JFK to Catania transferring at Malpensa

My flight from JFK (Delta) lands at 8:45am. I would like to book the 11:20am flight from Malpensa to Catalina on Easy Jet. Will I have enough time to clear customs and get to the Easy Jet terminal in time for my flight?

Hi, I would allow an hour to get through passport control and pick up your luggage, then you have to get the shuttle bus to the other terminal so it will be very tight and if your incoming flight is late you definitely won't make it, I would book a later flight.

When in transit from an Intercontinental long haul flight, you need to allow a very minimum of three hours for transfer.

Book a later flight, allocating at least 3 hours, and perhaps 4 hours for this connection.

Also note that easy-Jet closes the boarding gate 30 minutes prior to departure.

Thank you all for the valuable information. I wrote that my arrival is 8:45 by mistake. I am arriving at 7:45, however I did not book the 11:20 based on your advice. I did book the next flight which is 2:30.

I have another question. Is anyone familiar with Easyjet policies? If we do arrive at terminal 2 (easyjet) in time for the 11:20 flight, will they allow us to rebook for that flight if there are seats? Would there be a charge? I will try to call easy Jet too. Thanks again!

Prego HAWK23,

That's probably more time than you would require!

You can read all of easyJet's Terms & Conditions on their website.
