Online check-in and booking frequently asked questions

What is online check-in and how do I do it? Learn more

Online check-in is something that can be completed between 24 hours to 90 minutes before your flight using the Turkish Airlines website or mobile application. You can easily check-in online by entering your reservation code (PNR) and surname in the relevant field.

What is the advantage of checking in online? Learn more

By checking in online, you do not need to wait in line at the counter to check-in at the airport and you can easily choose the seats you prefer as long as they are included in your flight class. If you have no suitcases or only hand luggage, you can go directly to the boarding gate.

Is online check-in available for passengers requiring special services? Learn more

Passengers requiring special services (unattended children, infirm passengers, and passengers with mobility issues) may benefit from in person check-in methods rather than online check-in. You can review our check-in procedures page for check-in alternatives that may be preferential for passengers with specific needs.

Can I check in online for more than one flight? Learn more

For trips that include multiple flights, you can “check-in from start to finish” to flights that are open for check-in. For trips with departures and returns on the same day, you can “round-trip check-in” for both flights.

Can I choose a seat during the online check-in process? Learn more

During the online check-in process, you can view the seats on the seat plan, determine if which ones are available, and make your choice.

If I checked in online, how much time prior to my flight should I arrive at the airport and what should I do when I arrive? Learn more

If you’ve checked in online, when you arrive at the airport, you can check your baggage and obtain your boarding pass at one of the Turkish Airlines counters. All check-in procedures must be completed no later than 60 minutes prior to departure for international flights and 45 minutes for domestic flights. We encourage you to plan your airport arrival in accordance with these regulations as well as the security screenings.

Passengers who pre-print their boarding pass or create a mobile boarding pass can go directly to the boarding gate by passing through the security check if they have no baggage or only hand luggage.

How do I cancel my flight if I do not arrive at the airport on time after online check-in or if I cancel my trip prior to departure? Learn more

Contact our call center or sales offices to make a new reservation and/or cancel your flight.
