Online check-in is fast and simple. Passengers may check-in for their flight starting 24 hours before departure. Boarding passes may be printed or sent to a personal mobile device where they can be saved. Online check-in is available from the U.S. and most international destinations. For online check-in, the first flight of the itinerary must be on a United operated flight and the booking must contain 4 or less segments with less than 9 people and you must have scanned your passport previously with United.
Airport kiosks are available in U.S. airports and many international airports. Kiosks allow passengers to print boarding passes, change seats and declare baggage amounts. Once checked in, simply proceed to the bag drop off counter where passports and documentation are checked.
Airport check-in counters are open for specified time periods, usually from 3 to 4 hours before flight departure. Counters at London Heathrow and major U.S. airports are open throughout the day.
United Airlines have introduced a drop-and-go service that allows you to check your bags in faster. Find out more.
