Hand Baggage

Hand Baggage

Personal belongings such as briefcases and portable computers are considered to be hand luggage which you can take onboard. This also applies to crutches and strollers; however these will have to be checked in, labelled and stowed in the hold if there is not enough space on board.

We would also like to remind you about the new overhead lockers that have been introduced on some of our MD80s, in order to offer you more practical storage for your hand baggage.

Hand baggage dimensions

You are allowed to carry only 1 piece of hand luggage onboard which must not exceed 8 kgs of weight and the following dimensions (including handles, side pockets and wheels):




PLEASE NOTE: in order to speed up boarding procedures, we invite you to verify size and weight of your hand baggage with one of the Alitalia representatives or by using one the bag gauges located near the Alitalia check-in desks before proceeding to the boarding gate.
Passengers who refuse or fail to carry out hand baggage check procedures before reaching the boarding gate, may be refused boarding.  

Please download the "Hand baggage quick reference".

Dangerous articles

For security reasons, you are not allowed to board with potentially dangerous articles such as scissors, cutters, Swiss army-type knives or tools and instruments for agricultural, scientific, sporting or industrial use and the like, nor can you board with any type of imitation or toy firearm. 
Furthermore, it is forbidden to take cigarette-lighters on board all flights from Italy to the United States. 

For more details about baggage, contact the nearest Alitalia office.
