Korean Air is now offering travellers a more convenient start to their journey with web check-in available through its global website. From seat assignment to getting a boarding pass, the entire check-in process has gone online.Web Check-In service is available from 4 hours to 24 hours before the scheduled departure time of the flight. Any member of koreanair.com holding valid international flight e-tickets and traveling to visa-not-required destinations is eligible to use web check-in service.
This service is expected to reduce queuing time at the airport and allow more passengers to select the seat of their preference.
The procedure is simple. First passengers log in to the Korean Air website and click for the Web Check-In Service. Then select the flight and passenger name, enter passport details, select the seat, and print out the boarding pass. Once at the airport, the passenger just needs to validate the printed boarding pass at the dedicated counters, where check-in baggage is also accepted, and head straight for the boarding gate.
Passengers traveling on codeshare flights operated by other airlines, holding a group ticket, or those who have requested services requiring additional confirmation at the airport (e.g. unaccompanied minors, traveling with pets, wheelchair required passengers, upgrading, etc) are not eligible to use web check-in.
