Going on a trip on an airplane can only be pleasant. However, for your trip to pass without unpleasant surprises, you must check the baggage allowance offered by your air operator ITA Airways.

Hand Baggage (In cabin): Policy, maximum weight and dimensions

The maximum size of ITA Airways cabin (hand) baggage is 115 cm (55+35+25), which is the sum of the three dimensions, and its maximum weight is 8 kg.

In addition to this baggage, it is possible for each passenger boarding an ITA Airways aircraft to take with them an additional handbag containing another accessory, including a laptop computer.

Hold baggage: How many pieces to check in?

If your next flight is on board an aircraft belonging to ITA Airways, you can carry one to two pieces of checked baggage free of charge. This of course depends on your travel class:

Travel Cabin

Number of Piece and Weight Limit

Economy Light

/

Economy

1x23kg
Premium Economy

2x23kg

Business

2x32kg
Comfort

2x32kg

Maximum dimensions: Each piece of baggage going into the hold will be measured by ITA Airways agents at the airport. The Italian company does not accept pieces with measurements greater than 158cm (total of the three dimensions).

By exceeding these dimensions or by transporting luggage of a weight greater than that accepted by ITA Airways, penalties apply systematically. To avoid falling into this unpleasant situation and paying a big penalty, it is possible to adjust your baggage allowance by buying a supplement whose price varies between 60€ and 300€.

Additional baggage, heavier weights or larger dimensions: Purchase excess baggage

By exceeding these dimensions or by transporting luggage of a weight greater than that accepted by ITA Airways, penalties apply systematically. To avoid falling into this unpleasant situation and paying a big penalty, it is possible to adjust your baggage allowance by buying a supplement whose price varies between 60€ and 300€.

You can still benefit from discounts on your purchases of additional baggage, by making purchases online, in the My Flights section, on Ita-airways.com.

The airline ITA Airways has the obligation to provide all the necessary information. If a traveler is faced with the loss, damage or delay of his luggage, it is worth entering the website of the Italian company and obtaining advice.

On the other hand, if the passenger with travel insurance must notify the travel assistance company, it is advisable to do so before leaving the airport. These types of assistance services do not always offer compensation unless the baggage is permanently lost. What insurance does, usually, is follow up to try to locate it.

If the baggage is lost when the traveler arrives at a destination other than where they live, the airline must provide a kit or money to cover the basic expenses of not having the baggage.

Suitcases and luggage lost at the airport: Avoid this damage by following these tips

– Remove identification from previous trips

People often forget to remove stickers from past trips and cause confusion for people in charge of moving luggage, who often end up going elsewhere.

– Check in your baggage early

It is advisable to arrive at the airport two hours in advance if the flight is to a domestic destination or three hours if it is an international destination. This will prevent your baggage from being the last to be checked in and, due to lack of space, ending up being loaded onto the next available flight.

– Stick a tag on your suitcases to distinguish them from other baggage at the airport

Many passengers overlook this simple but important step. Complete with complete data such as name, surname and telephone number, … on the plastic tags they sell to attach luggage.

A ribbon or something flashy to make it easier to identify. Often, when there are suitcases of one color and nothing that catches the eye, they can be taken by someone else by mistake. To avoid this problem, it is important to identify your luggage from the rest of the passengers.

– Take a photo of your luggage and win it in your smartphone

This may seem like overkill, but having this file before handing it over to airport employees will allow you to have more material to help with making a claim in the future if needed.
