You’ll need to provide identification in the form of a valid South African ID book/Smart Card, South African driver’s licence or valid passport and your boarding pass. Learn more on acceptable forms of identification. Print your boarding pass at the same time you check in, unless you're departing from George airport where you'll need to use the self-service kiosks or the check-in counter.

At the airport drop your bag off at the dedicated bag drop-off zone. Proceed through to security at least 30 minutes prior to departure for domestic flights and 40 minutes priorto departure for international flights.
