Current law foresees, at check-in, the checking of the boarding pass and documents, and the verification of the passenger’s identity. In the case of passengers who have checked-in online and gone directly to the gate, because they only have hand baggage, verification is carried out prior to boarding.
The type of identity document required depends on the destination and the airline, therefore please check the website of the airline with which you are flying. Before leaving, check the suitability and validity of the documents required for the chosen destination.
Travel documents for children
Since 26 June 2012 all Italian minors must be in possession of their own travel document: a valid identity document for expatriation or a passport.
Please note that registration of a child on the parent’s passport is valid until 26.06.2012. In fact, from this date a minor can travel in Europe and abroad only with his/her own travel document (valid identity document for expatriation or passport). At the same time parents’ passports with minors registered will remain valid for the holder only until expiry.
After check-in and before going to the boarding area, you go through security staffed by ADR Security personnel, equipped with metal detectors and other safety equipment.
The times for conducting security checks may vary even throughout the course of the same day.
We therefore recommend always arriving at the airport with plenty of time to spare.
Place any valuable items and cash in the tray in such a way so that they are not immediately visible to those ahead of you or behind you in the queue (for example, in the pocket of a jacket, etc.).
As much as possible, try to maintain visual contact with the tray.
Remember that ADR Security personnel do not take delivery of the items that you placed in the tray and they cannot identify which passenger used any given tray.
In 1985 France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands established among themselves a territory without borders, called the Schengen Area, after the name of the town in Luxembourg where the first agreements were signed.
This intergovernmental cooperation was then extended to thirteen countries, with the signing of the Treaty of Amsterdam in 1997.
Now the Schengen agreement brings 25 European countries together:
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Hungary.
Foreigners: the citizens of all other countries. For entrance to a stay in or transit across the entire Schengen area, foreigners must be in possession of a passport or another travel document recognized as valid to cross the borders of all Schengen countries.
