The airport consists of one fairly large terminal building, which was recently completely renovated for the 2006 Winter Olympic Games held in the city and at the nearby mountains. Arrivals at the airport are handled from the ground floor, while the departures area is on the first floor. Passengers are advised to arrive in good time for their departure flight, with sufficient time to find parking at the airport and the relevant check-in desk, and pass the security control procedures before entering the secure departures lounge. Passengers on domestic flights should check-in at least an hour before their scheduled departure time, while international flights need at least two hours before departure. Your airline company can give you more specific details regarding your flight.
There are various ways to check-in Passengers may have an electronic ticket, which is a ticket that is only a digital record in the airline’s computer, rather than a piece of paper in your hand. All you will need to check-in is your identity document and your booking code. An electronic ticket is created by making a reservation from your airline’s website, and then receiving confirmation of the booking by email. Passengers may also check-in from a web check-in service. In this case a passenger will print his/her own boarding card and choose airplane seats from the comfort of his/her home, instead of going to the airport to check-in. Passengers using web check-in services can go directly to the boarding gates about half an hour before their scheduled departure time. There are also thirteen self check-in facilities on site, and these may be used for the airline companies of Alitalia, Air France and Lufthansa.
Passengers departing from Turin Airport should ensure that they do not exceed the hold baggage limitations set by their airline company, and that each item of baggage is clearly marked.

Passengers may also not take more than a total of one litre of liquid substances in hand luggage, and each liquid should be carried in containers of no more than 100 ml each. These items are then placed into a re-sealable and transparent plastic bag, and handed separately to security for inspection. The new liquid rules do not apply to baby foods or special dietary foods needed for the duration of the flight, or to any items in hold luggage.
