Riga, 11.05.2016.

Latvian airline airBaltic has improved its online check-in system, allowing passengers to check-in for their flights up to five days before departure.

“This is good news for our customers. Now airBaltic passengers can check-in and choose their preferred seats much earlier, up to five days before their scheduled departure,’’ said Laura Vecvanaga, Vice President Ground Operations and Customer Care at airBaltic.

The improved check-in service is available online at www.airbaltic.com. Online check-in is now available up to five days (118 hours) before the scheduled flight, instead of three days, as it was previously. Online check-in is available until the check-in counter is closed at the departure airport. After checking in online, passengers who do not have check-in baggage can go straight to security control. Meanwhile, those passengers who have check-in baggage can drop it off at the designated baggage drop-off point.

Passengers who prefer personalised check-in service at the airport check-in desk, can choose to have it for a fee of EUR 30. Registration for free is also available at the self-check-in kiosks at Riga, Stockholm and Copenhagen airports.
