How far in advance can I check in for my flight?
Go to Solution.
You can check in for your flight up to 24 hours ahead of departure time, unless you purchase early bird check in.
You can check-in up to 24 hours in advance! If you add "EarlyBird Check-In", you will be automatically checked in, receive a better boarding position and have earlier access to the overhead bins.
