Why Fly with Lauda Air Italia

How to Check in

Checking in to Lauda Air Italia was possible only by visiting a check in counter at the airport as the airline did not support online check ins. As the airline primarily operated long distance services across continents, it was necessary to arrive at the airport well in advance of flights in order to go through the check in process. Check in counter opening times can always vary from airport to airport, so if you are unsure you should always contact the airline before your journey.

Baggage Allowances and Fees

While some airlines offer baggage allowances included in the price of your fare, other airlines choose to operate a ‘pay for what you need’ model where travelers can purchase an amount of baggage that suits their requirements. For all flights you should make sure you check your baggage allowances so that you don’t exceed your limit as this can incur costly fees. As well as checked baggage, most airlines also allow passengers to bring a small amount of hand baggage on board flights at no extra cost. If you don’t want to pay for checked baggage fees, you can pack lightly and bring what you need with you on board - just be sure not to go over your hand baggage limit.


The Lauda Air Italia fleet initially consisted of 3 Boeing 767-200 aircraft, a mid-to-large size aircraft specialized in flying long haul routes. Eventually the airline replaced its Boeing fleet with three Airbus A330-200. This plane is capable of sitting around 250 passengers and is able to fly close to 13,400km per trip. Passengers in all cabin classes can enjoy a pleasant and comfortable journey with ample legroom afforded to al on the Airbus A330-200.
