SpiceJet Check-In and Boarding

Spicejet Online Check In

The facility of Spicejet web check in allows passengers to select seats and get the boarding passes through email or sms, which can then be printed and taken to the airport. At the airport, there is no need to queue up in the line if you are carrying only hand baggage and can proceed directly for security clearance.

However, when you are carrying checkin baggage and you web check in, you will have to first go to the airport counter without standing in the line and get the bags tagged or stamped, and then proceed for securty clearance. This is applicable for domestic flights. In case of international flights, passengers are required to show up at the airport counter for verification of documents and again get the boarding passes. 

spicejet web check in

Spicejet online check in facility is available from all airports across the country, except from Jammu and Kashmir airports. It is also not available on Ex-international destination flights where passengers board from an international airport. 

Spicejet Web Check In Cut-off Time

Web check in opens 48 hours before and closes 2 hours before scheduled departure of flights in case of domestic flights. For corporate users, the benefit is that web check-in opens right from the time of ticket booking and it remains open till 2 hrs before departure of flight.  For international flights, it opens 48 hours and closes 3 hours before scheduled departure of flights. 

Who are not allowed to Web Check in?

  • Passengers with infants, pregnant women, requiring wheelchair, or requiring any other special assistance 
  • Passengers travelling in groups of more than 9 people
  • Unaccompanied minors

SpiceJet Airport Check-in

Domestic Flights 

All passengers are required to show their valid ID proofs at the time of check-in. This provision is also applicable to children and infants. There is also a requirement of carrying Passport and valid travel documents (including PIO card) for the foreigners/ NRIs or Non-Indian Nationals if they are traveling to Port Blair.

Check-In starts 2 hours prior to scheduled departure of flight. Check-in closes 45 minutes before the departure time. Boarding gate closes 20 minutes before flight departure.

It is mandatory to carry itinerary printouts to airport for check-in. If you do not  have one, you can get the printout from the airport on paying a fee of Rs 100.

Connecting flights (domestic)

In the domestic sector, Spicejet will be issuing 2 boarding passes to a passenger. Check in is allowed till 45 minutes prior to scheduled departure for final destination from the transit point. If passenger fails to show up for boarding 20 minutes prior to departure at point of transit, then it will be treated as a ‘Gate No Show’ case and his or her baggage would be offloaded and handed over to him or her or to the concerned airport authority.

International Flights

Passengers shall report at least 3 hours prior to scheduled departure. Check-in would close 1 hour prior to scheduled departure (75 minutes for Dubai and Kabul). Boarding gate would close 25 minutes before scheduled departure (from Kabul, this period is 45 minutes). There will not be any refunds if the provisions of this check-in are not met by passengers.

Connecting Flights (international)

For international connecting flight, check in starts 4 hours and ends 60 minutes prior to departure time. Boarding cards are issued only up to the point of transit. In cases where passengers are coming from international flights and take connecting flights to domestic destinations, they are not allowed to carry more than 100 ml of liquid in their hand/cabin baggage. Duty free liquor is also not allowed as cabin baggage.

Spicejet Boarding Pass

Spicejet is India’s low cost carrier. When you book Spicejet tickets and check-in using the web, mobile app or at the airport, you are issued a boarding pass at the end of the check-in process. You shall refer to the check-in process of the Spicejet airline for more details. 

When is the boarding pass issued and how to get it?

The boarding pass will be issued at the end of the check-in process. For those who have completed the web check in, the pass will be available for download online. For those who checked in at the airport, it will be issued at the airport. 

Is the boarding pass required to be printed?

Yes, it is important to print the boarding pass. 

How do I get the boarding pass for connecting domestic flights?

If you are flying on connections of Spicejet in the domestic sector, you will be given two boarding passes right at the origin station.

How do I get the boarding pass for the connecting international flight?

The boarding pass for the international leg of the travel is issued at the last departing station. 

What if the boarding pass is lost?

If the pass is lost, then you can get another one one more time. If you have checked in online, then click the same link to find that it shows already checked-in status and the option to print the boarding pass one more time.

For how long shall the pass be retained?

The boarding pass shall be retained till the time travel is completed. 

Though the airline requires you to retain it till the time you exit the terminal, in instances where connecting flights are to be taken, you might be asked to show the boarding pass of the previous flight. 

Sometimes, your company or organization might also require it as a proof of travel, so we recommend you retain it for the required duration of time.

I have booked tickets for me and my family through make my trip and received e-ticktes. Now when I am doing web checkin all the seats are being charged like Rs. 300 or Rs. 150. Could you tell me why is it so? Other airlines don't charge anything during web check-in.

You must be choosing the seats which carry the charge. LCC Airlines, such as Indigo and Spicejet, do have preferential charges for certain seats, say window or aisle seats, or seats in a particular row which is more comfortable to sit, etc.

For international flights you need to report at least 90 minutes before flight time at the check in counter at airport.

Does spicejet charge any fees for preferred seat selection, for example window seat, if we Web check in? If I Web check in the printout of online boarding pass is sufficient to board airplane or do I have to get boarding pass at spicejet Airport counter? I have a child of two and a half years of age. Can I use his birth certificate as ID proof?

Admin Reply :

Yes it allows preferential seat selection by paying additional fee at the time of online check in. After completing the check in process, you will be prompted to have the print out of the boarding pass or send it to your email ID/phone. Once you do it, there is no need for having the boarding pass again at the airport. This is for domestic flights only. For the international flights, there is a need to get the boarding pass at the airport in exchange for the confirmation slip. 

Generally, airlines accept birth certificate of child as valid ID till 3 years of age. So, there shall not be any problem.

I have a domestic leg before an international flight with 3 hours of layover in between. Entire itinerary is on single PNR with Spicejet. How early to report for the domestic leg checkin? Will I have to re check at international leg again? Can I use web checkin for both? My luggage will be collected at end of journey or at layover?

Admin Reply :

For domestic flights, airport check in begins 2 hrs before schedule departure of flights. Domestic flights web check in begins at least 48 hours before scheduled departure. 

You can use web check in for both but will be required to be present at the airport for document validation for international flights. Also, if you are carrying check in baggage, then again you are required to be present at the drop-box counter of airline at the airport. 

For international flights, if you have done web check in, then you are required to be present at the airport at least 1.5 hrs before departure of flighinstaed of the usual 3 hours.

Is it necessary to get the online boarding pass stamped at the time of check-in or we can directly go to security check as we do not have check-in baggage ?

Admin Reply :

If travelling on domestic sector, you can directly proceed to security check. If you are travelling on international sector, then you will again be issued a boarding pass at the airport even after checking in online. This is done to check the travel documents before passengers boards the place for international travel.
