What Are 'E-Tickets' And Why Should I Use Them?

If you receive a paper ticket, which is a cardboard ticket/coupon in a wallet, you must present this at the airport check-in counter or you will be unable to board your flight.

Does My Flight Baggage Allowance Include Hand Luggage?
No, you should always check the exact hand luggage allowance with your airline prior to packing.

Most airlines have a hand baggage measurement gauge at check-in.

If you have a connecting flight via a third country, you may also require a transit visa. For further information, please contact the consulate of the country you are travelling through. For the most up to date information on visas, passports, health and travel advice worldwide, please click here.

Boarding usually begins 45 minutes prior to departure.
