Can You Print a Boarding Pass at the Airport if You Already Checked In?

Yes, you can print your boarding pass at the airport even if you have already checked in. Here’s a comprehensive guide to answering your questions about printing boarding passes at the airport after checking in online.

What to Do After Online Check-In

If you’ve completed your online check-in, you can go straight to security if you’re traveling carry-on only. If you’re checking a bag, you’ll still need to stop by the ticketing area at the airport. Look for special “bag drop” lines that bypass longer check-in lines.

Need for a Printed Boarding Pass

Depending on the requirements of airport authorities, you will need to present a mobile boarding pass, a paper boarding pass printed out by you, or a paper boarding pass picked up from the check-in desk.
