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 your airline directy.

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 from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm on the evening before your flight with Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa and SWISS (earliest 23 hours before scheduled departure).

All you need for early check-in is your ticket and passport.

Since suspicious baggage may be opened in the presence of the passenger, we kindly request that you wait in the passenger terminal for approximately 20 minutes after early check-in. If required, you will be called up to assist in the security check.

Everything prepared for your journey?
