Check In to Your Flight

Check in online and have one less thing to worry about at the airport.

Please note: Not all airlines allow online check-in. Please contact your agent or check your airline’s website for specific policies.

When Should I Arrive at the Airport?

  • Domestic Flights: Arrive no later than two hours before your departure time. If you are departing on a busy holiday, or leaving from an unfamiliar airport, you may want to arrive even earlier.
  • International Flights: Most international airports recommend that you arrive at least three hours before your international flight’s departure time. Again, if you know you are departing during a busy time, or have any concerns about security wait times or check-in, you may want to get to the airport earlier, if only for peace of mind.

Questions or concerns about arrival time, airport procedures, or airline policies? Please contact your WorldTravelService® agent.
