Why Fly with British Airways

How to Check In

British Airways provides its passengers several ways of checking in for their flights for their convenience and if they choose, from the comfort of their home. The airline recommends, to avoid long lines and waiting at the airport, to check-in online through their official website or their mobile application. Online and mobile app check-in services are available 24 hours before the scheduled departure time. Should you choose to check-in online, a boarding pass will be issued where you can print at home or one of the airport kiosks. If checking in through the app, boarding passes will be downloaded within the app. For those passengers who choose to check-in at the airport, self-check-in kiosks are also available at selected airports.

Baggage Allowance & Fees

British Airways offers complimentary baggage allowance on their flights. Checked baggage allowance depends on various factors such as the flight route booked, cabin class and frequent flyer membership. For most flights, Economy Class are allowed to check in up to one piece of luggage not exceeding the maximum weight of 23 kilogrammes or 51 pounds. Premium Economy passengers are allowed up to two pieces of luggage also not exceeding the maximum weight of 23 kilogrammes or 51 pounds.
