Alicante Airport Lost and Found

There is no special dedicated “Lost and Found” desk at Alicante office. Instead lost and found items are handled by an office of the local police ( policia local Elche). The office is located at the arrival area, just to the left of the arriving exit, where incoming passengers arrive.

Note we are talking about the local police of the city of Elche, not the city of Alicante, since Alicante airport is part of the Elche municipality.

Please be aware the lost and found office is only dealing with items you lost at the airport building itself, it is NOT dealing with any items you lost on the plane. It is also NOT dealing with any delayed or lost luggage from a flight (see below).

Damaged Luggage

Once you have collected your bags off the carousel, check them immediately for damage or other signs of tampering or mishandling. Report any damage before leaving the airport; airline customer service agents will need to inspect the bag - airlines won’t cover normal wear and tear.

Stolen Luggage

Go to the baggage carousel when you get off your flight to minimize the potential time for your bag to be stolen. Most airlines scan luggage when they are loaded into the baggage claim area and records are kept especially at very busy airports.  If your bag goes missing after you’ve left the baggage claim area, your claim is no longer with the airline, but with the police. Your travel insurance or homeowner’s insurance  may cover a stolen suitcase; (check the small print).

Delayed Luggage

Most airlines have ways to track your luggage, and the vast majority of misplaced luggage is returned. If your bags have been placed on the next flight by mistake, you should have them within a few hours. If they’ve been sent to the wrong airport...... it could take a few days.

File your claim immediately whilst at the airport and give the attendant details of where you are staying or your home address, and phone numbers.

The airlines will sometimes bring you your luggage when it is found; you will rarely need to return to the airport to pick it up and some airlines may reimburse any unexpected expenses caused by the loss or delay so keep all your receipts in case they are requested.
