Checked, Confirmed, Ready To Go

Last updated: July 17, 2013

Recent developments and “innovations” on Indonesian airlines’ websites in flight reconfirmation and online check-in.

One of the more frequently asked questions Mau Ke Mana receives is “Do I need to reconfirm my flight?”

Five years ago when almost all tickets were paper tickets, it was definitely a good idea. These days, you can do it yourself for most airlines by going to the airline’s website.

In addition, three airlines – Garuda Indonesia, Lion Air and Air Asia – now offer online check-in between 4 and 24 hours in advance. It is free and optional for Garuda Indonesia and Lion Air, but Air Asia is taking it to a new level:

Air Asia Counter Check In Fee

To encourage passengers to use its online check-in service, Air Asia now charges a fee of Rp30 000 ($US3.50, € 2,50) per passenger who checks in at the airport.

Below is a guide about how to reconfirm flights and – where possible – check-in online.

Air Asia | Batavia Air | Citilink | Garuda Indonesia
Lion Air & Wings Air | Merpati | Sriwijaya Air

Smaller airlines e.g. Trigana Air, TransNusa, Kal-Star do not offer online check-in or reconfirmation services on their websites.

FLIGHT RECONFIRMATION

Please ask us either via email or through the “Contact” section of this page.

Sorry to say, the client cannot do it directly, because it requires a login and we can’t let you see other passenger’s data for privacy reasons.

ONLINE CHECK-IN
To avoid the Rp30 000 fee, we will complete the online check-in process straight after issuing the tickets. (Please note that seat selection is already done when the ticket is purchased). We will then forward the boarding passes as a pdf/Acrobat Reader file to the client.

UPDATE: DECEMBER 2012
AirAsia has reduced how far in advance that passengers can check-in online. It used to be as soon as the ticket was issued. Now it is:

For all return flights upon booking confirmed 14 days to 1 hour for AirAsia (AK, QZ, FD, PQ, JW) and 14 days to 4 hours for AirAsiaX (D7) before their flight.

    Update December 2011:

    Air Asia’s counter check-in fee of Rp30 000 is no more on international flights, but remains for domestic flights:

    Starting 22 December 2011, AirAsia is abolishing the Rp 30,000 counter check-in fees for all international flights. This is part of our continuous effort to reduce the cost of travelling for all of our guests in-lieu of the recent passenger service charge hike.

    Whereas counter check-in fee for domestic flights will remain as it is.
