Q. How do I check in for my flight?

Please ensure the names on your travel documents are as per your passport. If you need to make any changes, Customer Contact Centre on 03453 555 111 (local call charges apply).  Incorrect name details could result in you being denied boarding by the airline, as security checks are usually carried out 24-48 hours in advance of flight departure.

You should also ensure that your passport details are entered into Cruise Personaliser to avoid any delays at check-in.


Charter flight check-in

Check-in for our charter flights is available at the airport on the day of departure only. It is not possible to check your baggage in the night before you travel on any of our charter flights, even if it is a service usually offered by the airline.

In the UK check-in opens approximately three hours prior to flight departure and closes approximately one hour before departure. Please be aware that even if you have pre-booked your seats using Flight Seat Booker, you are still required to check in at the airport.
