Automated check-in

All you have to do is board

Choose automated check-in when you book your flight at swiss.com We will automatically send you your boarding pass by email to print out or as a mobile boarding pass to your smartphone.

How it works

Are you travelling with hand baggage only and want to save time at the airport? Then opt for automated check-in. You can benefit from this option if you sign up via "Manage booking" at swiss.com, no later than 24 hours before departure and automated check-in is offered for your destination. You can book your chosen seat free of charge or for a fee, depending on the route and your flight class, when you make your online booking.

If you subsequently want to edit your registration for automated check-in or your boarding pass option, you can do this with Manage booking.

If you have not received a boarding pass or a notification by 20 hours before your departure, you will not be able to use automated check-in. However, you will be able to choose from all the other check-in options, as usual.

Additional passenger information

Some countries require additional passenger information before people may enter them. Please enter this information at swiss.com/api up to 72 hours before your departure. If the information is incomplete or not available, we will notify you by email or SMS around 20 hours before departure. In this event, please use one of the other check-in options.
