for a hassle-free journey!
Online check-in is a service offered by most airlines that brings numerous advantages. Not only do you save a lot of time, but also money. We have gathered the benefits of online check-in for you.
When you check in online from the comfort of your home, it saves you a significant amount of waiting time at the airport, especially considering that the queue at the check-in counter is always longer than expected. On the other hand, if you have already checked in online, you can skip this line and instead join the (often much shorter) queue for self-service baggage drop-off. This line tends to move much faster because everyone in it has already checked in online. All you need to do is place your baggage in the machine, and the automated system will print a baggage tag. Who wouldn’t want to wait less?
Pre-checking in online not only saves time but sometimes money as well. Some low-budget airlines charge a fee for checking in at the airport. These costs can quickly add up to tens of euros per person, which nobody wants to pay.
Who doesn’t know the struggle of wanting a window seat at any cost while others prefer an aisle seat? When you check in at the airport, it’s always a matter of waiting and hoping to get the seat of your preference. Online check-in eliminates this problem. Especially when you ensure to check in well in advance, you often have an extensive choice of available seats. Additionally, by checking in online, you can guarantee sitting next to your travel companions or securing that coveted seat near the emergency exit.
Unfortunately, it can happen that the flight you booked is overbooked. In such cases, passengers can be denied boarding. By checking in online in advance, this risk is significantly reduced. In this scenario, you have already been assigned a seat, increasing the likelihood that a passenger who hasn’t checked in yet will be denied boarding instead.
Online check-in gives you the flexibility to decide whether you want to print your boarding pass or save it digitally, such as in your phone’s wallet. This way, you not only ensure that you always have your boarding pass on hand, but also contribute to environmental sustainability.
