Airport Check-In

The time on your ticket is local. We recommend arriving at the airport 2 hrs before departure to have plenty of time to go through the control (customs, border and, if needed, sanitary, quarantine, immigration, veterinary and phytosanitary).

For Belavia flights check-in starts 2 hrs and ends 40 min prior to departure.

The airline is not responsible for the passengers who are late for check-in or boarding. The company doesn’t delay departures for waiting such passengers in order to adhere the schedule.

Check-in counters for business class and economy class passengers have following designations: “Business Class” and “Economy Class”.

Frequent flying passengers of elite Belavia Leader levels are serviced on “Business Class” check-in counter. Business class and elite Belavia Leader levels’ passengers have priority during check-in when it takes place at one counter with economy class passengers.

In some airports it could be a restriction in using business lounge for business class and elite Belavia Leader levels’ passengers.
