Check-in - coming early, relaxed flying
Get informed in advance for your advantage
For your safety every single piece of luggage is subject to detailed security controls. For most scheduled flights you should therefore come to the check-in counter at least 45 minutes (for Turkish Airlines flights at least 60 minutes) before departure. For charter flights we recommend check-in 2 hours prior to departure.
Check-in times are scheduled by the airline. Please get informed already in advance when booking or ask our airport information. Please consider possible delays in your planning.
The possibility of checking through baggage on connecting flights depends on your booking and the airline. In case of questions please contact Flughafen Graz Bodenservices +43 (316) 2929 75.
Please always carry your passport with you!
For travels within the borders or Schengen-countries no passport control is done. Random checks can be made however. It is therefore necessary to carry the passport or identification card with you on all flights. For journeys to countries outside the Schengen-area passport control is obligatory.

Early Check-in - a relaxed start into your holidays
Check-in on the night before. To save you waiting time at check-in and carrying heavy luggage on the day of departure, Graz Airport offers you the option of checking in between 7:00 and 9:00 pm on the evening before your flight.
On the day of your travel you can walk right through the security check into the transit area, and your seat on the plane is already reserved.
All you need for early check-in is your ticket and passport.
Not all airlines offer the opportunity for early check-in on the evening before departure. Airberlin and NIKI will charge a fee for this service. Please check when booking or ask the information desk.
Just a short waiting time for you after early check-in
According to Regulation 2320/2002 of the European Parliament and the Council on Common Rules in the Field of Civil Aviation Security, all luggage checked in at Graz Airport is subject to security checks. This rule came into effect on Jan. 01, 2003.
Since suspicious baggage may be opened in the presence of the passenger, we kindly request that you wait in the passenger terminal for approximately twenty minutes after early check-in. If required, you will be called up to assist in the security check.
A comprehensive list of objects that are not allowed in luggage is available at the information desk in the departure hall, at the security check or at www.bmi.gv.at.
