Checked-in Baggage

Baggage can be registered and must fly only with the passenger, checked-in upon ticket presentation.
All you need to know before leaving follows.  

How to prepare baggage

Baggage to be registered goes in the aircraft hold, so it's important it must be sufficiently rigid and resistent. cardboard boxes may be accepted as registered baggage (wrapped in cellophane, where such service exists), and having the passenger’s complete contact information (name, address and phone number).

The tag, the baggage ID card

At check-in, baggage is weighed and tagged with name, itinerary, destinations' airport codes, flights' numbers and date. The tag's receipt, attached on the ticket, is necessary to identify it upon arrival and eventually in the case of loss for tracking purposes.
