SpiceJet Airport Check In


Passengers can check in at the airport counters of SpiceJet. This is the standard way in which check-in happens. Though people use web check in to avoid long queues and hassles, there is still a need to show up at airport counters for verification of documents in some situations.
Spicejet airport check-in for domestic flights begins 2 hours before and closes 45 minutes before scheduled departure. Boarding gate closes 20 minutes before scheduled departure.
Valid ID proofs:
1. Driving License
2. Aadhar card
3. Voter ID card
4. Pan Card
5. Valid Birth certificate for infants
6. Photo ID card from government/reputed private organizations
7. School ID cards of children or any other photo ID
If you are boarding connecting flights of Spicejet, you are issued 2 boarding passes right at the origin airport. Check in for final destination allowed till 45 minutes before departure of flight.
Spicejet airport check in for international flights begins 3 hours before and closes 75 minutes before scheduled departure of flights. Boarding gate closes 25 minutes before scheduled departure. For Kabul bound flights, this time limit is 45 minutes.
In case of international connecting flights, the boarding pass for the final destination will be issued at the last departing station. It is not given at the time of check in at the airport of origin.
Valid Id Proofs: Only Passport is considered as a valid ID proof. It must have a validity of 6 months.
There is some relaxation for Nepal as, besides Passport, Voter ID card is also considered a valid ID proof. DL and PAN Card is not considered valid proof.
