British Airways baggage

If you have completed your British Airways flight check-in and are travelling with hand luggage only, you can proceed directly to security at the airport. However, if you still have checked baggage, you will have to check it in at bag-drop counters or normal counters at the airport.

Remember, if you haven’t already paid for extra baggage online, you can do so at a counter at the airport.

Increase the amount of baggage

If you would like to increase your baggage, you have the option of booking and paying for this online via ‘Manage booking’ . Please complete this step before checking in for your BA flight. Save money by doing this step online rather than at the airport.

Important information for BA check-in

With one check-in process, you can check in up to nine people online under the same booking. For larger groups, you will need to check in at a self-service check-in kiosk at the airport.

Many countries require additional information from passengers. If you don’t see this step during online check-in, don’t worry. Either the required details are already included in the booking, or you are travelling to or from a country that does not require additional passenger information.
