Airport check-in

At the airport, you can check in and print your boarding pass at an interactive kiosk or a check-in counter.
You can check in at an interactive kiosk:
- the day of your flight and up to your check-in deadline,
- alone or with others,
- with or without baggage,
- with a reduced rate* (proof must be presented upon boarding),
- for a trip with a connecting flight.

* Student, youth, child, couple/family, senior, convention/exhibition, naval officer, tour operator, offshore, NGO or student from Corsica.

Save time with EXPRESS drop-off

At the airport, visit an interactive kiosk to self-tag your baggage items.
  • If you have not already checked in: you can check in via the kiosk, then self-tag your baggage items and print your boarding pass.
  • If you checked in online and already have your boarding pass (printed at home or saved on your mobile phone): you can scan your boarding pass at the kiosk, and then self-tag your baggage items.
  • If you checked in online but do not have your boarding pass: you can print it at the kiosk and self-tag your baggage.
You can proceed directly to the baggage drop-off counter by following the EXPRESS signs. An agent will then take your baggage.
Check-in is complete. You can now go to the boarding area!

EXPRESS drop-off is available in the following airports: Paris-Charles de Gaulle (Terminals 2E, 2F and 2G), Paris-Orly, Ajaccio, Bastia, Biarritz, Bordeaux, Brest, Lyon, Montpellier, Mulhouse, Nantes, Nice, Pau, Strasbourg, Toulon and Toulouse. The service will gradually be extended to most other airports in metropolitan France.

How do I check in at an interactive kiosk?

At the interactive kiosk, simply introduce your Flying Blue card or debit or credit card with your first and last name (even if it was not used to pay for your ticket), or enter your e-ticket or reservation number. At certain kiosks, you can also identify yourself by scanning your passport.

Once the system has identified you:
  • the interactive kiosk will retrieve your electronic ticket from our database,
  • you can choose or confirm your seat on the cabin map,
  • the kiosk will print your boarding pass.
If you need to check in your baggage, simply take it to the "baggage drop-off" counter.

Practical information

At interactive kiosks, you can also:
- print a trip summary to keep your main trip information with you,
- check in for your return flight, if it departs within 24 hours of your arrival,
- choose an earlier flight time departing the same day, if you have a modifiable ticket (additional fees can be paid at the interactive kiosk),*
- verify that your Flying Blue card number has been registered for your flight,
- book and purchase options for your trip (Baggage Options and Seat Options).

Please note: you receive a 20% discount on the airport price if you purchase your Baggage Option online. You can also use Flying Blue Miles to purchase your Baggage Option.

* Paying at interactive kiosks is available in France and the United States (except Chicago) only.

Regardless of your check-in method, please be sure to respect the Check-In Deadline, the time limit beyond which you can no longer check in for your flight nor check in your baggage. The Check-In Deadline varies from 15 to 90 minutes before departure time, depending on your departure and arrival airport.
