Check-in

Getting excited about your next trip? So are we!

Check-in is available 24 hours prior to departure for all destinations.

To begin the check-in process enter your last name and 6-digit booking number.

Online check-in is designed to work on desktop computers as well as smart phones and other mobile devices. You can also check in via the Icelandair mobile app.

Note that domestic flights and flights to Greenland may need to close online check-in for certain flights if disturbances due to weather conditions are imminent. 

Get your boarding pass in Apple Wallet

When you check in online you can choose how to receive your boarding pass.

You can access your Icelandair boarding pass with Apple Wallet, or store it to be scanned at the gate on the day of your flight – exactly like you would a paper boarding pass.

Check in at airport desk

Make sure you have all the required documentation at hand before checking in. 

We recommend you have your 6-character booking number, as well as your passport for international flights or a form of ID for domestic flights.

Domestic flights: Passengers should arrive at least 45 minutes before departure.

Greenland flights: Passengers should arrive at least 90 minutes before departure. 

International flights: Departing from Keflavík airport, check-in is at least 2 hours before departure. 

Evening check-in and baggage drop-off for your early flight from Keflavík Airport

Beat the morning queues for your flight from Keflavík Airport with early check-in and baggage drop-off. If your accommodation is close to the Kelfavík airport, you can check in and drop off your bags the night before your flight. This way, you can proceed straight to security in the morning, having already checked in your bags and received your boarding pass.

Evening check-in at Keflavík Airport is available from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM throughout the summer of 2024.

All Icelandair passengers, except those traveling to Canada, can make use of early check-in for flights departing the next day. Please note that anyone checking in luggage must be present at check-in; one person cannot check in bags for others who are not present. Remember to bring your passport to the airport.

Baggage check-in

If you have finished online check-in and have no baggage to check in (other than the allowed carry-on baggage), then you are ready to go to the gate.

If you have baggage to check in, go to the check-in desk and show your boarding pass. 

Note: At Keflavík, Billund and Copenhagen airports there are self-service check-in stations where you can drop off your baggage. Make sure you've checked in at a self-service kiosk to print out your bag tags.
