Modern air travel has been made more convenient by online check in. Online check in is a quick and very simple procedure that can be done anywhere where there is internet access and a printer. It saves time, costs and is more efficient. You are only required to log into the airline’s website to confirm your flight details.
You need to have your e-ticket for online check in so that you enter your name and reservation number. You will get a valid boarding pass which you have to print out. You should get a message that confirms you have been checked in. Some online check in services allow you to weigh your bags, printout your label tags and change your seat.
Once you have your boarding pass, you can skip the airport terminal once you get to the airport and instead head straight to the security checkpoint.
Most airlines will set a deadline for online check- in before flight.
