BAGGAGE ON FLIGHTS OPERATED BY OTHER PARTNER CARRIERS
For code share flights, please visit the website of the Partner Carrier operating the flight.
CHECKED BAGGAGE CANNOT EXCEED 23 OR 32 KG IN WEIGHT, DEPENDING ON THE TRAVEL CLASS AND DESTINATION, AND 158 CM IN SIZE (THE SUM OF HEIGHT + WIDTH + DEPTH).
At check-in, your baggage will be weighed and tagged with your name, itinerary, airport codes, flight numbers and dates. You will use the tag receipt to identify your baggage upon arrival and, should your baggage be lost, it will make it easier to track. We suggest that you also put your own personal luggage tag on the baggage, including your contact information, so that you can be reached in the event of a problem.
Alitalia's liability limits for lost or damaged baggage do not cover damage to valuable, fragile or perishable goods.
If you wish to extend these limits, find out how you can make a DECLARATION OF VALUE
SIZE, WEIGHT AND AMOUNT — BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE
Make sure your baggage is strong enough and does not exceed the maximum allowed size: 158 cm (height + width + depth).
Cardboard boxes may be accepted as checked baggage, provided they are labeled with the passenger's name, wrapped in cellophane and comply with the maximum allowed size.
Depending on your destination, travel class and the ticket issue date, you may bring one or two pieces of baggage weighing no more than 23 or 32 kg. Any excess in terms of the allowed number of items, weight and/or size can be covered by paying for extra baggage allowance, which you can purchase at the airport from the Alitalia ticket desk or online during check-in, with a 20% discount.
Passengers who have requested special assistance may purchase extra baggage allowance with a 20% discount by calling the dedicated number within 24 hours of their flight departure time.
Please note that, for safety reasons, each item of baggage may not weigh more than 32 kg.
