When you arrive at the airport, you can immediately check in or use our self check-in terminals, where available. With an e-ticket you can also enjoy the pleasure of using our online check-in tool.

How can I be sure that my reservation has been made correctly?
Once you have selected the combination of flights, dates, booking class, additional services that satisfy you, click on continue. You will be asked to enter your details and then provide payment information. Once you have confirmed, you will receive a confirmation email with a booking reference indicating that your reservation has been confirmed. Please remember that once the ticket has been reserved, you will no longer be able to make any changes to it (unless the terms and conditions of the fare specify that the ticket may be changed by making a payment/free of charge). See here our rules for changing a reservation.

I have not received a confirmation e-mail. Why is this?
This can occur for a number of different reasons. It may be that you have unfortunately entered your e-mail address incorrectly or that receipt of the confirmation e-mail has been delayed for one of a number of technical reasons. If you don’t receive a confirmation e-mail, you can contact our Service Centre to find out whether your web reservation has been successfully completed.
