Check in Procedures

You can use web check in, a mobile device or an airport kiosk to check in up to 24 hours before your flight, or check in up to three hours before your flight with an agent at Guest assistance.

Boarding passes will be issued to qualified guests once check in has been completed through online check in, a kiosk at the airport or at Guest assistance. Guests must have their boarding passes (printed or electronic), baggage tags and baggage dropped off before our cut-off times.

You'll need your:

  • reservation code or WestJet ID;
  • passport, if you are travelling to the U.S. or internationally; and
  • hotel name, destination address, cruise or transit airline if you are travelling to the U.S.

Give yourself plenty of time to get to the airport, complete check in, drop off your baggage, and go through security and customs (if applicable). Unfortunately, guests who do not meet our minimum cut-off times (below) for check-in or baggage drop will be denied travel and/or baggage acceptance, with no exception.

Check-in and baggage cut-off times

The cut-off times shown below may not represent the amount of time required to drop off baggage and to go through security. We recommend that you arrive at the airport at least 90 minutes before a domestic flight and at least 120 minutes before an international flight.

You should arrive at the boarding gate at least 40 minutes before flight departure - and here's why. If you arrive less than 10 minutes before departure you will be denied boarding. WestJet is not responsible for missed flights, transfers, or any portion of onward travel due to late arrival at the gate.
