Self-service check-in

Get your trip started

Kiosk check-in is a convenient way to check in at the airport. You can also make trip updates and requests and get ready to check your bag.


Express Bag Tags

Save time at select airports with Express Bag Tags. Add bags to your trip online or on the app during check-in. Then scan your boarding pass at the kiosk to automatically print your bag tags.

How it works:

  1. Begin check-in online or on the app
  2. Select the number of bags to check and pay if needed
  3. Download your boarding pass or print it at home
  4. Scan your boarding pass at the kiosk for Express Bag Tags
  5. Tag your bags and take them to Bag Drop


You are:

  • Flying within the U.S.
  • Booked in the Main Cabin


To access your reservation or to check in:

  • Scan your paper or mobile boarding pass
  • Enter your 6-character confirmation code (e.g. 'NSYYSZ')
  • Enter your AAdvantage® number

Once your trip appears on the screen, you can:

  • Print your boarding pass

  • Print your bag tags and attach to your checked bags
  • Change or buy a seat

  • Confirm a same-day flight change
  • Buy a day-of-departure upgrade
  • Request a 500-mile upgrade
  • Buy additional AAdvantage® miles
