How To Check In Online Kenya Airways

Online check-in is the process in which passengers confirm their presence on a flight via the Internet and typically print their own boarding passes. Depending on the carrier and the specific flight, passengers may also enter details such as meal options and baggage quantities and select their preferred seating.

Online check-in allows you to check-in in advance for your flight using either the airline’s website or mobile app. With online check-in, you no longer need to wait until you are at the airport to check in instead, you do so prior to the day of the flight from the comfort of your home.
