The Aegean Airlines check-in option is available from 48 hours to at least half an hour before scheduled take-off. Simply visit the site and choose the "check-in" option. The site will ask you for your ticket number and name before allowing you to choose your seat. Your boarding pass can be printed on paper or carried on your mobile phone.
