Check in for your flight

Here’s where you can find all the ways to check in conveniently for your Singapore Airlines flight. If the first flight in your itinerary is operated by a different airline, do check in with the partner airline instead.

For some routes, you may not be able to check in online, or generate your boarding passes after completing online check-in, due to regulatory requirements. You will have to proceed to the airport check-in counter to complete the check-in, or to verify the required documents before being issued with your boarding passes.
