For a quick and easy process at the airport, we recommend that you check in online. Online check-in can be completed on the Fastjet online check-in page. Passengers must provide their last name and booking code to check in for their flight. You can check in online from 24 hours to 2 hours before your flight departure time.

Airport Check-in

If passengers can't or don't want to check-in online, they can check-in at the airport. Airport check-in can be completed by presenting the relevant travel documents to a check-in agent at the airport of departure.
