- Select the passengers, baggage and flights you want to check-in. Able amount of baggage depends on your fare type.
- If you have an international flight you'll need to enter the Advanced Passenger Information (APIS). Jetstar is required to provide this information to border authorities.
- Make sure you declare any dangerous goods.
- If you'd like to choose your seat, make a selection from the available seats displayed.
- For Domestic: Download and print your boarding pass as a PDF document, alternatively you can save and email to print off at a later date. Or you can have an SMS Boarding Pass sent to your mobile phone.
For International: Print your web travel documents as these are required to obtain your boarding pass at the airport.
Before you check-in online:
- Please read through all of the detailed information in your itinerary. For international travel, please have your passport information ready, as you will need to enter these details.
- If your booking was made through a travel agent, please ask your agent to provide you with the 'Jetstar PNR'. (Your Booking Reference number, which is six letters and numbers).
