Check-in at the airport

In case you haven’t checked in for your flight online before arriving at the airport, you can check in using the self-service check-in kiosks at the airport. You can also check in at a check-in desk if there are no self-service check-in kiosks at the airport. The airport monitors will show you which check-in desks you can use to check in for your particular flight.

For check-in opening and closing times, see Check-in times.

Please note that if you are travelling on a flight operated by an airline other than Finnair or Norra, you need to check-in at the operating airline’s online service/self-service kiosk/check-in desk.
