Online Check-In

Online Check-in for International Flights

Online check-in allows those who have reserved seats and completed the required information to check into their flight from 24 hours prior to departure.

During this process, you can confirm or change seats and get a boarding pass. Remember, you can reserve your seat and enter required information any time after you’ve made a flight reservation.

  • This service may be unavailable for some passengers traveling with infants, or on certain routes. If you have multiple connecting flights, check-in goes in the order of your flights.

Important note: Automatic check-in is no longer available; you must check yourself in.

Online Check-in Process

You will receive a check-in notification email 24 hours prior to your flight’s departure time. Passengers flying to/from the USA must also register their immigration information.

  • Passengers who have already made a seat reservation can also change their seat at this step. Seat requests are fulfilled based on availability.
  • For international itineraries that involve a connection from a Japan domestic flight, online check-in is only available 24 hours prior to departure of the international flight—even in cases where a check-in reminder email is received 24 hours prior to the domestic flight.
  • When traveling on multiple flights, check-in must be performed in same order as the flights.

Search for your reservation information, then enter your passport or email address to reserve your seat on the reservation details screen.
