Even if the aircraft is positioned on the ground, for reasons of security, passengers who have not shown up in requested time limits may not be allowed to board on airplane.
After payment and confirmation of air ticket Passengers must perform check-in (registration for flight) to be able to board the airplane. Check-in can be made at the airport check-in desk of operator performing the flight, online or at airport check-in terminals.
At check-in you are required to provide the electronic ticket or confirmation number, a valid ID or passport, baggage / luggage to be weighed, and cabin baggage that must comply with cabin baggage weight and size restrictions.
After performing these operations, you will receive a boarding pass with the seat number and flight details.
