In order to check in and board a plane, passengers must have their flight details, including: full name as it is listed on the boarding pass, departure details, flight number and other details, a valid ID and a passport for international travelers.

Depending on the airline and type of flight, check in at the kiosk or concierge counter of the airline. Most airlines require passengers to arrive at the airport and check in at least 45 minutes before domestic flights and 90 minutes before international flights. Present the printed boarding pass to the concierge or print a new one. A valid ID is required for check in and for getting through security. Check in all present travelers, including infants under two who are riding in a lap.

If traveling with large bags, check the additional bags while checking in. Pay additional fees, if applicable. Ensure carry-on bags meet all size and number requirements. After the check in process, proceed to security with boarding pass and ID in-hand.
