How do I check in for a flight online?

Online registration

will save time and reduce stress at the airport. Check-in usually opens 24 hours and ends 40 minutes before departure. The airline sends a letter to your mail with a link for registration. If suddenly the letter did not arrive, just go to the carrier's website, find the "Online registration" section there and follow the prompts.

When registering, you may need the following data:

  • surname and name of the passenger
  • booking code (or PNR - six-digit code) or e-ticket number - you can find it in the itinerary receipt (ticket) that came to the mail after booking
  • the e-mail that you provided when purchasing
  • departure airport
  • sometimes - date and time of departure, flight number

During registration, you can choose a seat. Sometimes it's free, but recently many airlines (especially low-cost airlines) have started asking for a separate fee. If you don't choose a seat, it will be chosen for you.

Boarding pass

After completing online check-in, you will receive your boarding pass by email. This is a document that must be presented at the airport. It contains all the information. Some airlines and airports accept digital boarding passes. That is, you do not need to print the document, save it on your phone. In some cases, you need to obtain a paper boarding pass at the airport. If you are flying without luggage, you do not need to go to the check-in counter. Just print the coupon in a special self-registration machine. Visually, these machines resemble ATM machines. Sometimes, online registration can save you not only time, but also money. For example, Ryanair will charge a € 50 fine per passenger if you have not checked in online or forgot to print your boarding pass.
