Check-In Information

Online Check-In

Passengers are able to check-in as early as 30 days and up to 12 hours before scheduled departure. However, this will depend on the ticket fare:

Light - check-in 3 days before departure

Classic – check-in 7 days before departure

Premium – check-in 30 days before departure

Online check-in can be completed through Blue Air's website.


Online check-in is available for most flights, however, there are a few exceptions. Online check-in is not available for flights departing from Constanta, Florence, Lisbon, Menorca, Palma de Mallorca, Pescara, Timisoara and Tel Aviv, as well as flights to and from the following airports in Germany: Hamburg, Stuttgart, Cologne-Bonn and Munich.

If online check-in is not available for your flight, you can easily perform your check-in at the airport.

Check-In at the Airport

Passengers who prefer to check-in at the airport can do so by arriving at the check-in desk two hours before scheduled departure.

Baggage Allowance

Carry-On Baggage

All passengers are allowed to bring one piece of carry-on luggage free of charge. This luggage must weigh less than 10kg and measure no more than 55cm x 40cm x 20cm. Passengers can also carry duty free products which have been bought at the airport onto the plane - this will not count towards your carry-on allowance.

Checked Baggage

Checked baggage is not included in the ticket price. If you would like to bring checked baggage, this will need to be added to your booking for an additional fee. Each passenger is able to add a maximum of four pieces of luggage to their booking.

Checked baggage must weigh no more than 23 or 32kg a piece, depending on what you have booked.

Also, checked baggage must not exceed the following measurements: 100cm x 80cm x 30cm.

Baggage fees vary depending on route. The best way to check is at the time of booking, when it will be possible to add checked baggage to your booking. Please note that the airline recommends booking your required bags when you book your flights online, as the fee at the airport will be higher.

Economy Class

Blue Air is a low-cost carrier, meaning the only cabin class available is Economy. However, within the Economy cabin there are three class fares to choose from: Light, Classic, and Premium.

The onboard experience will be very similar, but by choosing an upgraded fare passengers can enjoy a number of added benefits, such as greater flexibility when it comes to changing the date of travel.

Top Tip: You can learn more about fare upgrades and how to choose the right fare for you in our guide to fare families.

Blue Air retire a number of Boeing aircraft within its fleet

Blue Air has plans to retire a number of Boeing aircraft in its fleet by the year 2020 after it will take a delivery of B737 MAX 8s in the second quarter of 2019. Blue Air currently has two B737-300s and six B737-400s that it will retire, however, the airline plan to keep the six Boeing B737-500 aircraft that it currently uses.

General Manager of Blue Air, Gheorghe Racaru stated that last year by the end of this year, they would've retired a total of six planes in the last two years, which will mean they will have a smaller fleet than usual this winter. However, their fleet will grow back to normal size with the order of B737 MAX 8s. The Blue Air GM reiterated that the airline is not expanding its fleet, just replacing the Boeing aircraft that it will retire later this year.
