Planning a vacation or a work trip in Europe? Imagine arriving at your desired destination straight from your city effortlessly, quickly and with no traffic stress, all with the help of a combined ticket.
Thanks to AccesRail you can now purchase your plane and train journeys in a combined ticket and travel to a large number of cities, moving effortlessly from train to plane and back again.
From the main Italian train stations, you can reach the airport, enjoy a comfortable plane ride and disembark directly at your final destination, whether it's in Europe or the rest of the world. Here you can find all of the connection options!
For example, you can depart from Padua with a Trenitalia high-speed train and arrive at the train station at Rome Fiumicino, then check in at the dedicated desk to fly to London and make your way to Edinburgh: all with just one combined ticket!
The dedicated check-in desk at the Fiumicino station, open daily from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm also for baggage “Drop-Off” for those who checked-in online, can be used by all ITA Airways passengers with a Trenitalia train ticket in connection with an ITA Airways operated flight to any destination reached by our network. Passengers traveling to the USA and Israel are excluded due to an express request from the authorities of the destination countries. These passengers will have to check in at the desks at the departure terminal.
