    I am a regular traveler and always use the web check-in services provided by the flight. It will be my first time I will be flying with Air Arabia, and I would like to know if they have the Air Arabia web check-in service, I am 99% sure they would as the majority of flights do have it, but I do need to make sure.

    If Air Arabia do have web check-in facility, is it reliable? I have had a few problems in the past with other flights web check-ins.

    Hello, welcome to the forum!


    What is Web Check-In?

    We all know of the traditional check-in counters at the airport, wherein we have to line up, show our passports and get our boarding passes from, two or more hours before the scheduled departure of the flight. Since we are in the modern times, the era of the internet, even this traditional check-in has an online counterpart now. This is known as the Web Check-In, a form of self check-in wherein passengers can check-in online through the airline's website and even print their boarding pass thereafter. With the advent of technologies, you won't even have to print a boarding pass, you can have it ready on your phone or tablet via screenshot. Most airlines nowadays offer this type of facility for passengers, making the process of checking in less tedious and time consuming.

    Air Arabia - An Overview

    We now go to Air Arabia, a low-cost airline established in 2003 in Sharjah, in the United Arab Emirates. Air Arabia is basically a no frills airline operating around the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and Asia, including the different regions in India. While it operates mainly from the Sharjah International Airport, it also has flights from the Ras Al Khaimah International Airport, another UAE airport. Although the airline has very basic air crafts, they are quite comfortable and can provide passengers with their basic amenities. There is also ample leg room for passengers, which is even bigger than other mid-range airlines. What they might be lacking would be in the in-flight entertainments, which is a given since this is just a low-cost airline. Much like other airlines, Air Arabia also has an online website where you can book your flight, make some modifications to your booked flight or even avail of their online check-in service.

    Other Information

    While some say that Web Check-In is simply for those who don't have checked luggage, that simply isn't true. Yes, those with only cabin luggage or carry-on luggage can truly benefit with the service because they can bypass long queues at the bag check-in counters of airports. But even those with luggage to check can save some time with this service. Air Arabia has separate bag check-in counters for those who check-in online using their website. You can simply drop off your luggage at this Baggage Drop-Off Counter and you can proceed directly to your supposed gate.
