Security check 

Security is our top priority at Bolzano airport. Even if security checks may seem a bit bothersome at times, they’re in place to guarantee your safety. Please arrive at the airport with enough time to spare for check-in and security checks. Here’s some information on how security checks normally work:  

Hold baggage

You can drop off your baggage at the check-in counter. Your pass or ID will be controlled, as well as the weight and labelling of your hold baggage. It is then passed through an X-ray machine. You cannot pack dangerous items as per EU Regulations. Please research which items aren’t allowed by asking the Italian Police Department or your airline.

Cabin baggage

Your cabin baggage’s weight and labelling will also be checked during your check-in. 

Passenger check

Passengers will also have to be checked before heading to their gate. Keep your boarding card and ID close by, place your cabin baggage on the conveyor belt of the X-ray machine. Place all metal objects, jackets, and scarves in the appropriate tray. A member of staff will wave you through the metal detector. Should you set the metal detector off, a member of staff will carry out a secondary check with a hand probe as well as patting you down. If your luggage flags up, it will be checked in front of you by a member of staff.


All passengers landing at Bolzano airport from countries not belonging to the European Union or which do not subscribe to the Schengen Agreement will have their passports checked. You can find further information here.
