What is a mobile boarding pass?

Mobile boarding pass is an electronic document that enables customers to pass security and board the aircraft by using their mobile device. Mobile boarding pass can be opened from an SMS or e-mail link in mobile browser or in Passbook application (iPhone with iOS6 or higher). In Passbook it can also be opened from an e-mail attachment.

You can send yourself a mobile boarding pass in online or mobile check-in or receive it from the automatic check-in when airport authorities at the departure airport have permitted the use of it. Otherwise you are asked to print a boarding pass or to pick it up from the check-in desk.

Mobile boarding pass requires internet connection when the boarding pass is opened to the browser or saved as Passbook. If you are not able to open the link, please pick up a paper boarding pass from the check-in desk.

Can I book a seat in advance? Do I have to pay for it?

You can reserve your seat in advance while reserving your flight or afterwards via the Manage booking service by signing in with your family name and booking code. You can use the service for flights operated and marketed by Finnair (the flight number in the ticket starts with AY and the ticket number starts with 105).

If you prefer not to pay for the seats, you can choose them free of charge from those that are still available at the time of check-in. Online check-in opens 36 h before departure.
