Online check-in and seat reservation
Online check-in and seat reservation
In light of coronavirus, TUI and TUI fly have taken various measures. We ask you to check in online prior to your flight, if possible. You can do so from 24 hours before your flight. Please note: Online check-in is not possible for the return flight to Belgium due to the fact that your Belgian PLF form must be checked. Please collect your boarding pass at the check-in desk at the airport of your destination. If you don’t have a valid PLF form, you will not receive a boarding pass. In addition, you will risk a € 250 fine.If you have any questions about the measures taken, please consult the webpage listing all coronavirus measures or our FAQ section on the coronavirus.
Would you like to have a say in where you will be seated during the flight or do you want to make sure you will be seated next to your travelling companion? You can then book your favourite type of seat in advance. You can for instance choose a seat with extra legroom or a seat in the front of the cabin. You can also check in online quickly and easily on most of our flights after having selected a seat or in the period between 24 and 6 hours before departure (if you have not reserved a seat).
If you have problems reserving a seat for your TUI fly booking with departure an/or return, we advise you to try again later. We will try to find a solution for this problem as soon as possible
