Most of us love to travel, but sometimes the whole pre-arrival process can take away a bit of the fantasy of travelling to a new destination. Long lines at the airport check-in desks are dreaded by nearly everyone, so to lessen this burden and wait times, many airlines offer online check-in so you can skip the lines and go straight to the baggage drop or directly to the security checkpoint if you’re travelling with only hand luggage.
The advantages of checking-in online for your flight are obvious; with just a few clicks you can save yourself a seemingly endless queue all from the comfort of your home, office or even on the road. In addition, online check-in lets you choose your seat so there’s no more “got the middle seat again” surprises.
Step-by-step guide for web check-in
- To check-in online all you need is your name, surname and flight booking number, which is a 6-digit alphanumeric combination. If the airline asks for an e-ticket number, you can conveniently consult it here: www.checkmytrip.com
- Once you have entered your personal information and completed online check-in, you will be able to print or save the boarding pass on your smartphone.
- Passengers travelling with only hand luggage can skip the airport check-in desk and go straight to airport security.
- Depending on the airline, online check-in is normally available at least 24 hours before scheduled flight departure. You can find more information about the exact time by airline on our Opodo online check-in page.
