TRAVEL DOCUMENTS


The document required to travel depends on the destination. Therefore, we suggest you to check on www.viaggiaresicuri.it before travelling. 

Carry a valid identity document, your ticket and any luggage with you and keep your documents handy as they will be requested at security and boarding controls.

If you hold airline or airport cards (loyalty, frequent flyer, priority), remember to bring them with you to access the dedicated services.

Following the EU Regulation 2017/458 of the European Parliament about the reinforcement of checks in the databases at the external borders, we advise all passengers, departing for the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland and Egypt, who are minors or hold only a non-electronic ID card/passport , to reach the airport in advance in order to proceed to border controls in time.

Passengers aged 14 and over and in possession of an Electronic Passport may use automatic passport controls (E-Gates).
