Online Check-In

Save time with our new online check-in service. The simple four step process allows you to check-in online in no time at all. It's quick, simple and secure. So now you can print your boarding pass at your own convenience whether it's from the comfort of your own home or office.

Our online check-in opens 24 hours before your scheduled international flight departure and closes 90 minutes before departure. We suggest arriving at the airport 2 hours before your flight departure to allow you time to drop any baggage, pass security screenings and board your flight. To use this service, your first flight will need to be operated by American Airlines, American Eagle, AmericanConnection, Iberia, British Airways or Japan Airlines.
