Checking In

We have strict check-in times that must be adhered to. Please don't be late!

Web Check-in is a free check-in service available between 72 hours and 1 hour prior to your scheduled departure time.

If using a desktop computer or tablet for Web Check-in, you will be required to print out your boarding pass and bring this with you to the airport on the day of travel. Please note that photos of your boarding pass will not be accepted.

If using Web Check-in on a mobile device, you can now view and save your mobile boarding pass directly to your phone and simply show this when boarding your flight at the airport. Alternatively, you can also check-in via our Web Check-in on Desktop or tablet and email yourself the boarding passes. Please open the email and click the link on your mobile device to view your mobile boarding pass.

If you do not have access to Web Check-in prior to your flight, please visit an airport kiosk or one of our airport agents located in the check-in terminal of your departure airport. This service strictly closes 45 minutes prior to scheduled departure time. We recommend arriving at least 90 minutes before departure to avoid missing your flight.

If you have completed Web Check-in (checked-in online) and have checked baggage, you will need to visit the bag drop area before boarding. Domestic bag drop closes 45 minutes prior to scheduled departure so please allow enough time to complete this step.

If you have completed Web Check-in (checked-in online) and only have carry-on baggage, you can proceed straight to the gate. Please arrive at the boarding gate 30 minutes prior to departure for domestic travel.

Currently Web Check-in is not available for bookings with the below services

Any booking that has special assistance services required
Any booking that has an infant listed as travelling
Customers who are unable to Web-Check-in need to do so at the airport.

Please note that in any case, domestic airport check-in strictly closes 45 minutes prior to scheduled departure time. We recommend arriving 90 minutes prior to scheduled departure to avoid missing your flight as this will result in forfeiting your fare.
