Bergamo Airport Departures Procedures

As with any International airport, passengers wishing to board a flight from Bergamo Airport will first be required to Check-In for their flight first. If you are flying from Bergamo Airport you will need to either Check-In at the airport or Check-In online before you leave for the airport.

It is recommended you arrive at the airport at least two hours prior to your departure time.

Check-In Area At Bergamo Airport

Bergamo airport is not the largest of airports and at peak times, the departures area can become a little crowded. However, the staff at the airport do their best to make sure the process moves as quickly as possible.

The Check-In desks at Bergamo Airport are situated on the Ground floor level of the airport. The buses, coaches and taxis all drop passengers off outside the Departures area and this makes it very easy to access the Departures Lobby. Once you enter the airport Terminal, the Check-In desks are located to the right at the end of the Terminal.

If you require your suitcase to be wrapped in protective wrapping, there is a wrapping service available in the Departures area.

There are 46 Check-In desks inside the Departures area.

Once you enter the departures area, you will need to find the correct Check-In desks for your flight. Every flight departure from Bergamo Airport is allocated  a set number of Check-In desks and you can check which desks have been allocated for your flight by looking at the overhead monitors in the Departures area.

Many airlines now allow passengers to Check-In for their flight online and if you have Checked-In online and are only carrying hand luggage onboard the aircraft, you will not be required to go to the Check-In desks. You can make your way to passport control and security. If you have hold luggage, you must check it in at the check-in desk which is allocated.

Please Note: If you do Check-In for your flight online, ensure that you print off your Boarding Pass before you leave for the airport and ensure you have it with you. Failure to show your Boarding Pass will result in the airline having to issue you with a new Board Pass and this is not cheap and can cost up to £100.
