Before Your Flight

Check-in and Boarding Pass

How can I get my boarding pass?

You can check-in for your flight at the My trips section, which you can find on our website and our app.

Is Mobile Check-In available for all routes?

Yes, mobile check-in is available for all our routes. 

If I already checked in for my flight, how early should I arrive at the airport?

We recommend you to arrive at the airport 2 hours before a domestic flight, and three hours before an international flight.

When can I check-in for my flight?

For domestic flights, you can check-in from 72 hours to 1 hour before your scheduled departure. For international flights, you can do so from 24 hours to 1 hour before your scheduled departure.

Flight Status

How will Volaris let me know if there was any update to my flight’s itinerary? 

In case there is any change, we will send you an email to the address registered during your purchase, indicating the new status of your flight.


Where can I check my flight status? 

You can go to Flight Information to stay updated on everything related to your itinerary.


Where can I change my flight’s schedule?

If you need to make a change to your flight, you can do it online on Add Services by choosing “Change your flight”. You can also do it via our Call Center on Mexico: 01 (55) 1102-8000. Remember that you must have the information of your origin and destination, as well as the original and the new departure date.

Choose Your Seat

Can I choose a seat when I purchase a ticket? 

You can choose the seat of your preference by acquiring one of our Package Deals during the booking process covering the corresponding fee, or at My Trips section.


What can I do if my seat gets relocated in spite of me having chosen my seat before flying?

You must notify one of our flight attendants, and show your boarding pass and confirmation email for your seat to be properly assigned.


Do I get Priority Boarding by choosing a seat when doing a Web Check-In?

When making a Mobile Check-In you’ll avoid queues and save time in your documentation process at the airport. By choosing a seat between the first 5 rows, you'll be one the first customers to board the plane.


Why are front row seats and emergency row seats more expensive

To reduce the cost of your ticket, we only charge you what is essential for your flight. Our front row and emergency row seats are more expensive because they give you Priority Boarding. Learn more about our Choose Your Seat option.


Reservation code

What can I do if I lost my reservation code?

To retrieve it, go to My Trips and click on Cannot find my reservation code. Then enter your departure date, origin, destination, last name, and contact email. 

Or you can also retrieve it on Facebook Messenger. Just write us a message to our official fan page, and Chatbot Vane will help you.

Get Your Invoice

How much time do I have to request an invoice and how can I do it?

You have up to 30 working days, starting on the date you purchased your ticket, to ask for an invoice. You can do it by going to “Print Invoice” on My trips.


I made a mistake on the data I entered for my invoice. Can I change it?

No, you cannot make any change. You must make sure that all the data is correct before you enter it.


Can I get an invoice on behalf of another person?

The electronic invoice is generated for every reservation. If there are several customers in the reservation, it is not possible for each one to get an invoice. On the other hand, it is your decision if you wish to use your data or someone else’s to get an invoice.


Can I get an invoice for the optional services I added to my trip?

Yes, remember that your invoice includes the amount of the ticket and all the extras you added to your trip (e.g. Baggage Guarantee, Choose your Seat, Extra Baggage, etc.).


Can I get an invoice immediately after my purchase?

Yes, all you have to do is provide us the following data, either through our Call Center, at the airport, or on our website: reservation code, name, RFC and email.


If I got an invoice for the purchase of my tickets and I changed my itinerary, will a new invoice be generated?

Yes, a new invoice is generated for every purchase made after the date of the original invoice.
