Check in

Online/mobile check in

If you have checked in online or on your smartphone then you can precede directly to the Security check point - unless you have any luggage to check in. This luggage must be given to the staff at the Check-in area or placed on our automatic baggage drop.

Check in at a machine or with personal assistance

At all departures you have the opportunity to check in by yourself. Are you flying with SAS - use one of the light blue machines to check in. For all other flights - use one of the dark blue machines. Do you have any luggage to check in, then turn your luggage in at the Check-in counters to one of the employees.

Check in at the desk

If you want help with your check in, then go towards the check in desk for your departure. Then our staff will kindly help you check in. 

There are more ways to check in before departure. Most airlines offers online check in on their websites.


Fast through Security

There may be queues at the Security area. To get effectively through Security, it is a good idea to be prepared for your turn. You will need 2-3 trays for your belongings. The trays are located when you approach the tables at the Security area.

Belongings in the trays

Please take off your coat or jacket and put it in one of the trays.

The same applies to belts, watches, mobiles and other loose belongings you carry on you – especially metallic objects.

Please also take computers and/or tablets out of the bag and place them in a tray.

Toiletries must be stored in a transparent bag which can be closed. Please put these in to one of the trays too. 

E-cigarettes and lighters must at all times be in your hand luggage when you are traveling through an airport. These items must also be placed in a tray through security.

Right after you go through security, you will be able to check our info screens where you can see, which gate that belongs to your departure. On the info screens you will find information about gates and departure times.
