Online Check-in

Available starting from 30 hours* before your flight's departure, online check-in enables you to confirm your presence and choose your seat. Check-in is complete when you receive your boarding pass,
which you need to board your flight!
Once you arrive at the airport, you simply need to leave your baggage at the baggage counter.

* 24 hours before all flights provided by Delta Air Lines departing from the United States,
as well as Air France flights departing from Atlanta, Detroit and Minneapolis

With automatic check-in, you no longer need to check in! You automatically receive your boarding pass by e-mail or on your mobile phone.

What is automatic check-in?

Automatic check-in is a useful service that helps you save time: you automatically receive your boarding pass 30 hours before departure. No need to check in!

To use this service, simply book your flight on www.airfrance.com. The service is currently available for most of our flights for both departure and return.

How does it work?

Indicate your seat preference when booking online. You will then automatically receive your boarding pass 30 hours before your flight by e-mail.

Don’t forget to print your boarding pass at home or at the airport via the interactive kiosks.
Please note:
  • If you are traveling in the Economy cabin, you receive this service automatically.
  • If you are traveling in another cabin, you can choose to automatically receive your boarding pass.
  • If your return flight departs within 18 hours of your arrival, you will receive your departure and return boarding passes in the same e-mail.
  • If you booked tickets for other passengers, all boarding passes will be sent to the e-mail address you provided during booking.

Manage your trip from seat changes to additional Baggage Options!

Once you have received the check-in confirmation e-mail, you can log in to your Online Check-In space to:
  • change your seat,
  • purchase an additional Baggage Option at a discounted rate (at least 20% off the airport rate),
  • cancel your check-in in just a few clicks, if you can no longer take your flight.

Arriving at the airport

Drop off your baggage at the "Baggage drop-off" counter before your flight's Check-in Deadline.
Want to save time during baggage check-in? Tag your baggage items at an interactive kiosk!
  • If you already have your boarding pass (printed at home or on your mobile phone): scan your boarding pass and print your baggage tags.
  • If you do not have your boarding pass: print it, along with your baggage tags, using a self-service kiosk.
Then, you simply need to leave your baggage at the baggage drop-off counter and head to your flight’s departure gate.

If you are traveling without checked baggage, you can proceed directly to your flight’s boarding gate before the boarding deadline. Please note that after this time, no additional passengers will be able to board the aircraft.
Drop off your baggage at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport the day before your trip!
For flights departing from Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport, save time by dropping off your baggage at the airport the day before your trip. On the day of your flight, proceed directly your flight’s boarding gate and board your flight without stopping at the baggage drop-off counter!
