Deadlines for check-in and boarding

- our best advice: be on time!
Check-in deadlines

  • Find the check-in deadlines for where you are flying below.


  • Be at the gate no later than 20 minutes before departure time. For travel outside Europe, the deadline is 25 minutes.


  • Give yourself enough time to pass through security control so you don't miss your flight. Remember, there can be long queues.


  • Even if you have a pre-reserved seat, we recommend that you check in according to the deadlines below to ensure that you get the seat you have chosen.
