Most airlines allow passengers to check in online on their website prior to travelling to the airport. You will receive your boarding pass when checking in, allowing you to proceed directly to the security checkpoints if you are only travelling with carry-on luggage.
Remember to print off all your travel documents (e-ticket, boarding pass, etc.). Please note that some airlines charge a fee to reissue boarding passes at the airport.
With mobile online check-in, you can check in and receive your boarding pass on your mobile device via e-mail, SMS or mobile applications.
The airport security checkpoints are equipped with a reader that automatically detects the data codes sent by the mobile carrier.
Passengers accessing boarding areas must pass through a metal-detector arch at a security checkpoint and their hand luggage and any other objects that they are carrying (coats, jackets, mobile phones, keys) must undergo an x-ray inspection.
Before going through the security checkpoint, passengers will be asked for their boarding pass.
To help objects pass through the scanner, particularly in the case of small articles, you must use the special trays available to passengers.
If the destination of your flight is a non-Schengen country, you must go through document control.
The basic travel document is a passport, although you can travel to some countries with a National ID card (DNI). Some countries also require a visa, vaccination certificate, passport valid for 6 months after the date of arrival, etc. Please ask your airline.
