Why fly with British Airways?

How to Check-in

There are three main ways to check-in. Travellers can do an online check-in 24 hours before the flight. Do remember to print your own boarding pass prior to departure. If you lose or forget your boarding pass, you can print it again at the check-in kiosk at the airport.

All you need is your booking reference or a form of identification. If you require help, you can check-in at the check-in desk at the airport.

Baggage Fees and Allowances

British Airways offers one of the most generous free hand baggage allowances of any airline. The maximum weight per hand baggage is up to 23kg. You must be able to fit your bags into the baggage gauge at check-in. For those times when hand baggage is not enough, you can carry up to 10 bags per adult. There's definitely an art to packing but even the most talented people sometimes end up with more gear than they can fit in their allowance. Do check their website to look at the different extra bag charges for travellers of different nationalities. It is important to note that bags over 32kg cannot be checked in and must be shipped separately as freight or cargo. Prohibited items include corrosives, aerosols, explosives, inflammable liquids and solids, sharp instruments, firearms and compressed gases.


Travellers would be able to reserve their seats for free during check-in, although preferred seats may be limited. Travellers can also choose their seats in advance for more choices. It is easy for travellers to choose the seats online either at the time of booking for your flight or afterwards using their Manage My Booking. You may need to pay extra charges depending on whether you need extra legroom or if you intend on sitting together as a group. There are four classes of service on the flight: First Class, Business Class, Premium Economy Class and Economy class.
