      If possible, please check in 24 hours prior to departure online or with the Flair Airlines app or online. There is a $25 check-in fee for checking in at the airport, so we encourage you to check-in before arriving at the airport - and to save yourself some time!

      Bag drop-off
      The bag drop closes 60 minutes before departure on all intra-Canada flights, and 75 minutes before departure on all flights to/from the U.S. and Mexico. Once the bag drop has been closed, you cannot check your bags. Please keep in mind that overweight baggage may take additional time to check.
