Boasting a 28-strong fleet of aircraft, Germanwings mainly offers short and medium-haul flights in Germany but also transports passengers to destinations across Europe, Central America and Asia.

Online check-in

On Germanwings flights, passengers can check-in online from 27 hours prior to scheduled flight departure. During the online check-in process it is possible to check-in all passengers in the same booking, choose a seat and print out a boarding pass. Alternatively, it is possible to check-in on mobile devices either via your browser or the Germanwings app then opt for an electronic boarding pass or have it sent to your computer. Finally, from certain destinations, passengers can check-in at the airport check-in desks or use self-service check-in. Those travelling with hand luggage can proceed directly to airport security whilst checked bags will need to be left at the baggage drop-off counter.
