- Use our convenient and free online check-inwherever possible
- Arrive at the airport in a good time:Here you can find the airport check-in times. Please arrange your arrival time at the departure airport according to these check-in times. Timely arrival is especially important for flights departing from the airports where night curfew is applied.
- Minimize the amount of baggage you will take with you: If possible, reduce the amount of your baggage and ensure that it does not contain any prohibited items
- Have your travel documents ready at all times
- Inform us about your special service requests in advance: Due to limited availability, kindly let us know your special assistance request until 48 hours before departure.
- After check-in, please go straight to passport and security control. Then, make your way directly to the departure gate.
- Schedule your onward journey with enough connecting time: Your flight might be delayed or your baggage may take longer than usual to arrive at the baggage claim. Please spare enough time for your airport pick-up arrangements when booking your onward travel (e.g. train ticket)
We hope that these hints help you have a better experience on the ground, just like your experience with us up in the skies!
