Automated check-in for Lufthansa flights in Germany and Europe


Even more convenient for LH iD profile users and Miles & More members

LH iD profile users & Miles & More members

  • As a Lufthansa iD profile user and Miles & More customer, you can now enjoy an even more relaxed start to your journey. Automated check-in is already enabled for you on flights in the Schengen Area*, and for flights which have been booked up to 24 hours before departure, you will automatically receive your boarding pass 23 hours before departure on the email address or mobile phone number entered in your profile.
  • Choose in your Lufthansa iD and Miles & More profile whether you wish to receive your mobile boarding pass as a text or in an email. To receive your mobile boarding pass by text, you must have saved both your mobile phone number and your email address (so we can send you your passenger receipt) in your profile.**
  • All self services continue to be available: seat change, home-printed bag tag, eJournals and check-in cancellation.
  • You can disable the automated check-in option in your customer profile at any time.
  • Automated check-in cannot be used for flights which do not take place completely in the Schengen Area. In these instances, you will receive a separate check-in invitation as usual.

Register via the link in your booking confirmation – every time you book a flight

  • If you are not a Lufthansa iD profile user or Miles & More member, you can also register for automated check-in via the link in your booking confirmation.
  • In this case, the service will only apply to the booked flight and only to a confirmed booking.
  • You will receive your boarding pass – depending on your choice – by email or text** to the email address or mobile phone number you provide.

If, after automated check-in, you wish to change your seat or cancel your check-in, you can do so via the link in your mobile boarding pass. You can rebook in the Lufthansa app or on under ‘My Bookings’, provided that your ticket’s fare conditions permit rebooking.
