It’s important to be aware of this fact: the entrance to the airport it’s only for the actual travelers, people with boarding passes, staff from the airport or justified accompanists (for example kids traveling alone or people with reduced mobility).

Before traveling we recommend consulting the airlines website about the conditions regarding the carry-on luggage, because there are some of them who don’t allow carry-on luggage in the cabin.
