The Night Before

If you have booked a very early flight, some airlines offer you a convenient service: the possibility of checking in and reserving a seat the evening before. This gains you enough time to enjoy breakfast and browse around a Duty Free & Travel Value Shop.

Don't forget to bring your ticket, ID card or passport, and (if required) a visa. Please keep in mind that (in most cases) all passengers must be physically present in order to check in.
Some airlines may charge a service flat rate for checking you in the night before your flight. Please ask your airline if and how much they charge for this service.
