Following the industry trend for e-ticketing and on-line check-in Korean Air is offering a web based check-in service.
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 destinations for which a visa is not required is eligible to use the web check-in service.
This service is expected to reduce airport queuing time and allow more passengers to select the seat of their preference.
Once at the airport, the passenger just needs to validate this home printed boarding pass at the dedicated counters, where check-in baggage is also accepted, and head directly to the boarding gate.
Passengers traveling on code-share flights operated by other airlines, holding a group ticket, or those who have requested services requiring additional confirmation at the airport are not eligible to use web check-in.
