Avoid the queues at the airport and check in for your flight online, or let us check you in automatically.

Online and mobile check-in

Check-in online on your computer or mobile device and avoid the queues. Online check-in opens 36 hours before departure (24 hours for flights to/from the United States), and the service is available 24 hours a day, wherever you are.

You can also easily check in with the Finnair app (available for iOS and Android).

Which flights does the service apply to?

  • All Finnair operated flights departing from Finland and from most destinations abroad – also when the journey includes a connecting flight.
  • If you are travelling on a flight operated by an airline other than Finnair or Norra, you need to check-in in the operating airline’s online service or at their self-service kiosk or check-in desk.
  • Please note that Finnair does not have online check-in in the following airports: Dalaman, Dubrovnik, Rimini, Salzburg and Split.

How to check in online

Automatic check-in

Save time before the departure of your flight and leave the check-in to us: if you haven't checked in online, we will automatically check you in six hours before your flight and send your boarding pass to your mobile phone. 

How to register for automatic check-in

You can use the service by adding your mobile phone number to your Finnair Plus profile, or including it on your flight reservation. Please remember to update your number if it changes.

How automatic check-in works

  • You will receive a text message with the check-in information, including your seat number and a link to your mobile boarding pass.
  • If you want to change your seat or check in people travelling with you, you can easily do it using the link in the mobile boarding pass or online. Your check-in can also be modified at the Finnair self-service check-in kiosks at the airport (excluding London Heathrow and Copenhagen airports).
  • Open your mobile boarding pass before security check and use it as your identifier.

In order to use a mobile boarding pass, you must have a functioning internet connection. If you don't, please pick up a printed boarding pass from the Bag Drop desk at the airport.
