Boarding pass passenger name

As of the 1st of January, Belgian law requires all air operators to perform a conformity check between the name on your booking/boarding documents and the name on your identity card or passport. Conformity checks will be performed on all ASL operated flights to and from Belgium, also on intra-Schengen flights. All guests need to be in possession of an identity card or passport when boarding, including children and infants.

You will only be accepted to board your flight if the names on our operational documents (General Declarations/Passenger Manifests) and your identity card or passport match. Therefore, it is important that your official name is mentioned in your reservation. In case your name or the name of other passengers is misspelled, please don't hesitate to contact us via +32 (0)11 29 50 16 or via

Travel visa

Depending on your destination, a travel visa may be required to enter the country in addition to a valid passport. ASL may check for a valid visa before allowing passengers to board a flight. Immigration officers in certain countries will deny entry to travelers who do not have a valid travel visa. Contact our sales team for more details or for assistance regarding Travel Visa.

Dangerous goods, prohibited and restricted articles

Some items may endanger the safety of an aircraft or persons on board it. That is why transporting them as hand or checked baggage may be prohibited or restricted. In some cases, a prior approval is needed from the airline. Please read this information carefully and don’t hesitate to contact us via or 

ELECTRONIC DEVICES (e.g. smartphones, laptops, spare batteries and power banks) may be packed in your hand baggage or in checked baggage. In case your portable electronic devices (PEB) are placed in your checked baggage, we recommend you:

  • To switch them off and effectively protect them from accidental activation. To ensure the device is never powered on during transport, any applications, alarms or pre-set configurations that may activate the device have to be disabled or deactivated.
  • To protect your device from damage by applying suitable packaging or casing or by placing them a rigid bag protected by adequate cushioning (e.g. clothing).
  • To remove the power bank (if any) prior to check-in. Power banks can only be carried in carry-on baggage. 
  • For passengers travelling with smart baggage (devices including integrated lithium batteries, motors, power banks, RFID’s, Wi-Fi technology, electronic bag tags, etc.): remove spare lithium batteries and/or power banks before check-in and place them in your carry-on. Tracking systems inside the smart luggage must be designed with a minimum of 2 independent means to turn off completely, turn off cellular or mobile functions, or a combination of both when airborn. Passive RFID’s inside the smart luggage must comply with IATA RP1740C.
