Check-in information

Taking a flight soon? Then it’s time to check in! Check in online quickly and easily for numerous routes using My Transavia. If preferred, you can also check in at the airport at one of the check-in desks.

Online check-in

It is fast, easy and free to check in online at Transavia. Our online check-in service is open 30 hours before departure to 4 hours before the departure of your flight. You can check in online on your phone, tablet or computer. If you are not sure whether your luggage is too heavy, you can always book (extra) hold luggage when checking in. Keep in mind that the fee for hold luggage is more expensive at the airport.

Airport check-in

Naturally, you can always check in free of charge at one of the check-in desks. There are also check-in machines at some airports. You will need your ticket and passport or national identity card for both.

Advance Passenger Information (API)

For a number of routes, Transavia is required to provide information from your travel document to the authorities in your destination and/or departure country. The information we require from you is called API (Advance Passenger Information). The reason this information is passed on is to reduce illegal immigration through better border control. You can provide us with this information before you check in, either at the airport or online in My Transavia.

We require the following information from you:

  • Your full name
  • Your gender
  • Your date of birth
  • The type of travel document (passport or identity card)
  • The number of your travel document
  • The country where your travel document was issued
  • The expiry date of your travel document
  • Your nationality

Dropping off luggage at the airport

Did you check in online and you are travelling with hold luggage or special luggage? You can drop it off at the 'baggage drop-off' counters. If there is no drop-off counter, you can check in your bags at the check-in desk.
