The main Arrivals area of Marco Polo Airport is on the terminal’s ground floor. The airport is served by a variety of domestic and international airlines that fly from many destinations.
Passengers that have arrived from a non-Schengen country will need to go through passport control. This is operated by the Italian frontier police.
Re-claim your baggage before leaving the Arrivals area. Always check the baggage labels to ensure that it is yours. Baggage trolleys are available and located near to the re-claim area. A one euro coin is required to release one of the trolleys from the bay. The euro coin is refunded, once you have returned the trolley to one of the bays in the terminal, near the harbour (pier), or near the bus stops.
Porters and baggage transportation is managed by Trasbagagli. They also manage the left luggage depot in the Arrivals area. The depot is open every day from 05:30 to 21:00.
The baggage handling companies (Avia Partner, Eagles Services and Sav) have Lost and Found offices in the Arrivals area. The company responsible for your flight’s baggage will be displayed next to the flight number.
Lost baggage should initially be reported to the appropriate baggage handling company’s Lost and Found office. You will be required to complete a claim form that includes the characteristics/descriptions of the lost baggage. If your baggage is not found after a short period, you may contact your airline and organize a refund for the cost of essential items that you need. Lost baggage (when found) can be personally collected or delivered to your specified address by courier.
The Lost and Found Offices also accept claims for damaged luggage. They will provide you with the relevant contact address for the settlement of the damages incurred.
