Enjoy your first taste of Italy onboard Alitalia’s Premium Economy. A welcome drink will greet you, followed by traditional Italian dishes at every meal, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Pair your cuisine with a carefully selected glass of wine, or a soft drink, tea or hot beverage. Add one more touch of Italy with an espresso or limoncello to end your meal.

Tips / Travel

By now, most people are familiar with the liquid restrictions for carry-on luggage put in place by the Transportation Security Administration. While you may know what size face wash to pack in your bag, did you know there are rules for what food and beverages you can pack?


Here are some items you can and can’t bring with you on a plane:



  • Dried goods: Items like pasta, grains and spices are allowed as long as they don’t contain any liquid.
  • Packaged snacks: Feel free to bring your fruit snacks, granola bars, nuts and cookies in your carry-on bag.
  • Solid cheese: If you’re bringing cheese on board, make sure it’s a hard variety.
  • Baby food: Baby food, formula and breast milk are permitted on board. However, there are some special instructions to consider, so check the website prior to your trip.



  • Creamy cheese: Creamy cheeses more than 3.4 ounces are not permitted in your carry-on bag.
  • Alcohol more than 140 proof: Regardless of whether it adheres to the 3.4-ounce rule, you are not permitted to fly with these beverages in your checked or carry-on luggage.
  • Canned goods: Some canned goods are permitted, but many are not. Leave these items at home to prevent extra security screenings.


For a comprehensive list of all permitted and restricted food and beverages, check the TSA website.
