piazza Navona in the evening. They were capable of standing for hours on a pedestal in their costumes, and the only movement they would make would be the blink of an eye.

My favorite mime was a businessman running through the plaza. We saw him there every night. He was always in the same position, with a smile frozen on his face, one foot extended, one behind him, one hand extended, one carrying a briefcase. Even his jacket was rigged with wires to make it look like it was flying in the wind.

My son took this photo of my husband and me with the mime. So, how did we do? Do we make good mimes?

Rome Pza San Giovanni in Laterano Scala Santa

by icunme

The Basilica San Giovanni is here - the first seat of the Pope and the site of the huge sculptures of the 12 apostles. Here also you will find the Shrine of the Holy Stairs - Santa Scala - and one of the oldest images of Christ - given the name of Acheropita because, according to legend, it was miraculously painted without human intervention. It is the Christian custom to climb the Holy Stairs on ones knees and you can expect to see pilgrims ascending the stairs if you visit. There was, for me, an unmistakable aura of reverence and sanctity inside this shrine.

Restricted Traffic Zone in Rome City Center

by mccalpin

It is not legal for most people to drive around in the city center of Rome during weekdays and part of the weekend. This is what an official website says:

"Monday through Friday from 6.30 to 18.00 and Saturday from 14.00 to 18.00 you are not allowed to drive to downtown Rome, unless you are a resident or you are granted a special permission.

All 22 streets accessing the so-called "Limited Traffic Zone" (Z.T.L. in Italian) have been equipped with electronic access detection devices, which are able to detect and record illegal access of vehicles. This electronic access detection system "reads" the plate numbers of vehicles illegally accessing the Zone and the vehicle owners will receive a fine at home.

All tourists wishing to drive to downtown hotels by their private car should first contact the hotel management. Upon arrival the hotel has to send a fax containing numberplate and days of stay to ATAC.
fax 0039 06 57 11 82 59 to avoid the fine.

For further information, please visit or call the Information Center at the number 06 57 118 333 (Monday through Friday from 8.00 to 18.00, Saturday from 14.00 to 18.00)." from

I have finally found the maps of the various Z.T.L. zones in Rome; however, the index and maps are only in Italian at the ATAC website. Please see the map index for the list of maps. Note that "diurna" means daytime, and "notturna" means nighttime.

Note that sectors A through F are generally the center of Rome east of the Tiber. Sector G is Trastevere.

Note that the ZTL hours for Trastevere (Sector G) is different than the others - cars without the proper authorization are banned from Sector G only from 06:30 to 10:00 on Monday through Saturday. At this point, there does not appear to be a ban after 10 a.m.

Al Fresco

by kbsunnyside about Spiriti

Huge wine selection with decent prices (somewhat higher with intro of the euro). Friendly staff. Sometimes the American southern rock music is too loud or not the right ambiance, but sometimes it's just perfect. And you can always sit outside. They also have small entrees, but go for the wine.
