Emirates check-in

Emirates offers a choice of check-in methods – your mobile phone or tablet, online, airport self-check-in machines, or at the check-in desk in the airport.

Passengers who demand certain services onboard the plane, or who are travelling with pets, have to check in at the airline counter in the airport you are departing from.

Emirates online check-in

Passengers may check in online from 48 hours prior to the scheduled departure, select a seat and print their boarding pass or have it sent to their mobile phone (first make sure mobile check-in is possible in the airport you are departing from).

To process online check-in for your flight with Emirates, please follow the link.

Emirates Airlines: check in with mobile

Checking in and downloading the boarding pass to your device is simple, efficient, and enables you to plan for your flight no matter where you happen to be. From 48 hours before departure, you can check in, reserve your seat, and get your boarding pass with your mobile phone. Always check the availability of mobile check-in in the airport of departure.

If you have an issue with your mobile boarding pass, you can go to the airline check-in desk or a check-in machine (if available) for a regular paper one. This additionally applies in the event your phone has problems, or your boarding pass is deleted.

Emirates flight check-in machines

These machines enable you to check in yourself at the airport. Check if the departure airport has check-in machines before your journey. You have the possibility to check in for your flight with your passport or by typing your last name plus your flight booking reference (this is on your booking confirmation), with most check-in machines.

Emirates check-in time: Deadlines

The point of check-in deadlines is to ensure flights take off punctually. Before the deadline you should have your boarding pass, however you checked in – in person, online, by using your mobile phone, or if you were automatically checked in – and baggage should also have been checked in.
