You’ll find the link to the British Airways website below, but you may want to read our check-in guide first.

Before you get started make sure you have the following handy;

  • Your flight reference found on your invoice/confirmation - this is not your Thomas Cook booking reference and can be found on the ‘flights’ section of your Thomas Cook invoice labelled ‘airline reference’. If you're having trouble using your airline reference on your airline’s website, please check you’re using the right letters and numbers as the letters ‘I, O and Z’ can look like the numbers ‘1, 0 and 2’. The reference is a random selection of numbers and letters in any order and could also be made up of just letters.
  • Your passport details - The earliest you can check in online is from 24 hours to 1 hour before you’re due to depart. This is the same for most destinations apart from the USA, which closes 2 hours before departure. Don’t forget to check in for your return flight too!

Check in

  • Go to the British Airways website using the link below and you’ll see this check-in screen:

  • Enter your details - your 'Booking reference' is your ‘Airline reference’ (as shown above) and your surname
  • Add your passport details
  • Add any flight extras (special dietary requests and advance passenger information can be added any time before you check in)
  • Print or download your boarding card
