With this option, they will automatically receive their boarding pass between 36 and 15 hours before their flight without needing to take any action. Passengers can also check in at the airport by using a self-service terminal or going to the check-in counter. Seat selection for Flybe flights depends on the ticket type.

Hand luggage allowance

As standard on a Flybe flight, passengers are allowed 2 items of hand baggage per person. The first standard item should not exceed 55 x 35 x 20 cm, while the smaller item, such as a handbag or a laptop case, should be able to fit beneath a plane seat. These sizes include all wheels, handles or protruding pockets. These two items must also not weigh more than 10 kg in total. Passengers should be careful that their hand luggage conforms to these regulations as items which are too large or too heavy will have to be checked in and will therefore incur an extra fee.
