As with other premium airlines, Qatar Airways offers free check-in. At the airport, at a self-service kiosk or online.
Check-in at the airport
Check-in at the airport is free and counters usually open 3 hours before your scheduled departure. Check-in closes 1 hour before departure.
Several counters are normally open at the airport, but queues will still form due to the large capacity of the aircraft. For faster check-in, it is better to choose one of the following options.
At selected airports you will find kiosks where you can check in yourself after entering your booking number and your travel document. You can also select your seat on the aircraft free of charge during check-in.
Self-check-in kiosks can be found at the following airports:
- Europe: Copenhagen CPH, Paris CDG, Frankfurt FRA, Geneva GVA and London LHR.
- Asia Pacific: Perth PER, Bangkok BKK, Singapore SIN, Jakarta CGK and Chennai MAA
