Why Do I Need to Check-in?

Checking-in is standard practice at every airport. It’s done so the airline you are travelling with can confirm that you are ready to start your journey. If you have any luggage with you the airline can also confirm this through your check-in. Luxembourg Airport provides a number of different check-in options depending on your flight details and what airline you have chosen to travel with.

When you’re checking-in at the airport you will need to bring the following documentation with you:
