To have your mobile boarding pass sent as an SMS, both your mobile phone number and your e-mail address (so we can send you your passenger receipt) must be entered in your profile.**

If you do not wish to use the automated Check-in service, you can just deactivate this service via your Miles & More profile at least 24 hours before departure. You can reactivate this service in your profile at any time.


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

  • If you do not want to register for automated Check-in via your Miles & More profile or if you are not a Miles & More member, you can also register for this service via the link in your booking confirmation.
  • Using the automated Check-in service is only valid for the flight you have booked and only if it is a confirmed booking.
  • Lufthansa automated Check-in will take place 23 hours before departure, and your boarding pass will be sent either as an e-mail or SMS** to the e-mail address or mobile phone number that you have provided to us.

Please note that rebookings after automated check-in 23 hours before departure are only possible on under ‘Check-in’ via the option ‘Cancel check-in’ or through ‘My Bookings’. This is only possible if your fare type on your ticket permits changes to be made.


*With a few exceptions.
**Registration and sending SMS are both free of charge. Any additional charges from your mobile network provider (e.g. for receiving SMS abroad or for sending SMS to a foreign mobile number) must be paid by you.
