If the airline offers such a service, you get a chance to choose more comfortable seats on the plane. For this purpose, all you need is to go to the “Flight check-in” tab and select the respective airline, enter the check-in details (it can be the ticket number, the surname or the booking confirmation code), select the seat and print out the boarding pass. Please note that for printing out the boarding pass at the airport, some airlines may charge an extra fee, which has to be paid before the departure, therefore, we advise you to print it out in advance. You don’t need to worry; your Travellizy team will be glad to do the flight check-in in good time and send the boarding pass to the e-mail address specified by you. Note that for certain airlines, even having the boarding pass available, it is still necessary to appear at the check-in desk at the airport and to go through some formalities, including the luggage check-in.
Check-in at the airport. Self-check-in.
You may come across special airline counters, where you can do the check-in on your own having scanned your passport and/or the boarding pass and even print out the luggage tag for transportation of your luggage. However, availability of such check-in counters depends on the airport and the specific carrier. Classical flight check-in at the airport is a check-in desk with the indication of your flight number where the airline representative welcomes you, checks your documents necessary to cross the border, issues a boarding pass and checks in your luggage.
When purchasing air tickets and opting for a certain tariff, you should pay attention to what is included in the price and whether there is a list of services paid for additionally. To expand their customer base, many airlines have introduced the tariffs allowing taking only the hand luggage on board. The requirements for such type of luggage depend on the carrier but most often, it is 1 place weighing 5 to 7 kg, the maximum size is 115 cm (55х40х20 cm) for the economy class of service and 9 to 12 kg for the business class (which depends on the specific carrier). If after paying the fare for transportation of the hand luggage only, you have nevertheless decided that you need to take the normal luggage, it is possible to arrange purchase of such a service in advance or directly at the airport before the departure. But sometimes you might be better off formalizing the purchase of this service at least 24 hours prior to the departure and our team members will be happy to help you with it.
If you have purchased a ticket, which price includes the luggage transportation, you can find the following designations:
- Piece concept which means transportation of one or several luggage pieces (depends on the fare you paid and the carrier, the quantity is additionally specified in your air ticket). It should be noted that there are also weight restrictions in this case. Most often, it is a bag weighing 20 to 23 kg for the economy class of service and 32 to 40 kg for the business class.
- Weight concept means that in your air ticket you will see the weight restriction in kilograms at once.
Luggage for the younger members of your family.
Babies and children under two years are entitled to the luggage up to 10 kg (if it is included in the air ticket price) and on top of it for the comfort of all family members, you can take with you 1 small collapsible stroller or 1 cradle or 1 baby car seat irrespective of the class of service and the tariff (also, if the ticket doesn't include free luggage allowance). Details should always be clarified with the airline of your choice. Even if you have used the services of a certain airline before, prior to departure, it is worthwhile checking whether or not the luggage transportation rules have changed.
Children of two and more years old are allowed to carry the same amount of luggage as an adult passenger.
When doing a check-in at the airport, the airline employee weighs your luggage, issues a special luggage tag (that you can track its location with, if misplaced) and accepts this luggage for transportation. Some Self-check in counters allow to weigh the luggage on your own and to print out the luggage tag automatically. In that case, you should attach the luggage tag to the handle of your suitcase and pass to the counter of luggage self-check in. Make sure that exactly your destination is specified in your luggage tag.
Packing and safety of your luggage.
For a pleasant beginning of your journey, it is worthwhile to consider packing the luggage. Such an opportunity is available at the airport for some fee which varies from one point of departure to the other. Otherwise, you can buy standard wrappers (protective covers) for suitcases in advance which will preserve cleanliness and appearance of your luggage.
Luggage and hand luggage allowance.
If you find yourself in such a situation, you shouldn't be upset; you need to clearly understand those actions which must be undertaken to resolve the matter as soon as possible. Right after you have found out, that your luggage is missing, or discovered, that it is damaged, before leaving the airport control zone, you should go to the LOST & FOUND counter. An employee of this service will help you to complete a Property Irregularity Report (PIR), inform about the terms and nuances of your luggage search, and provide the contact details. Pay attention to the code with which you will be able to keep track of your luggage. Such a procedure usually takes up to 3 days, but it depends on the specific carrier and the locality, where your luggage was delivered to.

PASSENGERS ON A JOURNEY INVOLVING AN ULTIMATE DESTINATION OR A STOP IN A COUNTRY OTHER THAN THE COUNTRY OF DEPARTURE ARE ADVISED THAT INTERNATIONAL TREATIES KNOWN AS THE MONTREAL CONVENTION, OR ITS PREDECESSOR, THE WARSAW CONVENTION, INCLUDING ITS AMENDMENTS (THE WARSAW CONVENTION SYSTEM), MAY APPLY TO THE ENTIRE JOURNEY, INCLUDING ANY PORTION THEREOF WITHIN A COUNTRY. FOR SUCH PASSENGERS, THE APPLICABLE TREATY, INCLUDING SPECIAL CONTRACTS OF CARRIAGE EMBODIED IN ANY APPLICABLE TARIFFS, GOVERNS AND MAY LIMIT THE LIABILITY OF THE CARRIER.
NOTICE of Liability Limitations
The Montreal Convention or the Warsaw Convention system may be applicable to your journey and these Conventions govern and may limit the liability of air carriers for death or bodily injury, for loss of or damage to baggage, and for delay. Where the Montreal Convention applies, the limits of liability are as follows:
1. There are no financial limits in respect of death or bodily injury.
2. In respect of destruction, loss of, or damage or delay to baggage, 1,288 Special Drawing Rights (approximately EUR 1,500; US $1,700) per passenger in most cases.
3. For damage occasioned by delay to your journey, 5,346 Special Drawing Rights (approximately EUR 6,600; US $7,300) per passenger in most cases.
EC Regulation No. 889/2002 requires European Community carriers to apply the provisions of the Montreal Convention limits to all carriage by them of passengers and their baggage by air. Many non-European Community carriers have elected to do so in respect of the carriage of passengers and their baggage.
Where the Warsaw Convention system applies, the following limits of liability may apply:
1. 16,600 Special Drawing Rights (approximately EUR 20,000; US $20,000) in respect of death or bodily injury if the Hague Protocol to the Convention applies, or 8,300 Special Drawing Rights (approximately EUR 10,000; US $10,000) if only the Warsaw Convention applies. Many carriers have voluntarily waived these limits in their entirety, and US regulations require that, for journeys to, from or with an agreed stopping place in the US, the limit may not be less than US $75,000.
2. 17 Special Drawing Rights (approximately EUR 20; US $20) per kg for loss of or damage or delay to checked baggage, and 332 Special Drawing Rights (approximately EUR 400; US $400) for unchecked baggage.
3. The carrier may also be liable for damage occasioned by delay.
Further information may be obtained from the carrier as to the limits applicable to your journey. If your journey involves carriage by different carriers, you should contact each carrier for information on the applicable limits of liability. Regardless of which Convention applies to your journey, you may benefit from a higher limit of liability for loss of, damage or delay to baggage by making at check-in a special declaration of the value of your baggage and paying any supplementary fee that may apply. Alternatively, if the value of your baggage exceeds the applicable limit of liability, you should fully insure it before you travel.

Baggage claims: Written notice to the carrier must be made within 7 days of the receipt of checked baggage in the case of damage, and, in the case of delay, within 21 days from the date on which it was placed at the disposal of the passenger.
