How do I check in online with Ryanair?

When you book a flight with Ryanair, you will be allocated an email address to check in online with. This will either be your own email address, or a unique email address which we have generated for you. This is sent to you upon receiving full payment of your booking, and will be shown on your receipt.

Under the payment details on your receipt, you will see the following:



1. How to access your Ryanair booking to check in
To log in to your booking on the Ryan Air website, click here. In the 'No account yet?' section, enter your reservation number and the email address which we have allocated to you for your booking: Then click the ‘Go’ button.

2. Advance passenger information and online check in
All customers flying with Ryanair must check in online and print their boarding passes in order to travel and avoid incurring additional airport charges of £70 per person. The boarding passes must be presented at the check in desk at the airport along with a valid travel document accepted by Ryanair (for the vast majority of passengers this would be a passport).

Online check in will open 30 days before each scheduled flight departure for customers who purchase an allocated seat. Customers who do not wish to preselect and purchase an allocated seat will only be able to check in from 4 days before the flight.

UPDATE: From Wednesday, 13th June 2018, online check-in (for those customers who don’t choose reserved seats) will be available from 48 hours to 2 hours pre-departure for all flights.

It’s every customer’s responsibility to check-in on time.

Check-in opening times vary depending on your type of booking.

  • Customers who purchase seats can check-in between 60 days and up to 2 hours before their scheduled flight departure time.
  • Customers who don’t purchase seats can check-in between 4 days and up to 2 hours before their scheduled flight departure time.
  • Flexi Plus customers can check-in at the airport free of charge.
