    • Obligation to wear a surgical mask (mouth-nose-cover)

      Every passenger, since Monday May 4th, must cover the mouth and the nose on board on all Air Dolomiti and Lufthansa's flights and at the airport. Protective masks are mandatory for all the passengers. Moreover, face shields (masks with a protector visor) and FFP2 masks with a valve are not permitted on board. All cabin crew with direct customer contact will of course also be wearing appropriate protection. 

      According to All. 1 DPCM of 14th July 2020, on each flight from/to and within Italy the use of surgical masks is mandatory on board (cloth masks are allowed only if certified as chirurgical face mask) .

      The only exceptions to the obligation are children under the age of 6 and persons who are not allowed to wear a mask for health reasons. 


      We only accept exception from the obligation to wear a mask on presentation of a validated negative PCR test result  and a medical certificate on a corresponding Lufthansa Group form. The negative test result must be dated and issued no more than 48 hours prior to flight departure. This applies to both the outbound and the return flight. You can download here our medical certificate form for exemption of wearing a mouth-nose-cover.

      We take these protective measures very seriously and reserve the right to take appropriate action in case of non-compliance.

      Thank you for helping to protect all passengers!

    • Changes in hand luggage rules

      Due to new regulations at the aviation security checkpoints, you are currently only allowed to carry on board one piece of hand luggage regardless of the fare purchased: your hand baggage can be placed inside the overhead bins or under the seat in front of you. If you have purchased a fare that allows 2 pieces of hand luggage (for example Business Class fares) you can bring only one bag on board with you and register the other bag in hold.
      Due to a regulation of the Italian authorities personal clothing (e.g. jackets, coats, sweaters) is not allowed to be placed in the overhead bins. All garments have to be put either inside the hand baggage or on the provided hooks at the front seat.

      We have adapted our baggage regulations for you so that every piece of hand luggage that complies with the rules (dims max 55x40x20cm and max 8kg) can now be checked in free of charge – even if you have booked a Light fare. We kindly recommend all passengers to deliver their handbag at the check-in counter, even if it is not mandatory anymore.

      This also applies to transit passengers in Germany who pass through security checks.

      Please bear in mind already when packing that you need to heed the information regarding dangerous goods in checked-in baggage.
