Check-in at Catania airport

The area used for check-in is located on the first floor where Terminal A is located. There are more than 50 desks available and are dedicated to the various airlines present at the airport. To check-in, just pay attention to the monitors that will indicate the counter number corresponding to your airline. Once you arrive at the right desk, you need to apply for a boarding pass and hand in your hold baggage. We always remember to respect the regulations regarding the weight and contents of each suitcase.

What cannot be carried in the hold baggage

The rules regarding the weight of baggage are regulated differently by each airline. Regarding the contents of the suitcase, on the other hand, there are general and common guidelines for all flight agencies.

Among the elements that are not allowed for transport in a suitcase we find:

  • Sharp or pointed objects (knives, scissors, blades, penknives, etc.)
  • Flammable substances (Spray paint, White spirit, alcoholic beverages, etc.)
  • Weapons (Lighters, Toy Weapons, Slingshots or any object that can be used as a weapon)
  • Sports and gym equipment (fishing rods, skates, golf clubs or rigid sticks of any kind.)
  • The content of the baggage is always carefully monitored and rigid, so we advise you to always inform yourself adequately about the permitted content, in order to embark without problems.

Travel documents

Current legislation requires, at check-in, the control of documents and verification of the passenger's identity with the boarding pass. Before departure, always check the validity of your documents. We also remind you that for travel to Schengen states or non-Schengen countries, it is advisable to check which documents are recognized at the time of crossing the borders such as passport and identity card. However, this category also includes other travel documents as long as they are recognized by the country of destination.

Controls and security

The rules and controls at the airport are very strict. Passengers are required to comply with every request in the legislation. As for baggage, for example, they must always and compulsorily be equipped with a specific label with name and surname, not to exceed the number and maximum weight allowed for transport. In relation to these characteristics, it is possible to know the weight and number limitations determined by the class of service shown on the ticket. However, the exclusive transport of one hand luggage or a small bag, a PC or a document holder is permitted on board the plane.
