Online check-in

A smarter and faster check-in

Check-in online

If your flight is operated by Etihad Airways (not a partner airline), you can check-in online from 24 hours to 2 hours before departure.

With a few simple clicks, avoid the airport check-in queues, choose your preferred seat and print your Boarding Pass.


Print your Boarding Pass
For a faster check-in process, print your Boarding Pass and take it with you to the airport, ready to present at the Bag Drop counter. Without a printed boarding pass, you may experience delays in checking-in.

Forms of Identification

  • Etihad Airways PNR (Booking Reference Number): 6 digit alpha-numeric booking reference located on your Itinerary (example: YIJHDZ)
  • Etihad Guest Number: 12 digit number (example: 100013753546)
Visa and travel documents
Please prepare all your proper documents and be familiar with the visa or entry requirements for the countries in your itinerary. We are not responsible for any boarding delays or denials caused by your failure to do so.

Mobile Boarding Pass

Mobile boarding passes are a convenient option for guests with internet-enabled mobile devices.

To access your mobile boarding pass, simply complete your online check-in at least three hours before departure using a mobile device.

Your pass can also be sent to your email address or stored on Passbook (for iPhone users). We also recommend taking a screenshot of the mobile boarding pass, as the 2D barcode will need to be scanned while you pass through the airport security and boarding gate.

Mobile boarding passes are currently available in the following departure cities:

Abu Dhabi (AUH) Colombo (CMB) Dammam (DMM) Doha (DOH) Dusseldorf (DUS)
Frankfurt (FRA) Istanbul (IST) London (LHR) Manchester (MAN) Minsk (MSQ)
Munich (MUC) Narita (NRT) (ATH) Athens Sao Paulo (GRU) (BRU) Brussels
(MXP) Milan (BEG) Belgrade (CDG) Paris (GVA) Geneva (YYZ) Toronto
