Departing Milan Airport for Spain - check in time

Is it ok to check in at Milan Airport only one hour before departing on a flight to Spain or should I allow longer?

Personally I'd allow a bit longer. Not sure how far you've got to travel to the airport but there is always the possibilty of delays on the way there.

Also which airline. Is it possible for you to check in online before you get to the airport?

I suggest you ask the airline what time they close check in.

Which airline? Which Milan Airport (there are three)? And will you have baggage to check?

I would plan to arrive much earlier than one hour before departure (at least 2 hours). What if you're delayed en route to the airport? Planning to arrive at T - 2hr allows for some delay en route. Planning to arrive at T - 1hr, and being delayed by as little as 20 minutes and you could be toast (miss cut off, ticket canceled, have to buy a new one at the walk up fare).
