Why Fly with Porter Airlines

How to Check in

Porter Airlines offers travelers the chance to check-in in a variety of ways to suit your needs whether it’s over the web or at the airport. For those looking to check-in online or by mobile, you can do so from 24 hours before flights and are also able to print off a boarding pass or receive one electronically. Passengers are also easily able to check-in at the airport either at an airport counter or a self-service kiosk. You can check-in to your flight up to 1 hour before flight departure times.

Baggage Allowances and Fees

Passengers looking to bring baggage to check-in will need to pay an additional charge in order to do so, except for those holding a Freedom fare. For those with a Firm or Flexible fare, purchasing your first bag up to 23kg will cost 100-115AED* if purchased online. Be advised that prices are cheaper if you pay for baggage online as the rates offered at the airport are much higher. Visit the airline’s website for a full breakdown of the fees for checked baggage. As well as checked baggage, you are also able to bring two items of hand baggage on board no heavier than 9kg each free of charge.
