Online and mobile check-in
Reduce contact and skip the stress of queues. Get through the airport faster for a better travel experience.
Can I check in online?
Online check-in is open 24 hours before the scheduled departure of your flight. Please note, once you have checked in online you are unable to cancel your check-in. If you have checked in and you do not plan to fly, please contact us.
- If online check-in is available for your flight, you will need to ensure you have all the visa entry and border declarations required for your flight.
- If online check-in is not available for your flight, check-in will need to be manually completed at the airport. Please make sure you give yourself plenty of time at the airport to complete the check-in process and clear security.
Why should I check in online?
- Select your seat
You can still choose your seat when you check in online or on your mobile
- Receive your boarding pass by email
You can print it at home, or at the check-in kiosks at the airport. If you're in New Zealand, we can scan your emailed boarding pass from your phone
- Print bag tags yourself
If you're checking in bags, head straight to a kiosk to print out your bag tags when you arrive at the airport. Then take your bags to the bag drop. Details on your flight's exact check-in timings are on your email or e-ticket. Note that these are closing times and they include dropping off your bags if you have them.
If you're unable to check in online, you'll need to check in at the airport so please allow some extra time.
