Generally, for domestic flights, it is recommended to arrive at the airport an hour before departure, while for international flights, two or three hours may be required.

The check-in procedure at the airport is when the passenger receives his/her boarding pass, and hands over any baggage that should be transported in the hold. The passenger can then proceed through the security checkpoint, and wait for departure in the secure departure lounge on the airside of the airport. All baggage should be clearly marked with the passenger’s name, surname and address, and should preferably not exceed the baggage allowance set by the airline company. All airline companies may differ in their baggage requirements, and it also depends on in which class you are travelling, but in general, two items are allowed per passenger, and each should not weight more than 20 kg. If your luggage is heavier, you will need to pay an excess baggage charge at the ticket office, located in the departures area.

Various items of hand luggage may be brought on board most airplanes, including laptops, reading material, coats or jackets, walking sticks or umbrellas and baby strollers, but each of these items will need to be x-rayed at security. In order to facilitate the security process, passengers are advised to wear or bring as few objects made of metal as possible. The new liquid regulations in Italian airports limit the amount of liquids that may be carried on board the aircraft. Passengers should place each separate liquid item in containers of no more than 100ml, and should also not have a total liquid quantity of more than one litre. These items must be placed in a clear and transparent re-sealable plastic bag, which is now available from dispensers at most airports, and handed to security for inspection.
