Queue for less time and set off feeling more relaxed
Passengers with an Economy Flex or Preferred Seat booking (Web Check-in required) on short and medium-haul flights are entitled to participate in Priority Boarding and will be invited to board first. Please pay attention: the staff at the gate will announce Priority Boarding. You will automatically be assigned to Group Boarding if you do not Pre-Board.
Once you have boarded the aircraft go straight to your seat. The seat number is also shown on your boarding pass. You can stow your hand baggage under the seat in front of you or in the overhead lockers.
Please also note our current Regulations for hand baggage ». Since the storage space for hand baggage on board is limited, you may be asked to check in your hand baggage if the aircraft is filled to capacity. We recommend that you check in any baggage that you do not need on board at the Check-in or Baggage Drop-off desk.
