What are the requirements for using Web Check-in?

  • Check-in 1-24 hours before your flight is scheduled to depart.
  • You have an electronic ticket.
  • You are not a special needs passenger (ie. Unaccompanied Minor).

Make sure you leave enough time at the airport to get through security, check your bags etc. Also, it has been reported that some non-U.S. citizens have not been able to check-in online. Because Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air are required to verify international documents and information, non-U.S. citizens and people traveling interntationally should arrive early at the airport. In addition, some airports require that travelers clear customs before departure, which can further add to check-in time.
