Are there any special rules for pregnant women?
Flying is problem-free for women with uncomplicated pregnancies. All the same, we recommend pregnant women check in advance with their doctor about flying.
Until the end of the 36th week of pregnancy or up to 4 weeks before the due date, pregnant women with complication-free pregnancies can fly Air Dolomiti without a medical certificate.
From the 28th week of pregnancy, however, we recommend bringing a recent medical certificate containing:
• confirmation that the pregnancy is complication-free
• the expected due date
• the doctor must expressly state the patient’s pregnancy does not prevent her flying
In the event of twins or multiple pregnancies it is possible to fly until the end of the 28th week.

During take-off, landing and in the instance of turbulence, the animal must be fitted with a suitable safety harness (this must be provided by the owner) to allow the dog to safely remain next to the passenger accompanying it.
The dog must fit in the footspace of the owner’s seat: if the dog is too big to fit in front of the seat, the passenger may be offloaded or acceptance may be refused.
Since the number of animals that can be carried in the cabin is limited, please notify us promptly if you will be travelling with an assistance dog.
Please note that some countries have special provisions for the entry of animals. You are therefore advised to make inquiries well in advance.

Is an airline ticket valid in lieu of a receipt for claiming tax relief for expenses?
Can children fly unaccompanied? From what age are children allowed to travel alone?
** Updated information **
Until further notice, no new UMNR booking requests may be accepted on connecting flights with stopover at Munich or Frankfurt hubs (for example Verona-Frankfurt-London).
Currently special service for unaccompanied children can only be booked on point to point flights to Munich and Frankfurt (for example on Verona-Frankfurt flight).
Children who have reached 5 but not 12 years need not to be handled as UMNR if accompanied by a passenger of 12 years and older (for doubts, please verify with our Sales Center).
For Italian minors departing from Italian airports, flying abroad: minors aged between 5 and 13 years can only fly unescorted if they use the compulsory special service for unaccompanied children (UMNR service) or travel with a passenger aged at least 14 (if you have any questions, please contact our Sales Center).
The UMNR service is not compulsory but optional for all minors between the ages of 12 (14 for Italian minors) and 17.
All minors with Italian citizenship who use the UMNR service must be in possession of a "Dichiarazione di Affido" (delegation) entrusting them to the airline. This document must be requested from an Italian police station (not available from the airport police office); if the minor lives outside Italy, the document can be issued by an Italian embassy or consulate.
The delegation is not required for flights within Italy (for example charter flights Verona-Cagliari). In this case, the special service for unaccompanied children (UMNR) is compulsory for all the minors up to 12 years.
To apply for the UMNR service, please contact our Sales Center or the travel agency that made the reservation, providing the full details of the person accompanying the minor to the airport on departure and the person who will be waiting at the airport on arrival (name, surname, address, telephone number, degree of kinship).
Once on board, unaccompanied minors will be seated where the crew’s instructions can be seen and heard for the entire duration of the flight.
The special service for unaccompanied children (UMNR) has an additional charge, that applies per route and per child (even in the case of siblings travelling together):
|Flights within Italy and Europe||€ 85,00|
The outbound and return flights are counted as two separate flights.
Please note that other airlines' regulations for unaccompanied children can be different: if your planned journey includes flights operated by airlines other than Air Dolomiti, please verify directly with the respective airline about the rules applied for children travelling alone.
Can I choose and reserve my seat in advance?
Yes, you can book your preferred seats in advance paying a small surcharge. Air Dolomiti passengers can choose and reserve seats up to 52 hours before departure.
The advance seat reservation can be done only if the flight booking is confirmed (no waiting list bookings).
It is possible, for Air Dolomiti flights, to reserve preferred seats in advance directly during your flight booking or in a second step through the "Manage booking" section.
You can find all the information on optional, chargeable advance seat reservation in Economy Class in Seat Reservation area.
The seat reservation is free of charge for passengers in Business Class.
Seat selection free of charge during check-in
All the seats which are still available can, of course, be selected free of charge as soon as check-in for the relevant flight opens – usually from 23 hours before departure. Please note, however, that by this time the choice of seats may be limited.
Adding or changing a seat after booking your flight
You can book or change your seat reservation contacting Air Dolomiti Sales Center (+390452886140 Available Monday-Friday 8:30 am - 8:00 pm; Saturday-Sunday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm Except public holidays) or online, through the "Manage your booking" area. The booking or the change is possible up to 52 hours before departure.
Please note that changes are only possible on seats with the same or lower price and already paid charges will not be refunded.
Please note that a confirmed advance seat reservation does not give you a legal right to a particular seat on board the aircraft (e.g. seat 3A) but only to the selected category (e.g. aisle, window, seat with more legroom).
Operationally necessary seat changes
If Air Dolomiti has to change your seat reservation, for example because of a last-minute change to the aircraft type deployed, Air Dolomiti will do its best to reserve a new, equivalent seat for you automatically. In these cases priority is firstly given to passengers who are travelling together, such as families, so that they can still sit next to each other. After that, there is the allocation of seats with more legroom in the emergency exit rows and of aisle and window seats. If it is not possible to allocate you a new seat equivalent to your original, then you are entitled to a refund of the amount you paid for your seat reservation. Please contact Air Dolomiti Sales Center to arrange this. Where seat changes have to be made for operationally necessary reasons, you unfortunately have no legal right to a certain seat, only to the category, such as an aisle or window seat.
If you receive an upgrade from Air Dolomiti for operational reasons or as a gesture of goodwill, paid-for seat reservations cannot be refunded.
Ticket rebookings and refunds
You can change or cancel your airline ticket with an existing seat reservation contacting Air Dolomiti Sales Center.
If you have paid a fee for the seat reservation on the flight that you wish to change, Air Dolomiti will automatically try to book you an equivalent seat on your new flight. Please note that amounts already paid for seat reservations cannot be refunded if there are no seats or no equivalent seats available for reservation on the changed flight.
Should you wish to cancel your journey, paid-for seat reservations will automatically be taken into account and refunded according to the standard terms and conditions where applicable.
Paid-for seat reservations cannot be refunded if:
- you change your seat, but the new seat is cheaper than the one you originally booked or is free of charge;
- you rebook your flight, but there are no longer equivalent seats available on the new flight; seat reservations on the new flight are free of charge;
- you change your flight and in the process change the routing (no guarantee of equivalent seating).
Can I carry my personal wheelchair?
Please contact us at the time of booking your flight if you wish to travel with your own wheelchair. This can be embarked directly at the check-in counter on the day of the flight, tagged and stored in the hold. Carriage is free of charge.

When shall I complete a medical assistance form?
For some illnesses or disabilities (such as heart or lung conditions, strokes, etc.), injuries from accidents or chronic pain, fitness for air travel must be assessed by the Air Dolomiti Medical Service.
If there are doubts as to whether it is safe for you to fly, you or your doctor must apply in advance for an Air Dolomiti health assessment. A decision must be taken at least 48 hours before departure.

What is 3D Secure Code and how does it work?
3D Secure authentication is a fraud prevention service operated by the credit card companies and the banks. When you are shopping online, it gives you additional protection against the unauthorised use of your online registered card.
Air Dolomiti has implemented security purchase protocols “verified by Visa” and “Securcode by MasterCard” for all the payments that use these circuits.
You protect your card transaction by the addition of a personal password (SecureCode) or a transaction authorisation number sent to your mobile phone by SMS, so you can shop online without worrying. If you enter your SecureCode correctly, the system will verify that you are the legitimate cardholder and the payment process can then proceed.
Further information about the ‘3D Secure’ authentication service can be found on the website of your bank.
