How can we help you ?

How early do I need to check-in for my flight?

How early you need to check-in varies by airline, departure airport and destination. Generally, you should plan to arrive at the airport as least:

  • 1.5 - 2 hours for Domestic flights
  • 2 - 3 hours for International flights (*)

Remember that airport security is extremely thorough in many countries and this can cause delays so it is therefore very important to allow sufficient time to check-in and clear security and passport control formalities. Allow more time when there are longer check-in and security lines, such as:

  • peak travel times (Sunday and Friday afternoons, and Monday mornings)
  • busy times (seasonal holidays and events)
  • during significant weather delays and cancellations

(*Royal Jordanian asked its passengers traveling via Queen Alia International Airport to be present at the airport three hours prior to their flight schedule, starting January 5, 2016
