Deadlines



A punctual flight schedule is one of your top priorities, and it is one of ours as well.


You can help us keep to schedule by remembering the following 3 deadlines each time you fly:
  • your Check-In Deadline: This is the time limit beyond which you can no longer check in for your flight nor check in your baggage,
  • your Boarding Deadline: the time at which you must proceed to boarding,
  • your Departure time: the time your aircraft pushes back from the gate before takeoff. You can view updated flight times (departures and arrivals) in real time on the “Flight times” page.

Check-In Deadline

Departures from countries other than metropolitan France

The drop-down menu below displays Check-in Deadlines according to your departure airport (outside of metropolitan France) and your destination.


Please accompany your child to the check-in counter at least 30 minutes before the flight’s Check-In Deadline. Otherwise, he or she will not be allowed to board.

Departures from metropolitan France

The drop-down menu below displays Check-in Deadlines according to your departure airport within metropolitan France and your destination.


Please accompany your child to the check-in counter at least 30 minutes before the flight’s Check-In Deadline. Otherwise, he or she will not be allowed to board.

Boarding Deadline (or last call)

If you use online or mobile telephone check-in and do not need to check any baggage, you can arrive at the airport a bit later than other passengers. However, you must still respect the Boarding Deadline, after which you are no longer guaranteed boarding:
  • 15 minutes before your flight’s departure time, between Paris-Orly and metropolitan France destinations.
  • 20 minutes before your flight’s departure time, between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and medium-haul or metropolitan France destinations.
  • 40 minutes before your flight’s departure time, for long-haul destinations.
