United Nigeria Airlines offer its passengers the choice to check in either at the airport or online, however, if customers fail to check in before the deadline, United Nigeria may not let you board.

Online Check-in

Online check-in is available through the airline's website, and opens 24 hours prior to the flight departure time. Online check-in will close 1 hour before flight departure.

You're recommended to check-in online before your flight as it'd save you time from queuing at the airport. And you might obtain your boarding pass once online check-in is completed, which means you may directly report to airport security if you have no luggage to check-in.

If you fail to check-in before the check-in deadline, United Nigeria Airlines has the right to refuse you to board. Therefore, please report to the airline check-in counters as soon as you arrive at the airport. The check-in area will be indicated on the airport departure information board.
