Check-in for international flights is carried out on the 3rd level of the Terminal D (1 – 60 check-in counters).
Check-in for domestic flights is carried out on the 2nd level of the Terminal D (62-76 check-in counters).
Check-in duration is set by the airline. Usually check-in starts 2 hours and closes 40 minutes prior to the scheduled departure.
Early check-in is highly recommended. Your booking is subject to cancellation if you fail to arrive on time and complete the check-in process by the check-in deadline. If you do not have the required travel documents, a carrier can refuse carriage and cancel your booking not to delay the flight.
To check-in a passenger needs to present a ticket and an ID. Citizens of Ukraine should present a passport of the citizen of Ukraine, an international passport of the citizen of Ukraine, a Child`s Travel Document, a Ukrainian diplomatic passport, a Ukrainian service passport, a Seafarer`s identity card or a crew member ID card. Foreign nationals and apatrides staying in Ukraine should present a passport, a temporary or a permanent residence permit.
Leaving for the airport make sure you don`t forget your ticket and ID as well as Child`s Travel Document(s) in case you are traveling with a child/children.
As soon as the check-in is completed a passenger receives a boarding pass with his/her name, carrier, flight number, date, boarding time, gate and seat (if available) indicated.
Save time queuing at the airport and check in from home with your carrier`s web check-in service. Visit your carrier`s website, fill in your name and e-ticket/booking number, print out your boarding pass and present it to the boarding pass control at the airport. The service`s availability should be checked with the carrier.
