Why Fly with SunExpress

How to Check In

SunExpress offers online check-in for both domestic and international flights departing from Alanya-Gazipaşa, Ankara, Antalya, Bodrum, Dalaman, Elazig, Gaziantep, Istanbul (SAW), Izmir, Samsun, and Trabzon. Passengers have to provide their first and last name, as well as their reservation number. Seat selection is currently not available. For disabled passengers or passengers with reduced mobility, there are conditions set by the airline that must be met prior to the online check-in service for the passengers’ own safety.

Baggage Allowance & Fees

For international flights, each passenger is entitled to a baggage allowance of 20 to 40 kilograms depending on the tariff booked. The same applies to passengers on connecting flights. For passengers flying within Turkey, the baggage allowance per passenger is between 15 and 25 kilograms, depending on the tariff chosen. Each passenger is allowed to have one piece of carry-on luggage that weighs up to six kilograms, the dimensions not exceeding 55 x 40 x 20 cm. Hand luggage allowed includes a handbag; a coat, jacket, cape, scarf or blanket; a cane; a carrier; and a camera or binoculars. The airline offers excess baggage bundles (except sport and special baggage) for a corresponding fee. Animal transportation can be also booked, although the airline must be notified no later than three working days before departure.

Passengers are recommended to be at the SunExpress check-in counters at least two hours prior to their scheduled departure time. Those who are flying overseas should be at the gate at least 45 minutes before departure and have their boarding card ready for boarding. For flights within Turkey, passengers must be at the gate with their boarding card at least 30 minutes before departure. Since the check-in time is calculated so as to ensure the flight goes smoothly and safely, SunExpress reminds that late arrival at the departure gate automatically forfeits the passenger’s right to the flight and that the airline has the right to refuse the passenger to board the flight.
