Traveling by plane is an experience that can be pleasant or, on the contrary, very stressful. If you've never taken a plane and the thought worries you, don't fret! In this article we will provide you with a lot of useful information to better plan your departure from Catania Fontanarossa Airport .

Haste and agitation can often play tricks, making us run the risk of falling into simple mistakes that we could have avoided.

Thanks to some simple prerogatives you can enjoy your trip without any stress! The important thing is to always organize yourself in advance!

Get to the airport well in advance

We recommend that you respect flight times scrupulously . With this we want to emphasize that when you are about to leave it is impossible to show up at the airport half an hour earlier. Airport mechanisms take a long time for check-in and boarding.

Always go to the airport well in advance. If yours is a domestic flight, we recommend that you arrive at the airport up to 90 minutes before departure. If you have previously performed online check-in you can also reduce your advance to one hour before the flight. In this case, in fact, you will skip the line at check-in and will only have to go to the security checks.

The situation is different for international and intercontinental flights where controls are more stringent and prolonged. In this case, we recommend that you arrive at the airport three hours before.

Make sure you have your documents with you

At Catania airport, as in any other airport, you will need to show your valid identity document .

If you are traveling to Italy and Europe (within the countries that are part of the Schengen area), you will only need to show an identity card with a residual validity of 6 months from the date of your travel.

In all other cases, for travel to non-EU countries, you will need a passport . Some states also require an entry visa which must be requested at the respective embassies, with specific online procedures or once you have arrived at your destination.

Organize your luggage in the best possible way

Always remember to check that your luggage complies with all the provisions set forth by airlines . There are, as you well know, numerous limitations regarding dimensions and weight but also regarding the content.

We remind you that in any case you will be able to take at least one hand luggage and one hold luggage with you.
