Why Fly With Brussels Airlines

How to Check-in

Brussels Airlines offers several ways to complete your check-in. Available between 24 hours and 60 minutes before your departure, you can check-in online, on your laptop, computer or mobile device.

You can also choose the automated check-in service, and Brussels Airlines will do the work for you. 24 hours before your departure you will receive your boarding pass as a printable PDF to you e-mail or as a link via SMS, whichever way you like. You can always do it the old school way by visiting the check-in counters at the airport.
