The check-in process tells the airline with which you will travel that the passenger has made the last process and is ready to boarding. In this procedure, the company assigns the passengers their seats on the aircraft and the luggage is checked in (if applicable).
Upon arrival at Seville airport, ask for the counter allocated to your airline; once there, give the airline staff your personal identification and/or passport, along with your ticket or the reservation's locator code, which consists of six numbers or letters and is given to you when you make your reservation.
If you have baggage to check in, it must be presented at the check-in counter, where it will be weighed and tagged. Once the check-in process has been completed, the passenger will be given a boarding card with printed information about his flight: expected time of flight, terminal, boarding area and gate, and the check-in baggage receipt.
Check-in and boarding: keep in mind
The passenger should be at the check-in counter at least with :
For No Schengen flights: 3 hours prior the departure scheduled time.
For Schengen and domestic flights: 2 hours prior the departure scheduled time.
Note that there might be many people at peak travel periods or special event dates.
Keep an eye on the information panels, as there may exceptionally occur last-minute changes.
If you have already checked in online: when you have your boarding pass printed out, your baggage is checked in at once. Ask if your airline has a quick check-in or baggage drop-off counter (for baggage drop-off only).
Never leave your baggage or bags unattended - always carry them with you.
Do not check in luggage from strangers in your name, nor take it with you as hand luggage, as you will be solely responsible for its contents upon any possible search at security controls.
Please make sure that you carry all of your belongings with you before leaving the check-in counter: personal documents, boarding pass, and ID or passport.
Make sure you do not carry open or unsealed liquids, gels, drinks, cans or soft drinks, as they may be rejected at the security checkpoint. Please refer to the regulations and security measures in this regard.
Check in online
To avoid queues at the time of airport check-in, many companies allow online check-in in advance, from your home, office or mobile device.
It is available 24-48 hours before the flight departure time and it closes 1-2 hours before departure. This system allows the airline to confirm the passenger assistance to the flight, and in most cases, the passenger can select the seat on the plane.
If you think your bags will exceed the baggage allowance, some airlines let you pre-purchase additional baggage allowance while check-in online. The excess baggage rates are lower during this process than in the airport counters.
How does the check-in online?
Visit your airline's website and look for Check-in area. Sometimes is enough with the flight locator and the surname of the passenger. Follow the instructions of the check-in online page to print the boarding pass, or receive this information on your mobile as a Bar Coded Boarding Pass -or BCBP.
The mobile boarding pass BCBP
The Bar Coded Boarding Pass, or mobile boarding pass, is an image with a 2D code that contains all the essential data of the flight and the passenger, in a readable form for the self-check-in machines at the airport. It is given by the airline in the last step of the check-in online.
