If you choose to receive your boarding pass by e-mail, do not forget to print your boarding pass at home or at the airport using a Self-Service Kiosk.

If you forget your mobile phone or delete the barcode by mistake, you can print your boarding pass using a Self-Service Kiosk.

Please note:
  • If you are traveling in the Economy cabin, you receive this service automatically.
  • If you are traveling in another cabin, you can choose to automatically receive your boarding pass.
