We recommend you do the check-in in advance to save time and to avoid queues at the airport. 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 Finnair app (available for iOS and Android).
In case you checked in in advance and you already have your boarding pass, you can go directly to the bag drop or to your boarding gate via security. Please remember to print your bag tag at the check-in kiosk before dropping your baggage at the self-service counter. Depending on your destination’s travel requirements, we may check your coronavirus related documents at the boarding gate.
If you checked in in advance but did not get a boarding pass yet and you are required to present coronavirus related documents before your flight, please show them to our ground crew in the check-in area to receive your boarding pass. Please reserve enough time for this extra check. We advise you to arrive at the airport 2 hours before your departure or 3 hours before when departing for the USA.
