Check-in options

There are three options for Bamboo flight check-in: online check-in, kiosk check-in, and check-in at the airport.

Online check-in

Doing online check-in will help you save time on the long airport check-in lines, offering a smoother and faster travel experience.

For Bamboo flights, web check-in opens from 24 hours to 1 hour prior to departure time.

However, it’s only available for domestic flights departing from Noi Bai (HAN), Da Nang (DAD), Tan Son Nhat (SGN), and Nha Trang (CXR) airports.

Online check-in is not available for passengers who:

  • Request special services (except for special meals).
  • Travel with infants under 02 years old or pregnant passengers.
  • More than 9 passengers on one booking.

How to check-in Bamboo flights online

  • Access the web check-in URL.
  • Input your Booking number or E-ticket number and your name.
  • Select passenger and flight
  • Select “Agree” and “Next” after reading the regulations
  • Choose any other services
  • After completion with successful notice, you can print or receive your boarding pass via email.

At the airport, you can show your boarding pass and required documents at the check-in counter to deposit your luggage.

If you do not bring checked baggage, you can use kiosks check-in to print your boarding pass and go to the security door.

Kiosks check-in

If you don’t have any checked baggage, you can also use kiosks check-in at the airport. The process is quite similar to web check-in.

If you already did Web check-in or Mobile check-in, you can print your print boarding pass. You’ll need to fill in your Reservation code to see the available flights. You can then choose the flight for re-printing your boarding pass.
