Web check-in and verification
Web check-in is a free check-in service provided by Tigerair available between 72 hours and 1 hour prior to the scheduled departure time. If using a desktop computer or tablet for web check-in, a passenger will be required to print out their boarding pass and bring it to the airport on the day of travel.
If using web check-in on a mobile device, a passenger can also view and save their mobile boarding pass directly to their phone and simply show it when boarding the flight at the airport. Alternatively, the facility of web check-in on desktop or tablet is also available. Passengers can email the boarding pass to themselves.
If a passenger does not have access to web check-in prior to their flight, they can visit the airport kiosk or approach one of the airport agents located in the check-in terminal of the departure airport. This service strictly closes 45 minutes prior to departure.
If web check-in (checked-in online) has been completed and baggage has been checked, the passenger will need to visit the bag drop area before boarding. Domestic bag drop closes 45 minutes prior to scheduled departure.
If a passenger has completed web check-in (checked-in online) and only has carry-on baggage, he/she can proceed straight to the gate, 30 minutes prior to departure for domestic travel.
