Security checks

The times for security checks may vary even within the same day. It is therefore recommended that you always arrive at the airport well in advance.

Place valuables and cash in the tray in such a way that they are not immediately visible to those preceding or following you in line (e.g. by slipping them into a jacket pocket, etc.).

Try as much as possible to maintain eye contact with the tray.

Remember that security staff do not take over the items you have placed in the tray, and cannot identify which passenger has used which tray.

Security checks are designed to prevent dangerous or prohibited items from being loaded onto the aircraft.

Thanks to the installation of an innovative X-ray device at the Fast Track priority passage, which allows the contents of hand luggage to be scanned in three dimensions, passengers using the fast track passage no longer need to separate liquids (even in quantities exceeding 100 ml) or electronic devices.

Tablets, PCs and smartphones, as well as liquids, aerosols and gels (such as water bottles, cosmetics and foodstuffs) can be left inside hand luggage, instead of being separated in special trays: this speeds up the passage time at security gates for passengers who choose Fast Track, improving the travel experience while meeting all the standards required for screening. 

Prohibited items

Below is a list of items prohibited in the cabin and items prohibited in the hold.

For detailed rules governing liquids and fluids in hand baggage (e.g. gels or creamy products), please refer to the regulations published on the ENAC - Ente Nazionale Aviazione Civile website.

For the transport in the hold of firearms and ammunition, please refer to the regulations in force and the instructions of your carrier.

Before departing, check the airline's website for further restrictions.

Object Disposal

Before checking in, the passenger is asked to get rid, in a specially designated area, of all those objects that, according to the current regulatory framework and basic security rules, are not allowed inside the aircraft. These are liquids, aerosols and gels (L.A.G.S.) and objects not allowed in the cabin (O.N.A.C.).

At the airport, near the security checkpoints, there are special containers that passengers can use to get rid of all those objects that are not allowed in the cabin and that were not previously placed in their checked baggage.

They apply to all passengers departing from airports in the EU whatever their destination.
