Check in procedures
Please ensure that you have plenty of time to complete check-in and necessary security, immigration and/or customs formalities.
Hours of operation for China Airlines check-in counters and the time required for pre-boarding procedures vary from airport to airport. In general, we recommend that you check in 2 hours before the scheduled departure time, but you may need 3 hours or even more for some busy airports with strict procedures such as those in the U.S.
For passengers who have special needs or considerations, e.g. unaccompanied minors, disabled, deaf, blind, travelling with blocked seat cabin baggage, wheelchair users and so on., we recommend that they check in at least 2 hours before scheduled departure time to allow us enough time to handle their needs.
