Conditions when travelling with more than one carrier

If you are travelling with Adria and another carrier on the same ticket ('interline travel'), the following conditions apply:

  • If the published provisions regarding the carriage of baggage are the same for both carriers, these provisions shall apply.
  • If the published provisions are not identical, common provisions shall apply but, where provisions are different, the rules of the Most Significant Carrier (MSC) shall apply.
  • In the case of codeshare flights, the MSC is, in most cases, the operating carrier.
  • If the MSC does not publish provisions for a specific type of carriage, the provisions of the operating carrier (i.e. the carrier that accepts the baggage at check-in) shall apply.
  • If the operating carrier does not publish provisions for a specific type of carriage, the rules of the operating carriers shall apply to each flight segment separately.

Always ensure that your baggage is protected against damage and marked with your contact details.
