Checking-in forms part of your basic requirements as a passenger at any airport and Kotoka is no different in this regard. You're required to check-in to gain admittance to your flight. You'll normally obtain a boarding pass and have your baggage also checked-in by your airline.
A boarding pass is a document provided by an airline during the check-in process. The boarding pass gives a passenger permission to board the plane for a specific flight. On the boarding pass, you should see the Passenger Identification Number, Flight Number, Ticket Number, Airplane Code, and Date and Time scheduled for departure.
Check all the requirements before you set off on your journey
At the counter
You can check-in at the counter desks designated to your airline. You can find which desk from information screens in the Arrival halls. A representative of your airline will normally issue you with a boarding pass.
You can choose to check-in at an e-Kiosk (green coloured floor standing screens), if your airline is part of the e-checkin programme at Kotoka (Check with your airline). The self-service kiosks are located at various points around the Departure halls. You will normally be printed a boarding pass and will then be required to hand in your baggage at your airline's counter where a representative will process and tag it to complete the check-in process.
You can also choose to check-in online, if your airline allows you to on their website. You will normally be able to do this up to 24 hours before your departure time.
