Automatic check-in

Save time before the departure of your flight and leave the check-in to us: if you have not done the check-in online, we will automatically do the check-in for you and send your boarding pass to your mobile phone.

If your flight departs in the morning, you will receive the check-in confirmation between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the previous evening. If your flight departs in the afternoon, you will receive the confirmation approximately three hours before the flight departure.

How to register for automatic check-in

You can start using the service by adding your mobile phone number to your Finnair Plus profile. Please remember to update your mobile phone number if it changes.

You will also receive the service if you give your mobile phone number when making the reservation.

    How to check in

  • You will receive a text message with the check-in confirmation including your seat number and a link to your mobile boarding pass.
  • If you want to change your seat or do the check-in for people travelling with you, you can easily do it using the link in the mobile boarding pass or online at the Finnair website.
