Check-in Requirements

Some airports require different check-in times. To ensure that you or your clients are there on time review the Check-in Requirements section of and note the "check-in time exceptions" section. In addition, review the check-in option to determine which method of check-in best fits the needs of the customer.

Here are a couple of other special check-in requirements:
