Tickets and baggage

Passport control

Before departure you should complete several formalities. Check-in time at airports is usually two hours before the departure of an international flight. Go straight to the check-in counter of your airline. Once you have shown your valid ticket and your identity card or passport (or any other documents required such as visas or vaccination certificates, etc.) you will receive a boarding card for your plane.

Today (especially at larger airports) there are two queues, one for EU citizens and one for non EU citizens. Here you have to produce your passport or identity card (for citizens of the EU traveling within the EU). Travelers undergo similar procedures on their return to their country of departure.

Whilst waiting for your flight you can do some shopping in the duty free shops with their bargain prices that are very popular with tourists. However as an EU citizen flying within this zone you will not be able to buy goods duty free.


There are certain limitations regarding the content and size of hand luggage. Security measures for flights and passenger safety will not permit the transport in your hand luggage any kind of articles that might be used as an offensive weapon; sharp metal objects (penknives, scissors), inflammable materials (lighter gas, solvents, matches) or poisonous substances.
Information on security and baggage limitation can be found on each airline’s web site. Please note there is also a charge for excess baggage.

Non-standard baggage

In the case of non-standard baggage e.g. skis, snowboards, bicycles, windsurfing boards, be prepared for additional payment. The payment for over-size baggage depends on each airline and the kind of equipment transported. Wheelchairs are transported free of charge.
