*If you’re travelling to or from this destination and your booking was paid for online by debit/credit card, you will not be able to check-in online. You’ll need to check-in at the airport.

Please note, online check-in restrictions apply to certain bookings (for example, multi-leg flights) and so for these bookings you will need to check in at the airport.

Check in online between 24 hours and 90 minutes prior to departure: simply choose your seat and print your boarding pass.

Please bear in mind that once you've checked in online, you won't be able to change your booking or add/ modify the optional extras on your booking.

If you have bags to check in, go to the bag drop desks 1, 2 or 3 so that they can be tagged and accepted for the flight. Then go straight to security and through to departures.

If you are travelling in business class, you can check in at the flydubai business class check-in counters 4 and 5 and, at selected airports, our priority services also provide a speedy path through security.

Remember, you will still need to pass through security at least 60 minutes before departure and be at the boarding gate no later than 30 minutes before departure. Otherwise you may miss your flight.

Mobile boarding pass

You now have the option to receive a mobile boarding pass to your mobile and tablet devices when travelling with flydubai from select airports. All you need to do is check in online up to 90 minutes before your flight and choose to have your boarding pass sent to your mobile. Simply enter your mobile number and we’ll send you a link via SMS to access your boarding pass. You can either take a snapshot of the boarding pass or save it to your device.
