Lalona Air is a new German airline looking to launch in the first quarter of 2022. Initially, the airline is looking to serve 15 destinations within Europe including both domestic and international destinations. These destinations will be flown with a fleet of ATR72 aircraft.
As of June 2021, the airline still hasn't applied for their Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and the full details of the destinations they will serve haven't been announced yet. However, they are looking to serve destinations for business travellers from Düsseldorf Airport.
As of June 2021, the detailed plan of the destinations they will be flying to is unclear. However, the airline is looking to fly to 15 destinations from 2022 including both domestic and international destinations. Although it's unconfirmed, the airline may fly to Friedrichshafen, Usedom, Budapest or Geneva.
Information on the baggage allowance for the airline has yet to be announced.
Any items brought onboard must fit within the overhead compartments or under the seat in front. Otherwise, the airline will not permit the item to board the aircraft for safety reasons. The weight of the items must not exceed the airline's carry-on permitted weight, or it'd either be charged or asked to be transported as checked baggage.
Prohibited items cannot be carried onboard including any fluid exceeding 100ml. Fluid must be placed in a plastic container for airport security. Alternatively, passengers can transport any fluid in their checked baggage.
As a general rule, any baggage exceeding 32kg or larger than the checked baggage dimensions must not be transported as checked baggage. Oversize baggage will be charged extra by the airline and it may potentially require approval from the airline.
Lalona Air's online check-in policy hasn't been announced yet.
If online check-in is available for the airline, passengers are advised to check-in online before arriving at the airport. This will save time from queuing at the airport and passengers may be able to obtain their boarding passes once online check-in has been completed.
Lalona Air's airport check-in policy hasn't been announced yet.
Once passengers arrived at the airport, they are recommended to report directly to the airline check-in counters to check-in their baggage and take their boarding pass.
At Alternative Airlines, we recommend passengers to arrive at the airport two hours before the check-in deadline to give themselves sufficient time to check-in and board the aircraft.
Lalona Air hasn't confirmed if they'll offer passengers a frequent flyer programme yet.
Lalona Air isn't planning to join any airline alliances.
As of June 2021, Lalona Air is planning to fly with a fleet of ATR72 when they launched. The ATR72 is a twin-turboprop aircraft with a seating capacity of around 75 passengers.
