Why fly with Meridiana


To check-in with Meridiana Airlines, you can choose between one of two options. Checking-in online or via mobile becomes available to passengers from seven days until 2 hours before the scheduled time of departure. Passengers with no check-in baggage may then proceed to the security checkpoint directly. Passengers with check-in baggage will need to go to the Drop-Off desks where available, or to a Fly-pass desk to drop-off their baggage first. Alternatively, you can check-in at the airport. If you are opting for this method, take note of the different check-in counter opening and closing timings that can be found on their official website.

Baggage Allowances

Every passenger is entitled to one carry-on baggage of dimensions 55 x 40 x 20cm or less, weighing no more than 8kg. To make boarding procedures smoother and easier, consult the Meridiana Airline staff at the airport or via their call centre about the regulations and policies. Check-in baggage regulations differ depending on your destination and fare type. Flights operated by other carriers may also have different regulations and policies. To get a clear understanding of the category you fall under, you may choose to check against the official list provided by Meridiana Airlines or you may also choose to place a call to their Call Centre. If you expect yourself to bring baggage exceeding the regulated weight or number, you may also purchase excess baggage via the Call Centre.
