The check-in process starts usually 2 hours before scheduled time of departure and ends 30-40 minutes before scheduled time of departure. Scheduled time of departure is the time published in the airport / airline schedule. Please check the times with your airline. Note in particular the strict rules of low-cost airlines. If you are traveling by charter flight, it is possible that you need to go to the check-in counter of your travel agency first. We therefore ask you to follow the instructions of your travel agency.
- Standard checking-in
Check-in counters are located in the departure hall and are identified by the flight number, destination and scheduled departure time. To check-in, you must have: a ticket (paper or electronic), voucher, possibly a reservation code and a valid travel document. At the check-in counter drop off your luggage to be checked in to the final destination, get a boarding pass and a baggage receipt. Than you proceed to the security.
- Internet check-in (online check-in)
If you have an electronic ticket, some airlines allow or even require you to check-in electronically from the comfort of your home from 48 hours to 3 hours before departure according to the rules of the specific airline. You should arrive at the check-in desk only to drop off your check-in baggage (i.e. baggage that will be loaded into the luggage compartment of the aircraft). If you have no checked baggage, you do not have to go to the check-in counter. Proceed directly to the security check.
Before passing the security check, your passport, boarding pass, quantity, size and weight of your hand luggage will be checked. Check with your carrier how many pieces of hand luggage, what size and weight you can bring with you on board! Rules for the weight and size of your baggage are very important!
Before boarding an aircraft, the airport staff will again check your passport, boarding pass, quantity, size and weight of your hand luggage.
