KLM Online check-in

The KLM online check-in is available from 30 hours to 1 hour before the scheduled departure of your flight. For flights to the USA, the check-in can only be done from 24 hours before departure.

To check-in on the KLM website, you will need to provide the booking code and flight number. After logging in, select your flight, your seat and add any additional baggage (if needed). Conveniently, you can get your boarding pass via email in PDF format, or as an electronic ticket on your smartphone.

Mobile Check-in with KLM

The mobile check-in with KLM can be done directly on their website (following the steps described previously) or by using the KLM app available for iPhone and Android smartphones. Passengers have the same options in the app as online – select seat, add baggage and more.

Checking your luggage at the airport

If you need to check your luggage after doing the online check-in, you can do so at the airport. Go to the self-service kiosks, baggage drop-off points or check-in desks, which are open from 3 hours until 40 minutes before the departure.

Take into account that there might be a queue at the baggage drop-off points so arrive at the airport with enough time.

KLM Airport check-in

Check-in at the airport with KLM can easily be done at the check in kiosks by following the simple instructions and printing the boarding pass, or at the check in desks if your flight is departing on the same day.

Other details of KLM Check-in

If you’re travelling alone and want to know who will be the person sitting next to you, take a look at the “Meet & Seat” program.
